Operation 365 Poem: day 223…Rain

Rain

Rain rain go away
I can’t even believe you fell today
The clouds show you’re going to stay
What a load of covered grey
I can see the sun trying to say Hey
Why won’t you let her come out to play?
You better be gone by next weekend, okay?
Or you will see a bride in dismay
Carrying a soggy sad bouquet
With a tan faded to the colour of clay
Rain at a wedding is good luck they say
I prefer a sunshine ray
Guests are nodding, so do they
Especially as this is their beach vacay
So without further delay
Everyone take a moment to pray
So we can shout Yay!
Sun Obey!!
Hurray!

Firstly…the little monkey is still in the belly…so two days late now. He’s still in there fighting to get some elbow, knee, body, well, any kind of room!

I have a hospital appointment tomorrow morning that was scheduled if he didn’t arrive anyway by now, so let’s see…

I am still getting lots of pressure and pains, which makes me want to move around or shift positions or something…but this lovely UK rain just hinders me walking around the block.

I really wanted go out yesterday, although still trying to recover completely from this cold before the baby comes, but it was raining all day. And there is a fun fair on the green near us that me, my dad and Stuart went to on Friday and played some games….and lost! So I wanted to go back yesterday as it was the last day…but no, it was pouring all day 😦

Those stupid fun fair machines are so addictive and annoying! You know these ones…

The coins are just hanging off the ledge waiting to be pushed off and make me rich!! And then they get you as there are bank notes just hanging there too…that appear to just need a slight nudge by me putting in one coin! Just one coin…or one more…or how about a few more….arghhhh now my pockets are empty!!!

Soooo annoying!! And I know I can’t get those notes but what if…I mean, WHAT IF, I can do it???!!!

I find these way more fun than slot machines …although my dad and I also like the claw machines that can grab a toy – sadly also annoying and hard! But strangely addictive! We’ve won a toy before but at this fun fair we all walked away with nothing!

So, I was hoping to go back and get something after I spent all those coins! I would feel better if we walked away with something! You know, and redeem ourselves!

But, no, the rain wouldn’t let me….so we missed out 😦 Which probably is best in the financial long run I guess!

And again it was raining out today – pouring this morning – but cleared enough to have a quick wander out in the late afternoon. However, with this pressure and pains it feels like the little monkey could come anytime so I have to be careful with how far I go. But tomorrow’s forecast is RAIN….surprise surprise!!

Horrible out today in merry and sunny (not) ol’ England!

It has been raining ALL day long!!! ALL DAY LONG!!!

Grey.

Windy.

Cloudy.

Rain.

Cold.

Such a pleasant environment, hey!!!

It’s a perfect time to watch movies and do nothing under the covers…but I am not good at doing that when I have so much on my mind…and so much going on inside my belly!!!

The little monkey is still here with us….or rather, he is still crammed and crunched and putting a lot of pressure on me and pains but still from the inside!

However, a good friend of mine said that the little monkey should wait to come out until after the 23rd so that he would be past being on the cusp of two astrological signs…which I know nothing about! I mean, I know literally nothing about signs and what they represent, so would never consider that, but I think though that the little monkey was listening to his Auntie as he has remained from saying hello in this astrological cusp!

Astrological signs really do elude me. I feel quite out of it as everyone around me seems to really know things and take their signs seriously – or even consider someone’s signs when dating – or my favorite is when someone asks what sign you are and I would say “Taurus” and they go “Ohhhhhhhhhh!”

It appears I make sense to them after I have revealed to them what sign I am????!! What the??!! Still so foreign to me!!

I am not going to offend anyone as I know people really believe in it all…I just don’t. I mean, I don’t know enough about it….but I am a little hesitant with it all. Sorry believers!!

Do people who really believe in signs…do they plan their babies around it? Is that a real thing?

Well, as we reach the end of the 23rd of September today this therefore means no cusp now, and the little one will therefore be a Libra….is that a good thing or a bad thing? What does a Libra mean?

I guess I will have to read up 🙂

I took my mum to the river today on a walk. She had never been down there and it’s not very far away from home – and of course we seized the moment as it was sunny and hot outside…which it hasn’t been really here at all…of course I will take the cold gladly after the hot hot hot of NYC and Greece I have been through 🙂

But the stereotype of England is rain…and sadly it is more truth than myth. It has been raining a lot and quite poopy, and not a warm summer at all so there hasn’t been a day to go to the river and walk down there and show my mum….so today was the day!

It was nice down there. We went to the pub and had some lemonade and some fries 🙂 And looked at the river view…as well as take in the scenery of a crazy woman at the table behind us! She had two chiuwawa dogs and was just quite the character! I tried to get some of it on my video upload but I wish I had caught her introduction. There were two women originally sitting at the table next to us and she actually came up to them and said she wanted that table!! She said then to them to tell her when they were leaving as she was going to wait! Well these women were pissed off with that, so of course they left and didn’t tell her – so when the woman finally noticed, and it took her a while, she called them Bitches! Loudly! Which of course made me and my mum laugh out loud. And so she turned to us and said “you heard me”! Well who wouldn’t??!! I think she was glad we heard honestly as then she wouldn’t stop going on about how bad those women were! While trying to take control of her dogs…a little crazo!!!!

But we’re all a little crazo really!

My attention quickly averted to a father with his little boy, who kept crying every time he didn’t get what he wanted! Perhaps a future premonition to what it may be like with the little schmonkie!!!! Oy vey!

It is funny how my mind has shifted to noticing little kids more, and I get flashes of what life may be like or could be like, or just notice things that could be perfect for life with (as Stuart said yesterday that was a shocker to hear) OUR SON!!!!

OUR SON!!!!!

Wowza!

But on our walk back, after some exploration of roads, we ended up near a huge park with soooo many kids playing on the cool play swings and slides and even a water pool….it was amazing! I was a jealous big kid 🙂 But then I was also eyeing how we got there to remember for when OUR SON is around to take him!! Weird!!

And I just kept noticing more parks and picnic areas and strollers along the route home. Especially how perfect The Chiswick House will be – which is something like 60 acres of perfect baby greenery.

It was nice but I overdid it with how much walking – now my back keeps seizing 😦

Back to the baby book so that I have a name for OUR SON!! Can’t seem to get used to that at all!! Am trying to by saying it in capitals over and over though haha!

Happy First of the Month!!! Happy August!!!

I woke up this morning to what looked like a sky that would rain! It really looked like it was going to rain hard today – which is so rare in Greece in the summer. But I woke to clouds, dark clouds, covering the whole of the sky…it was actually nice as it was a bit cooler, so I secretly wished for this…or not really rain, but it to be cooler!!

However, sadly it passed in a couple of hours and now it is super hot again and sunny and bright and everything I would usually LOVE – beach and tanning weather!!

But with my bump, I long for the colder weather!!!

20120801-201439.jpg

Which is even crazy I’m saying that!

I never thought the day would come where I would long for the cold over tanning weather on the beach!!! That is sad!!!

I was going through old photos in the unpacking and chucking and soooooo many of them are from Spetses and the beach and tanning and of course drinking, which is a whole other topic haha!!…..but back to the hot summers…I am super jealous of how tanned and how non-whale like I was!!!!

Boo!!!!
