Still not...

feeling 100%. Spent most of the time after the weekend with a runny nose, sore throat and temperature and ended up staying downstairs until about 5 in the morning as I just couldn't sleep even though I was totally knackered. Now sleeping but still have a hacking cough and sore throat and only just starting to get back in to actually doing things. Saying that I went in to town with my Mum on Wednesday , mainly to look for maternity trousers as most of my stuff doesn't fit any more. I don't have much money to spend at the moment so looking in Mothercare and Next etc was out but I did find a really lovely pair of black trousers in Peacocks and was also surprised to see that New Look has actually started their own maternity range too. I still find it funny that this is the first time I've had anything new in a couple of years and it's maternity stuff - would have preferred a nice pair of size 10 skintight jeans but I can dream can't I?!?!? We had a look in the new shopping centre that's only been open a couple of weeks but as far as I can see it's not really anything special and the only new shop I have any interest in is Faith - I could spend an absolute fortune in there on boots if I had the money. Half-term starts tonight so I have the pleasure of the boy's company next week. They've already decided that they want to watch the Star Wars films as Matthew had the Lego Star wars game for the X-box 360 for his birthday and the 2 of them have loved playing it. The only problem I have is trying to explain that the films we have are episodes 4,5, and 6 but not 1, 2 and 3. Would have been so much easier if they'd been made in the right order! Hoping that I may get some scrapping done soon. I have all my stuff for November's UKS DT to do as II haven't started that yet along with my entry for a DT comp and a pile of ATCs for a CHristmas ATC swap I'm hosting. I keep having loads of ideas for the ATCs so at this rate I could end up making them all different once I get in to doing them. In the meantime, today is for trying to catch up on all the laundry that I haven't done this week. It had got to the stage where the pile of stuff on top of the basket was nearly as tall as the basket itself so I'm trying to clear the backlog. Looks like most of it will end up on clothes horses around the house though as it's quite grey and miserable here today with mist and that really fine "wet" rain LOL!

Erk! Half term while feeling unwell AND still in the knackered stage of pregnancy. Good luck - hope you find the energy xxx. On the plus side of course, there's no school run (I know I'm looking forward to a week off LOL!).

Glad to read you're feeling a bit better! Hope you feel less tired soon and enjoy half term :) LOL @ the new clothes in a while being maternity stuff. I hate clothes shopping so it was the same thing for me a few weeks ago and now of course I'm seeing all these cute "normal" clothes that I really want.
