Today Harriet played and painted in the garden, and then we went to feed Eddie's guinea piggies, so cute! I wish they would let me cuddle, but they were too scared of us.

Tuesday, 20th Aug 2019

Today I took Harriet to the library and park after work/nursery. She played for a long time with Aidan. In the evening I watched some tutorials on logo and type designs and felt very inspired.

Today I was lazy so I stayed home with Harriet all day and didn't take her out though I wasn't working. The weather was terrible too. So we did a bit of baking (scones).

Sunday, 18th Aug 2019

Today we took Harriet to soft play and I even got to read magazines on my iPad. I do miss Owen though, who's staying with grandparents.

Today we came back from our holiday at Cornwall. Harriet kept saying she wanted to go back to the caravan and the seaside. She doesn't understand how far away it is and how someone else would be staying there tonight.

Today I took Harriet to the library and she was so cute and clever, everyone thought she was adorable. She's a good girl again. Fingers crossed! We ran into her nursery friend, Evan, and they played together in the park.

Today we took the children to Cutteslowe Park to play and to go on the miniature trains. 

Saturday, 29th Jun 2019

Today was one of the hottest days in the year. We stayed home sensibly and I had a migraine all day, so was in bed while Peter tended to the children.

Friday, 28th Jun 2019

Today Harriet let us put her to bed without protest. She even lay in bed awake for ages before falling asleep and yet didn't cry or shout for us. Hurrah! She's fixed!

Thursday, 27th Jun 2019

Today I think I love Harriet a little less. She still wasn't sleeping and I was half dead. On the plus side I had yoga at lunch break today and started on a shiny new project at work.

Wednesday, 26th Jun 2019

Today Harriet woke us all up again so we were all tired. We had a BBQ at work. After I picked up Owen from school, I had a cup of espresso and fell into a deep coma on the sofa.

Tuesday, 25th Jun 2019

Today Harriet continued to protest at bedtime. This time she took off all her clothes including nappies and we found her bed wet with pee in the morning. After school I took the kids to soft play and we ate loads and loads of pizza. It was super good!

Monday, 24th Jun 2019

Today Harriet continued to not sleep. I was too tired to take Harriet out, so we stayed home. 

Sunday, 23rd Jun 2019

Today we stayed home mostly. In the afternoon I took the children to the shop and Harriet walked with her baby and toy buggy all the way. Owen was a tremendous help and been very thoughtful and kind with Harriet all day. It made me cry a bit, talking to Peter about what a good boy Owen was, when the children had gone to bed.

Saturday, 22nd Jun 2019

Today we took the children to the Cotswold Wildlife Park and had a wonderful time. Harriet loved the animals. We ran into Owen's best friend, Maddie while there, and he was elated.

Friday, 21st Jun 2019

Today I took 2 hrs off to attend Owen's school's summer dancing event the weather was suddenly sunny again, and in fact, too hot.

Thursday, 20th Jun 2019

Today I took Owen to get a hair cut at the local barber. Then we went to the library where they played with Maddie.

Wednesday, 19th Jun 2019

Today Peter stayed home with Harriet while I went to work. She screamed and cried when I left the house.

Tuesday, 18th Jun 2019

Today Harriet again didn't want to go to bed without crying and again woke up at 4am and not let us sleep the rest of the night. At one point she even got up (she was in my bed out of desperation) and went to Owen's room to wake him up. So we were all exhausted come time to go to work / school. My cold got worse (due to lack of sleep too) and I had to work from home. Then nursery called about Harriet being weepy, and I had to collect her early. Little Miss Trouble. On a different note, we finished watching Killing Eve season 2. Loved it!

Today I was still feeling poorly, but managed to drag myself to take Harriet to the toddler group for a short while and then went and collected some meds for Harriet. In the afternoon I told Owen off for being extra grumpy and mean to Harriet after eating too much cake from school. After sulking for awhile, he came back to me with a 'plan' to 'go to mummy and be happy' and 'go to Harriet and be happy'. How sweet!
