Today is the little monkey’s due date!!! It was supposed to be our Greek Spetses wedding today…which I am sorry for again everyone…and I will extend your free tequila shot coupons for next year, so don’t worry!

It is 10pm here in London however, and the little monkey is still crammed in my belly, and has yet to make his way into the world! Although I have a lot of pressure and a lot of pains, so technically it is probably better for him to appear for the both of us BUT it’s scary so ahhhhhhh!!

Well, two hours of the due date to go….hmmmm….

I took my final belly photo today so here is the long awaited nine months of belly shots…which is hilarious as there are two major jumps in bump whale-ness!! And, as you can see from today’s 40 weeks photo – I am HUUUUUUUGE!!

Again with the Spetses hours!!

I went to bed at 6am this morning….again!!!

It’s funny though as I felt like crap when going to bed so late as I was so tired – it felt like I was drunk!!! And then getting up after such few hours also felt crap, like I was hungover!! So great….I get the effects of drinking all night and I don’t get any alcohol!!!! Not fair!!!

It’s just too hard to go to bed any earlier when trying to see people. And I was really dying this morning from the Spetses hours yesterday at the bar. But I wanted to see people so had to stay out. And I went down there to see Thanassi but with him working and such I felt guilty that I did not spend more time with him.

I got to also spend time with my older brother too though – we also just drove back together from Spetses as I got a ride back with him to Athens since he has work tomorrow. So that was nice. But I was soooo busy over the day and a half I was there I have no clue if I left something behind or what as I was literally running until the ferry boat!!!!

I could have stayed more but I needed to come back to be with my parents and continue to help with the unpacking crazy mode here before I leave in 6 days and can’t help them anymore. And of course to be around while all this stress is going on and they are not so well.

But it’s always hard leaving Spetses.

It is truly where I call home and where I feel the most connected to, so leaving is just an icky feeling.

I did get to have my waffles and ice cream today for breakfast/lunch!!


And I got to also jump in the sea again for two seconds!! So schmonkie had his second swim 🙂 But then had to do things like clean up, get some things for Thanassi, do some of his laundry – wanted to help out with as much as I could since he started work straight away when he arrived in Spetses.

I know I couldn’t do everything. And I couldn’t see everyone. So I am sorry to those who I did not get to see but I was running around and tried!!!

The next time I see the peeps on Spetses I will have a baby in tow which is CRAZY!!!!! So I got a million wishes like…

“Good Luck!”


“Have a good labour!”


“We hope you have a painless labour!”


“Congratulations on the upcoming birth of your baby!”

What the??????!!!!!!!!!!!

I am in Spetses!!!!!

It’s the baby’s first trip to Spetses!!!!!

Since I extended my trip in Greece I had to find time to come down to Spetses to see my brother as he found a job working at one of the bars down here and so coming down would be the only way to see him. I tried to find boat tickets but they were all full and then suddenly my sister-in-law’s sister and her husband and child decided to drive down for the weekend so hitched a ride down with them!

The driving was a little insane I have to say!!! And those curves around the mountains are a killer – more so being pregnant! Was having to fight the nausea with my usual trick – turning my head to the side of the turn!! It works!! But you look and feel ridiculous!!

Anyway, had to go all the way into town to find wifi to write this and it’s super late as got stuck seeing people and having dinner and then having a drink (sprite!!) out and only now got down to write this!!

And better go as people are waiting since I am only here until Sunday – so only a day and a half!! Although I am exhausted!!!

I am sad that Stuart is not with me though out here – wish you were here Stuart!!

Hey I always said that I would be at the Rendez Vous bar with baby in tow….well, I guess I was right!! And it’s not even born yet haha!!!!
