Today the balloons I ordered arrived and Owen and I learnt to make balloon animals by watching Youtube videos. It was so addictive I stayed up till 2am making them! The children were well impressed.
Today after 2 days of swearing, I finally managed to put my new drawing blog (without content) up on Heroku, with Amazon S3, Cloudflare and all that fashionable bells and whistles. So it was just one word I missed which stumped me all weekend, and made a 2hr task into a 2 days one. But it's up there now! More details coming soon...
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.
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).
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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!
Today Harriet continued to not sleep. I was too tired to take Harriet out, so we stayed home.
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.
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.
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.
Today I took Owen to get a hair cut at the local barber. Then we went to the library where they played with Maddie.
Today Peter stayed home with Harriet while I went to work. She screamed and cried when I left the house.
