We have had a very “Christmassy” weekend with a trip to the Singing Kettle’s Big Christmas Party yesterday, and a trip to see Santa at Heads of Ayr today.
The Singing Kettle show was packed with lots of old favourites and Scott loved it. He had a bit of a huff in the second half when he didn’t get picked to go on stage as a volunteer, but picked up when Santa came on stage and they sang Jingle Bells. The house was then brought down at the end with a rendition of “Ye Canny Shove Yer Granny Off A Bus.” Although that will be our last Singing Kettle, Scott has already got his eye on the new incarnation “Funbox” which is going with a pirate theme for the first show.
I went to the gym this morning as an alternative to braving the elements. When you are going as slow as I am currently there is no fun in prolonging the time spent outdoors. I am trying to go by an article I read this week about running in pregnancy – “You’re not training for you, you’re training for two.” I think this sounds kind of nice. Unfortunately I am feeling like Junior is lying right on my bladder so running was a bit uncomfortable at times today. I was particularly displeased that the facilities at the gym were not open! I did enjoy running along to “Noddy holder’s It’s Christmaaaas mix”, however! One of the perks of watching TV as you run.
Today we went to Heads of Ayr Farm Park where they have a lovely Santa’s Grotto. Scott was a bit bashful when he got to meet the Big Man:
Alas, I had to forgo the slides this year, so Billy stepped up and he managed to do his shocked face to perfection!
I did take my chances in “Foul Play”, though:
A fun day. Really hoping that the weather picks up or we will be back to our options of soft-play or swimming again tomorrow. (We went swimming on Saturday morning.)
Pregnancy update – I am starting to feel the pressure of where Junior happens to be positioned and it is often uncomfortable. Bending over is a bit uncomfortable too. I can no longer lie on my front in bed which isn’t good as that is my favoured sleeping position. I have only felt sick a couple of times this week and I haven’t actually been sick so that is definite progress. We had our 20 week scan this week and thankfully everything is looking fine.
20 weeks 5 days bump:
Merry Christmas everyone!
