41. Eagerly Anticipated

Still no news as yet...

I didn't realise how tiring it can be when you're anxiously waiting on something you find important! Kas is doing really well, still keeping active, no yelling at me (just yet...) and generally keeping positive about everything. There is only the odd occasion that I see it all building up inside her and she releases very calmly and gets back to the job at hand. That's my girl!

The official due date is this Friday and they say it can happen anytime now. Hard to believe that my next blog post will be of the new arrival. I'm hoping that I don't become the baby bore, so I'll stop with the baby chat now...at least until it arrives anyway...

I've also got the eagerly anticipated PCR test due this week as well. It's all happening. As you can imagine, my fingers are still crossed in the hope I can continue the downward trend and have a result that drops below the 1% mark for the first time ever. This next blog post will be a busy one indeed!

Then if that wasn't enough on my plate, I've just come back from my mate Dawsies' Bucks Weekend to the Lake District in sunny England. Such a good time had by all the 20 blokes who all dressed up at "70's Pimps"! After confirming with the House we were staying at that their definitely is mobile phone coverage, we set off from the bonny lands and off to England to live the weekend that I organised months before. When I arrived, I was very thankful to see that I did indeed have the promised mobile coverage - I was on call for baby duty! As most people are aware, 'what goes on tour, stays on tour' is the Bucks Weekend motto so I won't be sharing any stories....only that Dawsie was fast asleep by midnight and we literally had horses from the surrounded paddocks munching bread from his Borat swimsuit that he was only permitted to wear...

The big day is this weekend - Jason (Dawsie) and Jen's wedding at Solsgirth House, Scotland. It's a beautiful, old, family owned place and somewhere I cannot wait to visit tomorrow night when I head up there for the rehearsal. Again, I am on call for baby duty if the wee one hasn't arrived by then. Hopefully I will at least be able to get through my speech and give the oldies in the room a few horror stories from when he was a young fella growing up with me. Kas is hoping to get up to the House to at least see the ceremony - she hates missing out on anything!

It's just been great to be able to see my good mates Drew & Alana while they're over here for the wedding - nothing like catching up with your old friends! It's been good to see them again and getting on with things as though we only saw them yesterday. My other mate Damo from Australia is also over here as well...to get a piece of Oz when you're living in another country is priceless and something I definetly don't take for granted. I've always been one to make the most out of every day and every situation. Let's just hope the Wallabies keep up their good form in the Rugby World Cup!

The next update won't be far away - what goes on between now and then will be some of the biggest weeks of my life!

Hi Matt,

First of all, good luck to you and Karen and congratulations. Please let us know once the baby arrives. We'll be thinking of you both.

Secondly, good luck with your next PCR results. I sure hope you remain on the downward trend. A sub 1% would be fantastic.
