Boxing Day Scarlett was much happier and back to herself. We went to the cemetery to lay a wreath on my uncles grave. 14 years we’ve done that. In March he’ll have been gone 15 years. Where does the time go? After we visited his, we visited my nan’s sister. She’s been gone 6 years already. Madness!
We left the cemetery and went to my nan’s brother’s house. He puts on a Boxing Day buffet. Every year. Last year I was 35 weeks pregnant and struggled to eat much because my stomach was squished by a certain little lady. This year she was terrorising everyone when they had food and attempting to play with her cousin who is 3 months older and walking. She ate lots of skips and I gorged on mozzarella sticks lol
She woke up at 7ish. I gave her a bottle then we played then watched some tele together. She was tired but hungry by half 8 so I gave her some porridge and dressed her then strapped her in her stroller for a nap. I got myself washed and dressed then put the final bits in our bags, grabbed our gifts for everyone and then at 12ish we went to the station. I fed her a bottle at 12:30. We got the train at 1 and Brett met us off the train at 2:30.
Scarlett and I opened our gifts from Brett and his family. They opened ours. Brett got her the yellow fisher price activity chair and a stroller and babydoll. His mom got her some clothes and got me some pyjamas. His brothers got her a bath toy with extra bath bits. She’ll love that. She’s an extra spoiled bub!!
She had meatballs, mash and gravy for dinner followed by trifle. Then after some playtime she had a bath and at 7 she had a bottle. She was flat out straight after so I laid her in the travel cot then Brett and I went to the pub for a drink whilst his mom listened out for her. We came back and Brett cooked some dinner and now we are in bed watching Monsters Inc.
Overall, a good two days.
