Possibly a rolling list

Things Done:

Hotel booked for [livejournal.com profile] queenortart's and [livejournal.com profile] fractalgeek's bash (Sat/Sun)

Our bedroom shifted about and wall painted (1829 range, Burgundy Leather)

Cats booked in for annual jabbing

Account with Lloyds closed - what a palaver. Passed from one operative who took all the details to another - without being told that was happening. Then told he could only close the current account (and that's by sending out a set of forms to fill in and return) and I'd have to write to the branch or go in personally to close the savings and also have to deal separately with the credit card.

NCT ante-natal course booked. Yes, we're now fully public.

Things still to sort out:

Returning paperwork to Lloyds to get rid of them.

Find the least worst week to take as leave between now and mid-October (if I don't I'll collapse by Christmas)

Pay for ante-natal course

Shift bedroom back to normal

Shift about guest bedroom, paint wall (suede range) and put room back - sifting a pile of stuff to pass on to charity shops/recycling

Buy shed and move some stuff from downstairs front room in house out to it

Shift computer and bookcases from middle front room to make downstairs front room a study

Make middle front room into nursery.

"NCT ante-natal course booked."

AKA the place where you sit at the back of a room thinking "errr didn't we cover all this in school" until you get bored and start sniggering at inappropriate moments. Well that's what Hall and I ended up doing anyway : )

About 16 weeks. Due date is 11th Feb. We were seriously asked by some of the marshals if that meant we'd miss the dinner dance on 4th Feb...

Current schedule is midwife appointment on Friday. Second scan 27th and (female) consultant appointment shortly after that.

I've had varying reports about NCT - it does seem to depend on the local organisers and teachers. So far the local organiser isn't inspiring confidence, as he's answering a different question to the one we've asked.

Decisions and instructions from Penny so far are:
Minimum number of strangers in attendance
No men unless absolutely essential (except me)
Doesn't want to be induced
Probably doesn't want an epidural
I'm not allowed to leave her - even if the hospital insist partners aren't allowed to stay over if she's kept in afterwards. This is a battle we'll need to fight in advance.

Don't get me wrong the NCT people were lovely and that I just felt like it was aimed at people who had absolutely no idea how the body works...probably because they had bunked off school to drink and have sex the lucky devils !

yay, we liked our NCT class as it enabled us to meet other first time parents due around the same time. This is invaluable having others around to talk to especially after the event.
Your due date is on Owens birthday fab, are you going to find out what flavour you are having at the 20 week scan? Hugs Cx
