And now, the end is near...

(posted by Elizma)

It feels like I say that every weekend. But it now almost truly is the last weekend we'll be working to get everything in the house ready for the arrival of our precious baby.

Leon spent the whole day today cleaning all the carpets - his energy sometimes surprises me. Once he gets going, he just doesn't stop! I am really proud of him. I was not of much help today - as the machinery was too heavy for me to operate.

We also hung the curtains that Leon's mother made for the nursery. They look great. Thanks MaRia!

Tomorrow we'll be putting up bits and pieces around the house such as toilet roll holders and towel hooks in our new loft shower room. And that's it! What's not done by tomorrow evening can wait until after the babies arrival and when we feel like it again.

Next weekend is a bank holiday (Monday is a public holiday and also the expected arrival date) and Leon has taken the Friday off as well. If all goes according to plan, baby will stay nice and cosy until the 27th and we'll have one last weekend to relax and enjoy each other's company - and some well deserved final lie-ins.

Tania (Leon's sister) has also very kindly offered us a room in her hotel and free use of the spa facilities. We'll be staying there on Thursday night and spend Friday hanging around the spa. We're spoilt rotten - thanks Tania!
