Mother’s Day 2018

Friday Brett came down at 9ish. We were at my Nan’s do he got dropped there. He had gotten a card from Scarlett to me for Mother’s Day. I didn’t expect that. He wrote it in the dining room and had her draw on it for me. It was very thoughtful. He also got my a dvd from her too. La la land.

We got home and put Scarlett to bed. We laid in bed chatting for hours. Eventually we went to sleep.

Saturday Scarlett woke up at 8ish. I picked her up from the cot and changed her nappy then I took her into my bedroom to wake up Brett. To his credit, he did get up. We all went downstairs and I made breakfast. We watched Postman Pat the movie then we took Scarlett up for a nap. I had a headache so I laid down on my bed whilst she was asleep. It helped.

When she woke up we all got dressed then my mom took her in the car to town and me and Brett got the bus. We couldn’t fit all of us in the car as my brother and his girlfriend were coming to the shop as well. We met up with them in ASDA. Brett and I primarily went to get my microwave. He agreed he’d buy me one and he’s stuck by that, even post-breakup. I picked a nice little white one and then mom put it in her car.

My mom had gotten me some flowers from Scarlett. Once they’d gone through the checkout she gave them to her to give me.

We took Scarlett and went into town for lunch. She didn’t want to sit in the “baby seat”. She wanted to sit on the chair next to “daddy” to eat her lunch. After we ate we headed to my nan’s. We stayed for a cup of tea and ended up having dinner. I just about managed to eat some but Brett isn’t a huge eater and his lunch had finished him off so we wrapped it up and brought it home.

He packed his stuff up whilst I bathed Scarlett then my nan picked him up and dropped him at the station for 8. I put Scarlett to bed then I caught up with some TV before heading to bed.

Today is Mother’s Day. My mom’s away. She’s at her boyfriends. My Nan is out for dinner so it’s just me and Scarlett. Except it’s never just us in the house. God I can’t wait to move!

She woke up at 8:30. We had porridge then we watched Brave in bed whilst doing puzzles. At 11am I put her down for a nap. She woke up at 1:30. We got dressed and headed to my nan’s. She had said if we wanted some space then we were welcome to go to hers whilst she was out. So we did. I cooked our dinner. We had steak pie and chips. We watched teletubbies, played games, coloured lots. Overall just spent the day together. Which was lovely but I was a bit irked that no one wanted to make it special given that it’s my last Mother’s Day living at my mom’s house. But whatevs!

I caught Scarlett standing on my nans windowsill looking out at the kids playing outside. She wanted to join in. But she’s just too little. Maybe next year.

My grandparents got home and we had a cup of tea. Scarlett helped feed Marley, like usual. She loves being helpful. She knows the routine and doesn’t need much prompting, my clever bean!

My nan dropped us home at 6:30. We got straight in the bath. Scarlett loves it when we share a bath but I don’t do it often as it’s harder work than if I just bath her quick then get her dressed lol we came downstairs to watch some dancing on ice as she loves it. We spoke to Brett then I took her up at 8:15. She cried so I had to go back up for cuddles then she went to sleep. Haven’t heard a peep since!

I started watching a film on my iPad but got distracted then it was too late to watch the rest so I’ll watch it another day.

Work tomorrow. Hope it’s not a stressful day. Got enough stresses in my head with this move!


P.S. 11 days till moving day!!!!


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!!!

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!!!!

A mini rave for a 2 year old

Friday I emailed TurtleTots about swimming lessons as I planned. I am hoping to book her in for Saturday classes same as before. But I want her to have her lesson earlier in the morning. She never wanted to go when her lesson was 12 because she was either tired because she was due to nap, tired and cranky because we had woken her or she was hungry. Either way she was miserable until she actually got there and realised what we were doing.

When I got in from work I hoovered up [Scarlett pretended to hoover with her toy Henry Hoover] then I took her up for a bath. She went to bed at 8ish. We had dinner. We had KFC then I went upstairs.

