Boxing Day 2017

Yesterday I didn’t drop off until almost 3am. Stupid Pro Plus tablets. I forgot they have caffeine in them. Brett woke me up not long after I had nodded off because he’d had a really bad dream. He was thrashing about and shouting in his dream. Weird!

Today Scarlett woke up today at 7 but she settled so I left her. She finally woke up at 8am. I did her bottle then she had some breakfast. She didn’t want to nap so I left her with Brett’s mom whilst we went to Argos. He wanted to get his PS4 in the Boxing Day sales. I offered to pay half. So I gave him £150. Whilst in Argos I got myself a new storage unit for my bedroom and Scarlett some more earrings (if she ever lets me change them). We came back and his mom had dressed Scarlett. She played and then we had some lunch. She was tired but wouldn’t go to sleep but she did curl up on my lap. She was almost asleep but then she noticed everyone had chocolates so she climbed down to investigate. My mom turned up at 2:40 to pick us up from Brett’s. She stopped for a cup of tea and a toilet break. We loaded the car. I forgot about a million things then we finally set off. We stopped at services just before we hit Guildford then we powered on to my nan’s brother’s house. He always does a Boxing Day buffet open house. So we stopped by to say Hey! We ate some food. I drank some wine. Then we headed home. Scarlett had a bath with me then mom dressed her so I could wash my hair in peace. Scarlett cried all the way through bath time and getting dressed. She felt super hot so I gave her some calpol then a bottle. She was sat with my mom and she fell asleep all cuddled up so I took her up to bed.

We got out the prosecco. We watched Emmerdale from today and then had some cheese and crackers. Boursin is too more-ish!

I came up to bed at gone 11. I checked Scarlett and she was roasting still so I gave her some Nurofen. She wasn’t that bad at being woken up for medicine. She took it then just flopped on me so she could go back to sleep. I just held her for 5 minutes then I laid her down.

Brett messaged me to say he’s been sick a few times and he’s feverish. Not good. We’ve just spent 5 days with him so someone, somewhere has got germs and have shared them. Which means we may have caught something too. I hope he’s okay. I’m crossing my fingers that it’s just something he’s eaten and that Scarlett’s fever is teething related. I’m fully expecting a long night ahead as she’s coughing a lot in the night and the monitor keeps lighting up.

We shall see…

It’s our Christmas tomorrow. We’re going to my nan’s in the morning to open presents then we’ll come home and do ours or eat then do ours. Not sure which. I’m not fussed either way.
