not feelin' groovy

Woke up with period pains and a backache that came and went, and my goddamn perianal haematoma is hurting again. I've been desperately trying not to throw up all morning. Grocery shopping when you feel like hurling is so not fun. I haven't been able to sleep for more than 2 hours at a time over the past few days. Bleah bleah bleah bleah bleah.

On the plus side, I went into town and bought the last of the baby essentials (particularly the new moses basket mattress) and some foody supplies for the week and labour. The pool has been tested and is the best thing EVER, and much to my huge relief, is all ready to go for the real thing. I've got a freezer full of food, my house is clean(ish), the laundry is almost done, and the new bedroom/en suite is making me very happy indeed. Most importantly, my in-laws have been an absolute godsend and a huge help. Thanks to them, my son has been spoiled rotten all weekend and our garden isn't making me cringe anymore.

So who knows. Maybe I'll have an exciting update later, or maybe I'll just feel like shite for a while. In the meantime, here are some pictures for you to enjoy.

Kids can sleep anywhere!

Still waiting for the cabana boy to bring me a virgin daiquiri.
