Anyway, I thought I'd walk like I mean it and look like I mean it as well.
The offending mid-
fat pouch/ baby cushion. I get that the baby needs cushioning around the belly but seriously, do the hips and thighs need cushioning too? The arms and face are a little bit padded as well. I felt like Humpty Dumpty when I was pregnant. I'd love to rollerblade but I don't know how safe it is while pushing a pram. I don't want a runaway pram in case I fall.
It might also help my cause if I didn't precede my walk with this.
So, while I was walking on my own I got the chance to absorb my surroundings and Centennial Park really is such an idyllic place. I've only walked the perimeter of the park and there's so much more in it. I'd love to do the self-guided walks one day. I passed by this lake which is one of many.
Suddenly, I had a Mr Darcy moment (you know the one, when he jumps into the lake at Pemberly, of course you know what I'm talking about). No, I didn't jump in the lake in my breeches but it made me want to watch P & P again. Bubby is at daycare and Chububby is asleep, I guess now is my chance. While I fold a mountain of clothes and iron some. My days of watching TV with my feet up are well and truly over.
