Maternity ‘Holidays’

1st JulyI feel somewhat cheeky calling them ‘Maternity Holidays’, but I have always loved how my sister-in-law, Alison used the term.  Truth be known I personally find it more challenging and physically demanding being at home than I do going to work.  Maybe it has something to do with the fact that I am 42 and having my second child in 5 weeks!

I also find it difficult to ‘relax’ at home as I am such a task driven person – always having things on the ‘list’ to tick off!  Mmmm …. after all I am in the confinement stage of my pregnancy so I should just take it easy.

Well I didn’t actually heed this advise over the weekend – true to form my hormonal nesting kicked in and I was on a mission.  As we are moving our bedrooms around to cater for our extra family member, we have had to move quite a bit of furniture and all that ‘STUFF’ that you have in your cupboards!  Do you have ‘stuff?’.  Where does it all come from?

I am a self-confessed hoarder and find it difficult to throw any sentimental things out.  I have kept all my old school books, art projects, running carnival ribbons from Grade 6, photos, cards, invitations, letters and old diaries.  I just can’t bear to get rid of them but as a result I have boxes in storage piled high with ‘memorabilia’.  I wish I was more brazen and able to part with material items.  My cupboards and drawers are now very tidy and our recycling bin is full, so I did part with some stuff.

All in all it was a very quiet weekend but I did take Poppy to the playground early on Saturday morning and we were the only ones there!  Bliss.

In closing, this is my 400th post for my blog which I started in August 2011! I still love posting photos and my day-to-day musings and find it such a creative outlet for me.  Bring on another 400!  xx
