4 days to go and this week has been about ticking the last of the things off my to do list. And they aren’t super exciting things either. Pretty boring things like buy slippers and granny undies for the hospital bag. Get finn a new school shirt. Upload receipts for BAS. Organise wardrobes and clean house before MIL arrives. I am really hoping she doesn’t open some cupboards and wardrobes in the house. Toes have been done and hair is on Saturday squeezed in after a blood test. Because goodness knows when you’ll get time to get these things attended to with a newborn. And do you like my matchy matchy nightie and slipper combo? I love how much navy and white is in the shops right now as it’s my favourite colour combo……….
Finish a little cardigan and buy buttons for cardigan. Write thank you notes for the twins party. Wash and organise bassinet, sheets, blankets, wraps and the carseat. Reschedule therapy appointments, swimming lessons and things we won’t do next week. And more washing and cleaning. It’s been like a laundromat the past week as I try to get on top of it and all put away.
I love when people are telling me to take it easy………but I am. By the end of the day when the kitchen is cleared up after dinner and little ones have been bathed, I settle on the couch with my peppermint tea and everyone reads to me, I sign off reading journals and pick up my knitting. And try to stay awake until daddy comes home. But the real fun begins next week when a little newborn comes home from hospital with me…..we all know that is when I’ll really be busy. And I can’t wait……I’m so excited I might start counting down the hours………..
