A change is as good as a rest

Or so they say. On that basis we decided at the weekend that we would take the week of St Patrick's Day off and take ourselves off to sis in law's place in the Cotswolds for a few days. As my cycle started on March 1st this month, and I normally ovulate sometime around cd16-cd18, it's highly likely that St Patrick's Day (March 17th) will be more to do with lovin' than drinking this year. John and I are very compatible in many ways, but one of them is that neither of us are very good at drunken sex. We've attempted it a couple of times, but invariably neither of us are up to it (if you'll pardon the pun!) and we end up snoring.

So we'll put this "just relax" malarkey to the test this month and see what happens. We fly out on Monday 16th, with no other plan than to lounge around a very nice cottage in the country, have lots of lie-ins, possibly a few country walks and maybe a bit of shopping and wining and dining.

If we hit target this month I would be 12 weeks gone on my 40th birthday. I'm already dreaming about how I could announce it at my birthday party. Somebody shoot me now.

As for the whole date counting thing - sigh - I'd shoot you if I wasn't equally guilty my self. 'Let she who is without sin ... etc'

I could throw stones at both of ye if ye like?

Great minds and all that, we are in London next weekend for what should be the big O.

Aw, wish I was going away for Saint Paddy's.

A glass of wine or two and romantic walks in March paves the way for a nice surprise for the New Year!

Good Luck!

PS. I'm crap at drunken sex too. Unfortunately this is my wife's favourite kind ;-)

Drunkn sex is the best, but you have to time it correctly.Right between 'I'm a bit tipsy' and 'I feel like a porn star' is perfect.If you wait till 'this floor looks very comfie' its just too late.

I've just realised that I haven't left any reply comments on my last three posts. Apologies for the silence, I have just been a bit down after the bad news last Friday.

WFI - I think all us long term ttcers have an inbuilt calendar.

Xbox - Hope the holiday was productive!

Mick - Have good Paddy's Day wherever you celebrate it.

PIB - I can only manage it on "I'm a bit tipsy". After that it's "I am comatose" which isn't really the desired effect.
