A daunting prospect
But, after a short tea break, Rod got stuck in
Fifteen minutes later, the cot was standing
17 minutes later it was also a changing station
It involved glue and some screwing, but the glider chair didn't take too long either
Then, from the last box, fell these two bags...
...so I left him with these little babies lined up and went out for lunch
As if by magic, this was waiting for me when I got back
(In case you’re wondering, the furniture all came from John Lewis – wardrobe, Rachel cot, cot top changer and glider chair. We chose the delivery day and slot (7am-2pm) and they delivered everything at 11am on the dot! Would definitely recommend them for choice, value for money and customer service.)
(And no – this is not a sponsored post. I wish.)
I just read a lovely blog post here written by a woman who has moved from London to New York and who’s celebrating her first Thanksgiving. She said: “Taking time to really appreciate what you have is something I certainly feel I benefit from.” I totally agree. So here are some things I’m thankful for:
- A healthy pregnancy
- My husband (in general)
- My husband’s boss, who’s recognised Rod’s 15 months of hard slog commuting to Edinburgh and working 11 hours a day, 6 days a week, by promoting him and letting him be based in Glasgow.
- My great circle of family and friends who always support me
I don’t take any of that for granted, but today, especially, I appreciate them all.
What are you thankful for?
