Happy St. Patrick’s Day. We don’t celebrate it because we aren’t Irish lol Scarlett is inadvertently wearing green today though! We were going to Brett’s so after work my mom dropped us at the train station. Our left at 6pm. Scarlett fell asleep soon after and woke up the other end when Brett’s mom put her in the car for the ride to their house. She was still up when he got in from work. I bathed her and then at 9:30 she went to bed. We kind of had a row. Over something totally silly.
I thought we were okay but it became clear, once he actually got his ass up, that it wasn’t “okay” and I almost went home. We did make up. His mom babysat so we could go for a meal, and the cinema, as previously planned. We watched Kong: Skull Island. We had a nice evening followed by some good clean fun (quiet-ish, we have to share his room with Scarlett whereas at home she has her own room). She did a poo in the bath when his mom bathed her haha kids!
Sunday 19th [today]:
I just felt like crap but nonetheless I was going to get up with her but when she woke Brett got up instead and I had a lovely lay-in. He put her down for a nap at 11ish and climbed in the bed with me. I was awake at this point, checking my phone and we spent 2 hours chatting and stuff. Quietly, but it was nice just cuddling up and relaxing.
Scarlett woke up at 1:30. I gave her a bottle, as she hadn’t had her lunch time bottle and then at 3pm dinner was ready (Sunday lunch). Brett had fell asleep so we left him and Scarlett sat up the table with us on her new portable seat. She loved it.
We got on the tram at 5:15 and got off at Wimbledon. She was fast asleep at this point so it was a chilled 25 minute wait till the train came to take us homewards. She woke up as I got off the train which was handy as she would’ve woke up when she was put in the car seat anyway. We got home and she was excited to see her Nanny. Managed to get her to bed at 8:30-9ish. I had a shower and washed my hair. Now I am in bed. Work tomorrow. I hate Monday’s. I can never get my butt up on a Monday!
Been reading again, finally. I am currently reading a book called Julia gets a life. It is quite good and I haven’t been able to put it down.
Monday night I couldn’t sleep. Probably due to the extra caffeine and the excitement at meeting my date Tuesday.
Scarlett and I got the bus to town in the morning and I enjoyed a lovely McDonald’s breakfast. We had a wander and popped into the tattoo parlour to see my brother. He’s had a tattoo for Scarlett done. It’s brilliant!!! I really want to get mine done soon.
When my “date” got to the train station he called me so I walked to meet him. My brother tagged along lol which was fine.
He was exactly how he is on the phone and video chat etc. We walked back into town from the station whilst chatting etc. I had eaten breakfast and was stuffed so we just wandered. We got the bus to my house and we just chilled. We put a film on whilst Scarlett had a nap. We both liked the film already and knew every word so it was like an unspoken competition who could say the most lines lol I bathed Scarlett at 7:30pm. She had her last feed at 8:30pm then I snuggled her till she was asleep. I put her in the Moses Basket for the night. We stuck a film on. We watched Knocked Up. We love that film it’s so funny. It’s not a great movie to fool around to though because there’s a lot of weird references to pregnancy and some are just not appropriate to sexy time lol we was up all night talking. We didn’t shut up and lay down properly till gone 3am. #58
We hadn’t planned for him I stay. It was last minute. He was going to get the train home at like 8:30pm but ended up staying. My mom said it was fine as long as I was fine with it. Of course I was. He’s a great guy.
Wednesday Scarlett woke up at 6:30am. I fed her then got her back to sleep after she laid just yabbering away for a bit. She went back in the Moses Basket. He had woke up by then. I said about going back to sleep as I was shattered but it didn’t happen… I never can sleep in the day. It’s too light. Scarlett woke back up at 9am so I dressed her then fed her again. We spent the day chilling at home. In the afternoon my mom said she was going to my nan’s house so I said I didn’t fancy it because I was knackered so she took Scarlett with her for an hour. I needed a nap for definite this time lol so I sorted out the washing for my mom then I got in bed. Only managed to “relax” not sleep because of the brightness of the daylight but it was better than nothing.
Mom came back with Scarlett and I had cuddles because I missed her. It was only about an hour but I missed her. She’s never gone out the house without me in her short 11 weeks. I sorted me and my date some dinner then at 7ish my mom dropped him at the station on her way out.
He messaged me when he was on the train and we both agreed we wanted to spend more time together. We just need to figure out when.
