Just that really! Very excited to be finishing work till bubbas arrive!

33+6 with twins and I've had enough of being in the office, I want my bed, chick flicks and the odd cream tea with friends whilst on the countdown for bubbas to arrive.

Whoop its almost time! -does a rather wobbly dance in her chair-

If the wait was anything like mine at that point it will fly by smile feels like only last week I was moaning I still had 6 weeks to go and now its here grin

Been clearing out drawers and handing things to my colleagues, as soon as 12:45 comes its gonna be a case of 'I'm pregnant, get me outta here!' hehe.

Enjoy! I'm on day 2 of mat leave today. Loving it so far. Still in pjs. Considering a swim, but then again, may have a nap.

It's lovely having abundant time! No pressure to do anything!

Congrats! X

Oh depressing - I'm back at work in 3 weeks and desperately don't want to return!

Have a lovely, lovely time - it is hard work but also fabulous.

Congratulations! I finished at lunchtime today for my maternity leave, 34+2. Rather overdid it running around this afternoon and am VERY much looking forward to doing as little as possible for the next few weeks! smile
