When I looked back over these diary entry posts to see when I last wrote one, I was shocked to see my last was 3 MONTHS AGO. That’s crazy! Especially since I intended for these to go out every 2 or 3 weeks. But I suppose it’s to be expected, I’ve had a lot going on, with growing a human and all. Plus I’ve still done posts where I update on pregnancy and such, so I probably didn’t feel the need (or have the energy!) to write something like this.
Anyway, let’s dive in shall we?
I have a busy weekend planned, lots to do before Monday. My Mum is coming to visit Monday until Wednesday; a very short trip, but it should be a really lovely one! I realised I haven’t seen her since before I was pregnant, it’s been at least 6 months! It’s horrible being so far away, and I hate that she’s not just around the corner while I’m pregnant tbh, but it’s so great to catch up. Gary and I now have a car too, so we can take her out exploring Plymouth properly which I think she will love.
So before Mum visits, I need to clean and tidy the whole house so that she thinks we’re some sort of grown ups, obviously. It’s not that our place is awful, it’s just we have a tendency to leave washing around until it absolutely has to go away, and I leave all my paints and canvases around just waiting to be picked up, LOL. So yeah, a tidying weekend is on the cards.
I’ll also be packing up and posting Etsy orders, doing two custom paintings I’ve had requested, scheduling a bunch of tweets to keep things ticking over while Mum’s here, and maybe topping up my hair colour (It’s gone from a vivid green to more of a turquoise/blue, which is nice, but not what I’m after!).
I definitely need to ask you guys for TV and podcast recommendations too; because this week I binge watched The Sinner on Netflix in one day (loved it), I’m about to finish watching How I Met Your Mother (for the thousandth time), and I’ve just fully caught up on all My Favourite Murder podcast episodes. So I’m in dire need of some new entertainment! All recommendations welcome! 🙂 As for movies though; Gary and I recently seen the new Jurassic World film (loved it), watched The Intern on Netflix (heart warming), and we plan to go see Ocean’s 8 next week. Anything else in the cinema or on Netflix I should keep an eye out for?
As I’m writing this it’s just TWO WEEKS AWAY from finding out the sex of our baby, and I couldn’t be more thrilled! It’ll be lovely to finally know which of our chosen names we will be using, and to feel a bit closer to baby, if that makes sense? I’ll admit, I am kind of hoping for a certain result (like I’m sure a lot of people do, it’s natural); but obviously it will make absolutely ZERO difference the moment I know who is in my tummy. As long as baby is happy and healthy, I can’t wait for him/her to join our team!
Anyway, I best be off now as my to-do list for the day is as long as my arm (very almost literally!). I hope you guys are doing well, and I’m so grateful for anyone who reads these ramblings.
Have a great day!
