Wednesday she woke up at almost 9. So that was a good lay in. We had breakfast then headed to my nans for presents swapping. I didn’t actually eat breakfast as I had a bellyache.
My grandparents got Scarlett a pram and a new baby doll. A few clothes. A Harrod’s bear for 2017. Some chocolates. I got slippers, socks, a Harry Potter book about the film wands and some dove stuff. We had a cup of tea then we headed home. We finally opened all of our secret santa gifts, gifts from various family as well as stuff to and from each other. Scarlett got my a lovely bracelet with a locket charm that I can put 2 photos in.
My brother proposed to his girlfriend. We all knew about it (except her). She was crying. She said yes!
Scarlett played with her new kitchen set then I took her up for a nap. She wouldn’t settle on her own as she’s not feeling 100% so we laid down together in my bed. I think we got about an hour to so. We woke up just in time for dinner.
She didn’t eat much. Which isn’t like her. We did more playing then bath time. Her godmother came round with a present for her. She’d gotten her a trampoline. She and my mom helped put it together. My mom’s boyfriend chimes in with some help too. I’m just about able to put together a wooden bookcase that I got Scarlett. Even that was a bit tricky lol
It was up and Scarlett had a quick bounce then mom took her up to bed.
We caught up with Emmerdale then we watched some other bits on tele before heading to bed.
Thursday she gave me an epic lay in. She didn’t wake up till almost 9:30am. She’s going to hate me next week when I have to wake her to 7am lol
I gave her a bottle then I dressed her as we were going for breakfast at 10ish. We went to the harvester with my mom and her boyfriend. Scarlett ate 2 pancakes, some sausage and bacon then some yogurt. She also trialled using her new open top cup in public. So far we’ve only used it at home. She did really well and hardly spilt her water. After breakfast we popped into my nans to say Hi and have a cup of tea.
We got home at lunch and I put Scarlett down for a nap. She slept for almost 2 hours. I had to wake her up at 3 so we could go shopping. I needed to stock up on nappies and wipes etc as I know I will get to mid-January and find myself skint and in need of this stuff. We came back after shopping and chilled out. She bounced on her trampoline whilst I cooked dinner. I cooked chicken and chorizo pasta with cheese topped garlic bread. We ate then she had her bath. She’s been very grumpy for the last week. She perked up after her bottle. She played really nicely (and sang) for about an hour. I took her up to bed at 8. I’ve heard her coughing a lot since I’ve been in bed watching a film. The monitor keeps lighting up.
I set up my new lamp. I asked for a lamp for Christmas from my brother and his partner. I got a set of 2. I bought some light bulbs today and they fit so I now have a lamp next to my bed.
Friday she didn’t wake until 9:30. What a lay-in. Problem is, when I’m back at work I’ll be getting up at 7 so these lay-ins are not doing me any good in the long run lol so I’ll be waking her up in preparation for returning to work.
We went to my nan’s house as I feel like I haven’t really seen her over the festive period. We had a few cups of tea and Scarlett showed off her aqua doodle mat.
We picked Natalia (brother’s girlfriend) up from the station then we went home. I cooked me and Scarlett some dinner. It was later than usual as I had gone upstairs to put her new lamp in her room and put her washing away. She went to bed at 8ish. My mom took her up so I could sort my washing out.
My mom went to work and my brother and his girlfriend had fell asleep so I went upstairs to finish watching the Intern. Then I put on beauty and the beast. The new version. My mom said that I use to re-watch the original over and over when I was like 2/3. But I legit don’t even remember ever watching it. I couldn’t even tell you the plot except for Belle was a bookworm and the Prince was a cursed Beast. Anyways, I watched it and it wasn’t bad. Emma Watson did quite well as Belle. I had no idea she could sing but I suppose in Harry Potter she has no need to sing.
Scarlett woke up twice for cuddles. She’s really not herself at the moment. I may need to call for an out of hours appointment.
I went to sleep about 2:30am. My eyes are itchy again even tho I’ve been taking my antihistamines. It’s because I’m not at work. My routine is disrupted and I’m getting more sleep than usual so my eyes are suffering lol weird right!
Today Scarlett didn’t wake up until almost 10am. You can tell she’s not herself. I tried to call my Doctors but they’re shut as it’s a Saturday even tho they’re suppose to run a Saturday AM clinic every other weekend (including this weekend as per their website). So I tried 111 but after spending 30+ on hold I gave up. Thankfully Scarlett isn’t “that bad” so we’ll wait till the surgery is open Tuesday.
We watched the rest of Rise of the Guardians then more teletubbies. She had her bottle then I did her some breakfast. She had a banana and some yogurt. I put her up for a nap at 11:30. I fell asleep on my bed and woke up at 2ish. Oops! We got dressed then headed out to visit our Granny in the old folks home. We was there for over an hour. Scarlett had some crisps and water in a cup.
We headed home and I ordered dinner for us. She had chicken and chips then I took her up for a bath. We FaceTimed Brett for bath time. He likes it because it makes him feel like he’s part of it. I did her bottle then she said night to everyone and I took her up to bed at 7:15. I climbed into bed to catch up with season 4 of Elementary.
It’s New Year’s Eve tomorrow. I can’t believe we are so close to 2017 being done. I’m so ready for it to be over. I want to start a fresh. New year, new wishes.
