…about blimmin time, too. I’m so over snow.
At the weekend, hubby and I took TWM out to Strathclyde Park which is very near us. The loch has frozen over which is odd to see, as it’s a large body of water. There were numpties running across it, which made me imagine that I might find myself in the next series of 999 Rescue or similar, as Onlooker #2.
Managed to get out for a good walk today with the pram which was good, although was worryingly out-of-breath after half an hour or so. MUST get back on the Wii Fit. Then met the girls from our NCT class and their babies this afternoon. It’s been great to have stayed in touch with people who are at a similar stage. We see each other most weeks for a brisk(ish) walk and then hot chocolate. One of the girls has discovered peri- and then post-natally that she has blood problems – which have turned out to be caused by a rare form of leukaemia. She and her husband are handling it really well but it just makes you realise how precious life is. At the moment her prognosis is good, but she is having to give up breastfeeding now so she can have treatment next month. She is feeling so guilty for it; apparently motherhood comes with a long line of things to feel badly about.
