Can you believe the last time I uploaded a Week In Numbers post it was November?! So much has changed since then, a new job, being pregnant and a global pandemic. Considering my whole life has changed since late 2019 I thought I would upload the 5th edition to this series and give you an update – these posts have always been one of my favourites to read and write so I hope you enjoy!
//2…\\ Items bought for the nursery. Me and Harry are starting to get the nursery as prepared as possible – the amount of items you need for a newborn is crazy and let’s not talk about how expensive it is! Can we just talk about how amazing Facebook Marketplace is? The other day I was scrolling down my news feed and spotted an amazing Mothercare cot bed and changing table for only £160! We were originally going to buy the furniture from Ikea but I am so glad I found these as the quality is so much better and looks practically brand new.
//1…\\ Meal with Phoebe. For the first time since March, me and Phoebe spent the evening in Bath having food and mocktails and it felt so so amazing to be reunited and have a girly catch up. In the UK at the moment we have a government scheme called Eat Out To Help Out, where all food and soft drinks are half price and you bet I am taking full advantage of that. We met in Zizzi’s and if I am being honest the food was a little bit shit, mine was cold and Phoebes was scalding hot and was brought to our table only 5 minutes after ordering (I am sure if we listened properly you could hear the microwave ping haha). BUT it didn’t matter too much as it was just nice to be out with each other and do something a little more normal for the first time in months.
//40…\\ Minutes spent in therapy. I feel weirdly vulnerable admitting this as I have always been very transparent on my blog, but after 5-6 years I am back getting CBT therapy. As I mentioned in my previous post I am pregnant, which means I am unable to continue taking my anti-depressants and it has been so hard to manage my depression and anxiety. This week was my third appointment and as tough as it is, I am so pleased to say it is starting to help me.
//1…\\ Nail appointment at the salon. For Christmas, my lovely mum treated me to a voucher at our local salon which I used this week to get a Shellac manicure. At first I was a little worried about what COVID 19 procedures would be put into place to ensure we were all safe but I was pleasantly surprised at how strict their procedures were and I felt so safe. I was asked to wait outside and we both sanitised our hands alongside wearing masks and as she was doing my nails she reassured me all of her clients had their own new nail file. I enjoyed getting pampered so much for the first time since January and although it was much different than normal, having nice nails made my week.
//25…\\ Percent of my pregnancy book read on my kindle. Trying to google the right things and research accurate information about pregnancy and newborns is so difficult because there is so much to learn and it can be overwhelming figuring out what you need to learn. Considering I am a bit of a book worm at the moment, I bought myself the ‘How to Grow a Baby and Push It Out: Your no-nonsense guide to pregnancy and birth‘ by Clemmie Hooper and it is so amazing. It is written by a midwife and mother of 4 and as you are reading it, it feels like you are talking to a friend as its funny as well as so informative. I really recommend this book, and if any of my other fellow mum bloggers have any recommendations please let me know in the comments below!
I hope you all enjoyed this chatty post, all of my other Week In Numbers will be linked below if you wanted to check them out.
Until next time,
