(I am blooming!)
There are a number of considerations we have had to take account of:-
- I spend 4 hours commuting – door to door
- As I get bigger – it is taking me longer to traverse distances which were previously deemed ‘short’
- By the time I get to my return train, most seats are taken
- Nobody, absolutely nobody will stand to give a pregnant woman a seat
- Much as I love my job it is stressful
Ian and I agreed that the aggregate of above might have negative effects on our health. So, I work for another 3 weeks in London and finish with working from home for another 3 weeks in January.
Then, the other day one of my friends sent me a little mum-to-be package in the post. It contained contact details for non toxic paint suppliers (for nursery) and an overview of child development (benefits of different sounds at certain stages) among other things. She will also be giving me all her terry nappies, as I am keen not use disposables and she will lend me her Moses basket as she thinks babies do not spend much time in them so worth borrowing. She is so generous, lovely and considerate. Sarah I love you!
I am on the scrounge for ideas for the nursery. We do not know the sex (will find out at birth) and not sure of essential furniture/equipment. Sarah has already given me some tips but would also be good to hear from you knit sibs. So what is essential and what is a waste of time? Which makes are good and which are also good value for money?
