We took Scarlett up to visit my gran in the old folks home. Scarlett got hold of some playing cards and found it highly amusing to hand random ones to everyone, then take it back, then hand it over again. Kept her amused the entire time we were there.
After we left we headed towards Morrison’s as she desperately needed her Soya Milk. She only had 1 carton left and she needed 1 for nursery, 1 for my nan’s and atleast 1/2 for home. So I grabbed some. Then we went to my nan’s as she was cooking dinner. Scarlett went down for a nap as she was tired and I knew dinner wasn’t going to be ready for at least an hour. She slept for 90 minutes, woke up just as we had finished eating. So she had her dinner in the highchair then she was let loose. We left for home. She had a snack, a bath and then watched some teletubbies before her bottle then bed.
Bank holiday Monday. Typically it was very wet outside so again we couldn’t do much. Scarlett had me up at 3am until about 4:30am. Then again at 6am. Finally we got up at 8:30 for the day. As I had given her a bottle at 4am, I just gave her proper breakfast at 8:30. She watched some teletubbies. We read a book. Played with her wooden music bits. Played sleeping lions. Just acted silly. Then I took her up for a nap at 10ish. She woke up at 12 when my dad turned up. I made him a cup of tea then we left to grab lunch. We were going to try out the new place that opened opposite Morrison’s but turns out it isn’t open, yet. Opens tomorrow. So we ended up at the Harvester. They were jam packed so we ended up waiting for our mains for so long. Scarlett did really well considering waiting isn’t exactly a toddler’s best skill. He dropped us home at 2:45 and sped off to his appointment. Mom was watching something on tele. afterwards we went to Morrison’s so I could attempt to get Scarlett’s passport photo done. It was the single most stressful 10 minutes of my life and they best be accepted by the passport people because I refuse to attempt that again! Scarlett was tired as she hadn’t had a chance to have an afternoon siesta but I managed to keep her up. She had her dinner at 5:30, bath at 6:15 and was in bed settled by 7. I watched Emmerdale then I watched 12 monkey’s. I have just started season 2. Season 1 was weird but interesting enough to warrant attempting the second season. I cleared away stuff, got our bags ready for the morning and climbed into bed at 10. I read a bit of my new book and was asleep by 10:30pm [according to my FitBit].
My stepmom’s birthday today. She is 42. 2 years ago she had a party for her 40th and I revealed I was pregnant there and then. My dad found it amusing that she was going to be a granny at 40.
Back to work today. Almost didn’t make it in on time. I was suppose to have been woken up by my alarm at 6:40am but I didn’t rise from the dead until 7:10 when my mom got in from work and enquired where I was? I managed to dress myself, brush my teeth and dress Scarlett [waking her beforehand] in the space of 8 minutes. Then I grabbed my lunch and off we went. We dropped her off at my Nan’s, swung by McDonald’s for a breakfast wrap then drove to my work. I got in the office for 7:55am. I start at 8!
I forgot to say the other day that I ordered a bunch of stuff for H&M for Scarlett. For our holiday. I got her a handful of dresses, some shorts and 2 pairs of shoes. I got her a pair of navy blue sandals and a pair of water/beach shoes. Very excited about those as I am hoping she will use them on all 3 of our holidays this year.
I also forgot to say mom and I have booked a week away Glamping in September. We are going to Notgrove in Gloucestershire. Just me, her and Scarlett. Should be fun.
On lunch now, watching Lucifer on Amazon Video.
