I've had a great two week Easter holiday. For Easter Sunday today, we went to my Mum's for a roast dinner with my family and it was nice to be able to spend some time with everyone. I can't believe how quickly my nephew is growing up, he's almost 18 months now and starting to get seriously cheeky! We also spent some time with Tom's parents yesterday, they've been abroad for a wedding for the past few weeks, so it was good to see them.
This past week has gone very quickly. Tom has been decorating and doing DIY jobs around the house, whilst I've been sitting with my feet up! Everyone kept telling me to rest and relax and make the most of the time before the baby comes, so I decided just to go with it. I've been sleeping in and reading and lounging and watching TV and it's been lovely. We have another Bank Holiday tomorrow and then I'm back to work on Tuesday. To be honest I'm not looking forward to it, as I'm not sure how my energy levels are going to cope with managing a class full of lively eight year olds every day plus all the marking/paperwork, but I only have five weeks to go and then it's half term and my maternity leave starts. I can't wait!
My bump has had a massive growth spurt over the past couple of weeks. I'm now almost 33 weeks and hoping that I don't get too much bigger....
Reading-wise, it's been another great week. I finished a chunky Robert Jordan book and I'm almost all of the way through The Portrait of a Lady (150 pages to go). I love to read a chunky classic in my time off work and I've enjoyed this one, although it wasn't what I expected at all. I have lots of thoughts about it, so I'm already looking forward to writing my review.
This week, I've been reading:
The Astronaut Wives Club by Lily Koppel 3 out of 5
The Great Hunt by Robert Jordan 3.5 out of 5
