Moving Day is T-Minus 2 Days

Monday I woke up at 7:15 instead of 6:30. Not a great start to my day however I did actually manage to arrive at work on time. Scarlett was miserable when I got in the car at 5pm. She was just so whingy so she went to bed dead on 7pm. I had some dinner and mom and I watched some TV. I came up to bed later and folded up some of Scarlett’s clothes and packed them in a box. I have lots more to throw in so I’ve left the box open for now.

Tuesday I got to work on time. It was a busy morning but a slow afternoon. I hate that. But I was up-to-date with everything and all my emails were filed so that’s good. Scarlett was a bit happier but she’s still a bit grumpy. Her nose is runny and she coughed a bit in the night.

Today [Wednesday] Mom is training at work so she’s out all day and my Grandad will look after Scarlett when my Nan goes to work at 5 if my mom isn’t back to pick her up. She says she will pick her up ASAP then come home. It may be before my her friend drives me home. She works in my company, in a different department and she finishes at 5:30 so on Wednesday’s she drives me home. I stay in my office till 5:30. So today she is taking me home. I finished book 7 of the DI Dixon series. Number 8 comes out in May so I have pre-ordered this. I read another book and now onto book 9 of the year. Not bad for only being in the 3rd month of the year.

16 years today since my uncle passed away. He was only 20 when he committed suicide. I try not to talk in too much depth about my family. For their privacy, respecting that they won’t want their lives all over the internet so I don’t think I’ve ever mentioned him before. Maybe I have. He was very troubled, drugs and running away from home as a teenager. He had mental health problems and eventually it lead him to jumping in front of a train, March 21st 2002. He may be gone but he’s certainly not forgotten. We shall visit his grave tomorrow [during lunch] and I always say Hi.



It’s bloody snowing again!

Friday Scarlett and I got home and I put her in the bath. Then once she was dressed we wrapped up and walked to my nans house. My grandparents were having a takeaway. I hadn’t eaten so I left Scarlett with my Nan and hopped in the car with my Grandad to pick the food up. We ate at 7:30ish then Ernie and Debbie turned up like usual for a cup of tea. My Nan dropped us home at 10ish. Scarlett had her milk and was in bed by 10:30. I watched some TV then climbed into bed.

Saturday I set an alarm so we wouldn’t lay in too much otherwise it throws our weekend early rise routine out of the window. I turned it off and we woke up at almost 10. We had breakfast, we shared some porridge. My mom’s friend came round at 12ish. Scarlett was napping. When she woke up we went to Big Yellow Storage to pick up my boxes then we went to Sainsbury’s so I could get some food for Work next week. One of my brother’s friends had helped himself to my fucking salami. I went to have some in my wrap for lunch before we went out and there was no salami. Pisstake!

After the shops we swung by my nans house for a cuppa. She had said she was finally getting her kitchen redone so to avoid coming round as it’ll be hectic. No one listened as there was 14 of us at one point. We didn’t stay too long. We left at 5ish. Scarlett had some dinner at 6ish then we went up and got in the bath. She went to bed at 8. Mom and I sorted dinner. We had pizza and I made some cheesy garlic bread. We watched The Disappearance episode from this week then we put on a film on Netflix. We watched No Good Deed.

I was up till late talking to Brett. Which is fine as I knew Scarlett would lay in.

Today she woke up at 8:30. We got out of bed at 9. We had toast and she had some fruit. We started watching The BFG then mom got up and said she was walking round my nans as my Grandad was due to pick my cousin up and needed her as he wasn’t sure where he was going. So we got dressed and accompanied her. It’s very cold due to the bastard snow we had yesterday. It snowed all day and only stopped in the night. We’ve had 2 inches. However it’s not staying and a lot of it’s melting already.

We walked home and I put Scarlett down for a nap. She’s still asleep now. Mom is cooking dinner and I’ve just finished boxing up all my DVDs and some of my books. I’ve hit my Fitbit target just from throwing all my DVDs on my bed and sorting them into boxes. I must have about 200+ DVDs.

5 days till moving day! Excited but also anxious over how much stuff I’ve actually got to box/bag up to move!


Moving Day in 1 week!

Wednesday I posted before I learned that Stephen Hawking had passed away. He was a truly amazing and inspiring man. I must admit, I didn’t know a lot about him for a lot of my life. But I was aware he suffered from Motor Neurone Disease after being diagnosed with it when he was just 21. After watching the film about his life, “The Theory of Everything” I understood more about him, his condition and what he had achieved. He was one of the most brilliant minds and it will be a sad loss to our world. But he made it to 76 years of age, which considering he was given only 2 years to live in 1963. He made it to 2018. “So remember, look at the stars and not at your feet.”

