Friday was my last day at work. I worked really hard to finish everything I could before I left at 1pm. My mom picked me up at 1 and we went to my Nan’s for lunch. We left there to go to Costco as I needed to pick up a few items. We grabbed what I needed and I picked 2 items for my mom to wrap up for me as she had no idea what to get me. After Costco we dropped my Nan back home then mom and I went to Morrison’s so I could get some stocking fillers for Scarlett. We dropped it all home and had a quick cuppa then we headed back out to pick Brett up from the station. Then we went to pick up Scarlett. She was so happy to see him there. She ran over and gave him a big hug. She looked at me like I was shady though. As I NEVER pick her up. Neither does he. But apparently I’m the one she was confused about lol
We got home and she played. We opened our gifts from him. He opened ours. He took her up for a bath then he put her to bed. She didn’t go to sleep straight away. We could hear her singing to herself an hour later.
We ordered Pizzahut then we climbed into bed and watched a film. I made him watch Burlesque. He enjoyed it surprisingly.
Saturday Scarlett woke up at 9am which was a lovely lay in. I left her in my bed with Brett whilst I made her bottle. She drank it then we went downstairs. I did her some breakfast then she played. We watched some Postman Pat. Brett took her up for a nap at 11:15. She didn’t wake until almost 2pm. When she was up we got dressed and went to my nan’s. I made some lunch and she played with her cousins. My uncle was painting his girl’s nails and Scarlett was watching. She seemed really intrigued. When his youngest stood up from the stool, she sat down in her place and put her hands on the table ready. It was adorable. So he painted her nails for her and surprisingly she sat still for him to do it. She then went around showing off her nails. It was just so funny.
We had dinner there and then went home at 6:45. Brett bathed Scarlett and then he went to my nans to pick up his hoodie. He had left it there. I did Scarlett’s bottle whilst he was gone then when he was back I took her up to bed. She was tired.
My mom went to work at 8:45. It was just me and Brett. We were watching a film on TV. I went up for a shower then we had our much needed chat about the future. We’ve decided we want to give our relationship another go. We have things we want from each other and things we should/need to work on. We have wishes for 2018. I have personal goals. So does he. One thing we agree on is less rowing. I mean, who likes to row anyway!
He went up and had a shower. I put NCIS on in bed and we watched some. He fell asleep at 1am. I switched the TV off at 2am and went to sleep myself.
Today it is Christmas Eve! Like for real, Christmas Eve. I heard Scarlett at 8am but she didn’t whinge to get up so I left her and she went back to sleep. So did I. She woke up at 10am. What a babe! She had her bottle in bed with us and we played silly games then we went downstairs. We had some breakfast. She had tea, toast and banana. The usual. She went up for a nap at about half 11. We got into bed with the TV on as it was cold downstairs and we didn’t need to do anything. We could chill. It was nice. We went downstairs at half 12 and I stuck some tv on. I made us lunch at 1ish. Brett went up and woke Scarlett up at 2. She had some lunch. Though she didn’t eat much of it. She opened her Christmas Eve Box. She got a book (‘Twas the night before Christmas), underwater bath lights, a note pad and crayons, a Christmas dvd (Arthur Christmas) and some pyjamas.
Before she’d woken up we had decided that me and her would spend Christmas at his. We hadn’t planned to. I was happy to be at home. But I just sat there thinking about him going home and how we aren’t even celebrating Christmas at ours until the 27th and it just made no sense to stay home. So I packed some bits and picked a few presents for Scarlett to open, and grabbed the items I had bought for his family then we got in the car. My mom dropped us as the station at 4:30. We got on the train and finally got to his area at 5:45.
Scarlett was tired and a bit shy at first. Like usual. But she soon jumped all over Scott and Nanny. She had a bath and then we had some dinner. She didn’t eat much. She played a bit then at 8:45 I did her bottle then at 9 Brett took her to bed. I’m thankful she doesn’t understand Christmas yet. Imagine trying to convince a 3/4 year old that they have to go to bed because santa is coming!
We’re just watching some film on TV and enjoying the fact we haven’t got any presents to wrap etc.
Merry Christmas all …
