Today

Friday, 20th Jul 2018

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!

Tuesday, 17th Jul 2018

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.

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.

Wednesday, 4th Jul 2018

Today Peter was ill. Harriet was also poorly and very angry and woke up all night so I only got to sleep at 4am!

Tuesday, 3rd Jul 2018

Today I went to help out at Owen's preschool for the first time! It was quite interesting though I was very nervous initially. Didn't shout at any kids, including Owen. Peter took Harriet to the hospital for some routine checkup & tests.

Monday, 2nd Jul 2018

Today Owen had another taster session at his new primary school. So I didn't take him out anywhere. It was still very very hot. We had early dinner, then played in the garden in the evening before bed.

Today we didn't go to Daisy's BBQ. I was busy organising things for the family and doing online shopping for children's clothes, grocery etc. I also started the Sktchy subscription just to try it out, and maybe I am just a little hooked.
