spring sprung

With the start of long sunny evenings, lawns to mow, and patios to visit, spring feels like it is finally here. I’m missing my bike rides this year (Cory’s loving them as usual) but I’m still very pleased to be able to get outdoors in relative comfort.

Pregnancy-wise: I went to my first pregnancy yoga class today. While normally I’m not a yoga person, I like to run around and be active rather than slow down and center myself, right now it’s great. My belly is starting to get a wee bit uncomfortable and taking the time to relax and stretch out feels good. Plus being surrounded by other bellies is relaxing – I felt way more normal than I feel at work these days.

We also bought our first major baby purchase, a cot and mattress from John Lewis. This was actually a Christmas gift from my grandfather to our wee one and it was nice to finally be able to purchase it. Now that we’re firmly in the third trimester it’s time to start shopping we guess, I may not feel like traipsing around the shops come June.

    I’m glad to hear spring has made it that far north. It’s still a little bit sporadic way down south in Yorkshire. I can understand about the relaxation of being surrounded by other bellies. A lot of men in our local pub seem to feel the same way.
