Today was just a random day, full of lots of different random things that kept me busy….
First up – had to get up as Stuart was up early to play golf with his brothers and dad, but before he left his mother made a full English breakfast…so I had to be up for that!!!!!! I could smell the bacon and goodies downstairs 🙂 Nothing beats a good English breakfast!! Yummy!!
After that – Stuart’s mum and I went to the nail salon. We didn’t think it would be that long but got stuck behind a family getting their nails done….oddly, it was a family of young girls getting their nails done while another family waited and watched. Which was sad actually, as these girls were young and obviously this other family of girls were not allowed to have them done so they just had to watch 😦 They did ask a few times and got a little upset and stroppy when they kept being told “No”. Although it was bizarre – as these girls were super young and getting fake nails on!! It must have been for some event like a wedding or something…or I hope so as it was just weird!
Then off to Costa coffee – with Stuart’s mum to meet up with her special someone.
Then – heading to Stuart’s brother’s house to have a quick hello and cup of tea with the three little cute kids since Stuart’s brother was off playing golf for the day.
And then – home for a quick change and some crumpets.
Before heading to the – Harlequin to help out behind the bar for a dance show they were having in the theatre which was supposed to have 400 some odd people attend. They were understaffed and so I said I would help out. Arrived there at 6pm and instead of having time to look around and figure out whats what I was thrown in as there were already people arriving and queuing up. At first I started by helping others and then there was just too many people so had to dive in and do orders too. It was funny as I of course had to figure out the cash register and where everything was and how much everything was as well as figure out what the UK “drink slang” meant and what it was!! So as I passed Stuart’s mum or others I knew who worked there I would ask them sneakily on my way!! It’s quite organized though there so soon caught on but it was just a funny process – should have been my video upload of the day!!! If only someone could have been filming from the side!! Especially with some muck-ups like giving the wrong change, typing in the item three times instead of once on the cash register, not being able to find the correct pint glasses for the different beers! 🙂

I am leaving on a jet plane…
It’s LEAVING DAY!!!! It’s TRAVEL DAY!!!!
I think I’ve mentioned this before in another blog, but it’s funny because Stuart and I are leaving today – Stuart for only two weeks right now – but we’re not flying on the same flight! We leave within 20 minutes of each other from JFK, from different terminals, on different airlines – me on BA and Stuart on Virgin (which is way better!). And we arrive within 20 minutes of each other at Heathrow tomorrow, different terminals.
It worked out cheaper this way as I had to get on a BA flight to be on the same return flight as my mum when I come back to the States, but the cheapest flights were not BA, so Stuart did one of those cheap-not-know-you’re-airline sites and got on Virgin – so that was cool!
So we’ll see each other when we drive to JFK tonight and then I will see him again when I get picked up tomorrow morning after we arrive! Strange!!
If only we could communicate across the ocean, thousands of miles up in the air!!
If only BBM worked while flying haha!!
I will miss him 🙂
But we get to save money so that’s a bonus!
If I make it to the plane as still haven’t packed and am at the office…..aHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!
So this is my last day in America until JANUARY!!!
For just under 6 months!!!
Next time I’ll be back in the USA it will be in 2013 with a little schmonkey!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I was a walking (or rather a rushing around) zombie today!
I was back late last night and then had to do some packing or sorting – sorting into piles though! Organized and neat piles! I managed to get through all the baby stuff and some of the items I need to take over for other people that I had bought over the last month or so – and then it got too late! So I felt like I got nowhere! I was hoping to do better than that but the baby stuff took longer than I thought, and I had some other things I was doing.
I was hoping to get through at least going through all of the bedroom – I like to cover one room at a time when I pack. I gather than pile and then pack. But after the baby/bought stuff I managed to only get through half of the bedroom!!
And then I had to stop. Or rather I was told to stop by Stuart. And my dad via BBM. Well, it was 1am. And I’m pregnant! But I wanted to keep going. And I’m pregnant. I could have kept going. But they were right because as soon as I lay down to watch TV in bed my back was jarring up a bit, so obviously I had already done too much.
Ugh – pregnancy!!
I just can’t do as much as I used to…
I had a full day today too with work, then doctors appointments, picking up doctor’s copies of my records to take with me, showing of an apartment, then up to see two peeps…
So I was home once again after 10pm and have been sorting into piles and now its 1am again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So I think I really will have to leave the actual packing between going to the office and the plane leaving tomorrow – which is a little crazy!
Let’s hope I make the plane!!!!!!
I am running out of time!!!!
I can’t believe I am leaving tomorrow!!!!
I don’t know how to pack for 6 months!!!!!!!!!! AHHHHHH!!!

I had a crappo night last night.
No sleep again 😦
Yesterday evening I started to feel really uncomfortable…higher than my baby bump…in my ribs area…was the little schmonkey there perhaps? Or my organs shifting?
I don’t know.
Every time I lay down I felt like I couldn’t sit up again but roll to get up as it was tender and weird.
There is just no room to expand – and when you think about it it’s really strange…making room for a growing alien!! Organs moving around and out of the way…what the???!!!!
So amid the discomfort this little alien was obviously on my bladder all night, which meant I had to pee constantly!!! But could never empty my bladder, so it was a looooong night of constant waking up and going to the loo….Nice!!
I see that the little schmonkey already has its control over me!!
As a result I had dreams of being at camp?? Strange!
This whole thing is just bizarre! Strange! Weird! Odd!
The miracle of life….more like the freaky miracle of life!!!!!!