Saturday Scarlett woke up at 7am. She had lost her dummy. I gave her another one and she went back to sleep. She woke again at 8ish. I heard her singing. As she wasn’t calling for me or crying I left her for a bit. At 8:30 my mom popped her head in and said she was taking her downstairs for breakfast. So I laid in bed a little longer. We got dressed and headed out. I had to pop to town to buy a birthday card for the little boy whose party we were attending. I drew out some money [£10 for his card] and checked how much was in Scarlett’s account. My mom’s friend had put in money for her birthday and wanted me to confirm it had arrived there. It had.

After town we headed to Costco. I didn’t fancy going in as mom was only after some toilet rolls so we stayed in the car, me and Scarlett. We went to my Nan’s for lunch and I threw some make-up at my face – I’ve run out of foundation [which I only discovered when I went to put some on. Luckily I had a different “type” of coverage which worked]. At 2 my grandad dropped us at the party venue. It was like a mini rave. It was pitch black with loud music and disco/strobe lights. There was an indoors bouncy castle. But given how dark it was I didn’t fancy Scarlett hurting herself because some unsuspecting child has collided with her. Sitting up A&E on a Saturday is not fun. So I kept her away from it. But given how dark it was, she wasn’t keen on being there. A few times she wandered away from me chasing a balloon and almost got mowed down by a kid on a bike so she soon stood next to me. She stole a cake when we first got there. She is so funny, she made a beeline for the table of food. Typical Scarlett!!!

We left at 4pm, instead of 4:30pm. We walked across the road to the shop to get sweets and then we got picked up. We stopped at my Nan’s for dinner then we headed home. I got Scarlett in the bath then she went to bed at 8ish.

Sunday she woke up at 10am. How lazy! We had some breakfast together and watched Kung Fu Panda. At half 12 we got dressed and walked to my Nan’s as we were having Sunday roast there. We ate then she played. She followed Macey (my cousin) around. She loves playing with the big kids. We stayed until about 4:30. My aunt had turned up at 3:45. 45 minutes with her lots craziness was enough. Plus Scarlett had not napped all day so we needed to go and chill at home.

We had a cup of tea and we watched the movie Megamind. She actually did watch a lot of it. I took her up for a bath then she went to bed at 7:45.

I jumped into the bath at 9ish then I climbed into bed. I was eating giant buttons the night before and I must’ve dropped one. I was getting ready for bed after my bath and I noticed there was brown crap on my sheet. I genuinely thought it was shit. Then I remembered “I haven’t shit myself so..”. I smelt it (gross I know) and it was chocolate. Had zero clue where it came from. Then I remembered the buttons. But, I didn’t drop any. I ate the motherfuckers. Then I noticed I had chocolate on my foot and as I was searching for more I saw a squished button on the sole of my foot. How an earth I hadn’t felt it, I could not tell you. It was disgusting because visually my brain was yelling “SHIT. ITS SHIT. EWWW”. But my nose was like “mmm chocolate”. I wiped it all off and then sat there laughing to myself. What an idiot!

Today I woke up at 7:10. Basically running late. I got myself dressed the I woke her ladyship up and dressed her. I took her downstairs. She had toast and milk for breakfast. I made my lunch then my mom arrived so I left for work. All she did was chat chat chat in the car. Most of it was her moaning about stuff. Stuff I haven’t done. Stuff that’s my fault. The usual. I was so annoyed when she dropped me.

Work was slow. The office was cold. Heaters were on ALL DAY! We had a conference call at 11. Directors went through all the slides of some presentation thing. A lot of it wasn’t particularly interesting or relevant to me and my role. But some things peaked my interest. Mostly due to them being a tad incorrect. But hey ho.

At 4:50 I noticed my mom’s car outside so I went out to say Hi. I brought Scarlett in the office for the last 5 minutes. She sat on my desk whilst I finished some emails. I fully expect to be told off for having her there but I’ll be fuming if I am as I know for a fact there’s people in the office who’ve brought their child in to the office end of the day many times for various reasons. So 5 minutes wouldn’t hurt anyone.

