Today

Tuesday, 24th Jul 2018

Today I woke up early and took the children to the library and came back before Peter was even out of bed!

Monday, 23rd Jul 2018

Today we went to Cutteslowe park where Owen had a great time playing at the playground and water play. Harriet was less impressed. It was super hot, the hottest day this year so far!

Today we took the children to Witney to feed the ducks (peas), Harriet was excited to see real ducks.

Today we stayed home and can’t remember what we did. I think I worked on my new sketching website and Harriet woke up all night giving me time to think about my website while breastfeeding her.

Today was just the mood for listening to Emmy The Great at work. It makes me want to get better at playing the guitar. I just might practice more! It also made me miss those golden days of Team Drupal, working with JP and Garrett.

Today I went to work very tired as I was stupid and went to bed late, and then Harriet woke up at 6am! At lunch, I had a satisfying chat with Georgie. So happy  to find a new best friend! Then in the evening we went to Owen's preschool nursery for his Leaver's ceremony (he's starting school in September), and then as we were too tired to make dinner, we ate at a pub. The children enjoyed themselves, but were tired and full of junk food.

Today I found out that a colleague was going to be made redundant and felt really sad about it. I must have picked up the vibes subconsciously and hence the nightmare about being fired just a few days ago!

Today I had a lie down in the garden while Harriet played by herself mostly. She woke up 4 times in the night the night before, so I was grumpy and tired, but she was very cute.

Today I took Owen to Oxford on the bus again. We spent hours in Waterstones which he really loved, and I got to admire illustrations on children's books while he looked at books by himself there.

Today I didn't sleep very well and had loads of nightmares. In one I was kidnapped by a psychopath and when I finally managed to phone the police, they couldn't help me because I couldn't tell them where I was. In another, I was told by my employers they decided to fire me as I wasn't making enough profit for them. As I was arguing my case in anger, a pickpocket stole my phone. When I finally woke up, I had a migraine, and then later Harriet was ill and threw up all afternoon. Still shaken by the dream where I was fired. I realised how much I loved my job and really don't want to lose it. I'd better work harder next week. So no, I didn't have a nice day today!

Today it was misty early on, so we went to the beach late, and then had a lovely dinner by the beach at Saunton Sands beachside grill.

Today went to the seaside at Woolacombe again and Harriet and Owen liked sitting in a hole dug in the sand, filled with seawater. In the evening, Peter and I had a rare night out at the pub without the kids.

Monday, 9th Jul 2018

Today was a glorious sunny day and we had sea view at our holiday cottage. We went to the seaside with grandparents and their friend, Charlotte, and Owen had a great time playing with Alex, Charlotte's grandson.

Sunday, 8th Jul 2018

Today was my birthday! I spent the day in a car to Devon for our holiday, and then was out of action with migraine all evening!

Saturday, 7th Jul 2018

Today we stayed home to relax all day. Owen watched Ice Age 3 on NowTV. Harriet loved the baby dinosaurs in the film. In the evening I did some housekeeping for my art supplies such as refilling my watercolour pans, cleaning my pens, and doing swatches to get to know my colours better.
