Tuesday after work we went up the hospital to visit my Nan. She looked alright considering she’d had surgery at her ripe old age of almost 90. Scarlett was really well behaved and didn’t run around the ward as I had expected her to. We left for Home and grabbed food on the way as I hadn’t eaten.
Wednesday we had a big meeting at work. Well the meeting itself was at the Holiday Inn in the conference room. Apparently my job is at risk due to a restructure, coming from the merger of my department (and our sub department) with another department. Basically they’ve come in and told us we have to fight for our jobs. But they’re moving my office to another office. 9 miles away. As a non-driver this won’t work for me. So I’ve no choice but to leave. It left us all in low spirits if I’m being honest. Luckily I already had an interview lined up for the afternoon so fingers crossed something comes from that.
Thursday Scarlett didn’t go to bed till late. Well she did go to bed at a normal time. But she was still awake at 9pm. I even climbed in her bed with her for 10 minutes and it didn’t make a difference. I caught her chewing her dummy so I’ve taken it off her. She’s too old to have 1 now and she doesn’t need it. It’s just become habit for her.
Friday Brett got off the train when I finished work so we picked him up. It was great having him here for bath and bedtime on a Friday for a change. He doesn’t usually get here that early, when he’s working. Scarlett enjoyed a bedtime story with Daddy, rather than me. She prefers it when he does it. Day 2 of No Dummy went ok. When she went to bed I cooked us dinner then I had a quick bath. We watched Prison Break season 1 episodes 1-4. We said we’d watch the entire series from beginning to end as I haven’t seen it in years and can barely remember.
Saturday we got up at 8ish. We had breakfast then we watched A Little Mermaid. Well some of it. We put her down for a nap. I did some washing. When she was up we went into town for lunch then I bought a present for Scarlett’s Nursery friend. His party was at 3pm so I had to wrap it in the car outside. The party wasn’t that bad just very hectic. Lots of kids everywhere. Brett got forced into following her into the jungle gym. She wouldn’t go without him haha at 4:30 the kids had some dinner then at 5 we left. It was good seeing her with her little friends. After the party we went to Morrison’s so I could do a small shop then we headed home. Scarlett had a bath then she went to bed. I cooked us pizza and garlic bread then we settled down to watch more Prison Break.
Sunday I woke up at 8ish and heard Scarlett moving. She didn’t call out so I stayed in bed and must’ve fell asleep because when I heard her again it was quarter to 10. Result! We got up and had breakfast. We played and watched TV. At 12:30 we walked to my nan’s house for dinner. We stayed till 3ish then went home to chill. Brett left mine at 4:30 to get a lift to the train station. Me and Scarlett had cheese on toast then we had a bath. Mom popped in for tea then Scarlett went to bed at 8:30. Mom left just before 9. I settled down to watch a new series I’ve started. It’s called Shadow Hunters: The Mortal Instruments. It’s been a movie, which I’ve seen. And I read the books as well. It’s brill.
Monday (today) I woke up just before 7. Started making my lunch and Scarlett woke up crying. She had a bad dream. We got dressed then I did breakfast.
She’s so naughty at the moment. She doesn’t listen. She pushes and taps you (mild slapping). She says No all the time. She’s defiant and stubborn. I think she’s hit the Terrible Twos. She’s been like it a few weeks and I’m already at the end of my tether. She just pushes and pushes. Nothings working. I’ve tried the softly approach but all I seem to do lately is shout at her to get her attention because she just does not listen. I cried with frustration earlier and it did stop her in her tracks and she calmed down a little so we could chat. I’m not sure she listened or took in what I said. I mean she is only 2. But it was worth a try.
She went to bed at 7:30 but was still awake till almost 9! I watched the soaps then Criminal Minds. Tried to watch Blindspot but my TalkTalk box was playing up so I had to turn it off and reset. I lost my recording of Blindspot. So I set it up to record later on and I climbed into bed.
I’ve got neck ache and a headache. I’m on so I’m exhausted with menstural fatigue.
They named the new price. Louis Arthur Charles, pronounced as Loo-wee. How exciting!
