Almost New Year’s Eve!

Wednesday she woke up at almost 9. So that was a good lay in. We had breakfast then headed to my nans for presents swapping. I didn’t actually eat breakfast as I had a bellyache.

My grandparents got Scarlett a pram and a new baby doll. A few clothes. A Harrod’s bear for 2017. Some chocolates. I got slippers, socks, a Harry Potter book about the film wands and some dove stuff. We had a cup of tea then we headed home. We finally opened all of our secret santa gifts, gifts from various family as well as stuff to and from each other. Scarlett got my a lovely bracelet with a locket charm that I can put 2 photos in.

My brother proposed to his girlfriend. We all knew about it (except her). She was crying. She said yes!

Scarlett played with her new kitchen set then I took her up for a nap. She wouldn’t settle on her own as she’s not feeling 100% so we laid down together in my bed. I think we got about an hour to so. We woke up just in time for dinner.

She didn’t eat much. Which isn’t like her. We did more playing then bath time. Her godmother came round with a present for her. She’d gotten her a trampoline. She and my mom helped put it together. My mom’s boyfriend chimes in with some help too. I’m just about able to put together a wooden bookcase that I got Scarlett. Even that was a bit tricky lol

It was up and Scarlett had a quick bounce then mom took her up to bed.

We caught up with Emmerdale then we watched some other bits on tele before heading to bed.

Thursday she gave me an epic lay in. She didn’t wake up till almost 9:30am. She’s going to hate me next week when I have to wake her to 7am lol

I gave her a bottle then I dressed her as we were going for breakfast at 10ish. We went to the harvester with my mom and her boyfriend. Scarlett ate 2 pancakes, some sausage and bacon then some yogurt. She also trialled using her new open top cup in public. So far we’ve only used it at home. She did really well and hardly spilt her water. After breakfast we popped into my nans to say Hi and have a cup of tea.

We got home at lunch and I put Scarlett down for a nap. She slept for almost 2 hours. I had to wake her up at 3 so we could go shopping. I needed to stock up on nappies and wipes etc as I know I will get to mid-January and find myself skint and in need of this stuff. We came back after shopping and chilled out. She bounced on her trampoline whilst I cooked dinner. I cooked chicken and chorizo pasta with cheese topped garlic bread. We ate then she had her bath. She’s been very grumpy for the last week. She perked up after her bottle. She played really nicely (and sang) for about an hour. I took her up to bed at 8. I’ve heard her coughing a lot since I’ve been in bed watching a film. The monitor keeps lighting up.

I set up my new lamp. I asked for a lamp for Christmas from my brother and his partner. I got a set of 2. I bought some light bulbs today and they fit so I now have a lamp next to my bed.

Friday she didn’t wake until 9:30. What a lay-in. Problem is, when I’m back at work I’ll be getting up at 7 so these lay-ins are not doing me any good in the long run lol so I’ll be waking her up in preparation for returning to work.

We went to my nan’s house as I feel like I haven’t really seen her over the festive period. We had a few cups of tea and Scarlett showed off her aqua doodle mat.

We picked Natalia (brother’s girlfriend) up from the station then we went home. I cooked me and Scarlett some dinner. It was later than usual as I had gone upstairs to put her new lamp in her room and put her washing away. She went to bed at 8ish. My mom took her up so I could sort my washing out.

My mom went to work and my brother and his girlfriend had fell asleep so I went upstairs to finish watching the Intern. Then I put on beauty and the beast. The new version. My mom said that I use to re-watch the original over and over when I was like 2/3. But I legit don’t even remember ever watching it. I couldn’t even tell you the plot except for Belle was a bookworm and the Prince was a cursed Beast. Anyways, I watched it and it wasn’t bad. Emma Watson did quite well as Belle. I had no idea she could sing but I suppose in Harry Potter she has no need to sing.

Scarlett woke up twice for cuddles. She’s really not herself at the moment. I may need to call for an out of hours appointment.

I went to sleep about 2:30am. My eyes are itchy again even tho I’ve been taking my antihistamines. It’s because I’m not at work. My routine is disrupted and I’m getting more sleep than usual so my eyes are suffering lol weird right!

