I Will.. Become a Mother
As you all know, we're going to become first time parents this year, so my biggest wish for this year is for the final half of the pregnancy to go smoothly and to receive a healthy baby at the end of it. As the weeks go by I'm getting more and more excited about finally meeting him or her and I've started trying to prepare myself by reading as much as possible about what to expect during labour and in those first few months. I know it doesn't matter how much I prepare, I'm still not going to know how to do everything until the time comes, but I find that the more information I have, the calmer and more confident I am about the arrival.
I Will.. Get my Degree
I will sit my exams as late as three or four weeks before my due date, so getting behind one of those tiny little desks that you get in the exam room is going to be interesting! I was determined that I was going to finish university this year before bambino comes and as I've said, I've got a lot of support which has really helped. I have no doubt that I can finish this and get a good grade.
I'm not the best cook in the world, so I've done the next best thing: invested in an army of machines to do the hard work for me! It's brilliant because I can still make healthy meals, smoothies and my own bread and not slave away in the kitchen for hours, which to be fair, nobody has the time to do. I've already started doing this in the last week by digging out all of our recipe books then going to the market to get the fruit, veg and other ingredients we need. I used to have fruit for breakfast, something with salad for lunch and a dish with veg for dinner before I was pregnant and now I'm feeling a bit better and not as fussy with food anymore, I'm starting to get back in that routine again.
I Will.. Set a Date
Obviously wedding planning has taken a back seat in the last few months and we're probably not going to get married when we originally said we would, but that's ok. We have all the time in the world to do it. We probably won't seriously start thinking about this again until everything with baby has settled down, but we do want to decide the venues and set a date at the very least.
