Of late I haven’t had much time to blog. Thats because I have been busy trying to literally get my life. Over the last few weeks, I have worked a crazy amount of hours to finish up work and hand it over to my backfill in a respectable state. Which by the way is not recommended or advisable for someone who is heavily pregnant. But because of my hard work no one and I mean no one is going to be able to say she didn’t ‘take care of business.
Since we last spoke I also celebrated a birthday and became another year older. First of November is my birthday – we don’t need to go into details about the year, but that makes me a Scorpio. What do you know about Scorpio woman?
“The Scorpio woman has great charm, allure, and inner strength, and is able to overcome almost any obstacle in life. She comes across as self-confident and self-possessed and people are drawn to her for that reason. There is a mysterious quality about the Scorpio woman, because she is intensely private and discrete”.
People who know me personally tend to agree that the above description. Interesting…
On my birthday naturally I spent time on the phone with my mhama talking about my birthday and the impending birth of out first child. Personally I think now that I am becoming a mother I have a new found appreciation and affection for my mother – we have more in common.
Its during our conversation she sent me some old school photos. The picture you see labelled as “then” is yours truly at about 3months. If i didn’t know that was me I be like nah, that doesn’t even look me!
Side note: I did ask my mhama why she was so serious in the photo. Her response? One she didn’t want her photo to be taken at the time. Secondly it was serious business looking after me – as new parents they we were faking it until we made it.
I like this picture because everything was still new to me and was exploring the big bad world – not yet tainted or jaded.
Note to self: Next time you get pregnant try to make it before or after your birthday.
I am in the final stages of the third trimester so opportunities to really celebrate my birthday were reduced to the bare minimum – basically all I could do was yawn, rest and eat. Repeat.
The “now” photo was taken during my birthday linner (lunch and dinner) outing with my hubby. I was deep in thought – reflecting on the year that was and the year that is to come. Its the first time in a little while that I was able to sit back and really think about what was happening.
You guys, in 2015 I have moved interstate, got engaged and now we are expecting our first child. Most people would have a nervous breakdown with all that activity in one year. Yes its overwhelming, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
As they say God doesn’t put anything on your plate that you cannot handle.
Rest assured that now that I am officially a lady of leisure, you are going to get an influx of content.