Today Scarlett didn’t wake up until almost 10am. You can tell she’s not herself. I tried to call my Doctors but they’re shut as it’s a Saturday even tho they’re suppose to run a Saturday AM clinic every other weekend (including this weekend as per their website). So I tried 111 but after spending 30+ on hold I gave up. Thankfully Scarlett isn’t “that bad” so we’ll wait till the surgery is open Tuesday.

We watched the rest of Rise of the Guardians then more teletubbies. She had her bottle then I did her some breakfast. She had a banana and some yogurt. I put her up for a nap at 11:30. I fell asleep on my bed and woke up at 2ish. Oops! We got dressed then headed out to visit our Granny in the old folks home. We was there for over an hour. Scarlett had some crisps and water in a cup.

We headed home and I ordered dinner for us. She had chicken and chips then I took her up for a bath. We FaceTimed Brett for bath time. He likes it because it makes him feel like he’s part of it. I did her bottle then she said night to everyone and I took her up to bed at 7:15. I climbed into bed to catch up with season 4 of Elementary.

It’s New Year’s Eve tomorrow. I can’t believe we are so close to 2017 being done. I’m so ready for it to be over. I want to start a fresh. New year, new wishes.



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.


Christmas Day 2017

It’s Christmas!!! Merry Christmas from my house to yours.Scarlett woke at 7 but settled so I left her. She eventually got up properly at 8. I gave her a bottle then we opened some presents. Brett gave her breakfast at 10ish. She played with her toys then at 11:30 we put her down for a nap. She slept till almost 2. She met Brett’s Nan for the first time. She wasn’t sure about her and went all shy lol

We had a lovely roast turkey dinner and then we relaxed before opening more presents. She got some really bath toys and some other bits. She was thoroughly spoiled. Me too. We had supper (turkey sandwiches) then I took her up for a bath at 7ish. Brett tried to put her to bed at 8. She wouldn’t have it. She cried for ages and was really hot so we got her up and gave her some calpol then tried again at 9. She refused point blank. We both climbed into Brett’s bed and laid in the dark with her for a solid half hour. Nope lol I ended up chucking her back in her cot and we just laid in silence ignoring her. She settled after 10 minutes. Brett fell asleep waiting for her to settle. I had a bad head so I crept out to get some tablets then I stuck Emmerdale on my iPad, with headphones. So I could catch up then go to bed myself.

We’ve had a lovely, relaxed Christmas Day. Scarlett has been so good except when she accidentally dropped a glass candle that Brett’s mom had got for Christmas. She was putting it down and it slipped from her hand. It was just an accident. She looked at me like she was going to be told off but these things happen. His mom was more worried about the glass so we had to keep the dog out until it was cleared up.

We’re going home tomorrow. Mom is picking us up in the early afternoon.


Christmas Eve 2017

Friday was my last day at work. I worked really hard to finish everything I could before I left at 1pm. My mom picked me up at 1 and we went to my Nan’s for lunch. We left there to go to Costco as I needed to pick up a few items. We grabbed what I needed and I picked 2 items for my mom to wrap up for me as she had no idea what to get me. After Costco we dropped my Nan back home then mom and I went to Morrison’s so I could get some stocking fillers for Scarlett. We dropped it all home and had a quick cuppa then we headed back out to pick Brett up from the station. Then we went to pick up Scarlett. She was so happy to see him there. She ran over and gave him a big hug. She looked at me like I was shady though. As I NEVER pick her up. Neither does he. But apparently I’m the one she was confused about lol

We got home and she played. We opened our gifts from him. He opened ours. He took her up for a bath then he put her to bed. She didn’t go to sleep straight away. We could hear her singing to herself an hour later.

We ordered Pizzahut then we climbed into bed and watched a film. I made him watch Burlesque. He enjoyed it surprisingly.

Saturday Scarlett woke up at 9am which was a lovely lay in. I left her in my bed with Brett whilst I made her bottle. She drank it then we went downstairs. I did her some breakfast then she played. We watched some Postman Pat. Brett took her up for a nap at 11:15. She didn’t wake until almost 2pm. When she was up we got dressed and went to my nan’s. I made some lunch and she played with her cousins. My uncle was painting his girl’s nails and Scarlett was watching. She seemed really intrigued. When his youngest stood up from the stool, she sat down in her place and put her hands on the table ready. It was adorable. So he painted her nails for her and surprisingly she sat still for him to do it. She then went around showing off her nails. It was just so funny.

