Where have you been????

I cannot believe that it is well over a month since I posted. I knew it was a while, but not that long! I also can't believe that it's a comeback with a meme, but I really like this one of Dix's, which she stole from Kara.

1. Go to Pop Culture Madness. Click on "pop music" on the left sidebar. Scroll down a bit and find the hits for the year you turned 18 years old.
2. Copy and paste the top 75 songs of that year.
3. Bold the ones you liked; strike the ones you disliked; and italicize the ones you knew but didn’t exactly like or dislike. The ones you don’t know will stay plain text.

However, these are US charts, so it's not necessarily a good representation for me.

1. Love Shack - B-52's
2. Funky Cold Medina - Tone Loc (strike)
3. Bust A Move - Young MC

So, apart from the meme, I am ok. 29 weeks now, and really rather big. I had the most appalling flu for a fortnight, and foolishly only took two days off work, but I'm afraid that the working guilt kicked in, and I couldn't stay off any longer. Only 3 1/2 weeks of work left - eeeek! My first two weeks are holiday, and my official maternity leave doesn't start until 17th April. Bring it on, I am knackered! It's hard crawling around on the floor with 5 and 6 year olds when you have a large watermelon attached to your front...

Having had a huge "girl" vibe for the first 5 months, I am now feeling "boy" loads. Either will do nicely quite frankly. With A, I had the whole "boy" thing going on, although I didn't have any surety, I had no doubt in my mind that he was a boy. It really is going to be a huge surprise!

I LOVE that pop culture thing.

"It's hard crawling around on the floor with 5 and 6 year olds when you have a large watermelon attached to your front..."

You have every ounce of sympathy from me that I can muster.

I could barely breath let alone chase other children around.

Isnt that interesting about the 'boy' feeling.
