Today Owen was still feeling poorly, so I worked from home and took turns with Peter to look after him.
Today I found out that I had to surrender my laptop to my workplace while on maternity leave! Spending all evening backing up data and feeling rather insecure. Owen was still unwell, and Peter had to take a day off work to look after him. In the morning I had to leave for work before he woke. He cried when he woke up later and found I had gone to work.
Today Owen was still feeling miserable. He had to have biscuits for lunch and dinner and had to watch loads of TV. Apparently this nasty bug has been affecting loads of children and grownups at his nursery. Fingers crossed Peter and I won't catch it!
Today poor Owen was feeling very poorly and been vomiting all day and didn't even want to watch TV!
Today Owen went out for a walk with his best friend, and then went to play at his house. He had so much fun he fell asleep in the car park when we went to Witney later.
Today we stayed in waiting for something to be delivered but it was cancelled in the end. I spent some time playing with my new De Atramentis fountain pen inks and doing more sketching. A little obsessed about it at the moment.
Today again I sketched in the evening and didn't watch telly or sit on the sofa at all.
Today I didn't sit on the sofa all day! I spent the evening sketching and painting (also a bit of shopping).
Today I banned myself from the sofa so I can get this baby into the optimal position.
Today we went to the hospital for the 36 weeks ultrasound scan of the baby. Afterwards we took Owen to the Natural History Museum in Oxford where he had such a great time he didn't want to go home.
Today I took Owen to the Charlbury toddler group and then went to see our Health Visitor. Owen's been sleeping well and not waking us up in the middle of the night for 2 nights in a row now. Fingers crossed!
Today we took Owen to Banbury Hill Farm, and he was such a good boy, playing by himself, so we could have a relaxing lunch and coffee.
Today we took Owen to Witney for his first professional haircut!
Today I finally went to the office to work, and it did cheer me up to be out. In the evening I practise more sketching.
Today I dropped a drinking glass and broke it. Annoyed with myself for being clumsy.
Today I was kept awake by a tummy ache / Braxton Hicks contractions all night and morning, and was worried that I was going into labour prematurely. Luckily it eventually went away.
Today we took Owen to visit the local preschool. It is lovely! Though the walk made me exhausted the rest of the day.
Today I went to the Cotswold Birth Centre in Chipping Norton for yet more tests while Peter took Owen to the Children Centre. Owen had been a very good boy all day.
Today we sorted out more of the baby's stuff, and I'd been feeling really tired all day.
Today I sorted out some of the baby's clothes and stuff. Exhausted.