It’s his birthday next week. He’ll be 24. So I think I’ll grab him a card but nothing more so it’s not like too weird. If I got him something he would probably be thinking “oh my god she’s a bit keen we’ve only known each other a little bit and she’s buying me shit”. My birthday is in August. If we are still seeing each other then then he can buy me something small and it would be okay because we’d have known each other months by then lol
I bathed Scarlett and then fed her. She didn’t drink much. She doesn’t seem to drink a lot for her age and I do worry still. I may take her back to the baby clinic Friday and explain she’s drinking less now than she did before.
I’m shattered so I’m going to switch my phone off in a second and get some kip.
Holy mother of fucks, my girl is 11 weeks old today. I don’t know why that makes me so surprised. 11 weeks is no more special than any other week. I just feel like she’s no longer “new”. She’s almost 3 whole months. It’s crazy!
So today I met my long time friend Simon. We picked him up from the station as it was raining and I didn’t want to get Scarlett out in the rain. We went into town and had lunch. We had BurgerKing. It was nice meeting him finally and it was great just chatting. I fed Scarlett whilst we were still in BurgerKing. We wandered around for a bit then we went our separate ways.
I got the bus to nan’s house and spent a bit of time there before I ended up having dinner. We had steak pie and mash.
I am meeting a guy tomorrow that I’ve been chatting to on FaceTime and text and calls etc. He’s 23, from London and we get on so well. I hope we get on in real life as well as on the phone lol
Thursday I did go bingo and I won £20. I also won a prize on the raffle. I won a bunch of breakfast food like bacon, eggs, sausages and beans. I don’t eat anything except sausage lol
Friday we had a McDonald’s breakfast as mom wasn’t working. She said she felt sick but figured she just needed to eat. So she did and then we did the food shop. She still felt sick after so she went to bed when we got home and I just chilled with Scarlett.
I have started speaking to a really nice normal guy this week. He’s a year younger but he doesn’t seem it. He’s got his head screwed on and he loves kids. All his friends have children and he says he does want to have a child sometime, before he’s 30. He lives in London but he’s getting the train to my town on Tuesday as he has got the week of work. We are going into the town so we’ll have lunch and a good old chat etc. I’m excited to meet him. We’ve been talking on the phone constantly and that’s not like me. I hate phone calls. We whatsapp all day and snapchat stupid pics lol I know I’m taking a bit of a risk as I’ll have Scarlett with me when we meet in town but it’s public and daylight. Plus my gut tells me he’s a good guy and it’s rarely wrong so I’m going with it. I fancy the pants off him so I’m nervous a bit about the whole thing. The whole dating scene is so crazy and exhausting. I’ll be happy when I’m no longer on it!!
Saturday I went to my nan’s in the afternoon. Ended up having dinner there. I had steak pie and wedges. I love it. I’m addicted to steak pie and ginger cake at the moment. It’s weird because I never had any cravings during pregnancy yet now all I want is those two things.
Sunday I had Sunday roast at my nan’s house. I had roast beef and it was delicious. I stayed there till 6ish then I walked home. Scarlett sat and watched some TV whilst I made an attempt to clear some stuff from my room that’s been sitting there annoying me for weeks. She lasted 10 minutes before she cried. She had pooped, so in her defence that’s fair enough to cry. I ran a bath and we climbed in. Usually when we bath share I’m on my own so I do it all awkwardly but by myself. Mom was still here, she hasn’t left for work, so she got her out and dressed her for bedwhilst I washed my hair etc and got ready for bed.
She had a feed and then she was out like a light. That was at about 8:30pm. I managed to take her upstairs at 9:30pm and put her in the Moses Basket without waking her and that’s where she’s been ever since. As much as I love co-sleeping, it’s healthier for her to sleep alone so I’m hoping she’ll just get on with it. She never had an issue sleeping in it before but I do worry that co-sleeping has changed that.
I’m meeting my friend Simon tomorrow in town. We’ve been friends for 4 years now. Should be a good day. I’m thinking lunch and a wander round the shops. He’ll hate that lol he’s male after all.
Scarlett is currently still in her basket fast asleep (at 2:50am) and I’m finally knackered so I’m going to call it a night.
Well today is Valentine’s Day. Or as I like to call it, “singles day”. This is my third Valentine’s Day as a single girl. I don’t mind. What I do mind is when a guy agrees to take me out for dinner then stands me up. Yes, that is correct ladies and gentlemen, I got stood up. For a date. On Valentine’s Day.
