I'm back at work on Wed after 16 months off.
Should I do nice things or get the house tidy/meals prepped etc?
If it helps dh & I will both be part time so usually one of us at home.

Pace around feeling stressed.

Sorry, I'm back soon too grin

I vote for treat yourself if you have any spare coppers left.

I would do as litle housework as possible and enjoy the last two days with my baby.

Both you and your DH are part time, no reason to go crazy on cleaning or cooking

Good I won't feel guilty then grin
This week should be ok but next week a bit hectic with schools back.

Nothing, absolutely nothing.

Enjoy it, you'll be up to your ears in no time. Enjoy this last few hours (but make sure you know what you are going to wear on Wednesday).

I have new jeans & new Tshirts. Need to make sure the good bras are clean. Only have two & still leak milk everywhere

Do nice things!

I went shopping for new work clothes. The excuse was that I was expressing milk at lunchtimes and needed 'suitable' smart clothes for that, (wrap-style tops etc). Of course I could have managed with blouses but it was a good excuse grin

Today was nice things but tomorrow I've got to go to the tool hire place hmm & packed lunch shoppinghmm. going to toddler group in the afternoon to distract me though.

Dd3 is teething though & feeding all night. Doesn't seem to be the best week for work.
