Today I gave birth in a field and the hunter gatherers of the family killed the meat for our dinner

In case you didn’t gather, that was all one big stretch-of-the-truth. It’ll be interesting to check my Sitemeter statistics and see what search terms have brought people through to my blog with now though thanks to that title. Oh the mind games, how they please me. I have little energy left to do anything else. Can’t I have a little fun?

In actual fact, I went to see the consultant at the hospital to arrange my date for the elective caesarean section and Mike and the boys went foraging for blackberries. Not quite a lie, hence the claim that it’s actually just a “stretch-of-the-truth”.

We do have our date.

Thursday 23rd September.

So even though I knew it was coming, now I’m going to probably get myself overpanicked and worked up with nerves because I know it’s coming. Arranging to have myself sliced open with a couple of weeks notice is very different to having a few minutes warning as with an emergency caesarean. It’s very nice to not have the panic of course. But it still gives me plenty of time to work myself up. Perhaps I just need to accept that there is no pleasing me and I will worry unnecessarily about anything.

I accept that.

But I’ll also accept any and all thoughts and prayers too.

In the meantime, I can busy myself making half a jar of jam with the very modest bounty that the boys brought home.

  1. You never get use to having that surgery. Ever. But, know that you will be lifted up in prayers and all will go quite smoothly. Blessings!
