Term + five days. Waiting...
Had a lovely low-key Xmas/NY on standby and enjoying the time off work (sleeping like an absolute log, while I still can), but aware that every day before arrival is a day less after that I get full-time with MiniWza.
Have until 30th Jan off work, though (been off since Xmas Eve and took AL until two weeks after the due date then lined up two weeks of paternity assistance leave after that) so no complaints there - happy not to be at work, on tenterhooks. Induction booked for next Sunday, so the 'eviction notice' has been served!
On the flip side, we're getting through a decent amount of backlogged DVDs and Netflix. And enjoying some chilled mooching and lunching out and about locally.
My parents were talking about coming up for a visit a week or so after the birth but I successfully pointed out that that wasn't a great idea cos of the expected combo of tiredness, chaos and v regular but v unscheduled sleeping & baps-out feeding at that point in time. They agreed to leave it at least a couple of weeks longer. Would've been fine if they were popping round for ten minutes, meal in hand, but they need a certain amount of supervision/guidance seeing as they're not familiar with Glasgow (having only visited twice since we moved here, and not for eight(!) years) so they can hang fire until we're ready.
What're the other expected MiniDiSer arrival dates?