We had dinner there and then went home at 6:45. Brett bathed Scarlett and then he went to my nans to pick up his hoodie. He had left it there. I did Scarlett’s bottle whilst he was gone then when he was back I took her up to bed. She was tired.

My mom went to work at 8:45. It was just me and Brett. We were watching a film on TV. I went up for a shower then we had our much needed chat about the future. We’ve decided we want to give our relationship another go. We have things we want from each other and things we should/need to work on. We have wishes for 2018. I have personal goals. So does he. One thing we agree on is less rowing. I mean, who likes to row anyway!

He went up and had a shower. I put NCIS on in bed and we watched some. He fell asleep at 1am. I switched the TV off at 2am and went to sleep myself.

Today it is Christmas Eve! Like for real, Christmas Eve. I heard Scarlett at 8am but she didn’t whinge to get up so I left her and she went back to sleep. So did I. She woke up at 10am. What a babe! She had her bottle in bed with us and we played silly games then we went downstairs. We had some breakfast. She had tea, toast and banana. The usual. She went up for a nap at about half 11. We got into bed with the TV on as it was cold downstairs and we didn’t need to do anything. We could chill. It was nice. We went downstairs at half 12 and I stuck some tv on. I made us lunch at 1ish. Brett went up and woke Scarlett up at 2. She had some lunch. Though she didn’t eat much of it. She opened her Christmas Eve Box. She got a book (‘Twas the night before Christmas), underwater bath lights, a note pad and crayons, a Christmas dvd (Arthur Christmas) and some pyjamas.

Before she’d woken up we had decided that me and her would spend Christmas at his. We hadn’t planned to. I was happy to be at home. But I just sat there thinking about him going home and how we aren’t even celebrating Christmas at ours until the 27th and it just made no sense to stay home. So I packed some bits and picked a few presents for Scarlett to open, and grabbed the items I had bought for his family then we got in the car. My mom dropped us as the station at 4:30. We got on the train and finally got to his area at 5:45.

Scarlett was tired and a bit shy at first. Like usual. But she soon jumped all over Scott and Nanny. She had a bath and then we had some dinner. She didn’t eat much. She played a bit then at 8:45 I did her bottle then at 9 Brett took her to bed. I’m thankful she doesn’t understand Christmas yet. Imagine trying to convince a 3/4 year old that they have to go to bed because santa is coming!

We’re just watching some film on TV and enjoying the fact we haven’t got any presents to wrap etc.

Merry Christmas all …


My iPhone went for a swim

Sunday I left Scarlett in the front room while I did her breakfast. She’d asked for tea, toast and a banana. I hear a noise and went to investigate. She’s there wedged between the tv unit and the tree, which has fallen down. Baubles everywhere. I was like “what happened?” And she went “oh”. I intended to get my haircut in the morning whilst Scarlett went with my grandparents to visit my gran up the old folks home. But I decided I didn’t have the money so I went along to visit her then we went to my nan’s. She cooked dinner. Scarlett went for a nap at 12:45 and woke up at 3:30. She ate her dinner when she got up.

She’s learned to say “Good Girl”. It’s so cute!

She went to bed at 7ish. We had supper and watched some tele. The holiday was on tv at half 10 so mom and I started watching it. We didn’t realise how late it was and we went to bed at like 1am. I think I fell asleep at half past.

Monday was a struggle due to my aforementioned late night. I only need 5/6 hours to survive so I’m not a typical “I need 8 hours at least” person. But bed at 1:30am and alarm at 6:30am just isn’t adequate. I struggled.

We had secret santa at work. I got a doodle pad, a lunch box and a swear box. All good choices!

After work mom did dinner and Scarlett helped us eat, obviously. I did her bath time. She whacked her head when we was going into her room. She cried and then we told the door off for hurting her (obviously) then she was ok. She did her book advent for Day 18. Her book was “The Elves and the Shoemaker”. She went to bed at 7:15. She was tired as Monday is her long day at Nursery.

I watched Emmerdale then waited for Criminal Minds at 9pm then learned it wasn’t on. It must be on a seasonal break in the US. Majorly sucks balls. So I ended up waiting till 10pm for Blindspot then I got into bed at 11ish.

