So we headed to the hospital, and it was actually good for the kids to see where we would be next Friday. They didn't have me down for my appointment (WTF?!) but found my file and slotted me in anyway. Meant a longer wait though, and kids were tired and antsy (although doctor still complimented them on their behaviour, which was nice). While we were waiting, we saw a teeny tiny baby and knocked out mum come out of theatre, which I pointed out to the kids (but assured them I wouldn't be asleep on the table!). Came home to chip off acrylic nails that I only got two weeks ago - forgot about not being able to have falsies during surgery. Nails now tatty, but not as hideous as I thought they might be!
Today I managed a bit of a sleep in - kids are getting very good at getting up and quietly watching telly in the morning, which has been lovely. Then we got ready and headed up to Belmont to collect hire baby capsule. Red Cross people were very nice, and it was all very smooth, even though we were nearly an hour early!
This afternoon I've forced the kids into the pool to wear off some energy, done a bit more sorting and moving about in the shed, put some excess junk in there (neatly, unlike some people who do it *glares in absent husband's direction*), and edited another story or two for Worlds Next Door. We had a (grown-up) friend visit cancel for a tentative visit today, but hopefully she'll come tomorrow or Friday. I need to get my edits finished so I can move on to some reviews with deadlines. Important! And WASLA newsletter. And girliejones has promised me some Shiny to layout over the next couple of days. Eep. Best get going!
