A Photo Every Hour - Saturday 19th December

December's Photo an Hour challenge fell on the last Saturday before Christmas - the 19th December.


9am - At 35 and half weeks pregnant (almost 37 at the time of writing this post!), my bed is filled with pillows and cushions to prop me up.



10am - Bending over is another thing that's difficult to do whilst pregnant, which conveniently gets me out of filling up the dishwasher!



11am - Trying to finish writing our birth plan (which I imagine will end up being absolutely nothing like what actually happens...)



12pm - Off out to the post office to send off a Christmas present.



1pm - We popped into one of the local butchers to pick up some ham.



2pm - Back home and polishing off the last bits of birthday cake from the previous weekend.



3pm - Muppets!



4pm - Writing some Christmas cards to take along to a Christmas party that evening.



5pm - Party time at a friend's house.



6pm - Obviously the only handbag I could possibly take to any Christmas party.



7pm - Whilst all the adults were gossiping at the party, the kids were having a Nerf gun war...



8pm and 9pm - No pictures as my phone was buried under a pile of coats, we were all too busy talking and I didn't really want to enter into a war zone!

 
 
10pm - Just leaving the party.



11pm - A little bit of bedtime reading.

The first date for 2016 will be Saturday 16th January - three days before my due date. Which I imagine could mean one of three things on my Instagram page: either I'll be sat around bored and fed up; at home/hospital in labour (which you probably *don't* want pictures of); or it could be 12 hours of newborn baby spam. I'm taking bets it'll be the first option...

  3. I love how your computer has picked up that "create a calm environment" in your birthplan seems like an error! Although I will obviously be keeping everything crossed for you that you get to follow your ideal birth plan and Findina arrives safely :) xxx

  6. I really enjoyed doing Photo An Hour so close to Christmas, it was lovely to see the various festive things people were getting up to (although in my case, it didn't extend beyond wrapping some presents and watching Strictly- nothing as exciting as parties!)

Thank you very much for all your lovely comments; I do have every intention of replying but sometimes life with a baby gets in the way...
