Sunday we were suppose to go to my Dad’s for a visit but Scarlett had such a rubbish nights sleep so when she fell asleep at 9am after her porridge I had NO intentions of waking her up. So we missed the train 10am train. We aimed for the 11am. I woke her up at 10:30 and we just got to the station with a minute to spare, and still missed the train lol so we agreed we’d give it a miss as we had to wait another hour for the next, and wouldn’t arrive for another hour after that, would’ve been 1pm by time we arrived. So mom picked us back up from the station, drove us to Morrison’s so I could grab some chicken breasts for dinner as mom had only got out enough meat for her and her boyfriend. Which was fine as originally me and Scarlett weren’t meant to be here for dinner.
We had a pretty good day in the end. We watched a Christmas film and Scarlett played with her toys. She plays so nicely for a 10.5 month old. We had dinner and she had hers then bath, bottle and bed.
Monday she was 46 weeks. She had a full day ar nursery, as per her new routine since November 28th. She is clearly settling into the full days now as they were able to get 2oz down her. Normally she completely refuses!!!
Tuesday I was due to go out for dinner with my work team. It was to welcome Millie to our team and to say a Merry Christmas. Obviously I take over Scarlett’s care ASAP after work so I said to my mom to drop her to the restaurant and we’d meet her there and she’d eat with us. We had starters and mains. Scarlett shared my starter, cheesy garlic flat bread. She also had a bit of my grilled chicken from my burger. She was a good sport and she took a shine to Millie, as did Millie with her lol
We got home at 7. I got Scarlett bathed and ready for bed. Apparently she wasn’t actually ready for bed though, and didn’t go to sleep until 9ish lol
Wednesday, my office had sent out an email in the week before about drinks, so my mom dropped Scarlett to me after work. Me and Millie walked her round the corner to the pub. I had a coke and we stayed with the others chatting for 2 hours. Scarlett was entertaining them all. She took a shine to our Scottish manager and she let him pick her up lol mom picked us up at 7ish. I got back, mom bathed her whilst I cooked my dinner then I sat and shared my mini pizza with her. Surprise, surprise! She went to bed at 9ish again.
Today is the twins 4th birthday. Can’t believe they are 4. Feels like only yesterday my aunt had them. We went to my aunts house for a birthday party after I finished work. We got there at 5:30. We gave the boys their cards and presents. My grandad came with us as my nan couldn’t because she was working. My aunt did nibbles and the kids ran riot. We did the cake then we left at gone 7pm. We got home at 7:50. I took Scarlett straight in for a bath, bottle and then bed. She was down by 8:30pm. I watched Blindspot at 9 then cooked myself some dinner. I was so tired so I was in bed by 11pm.
I am off to sleep now. Scarlett has got her Christmas party at nursery tomorrow. I am working. Same old, same old.