After work we got home and the carpet in the lounge was soaked. Turns out the radiator has a hole in it and is pissing out water. Ideal! Mom phoned the housing people and they said a guy will come out within 4 hours. We put a bucket under the leak and turned the heating off. I was due to view a property at 5:45, in my road (view here). So at 5:40 we set off down the road with Scarlett. It’s a lovely 1st floor 2 bedroom maisonette. It has a garden, big lounge, decent sized rooms, good bathroom. It’s been newly redecorated and recarpeted. Lots of built in storage space with gas central heating too. I do like it but I’m keeping my options open so I’m viewing a maisonette in town tomorrow lunch. I like this one a lot. It’s very ideal due to its location. So we’ll see.

The guy came and looked at the leak. He was unable to fully remove the radiator due to the wooded fittings on the wall surrounding it. He said he’ll isolate the radiator so it’s no longer connected to the system so we can still use the heating for the other radiators. So we’ve turned it back on as Scarlett will freeze to death in her ice box room. He said someone will ring up about coming out to replace the radiator soon. They’ll probably need I rip off some of the wooden slats. Oh well, got to be done I guess. Our carpet is soaking wet. It squelches when you step on it. Lovely!!

Scarlett went to bed at 7:30. She settled at 8 whilst we were eating dinner. Mom got ready for work. I watched some TV then I came up to get into bed and watch some new NCIS. I turned it off at 11pm and now I’m just laid in bed thinking about all the stuff I will need when I move out. I can’t wait!


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.

Okay, not single

So we talked. We agreed we both need to do more and be better. I’d had a long ass week at work. So had he. I’m worried about my impending scan (waiting for the letter). Christmas is coming. Money!

Saturday morning Scarlett gave me an epic lay-in. She woke up at 9am. I was like woah! She got up and had her bottle. We watched teletubbies then we had breakfast. She went down for a nap at 11am. Mom and I started tidying my room. It’s been too long since I did it. I managed to get rid of 3 bags of unwanted clothes – both mine and Scarlett’s. Also 2 bags of rubbish. And some recyclables. Overall we did well. She woke up at half 1. We got dressed and headed to my nans for lunch and a cup of tea. We ended up being there until 6pm. Scarlett had dinner there then we headed home. I still had some bits to do in my room so once she was in bed I ate, caught up with Inhumans then headed upstairs to finish. My room looks so much better now.

Today she woke up at half 7. She had a bottle and we played then breakfast. We got dressed and then my mom dropped us at the station. We got to Eastleigh at 10:30. She was a bit shy at first as we don’t see my dad and family that often. She was fine after a while. We had lunch at 12ish then we went to the park behind my Dad’s house. Then we wandered to the lake before heading back.

She was tired so I got her to lay down on a blanket in the front room. She nodded off pretty quick. We left her to nap. We convened in the kitchen. She woke up and they all had dinner (I don’t like gammon so I just had some mash). Then they had pecan pie and custard. Apparently she likes it as she ate all her pudding. We grabbed our stuff at 4:45 and set off for the train station.

We got on the train at 5:15 and were back in Farnborough by 6:05. Mom hadn’t eaten (and neither had I) so we got food on our way home. We ate. Scarlett helped lol she got in the bath at 7:30. I had a shower then I did her bottle and she went to bed at 8. She was out like a light, bless her.

I got into bed at half 9. I found my Fitbit charger so that was on charge after I showered. It had been flashing red at me all day so I had fully expected it to die all day.

Payday tomorrow. Can finally get some of my Christmas shopping done on Saturday. I have 1/3 left to do. Some is online so will get it ordered. We’re taking her to see santa on Saturday. I wonder if she’ll cry like she did last year lol

I’m waiting patiently for my urgent scan referral letter. Hopefully I get that tomorrow. The sooner it’s done, the better I’ll feel.


Ps. There is 28 days till Christmas!!!!

Sunday check in

Friday was a busy day at work. I was really tired because I had kept waking up Thursday night for no reason.

