getting a quick update in before life changes and I don't have time for
things like playing on the internet!
new member of the Cottage family is due any day and we're both busy
practicing nappy techniques and reading various 'how to get your baby to
sleep through the night' failsafe instruction manuals.
from a fantastic two week break in Jan/Feb in Antigua with Paul and
Antonia, this year has mostly been about getting ready for the new
arrival. The laundry room has been transformed into a nursery
(thank goodness Ikea and mothercare are in Abu Dhabi) and we've spent
weekend after weekend test driving pushchairs - it really is a tougher
decision than a new car.
signed up for all the antenatal classes on offer, plus Abu Dhabi Mums,
Bumps & Babes and any other support network we can find!
think we're finally ready, just sitting waiting now. If all goes to
plan, we're hoping to spend a bit longer than usual in the UK this
summer so that we can introduce Cottagette to grass, rain, maybe even
just the outside world as she won't be seeing much of that here during
her first few months.
catch up with lots of friends and family while we're back. Wish us
