Up the creek and through the mill

No, firstly, I haven’t had the baby yet. She’s still allegedly got another 2 weeks to cook. I’ve been quiet lately due to being holed up in Teignmouth with the mother since Shep is STILL away and I can’t really be home alone this close to hatching date. Also I am feeling a bit reluctant to invite contact with a good few people right now, hence low facebook activity. But thats another rant.
The last few weeks of my degree stuff were arduous to say the least and did involve several meltdowns due to evil stomach infection the week of my last exam and me throwing up over the kitchen sink about an hour prior to said exam. not fun and mentally well, a bit too much for me. I don’t have my progression results yet. If I can graduate this year then great but if I can’t, no one can say I didn’t bloody well try – which is more than can be said for a few other people I know – see above. Grrrrr.

Meanwhile I have been having a lovely time at chez mama. Mostly we have been collecting up random baby things from charity shops and hospital bag things from random shops around here. I have begun collecting Beatrix Potter books from said charity shops – I now have 8! Yes, I know I could just buy a set but this has amused me plus I don’t want my daughter to be overly precious about new/fancy things. She has also aquired a v cool black and white velour all in one to make her look like a cat for Ā£1.75 from Cancer Research.

Apart from that I have mostly been idling along the beach and eating ice creams and generally resting and hugging the cats. The baby has been busy doing her pointy baby dance at all hours.

    Well done on finishing your course. Like you said, you have worked very hard to get there and I really hope that you are able to graduate this year. You have so many reasons to keep your head high – you have gone through a crazy couple of years (in the time that I have “known” you and, from what you have said, before that too) and you’re coming out the other side an even better woman.

    The hatchling is already on a good path in life as she has you as her mummy. A sense of humility and an appreciation of the value of money are sentiments that kids should learn from the get go.

    Not long now, keep smiling!

    A strange time, the last couple of weeks. It’s been compared to waiting to go over the trench top in the First World War. By a bloke, I believe.
