Today

Today Harriet continued to suffer from constipation and was in so much distress I had to collect her early from nursery. It breaks my heart to see her suffering. Not sure if related, she also started telling us about her imaginary friend for the first time.

Today we stayed home all day as Owen wanted to play with his birthday presents. I baked scones. In the evening we watched Game of Thrones.

Today we're going back home. Everyone went out for a walk while I stayed home (at grandparents') for some peace and quiet vacuuming.

Today we were woken up super early again by Owen's cousins shouting outside our bedroom. 4 children is quite a lot under one roof. I managed to finish all of Persepolis Rising audiobook.

Today we were woken up super early. We had a lovely quiet  time with the children in the garden at grandparents'.

Today we packed up to go to grandparents' house for the weekend and to see Owen again! It was super hot in the car, wish the air-con hadn't broken down.

Today I took Harriet to the park after work. Owen was still away at grandparents. She played with her friend Sebastian for quite a while.

Today I took Harriet to Blenheim after work because I couldn't find a place to park near the library. She played at the sandpit, playground, and we went on the Merry-Go-Round, Helter Skelter (my first time!), and spinning Tea Cups. Regretted not going on the Ferris Wheel as well. And then the choo choo train. We left Blenheim after 5! She was laughing a lot, and kept saying "horsey (merry-go-round) very good!". A shame Owen wasn't there!

Today was Owen's birthday! But he's away at Grandparents'. I went back to work and Harriet had problem waking up. In the afternoon we stayed home to play with magic sand and stickers.

Today we waited for Grandma to come take Owen to her house to stay for the rest of the school holidays. We played in the garden while waiting. Then Harriet was very sad when Owen left.

Today Owen went to Freddie's birthday party while Harriet stayed home with me. We played in the garden.

Thursday, 11th Apr 2019

Today was the last day of my 'holiday'. I took Harriet and Owen to Blenheim palace while Peter was at work. They had a great time playing at the sandpit, playground and of course, the choo choo train.

Today we had another fun school holiday day, going to Oxford again, this time via Park & Ride. It was sunny and beautiful, we had lunch at St. Giles and then ice cream at G&D's. Like good old days! Afterwards we went to the Natural History  museum.

Tuesday, 9th Apr 2019

Today Owen & I took the bus to Oxford. We just missed the bus on our way out despite running and so had to wait another hour for the next one. We still had a great time in Oxford.

Today I rearranged a new watercolour palette. Hopefully that will rejuvenate me to paint more. It's #1week100people tomorrow!

Today we stayed home as the children had too much fun at home to go out and I had a migraine.
