Adiós 2013 and a great big welcome to 2014!
On day two of the year we took a trip to the hospital I’ll be delivering Crumb to meet the team and so on. We’d also booked in for an Antenatal class for that afternoon. We’ve been reading up so much about the birth that we suddenly realised we’ve got no idea what to do when the baby actually arrives! Well, thankfully we both now know how to change nappies, wind a baby, swaddle and put a baby to sleep… fingers crossed we’ll remember it all! I’ve no doubt Tom’s going to be practicing swaddling on our teddies over the next few months!
… And then it was time for a pamper! Seeing as I was ill over Christmas I didn’t feel like I’d made the most of the festive time off – but luckily Tom had planned a relaxing spa break for us. So off to Champneys Tring we went for a couple of days R&R. I swam lots, ate good food, had a meditation class (something I’m hoping to do more of), received a Decleor Vitamin Glow Facial and perhaps the best part of the trip was the Beautiful Bump treatment I received just before we left, which comprised of a foot soak, back massage (us pregnant folk aren’t allowed normal ones, so this was a real treat), a soothing mask of goodness for my bump followed by a gorgeous leg, foot, scalp and hand massage. I felt really taken care of by the wonderful Arlyn, who seemed incredibly enthusiastic about giving mums-to-be a much needed touch of TLC. The treatment was heavenly and the perfect end to the first week of the year!
Love (a very relaxed and chilled) Gi. Xx
