Bringing home the bacon

One of the things the boy has been doing this week, is to visit the supermarket every couple of days to stock up on heat'n'eat meals, chocolate (for the anticipated baby blues), cakes (also mostly just for me) and anything else he thinks I need.

He even bought me several packs of maternity pads, which meant having to ask various ignorant male staff where the hell they were (they didn't even know what they were).

Funnily enough, this abundance of snackables hasn't lead to all-day food binges. Ordinarily, if I were stuck at home all week I'd be at the biscuits and toast and cakes like a starved sugar demon.

Maybe it's the preggy-headedness.

Other things
Thank goodness that the rock-hard booby situation seems to have resoved itself. Today they're back to their normal texture.
My finger joints, which have been creaky with water retention for the last few days, are almost back to normal.
So far today I've been able to sit without pain. Could it be that they have finally reached a state of repair which transcends the need for Panadol? Go, stitches!

Is the toast to offset the sweetness like a page break?

Re: the sore back...My masseuse sends her regards and you can consider this a gentle reminder that you've got a voucher to use up when you feel up to it...8-)
How long before the stitches come out?

eb: no, it's more like a vehicle - like a Julia Roberts movie.

desiree: I'm trying to encourage the boy to use the voucher actually, because he's always been very forthcoming in giving me massages but has no one to give him one. The stitches are supposed to dissolve on their own, in about 2 weeks.

I must admit I have no clue what maternity pads are. Good to hear the aches and pains are subsiding for you.

Violet said...

glomgold: I could tell you what maternity pads are, but I fear that it might be Too Much Information.

Uh oh. I think I've learned enough!
