So our trip to the Island was cancelled. Mike also got a violent stomach bug which forced him to bed for a couple of days last weekend, and we kind of had an excuse.
What do we do then? I don't mind really, being with my family and pampered and fed...but for Mike is a bit different, these are our holidays after all...So we decided to go shopping for the Attic conversion plan. You may get the impression that we can't find anything in Ireland...that's not really true provided that you are willing to spend A LOT of money for an average quality product. We think that we can actually save a good bit by ordering things in Italy and get them shipped over.
So far we have selected a bed frame (I like simple things but of a proper size!!) with memory foam matrasses and the sanitaryware for the bathroom. We will have to have the architect checking dimensions and highths just in case but we love what we saw! We will go looking for sliding doors next week, and a few other bits and pieces.
We are also going to buy a selection of delicacies from my region to bring back to the girl who's looking after Patches, we know she loves Italian cusine and she's doing a great job with him! He's eating loads and is very well, so we couldn't be happier.
And today I'm 6 weeks! I tested again with a Clearblue this morning (not the digital just in case it said the wrong number of weeks!), it's my clinic policy to have you testing until the viability scan, and I'm happy to say it was as strong as it can be. Not much else to report on this front, I feel tired and a bit nauseous and I'm delighted with anything that means Elvis is still with me. I haven't booked the scan yet, I think I'll do it on the 10th of June (7w4d) as I'm internal examiner for a PhD viva on the 9th and I don't want to have to deal with bad news the day before if, God forbid, that is the case.
I will update my old posts with pics once I'm back, I can't do it from here at all but thanks so much for all the messages and love you sent me! I don't know what I would do without you all.
