Thursday I had a half day at work. So I left just after 12 and headed home. My tumble dryer had been delivered and I was waiting for the repair guy to come look at my dodgy bathroom tap. He turned up at 12:30. He fixed the tap and said he’d have to come back another time to install a pump for the shower as it’s gravity fed and the water has no “push”, hence why the shower has no water coming out.
I waited all afternoon for the talktalk internet guy to come out and install everything. He didn’t show. At 6:15 I went on the online chat to ask why he wasn’t here and they told me that engineers don’t come to your property. Apparently they set it up online from some exchange thing and then you self install the box. Right ok. That’s a load of shit because the emails I got and the 3 phone calls I received “to check I was still okay for the engineer to visit my property” made no inference to no one actually coming. As a matter of fact, the wording used made it seem crystal clear that they were coming to my flat to install. So you can imagine I was furious!
So I set up my internet (WiFi) but the internet/phone line is in the Hall way whereas my talktalk TV box is next to the TV and you can’t run the TV box without being connected via the Ethernet cable to the WiFi. So I asked my mom’s friend to pop round to look. Her and her partner said I’d need a 30 meter cable to bring the WiFi and landline back into the front room so I can plug the TV box into the router to use the internet. Otherwise I can’t use my talktalk box and it’s useless having it. So they ordered 1 for me and said they’ll come sort it over the weekend.
Friday we got up and had breakfast. I put her down for a nap. My dad was visiting. He turned up. Once Scarlett was up we went out for lunch. It was a good meal and after we ate we went to my nans for a cuppa. My dad left after he drank his tea. We stayed at my Nan’s till 9 then my grandad dropped us home.
Saturday we got up and had breakfast. We had a bath then we curled up and watched a film on Netflix. My mom and her boyfriend came round for a cuppa just as I cooked lunch. Scarlett and I had chicken and chips then we went to my nan’s. We came home later and I cooked us some tea. We had pizza and garlic bread.
I’ve been watching Altered Carbon on Netflix. It’s mad weird but I kind of like it.
Today we got up at 8:30. We got dressed then headed out the door to wait for the bus. We got to town and had breakfast. Scarlett sat in a proper chair rather than a high chair and she looked so grown up.
We ate then we got our tickets at the cinema for Peter Rabbit the movie. She did so incredibly well. She sat for 55 minutes then I let her wander up and down the stairs next to our seats. She did so well though, I’m beyond proud. She’s only just 2, bless her!
After the cinema we got the bus home and I put her down for a nap. I watched an episode of Altered Carbon but I was tired (no idea why) so I turned it off when it was done and climbed into bed at 2. I expected Scarlett to wake up soon but I must’ve fell asleep quickly as I woke up at 4 because I could hear her singing. I went into see her and she’d tipped her water all over her cot. Her sheet, duvet and pillow was soaking. So I stuck it all on the radiator and re-dressed her as her clothes were soaked too.
We watched some teletubbies and I asked my mom if she wanted to go out for dinner. She said yeah so she picked us up at 5:30 and we went to the harvester. We ate and had a good time just us 3. Again, Scarlett was so good.
We got home at almost 8. I bathed her and did her milk. She went to bed at 8:45. She went to sleep quite quickly. I caught up on the last episode of The Disappearance and now I’m going to watch Altered Carbon.
Day off tomorrow. Going to spend it at home. Will probably watch a film together and play with her toys. She likes this Farmyard Bingo game someone bought her for her birthday. We match the pictures and she tells me what the animals are in each one.
I feel like I’m the only person who didn’t do an Easter Egg hunt, didn’t buy any bunny decorations or make any sort of big deal about it. This is mostly in part because I don’t wish to be a hypocrite. I’m not religious and it’s suppose to be a religious thing. People have forgotten that it’s not about chocolate. I’ve never been in to easter and I don’t want Scarlett in the habit of searching dirt once a year for candy from a strange creature. Hardly kosher lol