Tuesday was long at work. Had lots to do which is great as it keeps me busy but the day just dragged. After work we went home and Scarlett had her dinner whilst I had a shower. When she’s eaten I took her up for a bath. She had her bottle, we did book advent for Day 19. Her book was “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs”. She went to bed at 7.

I’ve had a card through the day from Royal Mail saying there’s a package at the depot for me. It’s there because it has an outstanding customs charge. It’s come from the US. No idea who it’s from. So I’m really excited to find out. I paid the customs charge online and it’s being re-delivered on Thursday!!!

I had my dinner at 8ish then I caught up on 4 weeks worth of The Gifted. I’ve watched 3 episodes. Got 1 left. It’s getting quite good. I got into bed at 11ish.

Wednesday I woke up a few times in the night with a bad head. Eventually when my alarm went off I knew my head wasn’t going away. I took some tablets and when they didn’t touch my head I knew I couldn’t go to work. So I phoned in to say I’m staying at home today. I dressed Scarlett, did her morning bottle and then my mom took her to be dropped at nursery.

I’m laid in bed, in the dark, reveling at the quietness of the house. Mom brought back breakfast. We ate in the dark then we both went to bed.

I woke up at 12. Mom went to pick up Scarlett from Nursery. We had cuddles then she went down for a nap. I tidied up and had some breakfast then she woke up at quarter to 3. We read her books then I did her dinner. She had pizza. She had a bath. We FaceTime Brett a lot at bath time so he can join in. I usually leave my phone next to the bath, leaning on something. She’s never touched it before. But I left the bathroom for a moment to grab her towel. I come back and my iPhone is swimming (my heart dropped). I fished it out and gave it a good dry/blow in the holes and tbh it seems to be ok. It must’ve been submerged for literally a nanosecond. She went to bed at 7:15ish.

She woke up at 9 crying. She was feverish so I gave her calpol. She then cried for a bottle so I gave her 5oz. She drank it all. She seemed happier. I let her play for 10 minutes. She then did a nasty poo so I changed her. I asked her if she was ready for bed. She said No then she said Yes. So we went up and I put her back to bed at about 10ish. I heard her cry out a few times in the night but she didn’t wake up so I didn’t go in to her. I just looked on the monitor and she was ok.

Today she was miserable when I first got her up. She went to Nursery and I went to work. I finished at 12. I got on the bus at 12:30 and then walked to the hairdressers to book in. It took an hour for me to be seen. I finally got called. They washed, cut and blow dried my hair. Then they straightened it because I mentioned I was going out. I paid and then I walked to Sainsbury’s to be picked up. Scarlett had her new dress on for the party at Nursery. We dropped her off at 3 then we went back to my nans house. I put some makeup on and changed into jeans. At 4:30 we picked her back up. She’d had a blast but still wasn’t keen on santa. Mom dropped me at the restaurant on the lake.

I went in and booked in. They led me to our table. I sat down and ordered a drink and waited for everyone else. We had a blast catching up. I had cheese topped tomato and garlic bread for a starter. Then I had steak and chips. I could not eat anything else after. We stayed for another drink and some of the others had pudding. We settled our bill then my friend dropped me Home. I had a quick shower then I caught up with Emmerdale and now I’m in bed.

My parcel came. I had totally forgotten I’d ordered a “Slay all day” tshirt for the 20 year anniversary of Buffy The Vampire Slayer. It’s massive. But it’s comfy!

It’s my last day at work tomorrow then I have 10 days off. I cannot wait!


Ps. Haven’t done her book advent for yesterday or today. We’ll all 3 tomorrow.

Not how I expected my weekend to go

Friday was a nightmare at work. My temp, who use to give me a lift, said she wasn’t coming back on Monday. One of the managers had upset her and she didn’t want to work in a place where people are rude to each other. She was furious in the afternoon. I half expected her to up and leave there and then. I think she would’ve if she’d had her car but her husband had borrowed it because his was in the garage.

