We were pretty keen to have a really quiet and special last Christmas just as the three of us. We deliberately did't 'book' lots of things in and kept lots of days free to spend at home. Vivienne and I spent lots of days in bed eating chocolate and watching Netflix (turns out she loves Outnumbered so we powered through the episodes in our PJs pretty quickly), and did lots of walking, baking and popping out for lunch here and there too.
Baby bump is pretty big now, and I'm feeling tired but not exhausted, and still feel I can function pretty normally. The only downside is not having much room to eat the amazing Christmas food on offer. On Christmas Day I couldn't manage a big plateful, as much as I wanted to, but I'm sure I'll make up for it in January when Baby is here. I'm also not missing drinking as much as I thought I would over Christmas.
What I did feel pang of longing for, though, was a proper Christmas night out. Usually there's a night where people head out in the freezing cold and go out between Christmas and New Year and go dancing but I guess it'll all just have to wait. I did manage to see a band at the Empire a few days before Christmas day - standing in a nightclub where David and I met at 8 months pregnant wasn't how I expected the year to end!
