I leave on Tuesday for Poland and have mixed feelings about it. When I agreed to go in January, I had no idea how I would be feeling now. I am actually doing really well with the pregnancy and my energy is coming back, BUT I do get quite tired at the end of the day and nearly 2 weeks in Poland running the show is going to be hard work. I need to slow down and ask for help, but this does not come easy to Helen "stubborn" Palmer. On the other hand, this will be the last work trip for a while, so I should savour it :-) And when I am in Poland, I do really enjoy it, so watch the blogs for updates. PLUS, mr.ncot is coming out to Wroclaw next weekend, which is excellent. I have been there so many times and he hasn't!
Also this week at work, I had several really good lunches and amazing conversations with colleagues about pregnancy, babies and working part time. I am learning a lot and finding that opening up to people brings amazing honesty and results from them!
Plus, at the end of last week, I had a rush of pleasant surprises in the post :-)
* my sister sent me some stripy pencils
* the lovely yokospungeon sent me some gorgeous smelling baby soap, lip balm and stripy notelets
* my friend Jane from California sent me a HUGE box of maternity clothes, plus 3 books, one of which I devoured yesterday
In short, I feel very loved. I miss blogging regularly, so will try the next couple of weeks to get back into a daily routine, even if it is just a few short sentences.
