As some of you know, I'm due to head off on maternity leave in the next few weeks. In preparation of business as usual here on the EN CC, I'm pleased to introduce you all to @Katie who has already begun working with us and will be doing so for the foreseeable!
The last weeks of pregnancy, they can feel like years! A hot water bottle filled with cold water on the back of the neck while you sit, feet up, doing the mindless activity of your choice....In the cool of the evening put on your favorite dance music and boogie down to tire out the little stranger who may delight you by kicking along to the beat. XO
@Cathie19 you are a braver woman than I!
@Sally221 gonna try the cold water bottle right now, it's not gotten any better throughout the day. Hopefully hubbie can bring some ice packs for the hospital too. And yes! The baby adores music, just a shame it isn't mine. He loves my husbands indie rock jams so I've been subjected to Arctic Monkeys for the last 6 months.
@Stephanie .... Ta daa!
This is just a little momento till your “precious moment” is born! I remember when you first appeared on the scene and have watched (not in a creepy sense 😱🤪😊) you grow and stay positive as admin. Being an admin/moderator is not an easy task, but you have always stayed fair minded and professional, as per your employment requires. Your video preparations for our “celebrations” as well as your assistance when our computer systems were not friendly have all been appreciated. The CC Zoom social meet ups have allowed those who have participated to see your fun loving nature and your no nonsense approach. When you do start your maternity leave, please pop your head into the CC, if you get a chance, just so we can all know your are all travelling well. I have included just a few of your stories in the image. To say thanks, for you have made a difference....... 💐
@Cathie19 this is such a lovely tribute to @Stephanie 's amazing work in the CC so far, and testament to some of the fun you've all had with meetups! We're super excited to see the arrival of her little one, and I'm sure she'll be back before you know it 😊
@Katie welcome and we are happy to have u as part of our little family🤪. There is a wild variety of cool people onboard for certain. @Stephanie we have a space just alittle bigger for you and our upcoming mascot...! Boy? Girl? We are all aunties n uncles I hope. Cause a few of us were not blessed with our own children. Waiting with u....can we zoom soon after to meet that precious one? Hugs, Clara