Thursday was long. I was full on bleeding now. My period is not due for another 10 days so it’s taken me by surprise. Also, I hate periods. I hate that women have to have them. I mean, I went through the agony of having the coil placed so it would stop getting the bastards. Did it work? Did it fuck! I started watching iZombie as season 4 is now on Netflix. I didn’t want to binge though so I went up to bed at 9:30 and finished reading my book. I’ve read 7 books in the last 2 weeks from this DI Dixon series. I am itching for number 8 but it’s not out till May so have pre-ordered and will have to wait. I went to bed at 11:30.

Friday [today] I woke up to even more blood, if that’s even possible! I swear I will probably pass out at some point. I mean I have been knackered all week as it is so this won’t help. This weekend we [me and Mom] are going to blitz my room of junk, old clothes and god know’s what else. Then we’ll do the same to Scarlett’s room. All in preparation of the move next week. I got the email to confirm the deposit has gone through and what I need to do next week. I have to go to the Aldershot office to sign the tenancy agreement then I can check-in the property at 10. I am so excited! But also anxious of the actual move. All my possessions seem to be all over my house. Which makes sense as I’ve accumulated 23 years worth of crap in that house. Wish us luck!


It’s finally stopped snowing!

Yesterday it was snowing when we left my Nan’s house just after 5ish. It finally stopped at like 6:30. Everywhere was covered in snow still. I was pleased it had stopped. As much as it’s pretty to look at, it’s not practical!

Scarlett went to bed at 8ish. We had some dinner. We had sausage and mash. We were meant to have schnitzels but mom forgot to check we had breadcrumbs so she had to put them in the fridge and do sausages instead.

I was wide awake all night watching some TV. I couldn’t sleep. I think it was the coke I drank. I fell asleep about 6am and woke up at 9ish.

Today Scarlett woke about 9ish. She was singing so I left her till 9:30 then I took her downstairs. We had some breakfast then mom watched her whilst I showered. We got dressed then we went to my Nan’s house. She was cooking pies for everyone to take home. At 2ish I did Scarlett and everyone else some lunch then I put her down for a nap at 3:15. She slept till 5:30 then we walked home. She walked pretty much the whole way except for 2 minutes between one end of the park and the other, near the bridge. Which is fine. She did so well!!!

She had her schnitzel before we did as I wanted her in bed. She ate, had a bath then went to bed at 8. We ate then mom got ready for work. She left and so did her boyfriend. He headed home. I watched the latest episode of Requiem. Not entirely sure what’s even happening on it now. It’s confusing and weird!

I headed up to bed at 10 (half hour ago). Was going to watch a film but I’ve had a headache ALL DAMN DAY. So I’ll read instead and get an early night. I’m quite tired. We’ve had rain today, not snow. So a lot of the snow is gone and it’s much more drivable. At this rate I’ll 100% be back in the office Monday.


P.s. 20 days till MOVING DAY!!!

The beast from the east

I think someone proper pissed Elsa off. We did walk to my nan’s as planned. It didn’t take that long but it was FREEZING!!!! We had some lunch then we played together. She did her puzzles. We did some colouring. My mom came round when she got up (she’d worked the night before). We stayed for dinner. I didn’t have much as I didn’t fancy toad in the hole. I helped wash the dishes then we headed home. Between us we managed even though it was still snowing and windy AF!

Scarlett had a bath at 7ish then we watched Emmerdale. I put her to bed when it was finished then mom and I watched the second episode. She went up for a bath and then I did us some cheese on toast. We watched a film at 9:30 before heading up to bed.

The Nursery emailed me and said they’d made the decision to close the nursery for Friday.

Today we didn’t wake up till 8:30. I did Scarlett some breakfast then we got dressed and headed into town with mom. We walked to the bus stop. We ended up not waiting that long for the bus. In town we went to Sainsbury’s then we stopped at the cafe for a milkshake. My nan finished work just before 12 and was headed home on the bus so she met us and we travelled back to her house together.

We had some lunch and a cup of tea. It wasn’t snowing at this point. It hadn’t snowed since yesterday night. At 12:45 it started snowing again!!!!! My brother and his girlfriend walked round. They left with my mom at 3ish just after I put Scarlett down for a nap.

