We are due our first baby on 1st May and, after spending all of last summer trying to sort the garden out, it has been ruined by building work. We have no grass, all our gravel was churned up and our decking was ruined.
Furthermore, we don't really have any other couple friends with kids so socialising with our baby will be difficult outside the house.
We've had a troubled pregnancy with lots of issues and with me having to take strong anti anxiety medication to cope with things and the garden has just added to the stress.
I really wanted to be able to have people over for tea and cake in the garden over the summer to meet our little one, and hopefully make some friends, from our antenatal class so we weren't quite so alone but now that pipe dream has vanished.
