First week of maternity leave.
I knew I had a-lot to give up leaving my salon after 5 years of it being my baby and the success it has been, no-one will ever understand the amount of hard work that goes into it, and it looks seemless to everyone else involved. However the time has come and I actually feel ready now, and trust my colleagues to look after it while I'm away.. I will be back!!
|From this ....|
I have made plans for a temporary nursery (as we live in a townhouse on 5 floors) downstairs, where I will be spending most of the day and one on the top floor when the baby is 6months +
This is the downstairs where I can share my office/desk with baby.. The view from my desk for the next few weeks.
I have collected these old baskets and Tom has made the changing table from our old pedicure booths in the salon. My friends all say, poor baby will have splinters in it's bum, but when my brother and I were growing up, my dad made everything, mainly from metal, and the odd wood worm chunk of wood that he crafted into bunk beds for us, but I turned out alright!
So far i am 38 weeks and my bump is all up front, i have put on 9LBS so I can mainly fit into my clothes (if not Tom's shirt's) this is my latest bump photo..