We were due to go to Brett’s house. Normally I check the trains ahead of time but I left it until 3pm. When I looked it said there were delays my end of the tracks until 5-6pm and his end there was a lot of cancelled trains due to an issue at East Croydon. So I thought we could go at 7pm as the was a train at 7 that looked like it was the usual 1 connection, 1 hour 15 minutes route. But when I got in from work, I realised it would be far too cold, far too late and far too dark to be dragging my toddler on the train. So I told Brett that I’d decided not to come due to the reasons above. I anticipated he’d have the hump but what happened was beyond anything I expected. He was utterly vile to me. Basically insulted my parenting skills by trying to say that taking her to watch a 15 minutes fireworks display in a mild November is the same as a 90 minute December journey at 7pm at night on a Friday after being at Nursery all day. And said I must be such a good mom for taking her to see fireworks (in the dark and cold) but not taking her on a train. Also said I traumatised her by taking her to see Santa. Oh and brought up the one time recently when she was walking underneath me when I was carrying something. I didn’t see her, I turned and my knee knocked her over and she hit her head on the doorframe. Like it was an accident. They happen from time to time. I didn’t mean to hurt her and I felt awful when she was upset. I picked her up and gave her a cuddle. That’s what moms do. I frequently pick her up and cuddle her.

Anyway, he was just horrible to me and I realised that I just don’t need or want him in my life (or Scarlett’s) anymore. So I blocked him for some peace then later I messaged him to say I can’t be with him anymore. I don’t love him in the same way as I used to. I’m not coming for Christmas. And please don’t harass me to get me back or try emotional blackmail like you usually do. I then blocked him again. I was up till almost 3am chatting to my bestie. She had a lot of support and advice to give on leaving a shitty relationship.

Saturday he tried to call me at some point in the morning as I had a voicemail. I only listened to a few seconds before deleting it.

Scarlett got up at 9. She had her bottle and we read some of her new books. She asked for breakfast. I asked her what she wanted, cereal or toast? She said toast. I said tea too? She said yeah! She’s so funny. So she had tea, toast and banana. I waited to eat with my mom as she was going to cook breakfast. We ate at 10:30. Scarlett had some sausage then I put her up for a nap at 11:15. I went up and got in bed because I was so cold and I had a headache. I fell asleep and woke up at 1:30. Then Scarlett woke. I dressed her then I finished putting addresses on the presents I needed to send.

Mom drove me to the post office so I could mail everything. I mailed all my gifts except my Australian secret santa. It was going to cost me £88 to send a £30 gift lol so I decided to try a different postal service. We went into town so I could get a refund on the PS4 Pro I bought Brett for Christmas. So I’m now £300 richer. Which is great because I have Scarlett’s 2nd cake smash to pay for in January as well as her birthday party.

After Argos we went to my nan’s. She had a full house. Everyone was there. We stayed for a few cups of tea. Scarlett had lunch when we first got there. We left at 5. I ordered a Chinese whilst we were watching Madagascar. It took over an hour to come. Scarlett was proper hangry. We ate then I took her up for a bath. I ended up bathing with her. We got our and got dressed. I did her bottle then she said goodnight to everyone as my mom was going to work and so was my brother. I took her up at 9:15 for bed. She was flat out within 15 minutes.

I was watching Grimm on Netflix when the bloody door knocked. I knew who it was. No way was I answering. I have nothing to say to him. I thought I’d made myself pretty clear in my message the night before. I ignored the door. But he knocked twice more. The light in our kitchen was on so I knew he’d see me if I darted upstairs to look out the window. I stood in the doorway and he must’ve sense it because I heard him say something about “come on just answer the door”. I ran upstairs to tell my brother girlfriend not to open the door. Not that she would have. It’s late.

I came back down and he spoke to me through the letterbox. Said he wanted to talk so could I at least open the door. I said no. It won’t change anything. I’m done. I can’t do this anymore. He said he wants to try and he’s listening. I said why listen now. You’ve had almost 2 years. We’re not the same as we were. It’s finished. He got a bit angry and slammed the letterbox. I thought he was gone so sat down but he came back and called my name. So I said what? He said so this is it? You want me to go? I said Yes that’s what I’ve been saying. He said he was sorry it got to this point and sorry we couldn’t work it out. He said he hopes I have a good Christmas and I look after Scarlett then he slammed the letterbox and went. Me and my brother’s girlfriend sat in the front room for a while, expecting him to knock again. But he didn’t. We chatted a bit and then I carried on watching Grimm.

