It’s been hard work maintaining my composure lately. 4 teenage boys hit me and nearly mugged me for my bag in broad daylight. Thank god someone pulled out of their driveway next to where they had me surrounded. The hormone pills have me feeling like a 90-year-old nana who needs a nap to recover from her hard afternoon of doing nothing. My scan and blood test is tomorrow then the next day I start pessaries which caused all sorts of random pains last time. If last time had worked I would be 13 weeks pregnant today.Why yes, I am an optomist. You should hear me when I’m in a bad mood.


But…the fence was finished on Friday and I am still trying to wrap my head around how something so simple…a fence…can change a person’s life. It’s tall, we have complete privacy in our own backyard and the top is nice and sharp (I sliced my wrist when I slipped so I have proof!). I feel safer in my own home and I can’t wait to have a little one running around the backyard with no chance of prying eyes.

  3. Glad you feel safer /more private with your fabulous new fence…maybe you should carry a piece with you and get those horrific kids! I am sure your garden will be filled with the sound of children’s play very soon.

    It sounds as though you really needed the fence. It looks great. I don’t know where you are. I am really new to this site.

    The smallest challenges are our greatest acheivements and reward especially when you have mementos to prove it. Battle scar, NA…. just lasting smiles that come later with a giggle. Good work dear and when the time comes your little one will be thrilled. “Mommy built a fence for me, Yeah!!”

    Steph, you appear to be living in the Badlands. I know it happens but this is fricken ridiculous! Did they get the little sods? Go to the FGC/ Restorative Justice thing if they have one. Vent your spleen.

    Steph, I am SO sorry to hear about your near-mugging experience! Thank goodness a neighbor pulled out his car and the boys then ran off? I hope you are feeling better now and that Dave is taking good care of you. I hope you have a nice, calm, peaceful weekend. And fingers crossed for all the baby stuff coming up.

    What horrid, vile little boys, accosting a woman, I wish I could give them a piece of my mind!!
    You have a beautiful back garden. All that space for little feet to run around. I am looking forward to the photos of that scene when it becomes reality! Thinking of you and sending loads of positivity your way.
