I just spent hours….HOURS….literally trying to go online to do my 365 upload while watching the closing ceremony of the Olympics…so am irritated. The stupid wireless router downstairs where I am staying is just not working…..ahhhhhhhh!!!
So I apologize for any weird tones in this upload as am annoyed!!!!!!
I arrived in London late last night. Much cooler here so hopefully it will stay like that – although when I went out to do my walking and some grocery shopping earlier it was quite warm….but of course cooler than Greece!
So this is it then.
The final haul.
The final leg on the journey.
No more flying, now it’s…nesting time.
I knew I had NYC to get through until I left for London with Stuart to see his family and friends. And then I knew I had London with Stuart to go through. And while in London I knew I still had Greece ahead to see my family. And then with the extension of the Greece trip that helped stall the idea of flying back to London.
And now, it’s back to London…to have the baby!!
That freaks me out! Now that I am here. On that final leg of the journey.
I still don’t know what is going on, despite my super uncomfortable flight from Athens to London last night – the little schmonkie was moving around a lot and I had a lot of pressure, and then nausea….not so great.
This little schmonkie is moving around a lot in general. A LOT!!!
Yeah, still in denial….but I do know that instead of going to bed last night after I arrived I went into work mode and wanted to unpack everything, and put all baby things away into the baby chest of drawers that I had left in the flat after I arrived from NYC, and set up things, and build the foldable stroller my mum had bought us, and read all the stroller instructions, and open the Moses basket and put the changing mat on top of the drawers, and put away all the clothes after folding them all and sorting them by size, and the baby bath tub, and the baby bath products, and the baby blankets, and the…..and the…..and…..
I was up until 4am doing all this!! Amid fighting tears and emotions that kept arising, then back to denial to push on and get it all done.
I eventually had to stop as my back was seizing.
I did too much as I am feeling the pain today in my feet, legs and back. I just had to do all I could for some reason…I get like that.
Maybe to get it out of the way in one go and not be overwhelmed multiple days, although I am overwhelmed every day, so hmmmmmm….
Okay, must post this before something with this Internet fails and I lose it!!

Anything to Note =
I leave for London today, well tonight, actually in a few hours really I will have to leave for the airport. It’s weird as one month ago today, Stuart and I were leaving NYC for London in the late evening too to go visit his family…so the 11th seems to be the travel date to London!
Odd that I left a month ago tonight from NYC. It does not feel like a month since I have been so busy and doing so much between the UK and Greece. Moved houses as well. Plus I have also been still working from my blackberry while gone, so does not feel like I have been away, especially for a whole month!
Finished my photos early this morning, and by early I mean I did not go to bed until after 4am!! Ugh. But I had to get it done before I left and I was awake so pushed through to have it all complete as still had to pack today and do other things.
It was funny though as came across some graphic, some nudey, beach topless party photos!! Ahhhh good times!! Haha!!
It was refreshing to come across some fun friends ones like that as had enough of all the ex photos. There are a few of some ex’s in the mix still as they are with others and some of those photos I just couldn’t throw away…but only a few. Otherwise, I have now successfully deleted as much as I can of the bad memories and the hurt among the photos and papers.
Next would be to actually get more photo albums and insert the mass piles that I have kept that have no place right now….another time….at least I got through them all!
On a sidenote: I noticed on my supermarket travels, and again today, that there is a huge frozen yoghurt surge in Greece! They have opened frozen yoghurt places everywhere! I mean even on the small island of Spetses they opened two within the same town, with the town being like 5 minutes long!! One of them is Greek frozen yoghurt I think, or maybe both. Anyway, that’s crazy!! I guess they have just discovered the market and it’s become like the new craze!
Should I break it to them that it’s been around for ages already around the world??!!