Brett actually finished work at a reasonable time. He got off the train at 8:45. We ordered pizza for dinner and watched a film called Captain Phillips. It was good. We went up to bed at half 11 and agreed we wouldn’t go to sleep late as we were getting up earlier than normal.

Saturday Scarlett woke up at 8ish. Brett got up. We decided we’d have breakfast in town. So he got dressed and headed out. We had McDonald’s breakfast and they messed up the order. We didn’t realise until we’d sat down and we couldn’t be bothered to go back to the till. Scarlett ate her hash brown and a bit of her egg. When we finished we loaded her back in the stroller and headed to the tattoo shop. We arrived and they went about drawing up the right size for our wrists. Brett went first. Scarlett fell asleep whilst he was having his done (despite the shop music) and didn’t wake until I’d had mine done. She was hungry so we popped into Sainsbury’s to grab some bits for Work Monday then we headed to my nan’s for lunch. We had lunch and Scarlett played in the garden, indoors, at the table. Just everywhere, doing different things. She coloured. She read her book (someone read to her). Played catch. Played with her baby. All sorts lol

We walked home at 5ish. I sorted some dinner for her then me and Brett left to head into town for some food and cinema. We ended up going to the Wetherspoons. I had the buttermilk fried chicken burger with cheesy garlic and fries. He had a beef burger with chips. We both had a soft drink. We went to the cinema at 8:30 to see The Snowman. It was quite good but some of it was easy to guess.

We came out of the cinema at 10ish and went into Sainsbury’s so Brett could buy his brother the Fast 8 DVD. We ended up buying Scarlett some outfits, a new jumper and new shoes between us. Typical parents lol

We got the bus at 11:15 and we’re home by 11:30. We pretty much jumped straight in bed. We didn’t want another late night as I wanted us to get up at a reasonable time so we could spend our last day together. Brett agreed I could wake him at 9.

Sunday Scarlett woke up at 7:45. I took her down for a bottle at 8ish and some Sunday snuggles. When she was due breakfast at 9 I took her up to wake Brett up. He pissed me off and wouldn’t get up so I left him to it. I was irritated because the plan had been, I’d make us all breakfast then he’d shower and then he’d watch her whilst I had a bath. Spend time with her, without me. Instead, she started rubbing her eyes just before 10 so I plonked her in her cot and got in the bath. She slept till just after noon.

I had woken Brett up at 10:30 when I was done in the shower. He said he’d get up and shower now. He wanted to have some morning sex first. We forgot to shut my bedroom door and my brother came upstairs for a toilet and peered in (the door was open so no reason why he shouldn’t) to see if I was up, given how late in the day and I have a toddler, and saw Brett’s bare ass and ball sack hanging. Well he says he didn’t see as he quickly ducked back out and had a wee. But there’s no way he didn’t see SOMETHING. We had to stop because we just kept laughing. It was really rather funny. 18 months and no one has ever caught us haha

After that, he got in the shower and I got dressed. I went downstairs to tidy up from breakfast and then relax. Scarlett woke up at midday. I got her dressed. She wore her new Unicorn jumper that Brett bought her in Sainsbury’s. And her new shoes. We set off for my nan’s at 1 for dinner. We stayed all afternoon. Brett nipped home to pick his stuff up. Scarlett fell asleep on my lap for half hour. She seemed a bit like she’s coming down with something. She’s only just getting over having Croup, it turned into a nasty cold. Hope she’s not sick! We dropped Brett off at the station at 5:30 then my Nan dropped us home. Scarlett had some supper then I bathed her. She had her bottle on the sofa with me then we sat and watched some teletubbies. She went to bed at 7:30. Went straight to sleep like a good girl.

I made myself some supper and got ready for bed. I got into bed at 9pm because I’m tired. Scarlett woke up at 10pm crying. I cuddled her and put her back down. Haven’t heard a peep from her yet. Hopefully she’s okay!

Back to work tomorrow. Why are weekends so bloody short!


Ps. Today there is 9 weeks until Christmas Eve!!!!
