I've treated this part of my trip purely as a holiday; that is to say I’ve done nothing of particular interest other than relax. The weather has been a bit hit and miss so I’ve spent a lot of time reading and reflecting.

Sitting on the second beach of my stay here, Long Beach, (which for the record is supposed to be the best on the island, I’m not convinced but will come back to check out the others at some point) watching the sunset I feel an overwhelming sense of peace, something I don’t ever remember feeling before. I would challenge anyone to not feel anything but peaceful listening to the waves rolling in as the sun fades for the day.

I do wonder how long it would take to get bored in a place like this...I don’t think I could stay on one beach forever but there is definitely something to be said for hopping them! (Being completely honest I would need to inject a bit of city living every now again, purely to re-stock my toiletry bag!)

I kind of wish that I’d have done this trip years ago but realistically, I’m not sure if I would have appreciated it half as much. I know I’m extremely lucky to be in a position to do this and I can’t help feeling that this time will quite possibly remain as near to idyllic as I will ever get. Sounds quite sad when you say it like that but it really isn’t...nothing lasts forever and nor should it or we would all be stupidly bored!

I don’t think my old lifestyle would in any way cut it for me after this; perhaps that is why I’ve been blessed with a child to be with me now and to change my life thereafter. I believe everything happens for a reason. I had a few weeks of turmoil before leaving the UK when I was convinced that all my plans had been ruined. How wrong I was. I don’t think this could have come at a better time and if I’d have had a choice I don’t think I would have ever chosen the right time to have a family and would have continued living the single life, partying, having lots of fun for sure but as I mention above, nothing lasts forever and I was a wee bit bored of all that...I am cracking on a bit!

So right now I feel fabulous. We have our 20 week scan in 2 days. I’m very nervous but I’m sure all will be well. I’m nervously excited about the future – I have no idea what to expect but that only makes it better...bring it on! :)
