It has been absolutely ages since I have posted, but I read all your posts just about every day on my email.
So much has been happening lately and I just feel like I am going to run out of time to get everything done.
DD turned one three weeks ago and we had a party for her. It was a massive day for me and I felt really let down by the end of it as the two friends who I thought would help me out, spent the whole day gas-bagging in the yard and did not even offer to carry anything down the stairs for me. If it was their party, I would have helped out as much as I could, but it was basically left to me (and Mum, who was looking after Maddy) to run up and down the stairs all day. I never even got to sit down till well after 6pm. The other kids ran riot and even though I wanted them all outside, (I went to the toy library and hired a heap of outdoor play stuff), they TRASHED my loungeroom and their mothers didn't even clean up after them. I was not very impressed, and was in so much pain the next day I could barely even walk. Needless to say, I have told hubby that we are NEVER having another party, as they are just no fun for me.
I have partially organised DD's new room. I have to wait for my Dad to come and set up the bed, as I don't know how to put it together. It is a full sized single bed, but with a change table that sits on one end, and rails that go around, so it can be a cot, then a toddler bed, then a single. It also has a trundle underneath so that when she gets older, she can have friends over to stay. Best of all... it was FREE. Gotta love my Dad, he sanded it down and lacquered it and it looks as good as new.
Other than that, I am not very organised. I am going to Big W in the next town over on Thursday when I have my hospital booking appointment, as they are having a sale on car seats and I want to layby some other things, as well as gather up my supplies for the hospital bag. Still paying off the double pram, and I need to buy a new mattress for the bed... STILL HEAPS TO DO....
Hope everyone is well, and those of you who have has the flu, swine or otherwise, are on the mend.
