Weekly Countdown: 7th May

This week’s countdown list looks like this:

  • 6 days until we go on our first family holiday, first plane for Elvis and first real break from everything in over a year
  • 14 days until the big 1!
  • 7 weeks today until I am back at work
  • About 8.5 weeks until my birthday BBQ, all children friendly and hopefully loads of fun
  • About 10 weeks until my first convention in over 18 months – LFCC
  • About 11 weeks until the first real trip to Devon that Elvis will have and the second family wedding for him

That gets us to the end of July almost and the school holidays, which should make work and nursery nice and easy. Then in September we have new term, new work hours and new baby cousins due!