I haven’t heard a word from him since bedtime on last night (Friday). I just think his behaviour is plain rude. If he wasn’t bloody interested then just say so but don’t agree to do something then not do it. It winds me up.
Mom felt bad so she took me up the shops so I could get some alcohol lol later I was hungry because I obviously got stood up for a dinner date so my lovely Nan drove me up the Chinese. She also paid for it too. So I ended up with alcohol, Chinese and lots of tv. Overall my night wasn’t that bad.
I’m currently watching the film Hercules (the new one with the rock in it) in bed.
Well today didn’t start off that great. I put the butter in the pantry and the marmite in the fridge. Then on my way to work I had a nosebleed. Clearly my “lucky penny” pandora charm isn’t feeling very lucky today lol
It is casual Friday’s at work and I was actually in on that fact this week lol last week I didn’t know so I’d turned up to work in my usual attire. What a loser! But not this week :)
That date I talked about the other day: not sure it’s on. I hadn’t heard from the guy for 2 days. Then he suddenly popped back up on whatsapp saying he was sorry he just hadn’t checked his messages. Which is fair enough. But I’m still dubious about whether we will actually go out tomorrow. I have a feeling he’ll stand me up. Apparently that means I’m a pessimist or I’m not trusting. It’s not that at all. I am just very intuitive and I get the feeling he’s not that interested. I don’t know why he’s even talking to me IF he isn’t interested. It’s not like anyone is forcing him to and it’s also not as if he’s getting any dirty photos or chats from me so logically he SHOULD be in to me but I just don’t think he is. I hate guys like that. Time wasters!
I guess I’ll found out tomorrow if he’s going to turn up.
If he doesn’t that’s fine. I can write him off as yet another douche lol there’s a lot of them in the world.
I’m so glad it’s Friday and work is done. I can enjoy a lovely lay in tomorrow before tidying my room up then having a nice hot shower before my “possible date” lol
Still no period. Which is fine but annoying. Wish it would show up and start then it can hurry up and finish lol impatient much? I’m so grouchy atm too.
I’m off to sleep soon. Happy Valentine’s Day Eve lol
Well I’m in my second week of work. I’m still a bit tired although that’s primarily to do with the fact that at night I can’t seem to go asleep before midnight. Which is crazy because at that point I’ve been up 18 hours. Tonight I’m fairly wide awake 11pm. Last night I was actually yawning my head off at 11 because I’d met an old friend (#38) for a late night catchup. Must’ve tired myself out.
Met a friend tonight too. First time we’ve actually met face to face. We’ve been in contact for almost a year but we just never got around to meeting. But tonight we did. He looks just the same as his pictures and he’s quite funny so that was great. Got a nice new hang-out buddy :) (#53)
So that’s two friends in two days. I’m being so sociable haha I also have a “date” on Saturday. Yes I know that is Valentine’s Day. I didn’t plan it that way. A guy asked me if I wanted to go for dinner and I said sure when? And he said Saturday. I reminded him what day it is, assuming he’d say a different day but he said it was fine if I was fine with it but we’d have to book. So if all goes to plan then I am actually going out with a handsome fella on Valentine’s Day. Even if we don’t spark at least I’ll have made a new friend. He said that same. It’ll still be a fun night because he reckons we’ll probably get on just fine anyway. So that’s that.
This is my third Valentine’s Day as a single lady. I don’t mind. V day is just a commercialised con and a huge reminder to those single people that they aren’t loved. I don’t feel that way. My mom loves me lol that’s enough, for now.
50 shades is out in two days. Friday the 13th … I don’t think I’ll watch it till next week. I will have to avoid facebook until I do because you can guarantee everyone else will be posting about it after they’ve seen it lol
AF is due. Hard to track when exactly because it’s so sporadic. Either it’s late now, by a few days (which is normal) or it is still in the time frame to be considered on-time WHEN it does show. God I hate being a female for that reason. Bleeding out my vagina. Why?! Just to irritate the shit out of me for 5-7 days. It’s such an inconvenience and makes me feel totally gross, yucky etc. I swear I shower far more in them 5 days than I do all year haha that’s a joke btw. I’ve very clean. I love getting in the bath, usually with a good book.
I am off. I’m actually sleepy now. Yay it’s almost TGIF. I won’t be left out on causal Friday this week. I shall have my jeans on :)
