We’re thinking somewhere close enough to drive as I’m not too keen on flying at the moment and I really can’t imagine sleeping without a body pillow. I’m really addicted to that thing; sleep is almost impossible without it lately. Also since it’s winter, somewhere in the hinterland region would be perfect.
In other exciting news, Candice has found herself permanent employment. The last 7 months she has been working full time as a temp and it was becoming a little stressful not knowing how long that work would last for. After 60 applicants they chose 8 for an interview. Out of the 8 interviews, only 3 applicants made it to the next round of interviews – an hour long design test. Lastly Candice was asked to come in for another half hour chat and was taken on a tour of the business followed by a lunch with the boss and existing employees. At the end of the lunch she was finally offered the position. She has already spoken to the boss explaining our situation and that she will be requiring some time off in October for the birth of our little boy and he was completely fine with it. It’s such a relief to know now that in a few months when I go on maternity leave, Candice has stable employment. Bring home that bacon baby!
Today we went to the Brisbane baby expo. I was actually really dreading it as I hate crowds but we thought we should probably check it out for any expo bargains. We still had a few important items on out list that we hadn’t yet purchased but were able to pick up 2 of them today at really great prices.
|Firstly, an Angelcare movement and sound monitor. We got it at a lower price than we had seen advertised in other stores plus it came with a bonus nappy bin (see below)|
|An electric breast pump. I’m a little terrified of this to be perfectly honest.|
