Maternity Leave….

So today was a huge milestone in this pregnancy, I finished work for Maternity Leave. People have been asking me all day if I’m excited or glad to be leaving and honestly… no I don’t think I am. 

Don’t get me wrong.  I can’t wait to be a mum and have a little human to care for and love, but I’m also freaking out about the impending eviction! 

Also… what if I’m crap at this whole mum business. You can’t just turn round half way through and think whoops..  I screwed up.  Let’s send this baby back.  

Anyway.  Back to my last day, my whole team normally all works in an office together on the ground floor of our building, but we had a power cut on our floor yesterday so we’ve been dotted around and split up. It was a bit rubbish not having around but they still managed to decorate my borrowed desk for when I got into the office.  

I was then suprised with a buffet at the desk which was really nice.  Then this afternoon they took me back to our dark little office and threw me a baby shower, it was so lovely.  Pin the dummy on the baby… and a very popular (yet really really grim) game of guess the baby food flavour.  At the very least it’s persuaded me that baby led weaning is the way forward for my little pudding. 

On our team there is a bit of a joke about how our team song is the Pina Colada song. I’ve been saying all week how I’m probably going to miss it for 9 months.  So as part of the gifts our little girl was bought a Pina Colada dress. I absolutely adore it! 

So that’s the end of that.  I’m going to miss everyone so much but it just means the next exciting chapter is closer than ever.  Scary, yet super exciting.
