Here I am at work, sitting in the dark, because the lights went off. It seems to be a monthly occurrence around deadline time. I am kind bummed, but there is nothing I can do. My laptop is at home (its too heavy to carry up and down each day) and we aren’t allowed to leave.
I have filed most of my adverts and can’t do anything until the lights come on later, as I have to work on screen most of the time.
Anyways, my one co-worker, Zee is pregnant and leaving on maternity leave next week. Felt like just the other day she told me she was pregnant. That is a bit of a funny story if I say so myself.
We were having a baby shower for our receptionist and a lady in finance and my Mom made the cupcakes for the shower. Zee who doesn’t eat sweet things was eating one. So I said in my loud voice: ‘You are eating a cupcake? You never do! Are you pregnant?’ She was quick to say no.
However, an hour later she entered my office asking how I knew. ‘I didn’t know, I just said it’ I said in my defence. Turns out Zee had just found out about it herself. Now, so many months later she is almost ready to give birth.
She is having a little girl and I have enjoyed going through the motions with her. Seeing the scans, especially the 3D one. Asking about morning sickness and I tease her about her Buddha belly. LOL!
She received quite a number of gifts on Saturday and then there is still her work’s shower to go. By the time baby Z is born on the 25th, she’ll be ready for everything. I think she is going to be an awesome Mum. 🙂
Anyways, that’s enough ramblings from me… I’d better get back to my paper work… See what else I can do when the lights are off.
Have a happy Tuesday further.
