As all seasoned mummies know, there are a few pieces of advice that people give you before you welcome your first little darling into the world that you really should heed. Top of the list are: sleep now; put your feet up; and enjoy a hot cuppa while you can.
But did I listen to any of these pearls of wisdom? No. Oh, what I would do now to wind back the clock and enjoy a few more afternoon naps ahead of Tin Box Tot’s arrival…sigh!
With less than three months to go until Tin Box Baby 2’s due date and seven weeks until I start my maternity leave, I’ve decided to make a list of the things I plan to do before I become a mum of two.

Go for a spa day
Work treated me to a spa voucher at Christmas, so I have booked myself into the Grand Harbour Spa in Southampton a few weeks before I go on maternity leave. TBT will be having a ‘daddy day’ while I wallow in the pool and enjoy a facial. Fantastic!
Get away in the caravan
Before I get too big to fit through Tin Box’s door I want to enjoy a few more weekends away. Despite the damp weather we’ve ready started and have more trips planned in the next few months. Expect a few posts about our caravan adventures in the weeks to come.
Brave an NCT nearly new sale
Sort out the baby’s wardrobe
Bring order to some cupboards
Get ahead with blogging
When TBT was born I felt utterly disorientated. I remember stressing for days just about writing a ‘hello, our baby is here’ post on Facebook’ – not at all like me. So just in case I suffer a similar brain-fart this time round I want to draft a few timeless posts that I can publish at the click of a button. Hopefully, button clicking will not be beyond me, but who knows!
