I am finally feeling more like a human being today after being ill all week, and so we decided we couldn’t miss out on a chance to take Georgie out for a walk in the snow while it was (relatively) nice weather.
James, in his current role of over-protective & very bossy husband, decided that it was safer for us to drive to a local country park instead of walking to one of the local parks. The logic being that the pavements in our local area resemble ice rinks and he is a bit concerned about his pregnant wife falling over. To be fair to him, the snow at the country park was full of untouched non-slippy snow and was easy enough to
walk on wade through without risk of falling over. So, yea, ok, I admit it… he was right.
I do have a history of being rather clumsy, after all… During my last pregnancy I actually managed to fall out of our house, down a big step, ending up at triage, who wanted to send me to A&E afterwards to deal with the blood dripping all down my leg (and onto their floor, oops). I think back to the panic-filled drive to hospital and forgive my husband for his alpha male protectiveness. I’m banned from leaving the house on my own (and Georgie doesn’t count!) until the icy weather clears up.
This morning’s outing was short but fun. It was great to see Georgie walk on snow and really take notice of it for the first time. She was intrigued, and enjoyed herself. It didn’t take long for her to get too cold and so we weren’t there for long… but given how tired I still am and achy with SPD, I wasn’t complaining about heading home so soon!
