Today I got to speak on the phone with my really good friend Linda who is getting married soon in Australia!! And then just after that I got to have lunch with two of my very good friends Clare and Emily by the river near me.
I have not told everyone I am here or that I am pregnant even!! Let alone having the baby in London and will be here for a little while! I’ve just been so busy so haven’t had a chance yet but need to soon, before I have a baby in tow haha!!
So it was lovely to see and speak with three today!!
We went to the river to have some pub food as it was such a lovely day – the good weather is now in the UK so clearly I can’t escape the heat anywhere I go!! The weather just likes to rub it in my face that I can’t tan or get wasted 😦 So it was Pimms for them and some fizzy water for me! It was bikini tops out for them and my back to the sun to prevent my belly overheating for me! It’s funny as its August so I should be in Spetses on the beach, tanning, drinking and dancing on bars!! Instead I am shielding for cover and wishing it was colder!! Haha!!
It’s also funny as my brain switched to thinking how close I was to the river as have never walked there from my place, and how that would be a nice trip with the stroller for me and Stuart…..clearly I am in a somewhat baby brain mode within my denial to be thinking that! Progress!! Woo Hoo!!
I especially liked the reactions of Clare and Emily when I opened the door! It was funny! Emily hadn’t seen me since my hen party so now she was seeing me married and pregnant! And Clare I saw briefly when I was here registering for NHS a month ago…but I have clearly grown as they both were shocked at my pregnant whale bump! I also have switched, mostly due to the heat, from hiding the bump to no longer doing so, so it is now out there to be seen by all!!
We were talking about my bump (that Black Eyed Peas song just came into my mind with “my bump, my lovely baby bump” instead of “my hump” hahaha – sorry got distracted!!)
Anyway, we were talking about my bump and I had mentioned denial and blah blah blah and that I still bump into things or mis-judge and bump the bump. Which ironically I did THREE times now when I got home!!!
I opened the bathroom door and mis-judged to catch the belly!!
I went around the corner and again mis-judged and caught the belly on the way past!!
And then as I sat down to write this blog at the desk I pulled in the chair to hit the belly as I had gone too far!!!!! That actually happens to me the most. I go to pull the chair closer as I feel so far away from the desk or table, but forget that there is a giant bump in the way so cannot get that close! It’s just weird!

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!!!
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!!!!
