Sorry still no pics, I’ll try and post some later, I am still having trouble with our photo editing programme at the moment.
I am putting down the frustrating time I had with the midwife yesterday to the fact that she was a stand in for our regular one and hope when I get to see my normal one in a fortnight I will be a lot happier, basically if I was more Paranoid than I am I would say she was looking for something to be wrong because of my size and because she couldn’t find anything she started pulling at straws with all sorts of randomness. I have calmed down after a reassuring e-mail from a fellow pregnant blogger. I have recieved a letter from the hospital today though telling me to go back on my iron tablets, I thought we had balanced it out with my diet but apparently its not enough so I am going to look for some alternatives to the ones I have at present as they make me feel bad.
I spoke to dad earlier and he is sounding very positive at the moment, I am going over to stay for a couple of days next week as Andy is away so should get some good knitting time in. The only problem he has at the moment is his neighbour, now we have alwys got on reasonably well with her, always says hello and such like but apparently she has put in a formal complaint about the ramp te council has built along our front path to allow dad some independence, now although its not a designer ramp I have seen far worse and has a nice decorative brick edging and its not as though she tends to her front garden, all she does is once a year is empty a box of weed killer on it and occassionally cuts the hedge, there are no plants or anything in it but apparently it offends her, I know it has very little to do with it bit she potrays herself as a God fearing woman and we haven’t once complained about the early morning christian meetings that she has in the house that are very loud but it only lasts a couple of hours but she cannot see that this at least gives dad a small piece of independence and allows him to get out of the house by himself even if it is only down to the shop for a newspaper. She hasn’t offered once to help with the shopping or anything like this although she has a car and my brother and dad don’t and I don’t really expect her to but just a little understanding would be nice. Ok sorry rant over it is just very frustrating that sometimes we take some steps forward that now look as though it could be taken away.
Ok I am off to go and put my feet up as ordered and do a little knitting.
