We went into my work place yesterday to say Hi to everyone. Firstly we sat upstairs with Rachel and Graham for lunch. Graham actually held Scarlett which is pretty special as he “doesn’t do babies” haha after Rachel’s lunch hour was up I took Scarlett into the office. There was hardly anyone in the office. They are all off sick. Part timers lol
Scarlett was held by an ex-colleague called Lee. His missus still works for my company so he’s often in the building lol she kept smiling at him. She was also held by his girlfriend then she was held by Jack, my team leader. She was also held by a few other people. She seemed fairly happy with everyone except Jack’s brother who works at our company too. She cried as soon as he had her lol no idea why.
After my mom finished work she picked us up and we went with her to Morrison’s to do some shopping. We desperately needed some food in the house lol I got Scarlett a few outfits in 3-6m for our holiday as she’ll be 5 months (and hopefully will fit them). I also got her a coat in 6-9m. It’s huge so even thou she’ll be hitting 6m in July and it’ll still be warm-ish, she’s quite little, so it’ll fit her for a while. Probably till she’s like a year old lol They’re lovely bits and I only spent £30.
She wasn’t working Thursday night as her boyfriend was over so she babysat for me whilst I went to bingo for the first time since I’ve had Scarlett. I use to go a lot in the last month before I had her. I won £25 in the first few rounds then didn’t win again all night. It was nice being out and I had a cheeky cider lol
Scarlett was 2 months old on Thursday so we did the usual sticker thing.
Friday we stayed home in the morning. Mom made breakfast then I got up. I decided to take Scarlett swimming because the weather was nice. So mom dropped us in town. I went to the post office and finally posted my child benefit form as well as a returning item to eBay. Then I did a little shopping. I printed a photo of Scarlett to put in a frame for my dad to have at his house. I bought a new bra. Just basically had a wander around. We went swimming and she managed 20 minutes before she got cold. She was starving when we got out so I sat down in the cafe downstairs and got them to warm her bottle up. She hates it at room temperature and I don’t blame her. She had her bottle then we got on the bus. We stopped off at nan’s for a bit before mom picked us up. We had a cheeky Chinese which we picked up on our way home. It’s Easter weekend so why not.
Omg. Scarlett had a feed then she was really upset with wind. She did a massive poo so I changed her and she was still upset so I figured she needed to burp. She burped eventually. All was good. I gave her a bath then she started crying for food so I made her a 4oz up, knowing that she’d probably only need a top up of 1-2oz. I was feeding her and I thought “uh oh I need a poo again” (earlier I had to dash to the loo coz I needed to go and it was like diarrhoea). I was sat feeding her contemplating whether to stop, put her down and go loo. I’m so glad I didn’t. Literally a second later she puked up the oz she drank. If I had left her she’d have choked no doubt. I should’ve just sat on the loo with her lol she then fell asleep so I’m did a mad dash before I crapped myself lol
Today I got up after Scarlett had her first feed of the day then went back to sleep. Whilst she was napping I did some washing, washed and sterilised her bottles and then I had a sneaky bath. She woke up soon after so I dressed her for the day then we went downstairs. It was hammering down outside so I had no intentions of going out till I needed to. So we watched TV. By we I mean me. She spent the day napping and feeding lol she had 20 minutes underneath he play mat as that’s all she tolerates before she whinges lol we had dinner then mom drove us to my nan’s as I was dog sitting for them tonight. We swung by the garage to fuel up her car and I got myself a bottle of WKD to pretend I have a social life lol
I watched Friends all evening in between Scarlett eating. She did a lovely explosive poop in her nappy. Luckily she didn’t explode on her clothes. I was sorting her out, and whilst I had no nappy on her after I’d wiped her she did a huge fart and a load of poop came out all over the changing mat. Dirty moo. She’s clean now and we are in bed. My Nan and grandad got back from the wedding just now.
My eye is swollen again. I must be allergic to something. I still have the pain in my head from my wisdom teeth. It’s starting to get right on my nerves because it feels like I have a soft spot on my head and someone is poking it. It’s awful.
I’m off to sleep as Scarlett is drifting off and I think I should join her.
P.S. I have a “date” on Monday. I’m meeting a guy for a coffee/tea. By myself. Mom will have Scarlett. I need to vet him but he seems pretty sound. And he’s local. Praise the lord lol no one is ever local. He’s not too much older either.
