Today I took Harriet to messy play and almost got into a car accident due to being late, being lost, being careless, Harriet crying, and the annoying Sat Nav. After that Harriet stopped crying and repeated 'uh oh' instead. In the end she hated messy play anyway. Seems like none of my children liked it. Probably got that from me.
Today I took Owen out to Witney to buy grocery, then hung out at the bookshop, and then to the cafe. As usual whenever I took him out, just the two of us, he was such a good boy. In the evening I sat alone, knitting Harriet's jumper while listening to indie music from Soundcloud. Bliss.
Today we went to the Straw Kitchen to meet up with Georgie and her family. Great to see the children get along. Harriet woke up at 10am, and then didn't get to nap till we drove home just before 5pm and slept till 7:30pm! So it was all a bit mad and she was singing in bed, full of energy, after I put her to bed.
Today Owen had a school trip to Banbury Hill Farm, but was almost late for school because he wanted to finish playing with his stickers first, so he didn't have time for breakfast. It was also the first time he was taken to school by someone else. Our turn next week to take his friend.
Today we to the Maker's market at our village with the children for dinner and came home quite late. Harriet woke us all in the night.
Today I found out I won £5.80 in yesterday's Euromillions draw! I don't often play, so it was kind of lucky. In the evening we watched more Marvel Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (season 2) as it is getting incredibly suspenseful.
Today I was tired from a bad night and also a bad cough and didn't go out. I opened my Etsy shop selling (one) handmade sketchbook. I hope no one buys it as otherwise I would have to close shop.
Today I took Harriet to the toddler group in the morning. In the afternoon Harriet insisted on walking her toy pram with her toy baby to the park and back, which is quite a long way!
Today we went to Cutteslowe park and rode on the miniature trains again and again.
Today Owen went to Maddie's birthday party at Little Wild Things and Harriet gatecrashed.
Today we went to lunch at The Plough at Finstock to say goodbye to Tomasz who was going to move back to uni.
Today I did my knitting at work during lunch break.
Today I watched 2 episodes of Bakeoff while knitting a jumper for Harriet.
Today Harriet made me sing Baa Baa Black Sheep countless times and Alexa had to play it on a loop on our Echo Dot.
Today I took Harriet to the toddler group and then went to pick up Owen after school. This was my first non-working day since Owen started school.
Today we went to Witney to watch The Incredibles 2 at the cinema, and Harriet especially liked the superhero baby. Hope she won't use that as a role model. In the evening, I started knitting a jumper for Harriet.
Today we met up with Alice and Simon for lunch. Harriet kept calling them 'mummy' and 'daddy' and Owen called Simon 'Grandpa'!
Today we close shop early at work to go punting in Oxford, and Peter and the children came too!
Today I went to work bright and early, and even got the best parking spot, but forgot to bring my laptop! So had to go home and work from home. In the afternoon we installed the new car seat for Owen.
Today Owen started school! He seemed happy and no tears.