I’m currently sat at my nans table watching the snow out of the window. I’ve done some work today and kept up with emails etc.

When it hits 5pm I’ll wake up Scarlett and we’ll head home. It’s still snowing. That’s 4 hours now!!!


Corfu, here we come

Saturday we had a lay in. Scarlett woke up at 8ish. I took her down and we had breakfast. We watched Gnomeo and Juliet then I put her up for a nap. Whilst she was asleep I read more of my book. I literally cannot put it down. I was on book number 4. when she woke up we got dressed and went to my Nan’s for some lunch. After we ate, we left her there to play so we could go shopping. I picked up a new TV for my new place. 32 inch HD Smart TV. It was only £210. Bargain! Then we did some food shopping. We got Scarlett a water bottle that is the same as mine, just a different colour as she is always drinking out of mine. And my throat has been sore for like 8 weeks so it’s not ideal for her to share my drinks, germs. We dropped our shopping home then we walked back to my nan’s. Scarlett had some dinner there then we headed home. I bathed her and put her to bed. We had our dinner. We had these pizzas from Sainbury’s that were “Pizza Express” ones. And some doughballs. Lush!

Sunday she woke up at 8am again. We watched Curious George the movie whilst eating breakfast. I put her up for a nap again and then climbed into bed to read my book. I finished book 4 and started reading book 5. We walked to my Nan’s for Sunday roast. We stayed there till the early evening then we headed home. Scarlett was tired when we got in so she was bit whingy. We got in the car and drove to Fleet to pick up the coffee. It’s just as the pictures showed. No scratches etc. I tried calling Brett before she went to bed but I hadn’t heard from him since Saturday night. He had been at a house party with his pals and I assumed he was asleep at his friends. But usually he pops up, hungover, by like 3/4pm. This was 7pm I tried calling him. My Whatsapp messages were only coming up with 1 tick. Which meant his phone was either off or had no signal. I was annoying because he would be pissed at me if I ignored him for 24 hours. So I put Scarlett to bed then chilled out. Finished doing my washing. I read my book in bed then went to bed.

Monday I woke up with my throat being worse than it had been in days. Awesome. It was snowing. It didn’t really settle but it was snowing on/off all day.

Still no word from Brett. Which I found unusual so I messaged his mom later on and asked if he had come home. She said no and she said she was sending his Dad round after work to see if he was at his pals house. Turned out he was. So he came home when I had finished work then he called to say Hi. He is such a knob. Fancy going AWOL for 2 days then being all “hey”. If I had done that to him, he’d have gone mental at me.

He spoke to Scarlett on FaceTime and she wasn’t even bothered. She just carried on playing. I put her to bed at 7ish then we ate dinner. Mom had cooked whilst I made tea. We watched TV then she went to work. I watched new Criminal Minds and Blindspot then I read some more of my book in bed before I went to sleep.

Today I didn’t wanna get up. It was so cold. Must’ve been minus 3 when we got up. Scarlett’s GroEgg in her room was blue meaning it was too cold. Yet when I pulled her from under her duvet she was toasty warm. She had toast and I had porridge then we went out separate ways.

Sunday we had sat with my mom’s boyfriend and looked at holidays. My nan is in Spain in September and as she does the nursery run, plus has Scarlett 3 afternoons a week, I had to book the time off. Or mom had to. Either way, one of us had to. So we agreed to both book 2 weeks off and we’d go away. So we settled on the Alkion Hotel in Corfu [check it out]. It worked out as £276 per person but that is if we split it 4 ways to include Scarlett. Mom said to just split it between us 3 adults so it’s £368 per person for 7 nights, half board. I am very excited now we’ve actually booked. We paid the deposit then the next instalment is due the end of next month.

Corfu here we come! Only 210 days to go LOL


P.S. Only 24 days till MOVING DAY!!!!

Waiting to hear from the estate agent

Thursday I viewed both properties. The first one, the one in Anglesey Avenue, was brilliant. I liked it immediately. The second one was alright but not a fave. I asked if I could put myself forward for the first one. I signed the forms and that was it. I went back to work.

I was called by the agent who explained that as there was 2 offers it had been down to the landlord to make a choice. He had been unable and wanted to meet each prospective tenant. So I agreed to meet him at 5:30 Friday at the estate agents office. Not ideal as I get the train to Brett’s at 5:15 so we’d be a bit later than usual.

I watched Death in Paradise then I packed our stuff for the weekend at Brett’s house.

