Thank you all for your lovely comments on my last post, they really mean a lot to me.
So, I'm going to be induced tomorrow (Sunday) and baby will probably be born sometime Monday. They've decided to bring me forward after I had a scan on Thursday. It's nothing major but to cut a long story short, the obstetrician thinks this one may already be fully cooked. So who knows when I'm going to get my quince jam done....
I've just come back from a little walk in the park with Lucy. Behind the trees there, is the Launceston General Hospital (known locally as the LGH), and that's where the action will be taking place.
Lucy loves this park, there's so much to smell. Five years ago I wouldn't have been able to let her run around off the lead like this, she'd give me a cheeky look over her shoulder as if to say "see ya, I'm off on an adventure!" and no amount of calling or chasing would induce her to come back. I'd have to revert to the reverse psychology thing of walking in the opposite direction, thankfully this usually worked. Thereafter she was always on the lead.
She's mellowed now, thank goodness, but still has her moments. I suppose she wants to keep the spirit of adventure alive, just toned down a bit.
And now we're about to embark on another adventure. Since Thursday the anxiety levels have been a bit high, but I have Anthony who is my rock. I also have my family and friends (including you peoples) who are wonderful support.
I'll keep you posted, don't know when but I will...
