  • Saw the lady boys of Bangkok
  • Got annoyed that my feet swelled up, even if it was in the very last week!
  • Said goodbye to our housemate of two years, sorry Lynne!
  • Decided to put my old banger of a car back on the road after four years, it’s not quite there yet!
  • Went to the foodies festival

 

 

  • Got my c section approved
  • Confirmed that I’m moving house in July
  • Had a bloody amazing massage
  • Started nesting, which was weird as I am not normally a particularly tidy person, but I’ve been on a MISSION I tell you!
  • Read a fair few books (kindle convert now, despite previous views on them!)
  • Met lots of lovely bloggers, firstly a Sunday Picnic (at a pub!) for a slightly drizzly and clown infested lunch with Skye [Even Artichokes Have Hearts], – Ria  [Wishing For Chanel] & Michelle [daisy butter] who I’d met before, and  Katie [Hook, Line and Sink Her] & – Erin [E-Elise] who I hadn’t!
  • The next weekend met Lyndsay [Fizzy Peaches] & Laura [Chambray & Curls] for the first time and Carrie [Carrie Brighton]and Laura [Lola & Behold] again for a lovely Bills lunch, and a chat in Pavilion Gardens!

And now it’s June, the official birth month of ‘Baby Brighton’ (so called by Amy!) and I cannot WAIT! Hopefully Sam and I will be able to go out for one last dinner before sproglet arrives, and our lives are never quite the same again…

 

This was taken a few days ago…
I’ve only managed to pre-write a couple of posts in my week of maternity leave (so much for getting all the things I wanted to done, all I’ve achieved is sorting the house out, which admittedly IS an achievement I guess…) so apart from those posts I’ll be back (minus the bump plus a baby!) when I’m back! I’ll be on twitter whilst I’m in hospital I’m sure… and will be letting everyone know whether it’s a boy or a girl at some point too!
