Today normal services resumed; my pains disappeared and there was no sign of Baby Mac making an appearance, so we ran a few errands, one of which is my favourite thing these days! Scan as you shop in Tesco! So. Much. Fun. You can tell Matthew feels the same.

In the evening we hung out with some friends, which involved many laughs and some pineapple…both good things which could potentially bring on labour, heh heh heh.

Sadly not.

Matts and I went along to the Vintage Kilo Sale at the Ironworks this afternoon. He was a bit sceptical about what it was going to be like, but as I suspected, he left with more clothes than me!

I got a couple of dresses (one which doesn’t fit my bump right now, and another which is too big…harf. It’ll need to be taken in a bit, but I’m hoping it can be turned in to a nursing friendly dress for some of the weddings we have coming up!) and two wee scarves, he got 4 shirts and a flannel fleece!

I was surprised at how busy it was! There was definitely a lot more men’s clothes than women’s, but if we’d got tickets for the early bird entry that might have been different. It was definitely good fun, and if these dresses work out then we’ll definitely be checking it out again next time.

I woke up this morning with a very unpleasant spiky throat. Hoping it was just hay fever related we nipped to the Pharmacy for some Pregnancy suitable antihistamine, but when Matthew got it the next day (…oops) we realised it was actually the cold. Sob.

Despite feeling a bit rough, we enjoyed a walk along Praia da Gale, some more sunbathing and then a wee trip to Algarve Shopping for a quick walk around the shops and then dinner. Amazingly, all we bought was a pair of earrings (for me, of course). There was plenty of beautiful clothing, but they were all designed for small, non pregnant, ladies.

Algarve Shopping is a really nice open air shopping centre, so I couldn’t resist getting a few snaps of Matthew as we strolled along in the evening sun. You can tell he loved it!

I love these new trousers I got from Marks & Spencers last Saturday! They’re jogger material, so they’re super comfy, but they have a checked pattern, so they look smart. They’re amazing! I feel like I’m leaving the house in my pyjamas when I wear them, and I’m okay with that. They have an elasticated waist with a cord string to tighten them, and they have pockets! I’m never wearing jeans again.
