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.

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.

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.

Today Eddie came over to play at our house. Yes! I can handle play dates. Now I just have to throw some dinner parties.

Today I had a lovely chat with Georgie at lunch and found out we had even more things in common. How nice. I drove out to Witney with Owen after work to get an MDF board only to find it didn't fit in my car.

Today was only the second day of the month and I couldn't wait longer to get my fix at Jackson's. I took the children to the park and they had so much fun playing with Maddie.

Today I tidied up my Etsy shop and snooped around at competitor shops and actually quite admired one of them. Finally added a new product to my shop.

Today I went a bit mad about the  ‎麻の葉 (asanoha) pattern and kept up all night thinking about it, as well as woke Peter up. :P

Today I searched and thought and thought and searched, determined to find a way to do screen printing (with photo emulsion) at home. Had been looking at all manner of hardware, tools and machinery. The clocks changed!

Today I signed up for the LoveLiveDrawing online course though it was quite expensive, but I like the people running it and want to support their effort. Also I'm sure it will be really good.
