I’m pregnant with my second bub and as I only had 6 months off with my first bub. I’m starting to get a bit anxious about the thought of 12months off. I can’t wait to spend more time with my DD and the new addition. But I’m worried I’ll get in the rut of cleaning cooking resting. What activities are there that don’t cost a fortune I can do? Thanks for your help
