Back in the saddle...

Originally my maternity leave was due to finish in 2 weeks time.  I'm so glad that I postponed my return to work until September: I'm really not ready to leave my baby yet.  Baby M is currently working hard on crawling (so far she can do slow commando style) and we started on Baby Led Weaning a few days ago.  She is changing so quickly I would hate to miss out.  And then there is the breastfeeding which I'm not even slightly ready to give up.  I know the remainder of my leave will fly by so I need to make the most of it, both to enjoy my baby and get ready for my new role as working mum.

Since Baby M was born I have been continually behind on everything.  Before I go back to work I need to be one of those supermums.  The type that keep the house tidy, do all the washing, the cooking and manage to look after themselves and the baby.  I'm not even sure I can become this person, but I guess I will find out.

Stage 1:
This week I started running again.  I have encouraged some of the girls in my NCT group to do it for support as well.  I'm following a very gentle couch to 5k plan (from Running Made Easy).  I followed the same plan 2 years ago.  It's perfect for getting the post pregnancy bodies back on track.

Keep the house vaguely respectable and cook dinner at least twice a week.

Make slightly more regular updates to this blog.  Even once a month would be an improvement.
