Have you ever had one of those days where despite your plans they end differently to what you expected?

I’m pretty certain you have.

Your day is set out with every thing in order and bam something comes along that upsets the plan.

Our day yesterday went something like this :

10:30 Breastfeeding Support Group

13:30 lunch at Sainsburys

14:30 meet up with the daughter’s in-laws

15:30 3D scan of baby, hoping to see the little face and get some cute pics of the future grandchild… No facial view but we got a fab pic of baby’s ear 😂 😂 😂

16:30 ish go for afternoon tea to celebrate the impending arrival of said grandchild.

17:30 a viewing of the house they’re buying.

Home to pack for impending trips and supper while relaxing and watching TV…..

End of scheduled plans… But what do they say about the plans of mice and men?

…… A surprise awaits!!! The expectant parents reveal the baby’s chosen name over tea… And its an amazing name…. Just perfect. Lots of delighted chatter and exclamations and talk of baby. 💕 💕 💕

After much excitement and baby talk every one scatters to do their own thing and we, daughter and me, head down to the baby section and set about increasing M&S’s profit margins…. 😂 😂 😂 😂

After which we drive over to view the house 🏡… Its adorable.

Then (a planned)… home to pack, them for a 4 day trip to Wales and me for a 10 day work assignment.

Except, underlying the whole day is the uncomfortable fact that the pregnant 🤰 Mummy is in pain. Mild at first and assumed to be a UTI. I buy bicarbonate of soda which is a good neutraliser to possibly help in the meantime till she gets to the maternity unit for tests. Doesn’t work…and the pain increases. Getting worried now. At least we know from the scan that baby is fit and bouncing.

Finally, after dropping off the in-laws at home and me at the store to buy pizza for supper, they head to the hospital for tests, and thats where all expected endings to the day came to an abrupt end.

Twas not a UTI, no idea what is causing the pain and so they check her in for scans and an overnight stay.

Meanwhile I’m at home preparing the pizza..

Cue frantic WhatsApp message… “I have to stay in overnight, please bring food and my pyjamas etc.”

😂 😂 😂

And so the day ended with me travelling in a taxi with a bag of overnight necessities and freshly baked pizza in their boxes, a hurried supper in the ward and then me driving Fiona (the car) home.

Meanwhile the parents settle in for a very uncomfortable night and I keep my phone on as per request.

Good night 🌃
