whether it's time out just you, you and hubby, pampering, planning more prep for birth etc?

Just out of interest smile

Sleeping when I felt like it.

Watching a whole TV programme in one go.

Being able to just 'pop out'

Definitely popping out! Even just to the garage! And sitting quietly in a cafe without having to worry about people waking DC up!

Anything involving the use of both hands.


Sort out those cupboards. Cut back/prune/plant out house and garden plants.

Keep a pen and pad handy to write a list of 'things to do' as it's much easier than keeping it all in an hormonally charged brain.

I finished work too late and ended up totally exahusted so I would say resting. A bit of self pampering and self indulgence are a good idea as soon you may feel like you have no time for yourself!
