Sunday I left Scarlett in the front room while I did her breakfast. She’d asked for tea, toast and a banana. I hear a noise and went to investigate. She’s there wedged between the tv unit and the tree, which has fallen down. Baubles everywhere. I was like “what happened?” And she went “oh”. I intended to get my haircut in the morning whilst Scarlett went with my grandparents to visit my gran up the old folks home. But I decided I didn’t have the money so I went along to visit her then we went to my nan’s. She cooked dinner. Scarlett went for a nap at 12:45 and woke up at 3:30. She ate her dinner when she got up.
She’s learned to say “Good Girl”. It’s so cute!
She went to bed at 7ish. We had supper and watched some tele. The holiday was on tv at half 10 so mom and I started watching it. We didn’t realise how late it was and we went to bed at like 1am. I think I fell asleep at half past.
Monday was a struggle due to my aforementioned late night. I only need 5/6 hours to survive so I’m not a typical “I need 8 hours at least” person. But bed at 1:30am and alarm at 6:30am just isn’t adequate. I struggled.
We had secret santa at work. I got a doodle pad, a lunch box and a swear box. All good choices!
After work mom did dinner and Scarlett helped us eat, obviously. I did her bath time. She whacked her head when we was going into her room. She cried and then we told the door off for hurting her (obviously) then she was ok. She did her book advent for Day 18. Her book was “The Elves and the Shoemaker”. She went to bed at 7:15. She was tired as Monday is her long day at Nursery.
I watched Emmerdale then waited for Criminal Minds at 9pm then learned it wasn’t on. It must be on a seasonal break in the US. Majorly sucks balls. So I ended up waiting till 10pm for Blindspot then I got into bed at 11ish.
Tuesday was long at work. Had lots to do which is great as it keeps me busy but the day just dragged. After work we went home and Scarlett had her dinner whilst I had a shower. When she’s eaten I took her up for a bath. She had her bottle, we did book advent for Day 19. Her book was “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs”. She went to bed at 7.
I’ve had a card through the day from Royal Mail saying there’s a package at the depot for me. It’s there because it has an outstanding customs charge. It’s come from the US. No idea who it’s from. So I’m really excited to find out. I paid the customs charge online and it’s being re-delivered on Thursday!!!
I had my dinner at 8ish then I caught up on 4 weeks worth of The Gifted. I’ve watched 3 episodes. Got 1 left. It’s getting quite good. I got into bed at 11ish.
Wednesday I woke up a few times in the night with a bad head. Eventually when my alarm went off I knew my head wasn’t going away. I took some tablets and when they didn’t touch my head I knew I couldn’t go to work. So I phoned in to say I’m staying at home today. I dressed Scarlett, did her morning bottle and then my mom took her to be dropped at nursery.
I’m laid in bed, in the dark, reveling at the quietness of the house. Mom brought back breakfast. We ate in the dark then we both went to bed.
I woke up at 12. Mom went to pick up Scarlett from Nursery. We had cuddles then she went down for a nap. I tidied up and had some breakfast then she woke up at quarter to 3. We read her books then I did her dinner. She had pizza. She had a bath. We FaceTime Brett a lot at bath time so he can join in. I usually leave my phone next to the bath, leaning on something. She’s never touched it before. But I left the bathroom for a moment to grab her towel. I come back and my iPhone is swimming (my heart dropped). I fished it out and gave it a good dry/blow in the holes and tbh it seems to be ok. It must’ve been submerged for literally a nanosecond. She went to bed at 7:15ish.
She woke up at 9 crying. She was feverish so I gave her calpol. She then cried for a bottle so I gave her 5oz. She drank it all. She seemed happier. I let her play for 10 minutes. She then did a nasty poo so I changed her. I asked her if she was ready for bed. She said No then she said Yes. So we went up and I put her back to bed at about 10ish. I heard her cry out a few times in the night but she didn’t wake up so I didn’t go in to her. I just looked on the monitor and she was ok.
Today she was miserable when I first got her up. She went to Nursery and I went to work. I finished at 12. I got on the bus at 12:30 and then walked to the hairdressers to book in. It took an hour for me to be seen. I finally got called. They washed, cut and blow dried my hair. Then they straightened it because I mentioned I was going out. I paid and then I walked to Sainsbury’s to be picked up. Scarlett had her new dress on for the party at Nursery. We dropped her off at 3 then we went back to my nans house. I put some makeup on and changed into jeans. At 4:30 we picked her back up. She’d had a blast but still wasn’t keen on santa. Mom dropped me at the restaurant on the lake.
I went in and booked in. They led me to our table. I sat down and ordered a drink and waited for everyone else. We had a blast catching up. I had cheese topped tomato and garlic bread for a starter. Then I had steak and chips. I could not eat anything else after. We stayed for another drink and some of the others had pudding. We settled our bill then my friend dropped me Home. I had a quick shower then I caught up with Emmerdale and now I’m in bed.
My parcel came. I had totally forgotten I’d ordered a “Slay all day” tshirt for the 20 year anniversary of Buffy The Vampire Slayer. It’s massive. But it’s comfy!
It’s my last day at work tomorrow then I have 10 days off. I cannot wait!
Ps. Haven’t done her book advent for yesterday or today. We’ll all 3 tomorrow.
