    It dragged for me pre birth- I left at 32 weeks first time and she was a week late- but I look back at that time so fondly. I yearn to have that time to myself to do nothing again.
    I'll definitely keep this in mind, thanks! I really must learn to relax. I've never been very good at it. Today was my first day and I got up earlyish, sorted out a new handbag, did some washing, cleaned the house and went to the shops before 12 when my friends came over. I then hung out washing, called the electricity company about something and cooked dinner. Must... learn... to stop! :P

    I think it's zero rated on iinet? Might be worth looking into. We have Netflix, is awesome, and we don't go over our download limit.

    Yeah I've heard that about iinet. We're on the NBN in SA and very few providers were able to offer a service for various (stupid!) reasons, so I'll have to look into it. Thanks!

I have to admit, the novelty of doing housework in the day was there this morning, but I'm sure that will fade. :P

    Soon you'll wonder how you managed to fit WORK in a day lol
    So many other things to do :-)

    For my first I spent some time knitting a hat and a jumper. Another idea in case you're a little crafty.
    And when nesting kicks in you'll be cleaning the floor with a toothbrush. That will keep you busy ;-) hehe