Friday I went to work like normal. Was a slow day. I felt really drained and it seemed to drag. I met my mom for lunch. We went to Poppins in town. At 5 she picked me up from work and we drove to Bridges office in Frimley. We were early so we sat inside waiting. Scarlett did a poo so mom took her back to the car to sort her. The landlord turned up and we went into a meeting room to have a chat. He seems very nice and is a seasoned landlord so he knows what he’s doing. He asked me things my age, Scarlett’s age, do I work, where do I work, where I’m from, where I live and how long for, any pets, what do I want from life, long term goals, what I thought of the property etc. We parted ways at 6 and thankfully we got on the 6:15 train and were at Hackbridge for 7:45. We grabbed McDonald’s on our way from the station. Scarlett went to bed at 10ish.

Saturday she woke up at 7ish. I got up with her. Did her some toast and a cup of tea. I dressed her and she went shopping at 10 with Brett’s mom. I used my free time to get dressed and chill out. Brett was up by then. We discussed the cinema. When they got back from shopping we walked down the road to Asda. We had lunch then we wandered around. I bought myself some new bras and knickers as well as a new top plus I got Scarlett a new book, new sandals for summer and socks.

We walked back home. Scarlett fell asleep on the walk home so we left her in the stroller in the hallway. I was shattered so I laid on Brett’s bed then fell asleep for like 45 minutes. He woke me up throwing my slipper at me. Not sure why he has to be such a knob. I was clearly tired as I never fall asleep in the day and he woke up just to tell me I was snoring. Twat!

When she was up we played then at 7 I cooked us some dinner. Brett had a bad head so he’d gone to lay down. The meds kicked in and he was ok just as I dished up dinner so we ate together. She had her yoghurt for pudding. Brett got in the bath and then we got ready to head out. We got to the cinema at 8:35. As usual we were late because we were waiting for Brett. Luckily films don’t start for 20 minutes. We queued up to get tickets. Usually we do this online but I have a vue gift card as a Christmas present which you have to activate at the cinema. So we got tickets and drinks then went to find our seats. We watched Den of Thieves. It was actually quite good. It finished at 11:15 and we waited to be picked up.I was tired as I’d been in the cinema without my glasses so my eyes felt strained. I laid in bed and waited for Brett to go to sleep. I can block out his snoring but he can’t mine, so I have to wait for him to fuck off to sleep lol

Sunday (today) Scarlett woke up at 7 again. I took her into the lounge for some breakfast. She ate whilst we watched a film. I put on Moana. It’s actually a really lovely film and she watched about 60-70% of it. We went in at 9:30 to wake Brett up. He never wants to get up. And Scarlett whacking him in the balls by accident didn’t help. We left him to it and about 15 minutes later he came out of the bedroom. We watched the Winter Olympics. Scarlett played and followed Scott around. The dog tried to sit on Scott’s lap and when Scarlett noticed she got very annoyed. She said “no buster, move. My Scott”. It was very funny.

We didn’t stay for dinner today. I wanted to get home. So we had sandwiches at 1pm then we left at 2:30pm to catch the 2:53 train. As usual we were late leaving. We got there and the lift wasn’t working so Brett carried everything up the stairs. Then I went to use the platform lift and it was taking too long that the train pulled up so I stood at the top of the stairs with the stroller and my weekend bag trying to figure it out. A guy offered to help so between us we managed and we ran for the train. We made it!

We got off at Clapham junction 6 minutes later then after a 15 minute wait, we got back on a train for Home. At 4pm we arrived and my nan picked us up. We went back to hers instead of Home as Scarlett wanted to see Grandad, and Marley. We had a cup of tea then we walked home at 5:30pm.

We had soup and bread for dinner. She loves soup. She actually spooned some of my soup into her bowl. Greedy! She had a yoghurt after then I took her up for a bath. I ended up in the bath with her. I washed my hair under the shower then we got out. At 7:30 I made her bottle then we settled to watch some Dancing on Ice. She loves it. She watches so intently then when they finish she sits up properly and claps. It’s the cutest thing. I took her up to bed at 8:15 and she went straight to sleep. I watched the first episode of Requiem. Very odd. Not sure my mom would cope watching it alone, she’s a wimp. I went up to bed at 10:30. I’m just laid here now. May read a bit of my book (first book of 2018) then go to sleep.

It’s shrove Tuesday this week (pancakes) then Valentine’s Day Wednesday. Brett and I are spending a night away Saturday. Should be fun. We’re going to watch 50 shades freed.
