Yesterday wasn’t that bad of a day. Had lots to do at work and the day flew by. I got an email from the job interview I went for. They want to do a second interview but can’t confirm a date yet. I’m away next week so hopefully it happens before then. Would like it out the way before I am on annual leave as it’ll give them a week to decide whether the job is mine.
I said in my last post that Scarlett’s hit the terrible twos:
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.
Yesterday we had a better evening and we sat down and had another chat. I asked her some questions to gauge her understanding/comprehension. I told her she needs to listen to what I/Nursery/Nanny/Daddy tell her. She has to speak more. If she isn’t happy or wants something she needs to speak up. She needs to stop jumping on the sofa, her bed or anything else like a chair as it’s dangerous. I told her if she gets a toy out she needs to put it back or ask for help in putting it back. Same with books. I am going to get her to help tidy up the front room tonight. Her toys and books are everywhere.
Today I woke up in a pool of blood. I stupidly thought my period was calming down so I only wore a pad overnight. I hate tampons. They are uncomfortable. So I try to avoid them. But I got caught out massively and had to leave my soaking PJ bottoms and pants in a bowl of cold water [and vanish] this morning when I headed out to work.
I still can’t believe I live in my own place. I mean we’ve lived there for nearly 7 weeks now. I’ve paid 2 lots of rent already plus 1 month of utility bills. So far, so good. It’s scary though. Knowing I have to pay all these things as well as Nursery fees, my phone bill, my iPad bill, Netflix [because I can’t live without it. Evenings are spent at home because the toddler is in bed]. Amazon Prime [I opted for monthly rather than £80 lump sum each year]. God what else do I pay for? Oh I pay money off my credit card, I put money in Scarlett’s account and I pay off my studio account. My brother’s bed came from my studio account so I pay the fees each month and he and his girlfriend are giving me money each month.
Tomorrow I have a half day at work as Scarlett has her 2 year Health Visit review. It’s like 90 minutes long. Also, I’ve lost her Red Book. Her RED BOOK. How? I can’t blame the move because it’s been lost months…
Once I am done Friday I am then off for 9 consecutive days. 2 weekends, 1 bank holiday and 4 days holiday. I can’t wait. Poole here we come!
