It is now 6 weeks until our first little baby is due and during the week I have moved cities, bought a car, changed midwives, and put an offer in on a house only to discover some significant issues with it at the last minute.
We now need to find a flat urgently and are likely to be moving within a few weeks of her due date. Perhaps it is just the nesting phase, but I am finding it rather difficult to cope with the changes. Not knowing where we might be living in a few weeks time leaves me with a feeling of being unable to prepare myself to a certain degree.
I feel overwhelmed and a little blue at the moment, however have given myself today (and today only) to wallow before getting on with it and making it happen. Perhaps today I will make a cake. A little sense of achievement amongst the chaos.
On a brighter note, we found some empty heron eggs in the flower garden. After further investigation we discovered a wonderful nest in the Puriri tree above with the little chicks in it. How comforting to find life going on.
I am looking forward to watching their progress over the next few weeks.
