Today is my mom’s birthday. She is in Cyprus so we haven’t celebrated it with her. I sent her a “Happy Birthday” message and posted pics of Scarlett holding her birthday card that said “to nanny”, so that will have to do for now.
I had a half day today as I had a job interview scheduled for 3pm and Scarlett had the dentist at 5pm. So I left work at 12. Had lunch at my nan’s house. Chilled for a bit. Scarlett woke up before I left for my interview so I kissed her goodbye and off I went. It seemed to go okay. I got back to my nan’s for dinner and then we went to the dentist. She was really good.
I had lunch with my friend Rachel. She used to work with me at Mitie but she left on Monday. As I was off sick Monday I missed her farewell. Her and 2 other friends went for lunch, without me! So we agreed us 2 would meet. So we did. But the place nearby that we picked was unexpectedly closed so we ended up in McDonald’s. It was nice seeing her and chatting. We only ever use to have lunch together every other week as her lunch times alternated. One week she was on 12-1 and the other she was 1-2. I was always 1-2. She dropped me back to the office when we were done.
I had my coil fitting appointment scheduled in for 08:50. I felt so dizzy and sick because my head was bad again so I called in sick. My manager said to mention it to my doc so I did. She did my BP and said it was low, so not a cause for concern. She reckoned it was most likely down to my hayfever stuffing my head up. So I had my coil fitted. People lie. Every female I spoke to about the subject said it was a “mild discomfort”, similar to a smear. I have had a smear. This was NOTHING like that, I tell ya! Honestly, the pain from a c-section hurt less than having this tiny device fitted! Also, they had to try twice as the first one they tried, popped back out due to “a narrow passage” [don’t even ask] so after two attempts, it is in! Success! We really do not want a baby in the foreseeable. I think this thing will most likely remain where it is for at least 3 years, but we shall see, I could change my mind in 18 months [not likely though]. I went back home after it was fitted because blood, and pain. I laid on the sofa for a while. At 3ish I walked to my nan’s and ended up staying for my dinner then me and Scarlett walked home.
She was so unhappy and she had so many nasty poos. She did 2 before Nursery, 2 at Nursery and my Nan had changed 1 before I arrived at 3. She then did 1 more not long after I got there, and then before bath time she had done 1 more. And then she got in the bath and did 1 in the bath. She was traumatised because I had to use the shower to hose her, and the bath, down. She screamed like I was murdering her. I fully expected my neighbours to pop by and check she was ok lol she had her bottle and went straight to bed. No fuss. I was really concerned about her, 8 poos is excessive. I am hoping it is just teething, not a bellyache/bug. I will check her a few times before I go to bed just in case she has pooed and not woke up. I don’t want her to get a sore butt.
Today I woke up late so didn’t have chance to eat breakfast. My mom got back from Cyprus in the night. She flew in at midnight but didn’t get home until gone 2 I think. She heard us get up so she came down to say Hi. Scarlett was more interested in watching Teletubbies. The usual lol my grandad picked us up, we swung by McDonald’s so I could grab breakfast then he dropped me at work. I had my first subway experience today. Note to myself for the future: make sure the steak doesn’t have peppers and onions in it. Spent 10 minutes digging through to pick them all out. So gross lol
We are due to go to Brett’s later. Aiming to get the 6pm train. I hope Scarlett isn’t as grumpy tonight as she was yesterday because it makes the journey much more stressful than it already is.