I’m in bed now. Going to have a lazy day tomorrow. I just want to relax and have a laugh with my baby girl. She’s all that matters to me.


The Doctor copped a feel

Friday Brett didn’t arrive until almost 1am. Because I had fell asleep when I came home sick from work, I wasn’t tired yet so we watched some tele then went to bed about 3am.

Saturday Scarlett woke up at about 8am. Not too bad considering she went to bed at 9:30. She had her bottle in bed with us. She spoke to Brett but he was half asleep. I took her downstairs. She opened her advent for Days 1 and 2. As well as her first and second days of Book Advent. Her book was Fox’s Socks. Day 2 book was Princess Mirror-Belle and Snow White.

We had porridge for breakfast then I put her down for a nap. We were due to go out at 11. We didn’t leave until 11:30. Oops! We went to Camberley to take Scarlett to see santa. As you can see it went as well as last year!

After Santa we went and grabbed lunch at Wetherspoons. Scarlett had salmon fish cake, mash, peas and some cucumber and peppers as a side. I had a chicken burger and chips. Brett had steak and chips. Food was pretty good. Scarlett ate so much. We hadn’t taken the stroller with us so she was walking a lot but she’s still so little so we also carried her a bit too. Man she’s heavy lol

After lunch we went to Primark as my nan had asked me to get 2 gift vouchers for my cousins for Christmas. I also picked up matching Christmas headbands for me and Scarlett then we got a lift to my nans. We had a cup of tea then at 4 we headed home.

Scarlett had some fruit and a yoghurt for dinner (she ate loads at lunch) then Brett bathed her and then after a bottle and storytime she went to bed at 7. She went straight down like a good girl.

We ordered some dinner and watched Criminal Minds catch-up with my mom. My dinner took ages!! Brett’s came and he’d eaten it long before mine came. We had separate because he wanted pizza and I didn’t.

He has a bath whilst I read my book in bed. We were going to watch a film but I had bellyache so I went to sleep about 11. My grandad’s Birthday is today. He’s 68.

Sunday Scarlett woke at 8:45. That’s some epic sleep she had. She must’ve had almost 14 hours sleep! She had a bottle then she had toast (she asked for it). I had porridge and of course she had to share it when she’d finished hers lol

Scarlett opened Day 3 of Book Advent which was the book Everyone Loves Underpants.

We woke Brett up at 10. I put Scarlett down for a nap at 10:30. We climbed back into bed for cuddles and just relaxed. We woke her up at 12:30 so we could go shopping then to my Nan’s for dinner. I had to stock up on nappies and wipes. We bunged it in my mom’s boot then we went to my nan’s house. We left at 4:30. I stuck Shrek on and Scarlett actually sat with us to watch it for ages. I took her up for bath time and Brett left to get the train home at like 6ish.

She and I read a story. She had her bottle then I put her to bed.

Today she did not want to get up. I don’t blame her, I didn’t want to either! She got dressed, had her bottle whilst I made my lunch then my Nan turned up so I could leave for work. I got to work and set about playing catching up from being sick on Friday. I made an epic dent in my emails and managed to finally load AIR on to the system. I did a mini victory dance because we’ve waited too long to load AIR!!!!

I left work at 3:15 as I had my hospital appointment. We managed to get parked in the middle of the day. That’s so rare! I got seen at 4:10 so only 20 minutes late. The doctor asked me a bunch of questions and then did a check. Said it all seemed normal and sent me on my way. Weird considering my GP said she was sending me for a scan. But nonetheless I’ve been discharged from the hospital so if I have any more issues or am not happy in the new year I’ll go back to my GP.

After the hospital we went to pick Scarlett up. She does a full day at Nursery on Mondays. My mom usually picks her up at 4:30 then me at 5. My nan picked her up so we got her from her house. She was having a yoghurt when we got there. Apparently she had already “helped” Grandad to feed the dog. She loves doing that. Her and Marley are BFFs.

We went home and Scarlett had some fruit as she was “hungry” – she wasn’t she was peckish. She has dinner at Nursery lol we watched some teletubbies and she opened her Day 4 on her advent calendar, as well as her Book Advent. The book was Stories for 3 Year Olds. She went for a bath then she went to bed at 7.

Mom is off tonight so we’re watching tele and having a relaxing evening.
