By the way, eat your heart out Ros! I bought The Sims 3 - and it's fantastic apart from the fact that you can't fast forward through the boring actions like sleeping and eating. You literally have to watch your Sim sleeping for 10 minutes while he or she slowly regains her energy... big mistake on the creators' part. I'm hoping they're going to release a free patch to rectify the problem. So anyone who wants to buy it - wait until they release the second version... www.thesms3.com
In the meantime, I have exactly 60 days until my due date; and 52 days until my maternity leave starts. I'm taking four months' leave - one month unpaid. So I need to stay at work as long as possible so I don't have to come back to work in December... hope baby is patient til then!
