Today I was super extra nice to Owen, and he was very nice to me in return.
Today Owen's teacher called to say another child had hit Owen's face with a plank of wood by accident. Poor him, he had quite a nasty bruise (going to be a black eye) and seemed quite shaken.
Today I took Harriet to Witney without a stroller and she was very excited to walk though I did end up having to carry her and hurting my back. I also attended Owen's parents teachers review meeting.
Today we were all poorly and tired and lazy and so didn't go out. Poor Harriet really wanted to go out and was very sad.
Today I took Owen to Evie's birthday party. Poor Harriet couldn't go as she was ill.
Today was my day off to do some urban sketching at the museums in Oxford, but I got stuck with childcare as Harriet was ill and couldn't go to nursery.
Today Harriet got sent home for having a temperature again. I did an amazing parallel parking outside her nursery, though it did take me some 15mins to do it.
Today I did some therapeutic colouring with Owen after school.
Today I took Owen down to Jaffe & Neale again for some mother & son bookshop cafe time. In the evening, someone bought a sketchbook from my Etsy shop! Unfortunately I didn't have this one ready made and had listed it by accident, so had to spend the whole evening making it.
Today I took Harriet to Little Wild Things, and it was pirates theme. It was sunny but still very cold.
Today Owen woke us up too early again. Why does he wake so early on weekends and so late on weekdays when he has to go to school?? We stayed home and it was super cold, even hailing.
Today we went to Jaffe & Neale at Chipping Norton so Owen could claim his world book day book.
Today I was very very tired somehow.
Today I managed to take the boys to school and go to work even though I was up until 4am vomiting. Amazing! We went to the library after school where Harriet had a great time playing with Cleo and Owen found fellow fans of Beast Quest books in Jude and Mozes.
Today I went out to a Torchbox social while Owen spent the afternoon with his best friend Eddie. He had such a great time there. I only had 3 drinks, but vomited all night until 4am! Banana was the antidote, I discovered.
Today I had a quiet afternoon home with Owen.
Today was Harriet's 2 year check with the health visitor. Owen was quite good until Harriet's bath time where he had a bit of an attention seeking fake cry. In the evening I went to life drawing. Finally the stars collided with the group meeting at Charlbury instead of Spelsbury, and Harriet falling asleep extra early due to skipped nap. So I had no excuse. I did enjoy it!
Today I was cross with Owen for waking us early and also just a built up of day to day resentments. Perhaps I was a bit harsh. Surprisingly he was quite contrite and didn't retort. I'll try and be nicer to him tomorrow.
Today we had lunch at Banbury Hill Farm with Daisy, Lou and grandparents to celebrate Harriet's birthday.
Today the kids were in childcare till evening.
