Happy 8-weeks! That’s a week with an 8-year old puppy (such joy!) and 8-weeks to go until my due date... exciting! It’s felt like ages away for a long time, and in some ways still does (I’m secretly hoping things will be totally done and dusted with the old ‘c-word’ by July 21st... but yunno, optimism isn’t always realistic! But at least I have almost everything I need (99% hand-me-downs and second hand), and I have a trip up to my family planned (to collect stuff and have a mostly virtual baby shower). To the people (fortunately very few) who said I was mad to get a puppy close to having a baby, please keep that schtick to yourself! It’s my forth puppy and I’m pretty bloody adept at knowing what works and how to do it to suit me (and Bug). And with a year off work and office life uncertain there’s no better time to do it (certainly much better than post-baby!) Tge patronising views have bothered me, because I’m very often conscious of singleist and ableist attitudes towards my decisions (basically some people seem to think I’m useless, but f**k em). Anyway I’m rambling, maybe hormonally! But really, it was a bloody cracking decision so far, she’s been an absolute dream... so much do that Bug’s nearly fully warmed too, so finally got her playmate.
But yes, 8-weeks (or less) left to go... the countdown is now on!
