Happy First Day of the Month!!
I can’t believe it.
As my dad said in his BBM messages this morning – September is Bubbles month!! And will bring us hopefully all luck and strength and all things good!!
Well, Mr. Bubbles, that is a lot of pressure on you down there in my belly! 🙂
I hope September is a good month. And will bring all that to my family.
September – me oh my!
Very surreal really. September means that I have three weeks to my due date and that’s just….makes me speechless actually.
I had a tough day yesterday after those two bad pains I got…it freaked me out a little so had a tough evening. And now it’s September! That’s not going to help my freak-o-meter…it hasn’t!
Do you know what would help??? A shot of tequila!!

I watched the official start to the London Olympics last night until 3am!!! With the time difference it meant that the opening ceremony didn’t start here in Greece until 11pm and it lasted four hours so it was not over until 3am…..and I of course felt obligated to watch it all despite how tired I was.
I actually missed the start of it, that had Kenneth Brannaugh in it and what looked like an explanation of the pilgrimage and history or something. I was on the phone and so kept peeking in to see but I couldn’t quite figure it out.
But I only missed a little bit so then I was in it for the long haul….with my one eye open at the end, watching the 200 something countries enter with all their athletes that took ages, determined to stay awake though until the end. Nothing some late night snacks couldn’t fix!!
Of course it was supposed to be a family event but both of my parents fell asleep before the ceremony even started! We are in crazy moving and packing mode here so they are both exhausted poor things. My mum went up to wait until it started and fell asleep and my dad sat near me but was out and then kept waking up now and then but immediately dropping off again!!
It felt a little sad actually as the Olympics were going to be a family event. I worked hard to get some tickets for us all to at least be a part of it all together and now I am not sure any of us will get to see anything now live.
Granted the tickets Stuart and I got in the second round were not great – handball and hockey. But I picked those as they are events that are in the Olympic village and were cheap and were available, and so we could at least go in and see everything that you need a ticket to see. But Stuart is back in NYC so he won’t see them. And my mum and I will probably extend our flights to be in Greece a little longer than this Monday – which is when we have booked to fly back to the UK – but we have to be out of the house by tomorrow which we could not anticipate and we are not ready and we just can’t leave on Monday. So tomorrow I will have to change our flights.
Also now there’s talk of whether I should even be going while pregnant with all the crowds and the talk of security issues and that it will be hot and….I would have still liked to go though, but hmmmm….
Regardless, I do have to get back to London soon as my deadline to not fly approaches, plus I just feel, yes in denial, and not in reality, but very….what’s the word…not ready…UNPREPARED…that’s the word!!!!! Seriously. I have no clue what’s going on, but also what hospital, what doctor, what is going on with me and the NHS. Nothing!!! So I can’t extend too long.
Will have to figure out travel plans tomorrow amid the move!

Today was a hard day.
I left the UK for Greece to go see my family and help them out with the hard times and moving and packing and the crappo-ness for a few days before I cannot fly again.
And I have not seen my parents since the NYC wedding as have not been able to leave the country due to my green card process….sadly even when both of my parents fell ill at different times. That has been tough and sad and so of course could not wait to see them.
I also had to leave Stuart.
And I know Stuart goes back to NYC Thursday so leaving today is just two days before that but it was the cheapest flight when I booked and I had to get out here.
I had to say goodbye to him at the airport this morning as I will not be seeing him until after Fashion work, which is past September 15th at least.
That is so far away. It’s a little unbelievable but the emotions still set in a bit as I hugged him and kissed him bye for two months.
I did not want to leave. I did not want to go through security. I kept turning back to blow a kiss or say bye or wave. It was so hard.
So this part goes out to him….
I just want you to know Stuart that I love you.
I miss you already Stuart.

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! 🙂
