Am working my way through surveys and also some product testing (doesn't make any money but yay, free stuff!)
I was in a grumpy mood yesterday but today's been a good day I went into town again with a friend and had lunch (£10 at Giraffe, very nice) and got my bracelet fixed and cleaned (for free!)
I had a growth scan yesterday and an appointment with the diabetes consultant- they reckon baby is 7lbs 10 already :eek: All of the newborn clothes only go up to 9lbs, I'm starting to worry none of them will fit xD I'm going to be having a c-section in my 38th week but they can't confirm when yet- I'll get a call on the 26th and it could be anytime that week!
So, less than 3 weeks to go!!! Very exciting
Plan of action for the next couple of days
- Finally sort out the living room shelves so they look pretty
- Sort out riotdude's random boxes of books
- Ebay whatever I find that's sellable
- Keep up with surveys
- Call my Granny and email riotdude's to give them an update
- Make chicken noodle soup from last night's leftover chicken
- Repack hospital bag with a mix of newborn and 0-3 clothes in case of very chunky baby
I have checked in with both the Grannys though and riotdude made some very lovely chicken soup so can tick both of those off the to-do list.
Last night riotdude and I went out to the pub quiz- spent £12 on dinner and then £6 on a couple of drinks (helps that I can't have any alcohol!) so a reasonably cheap night out Plus possibly one of the last we're going to get in a while!!
Plan for today-
- Organise stationary and crafting materials
- Put away baby stuff from surprise shower my friends threw me
- Go to Barclays and see if I can get my new debit card working
- Go to the post office
- List last few bits and bobs on ebay
- Take rubbish out
I've had a very productive day today (although I went out to the post office and forgot to try and sort my debit card at the bank while I was there, d'oh!) but I feel like this might just kick me into overdrive
Trying to get lots of washing done today and fiiiiinally sort things out with Barclays. Should be a no spend day as we have plenty of food in the house.
Didn't end up being a no-spend day as I spotted my favourite deoderant half price in Super Drug, so I stocked up on a couple of cans and my Granny sent us some money to buy a baby carrier so I bought that off Amazon.
