Today

Sunday, 28th Oct 2018

Today Peter took the children to a birthday party while I stayed home nursing my migraine which didn't go away until long past midnight and so I lost the entire day!

Thursday, 25th Oct 2018

Today we drove back home. When home, I folded a sketchbook in record time! 26mins! This previously took me more than an hour. So my new methods worked brilliantly. Feeling smug and clever.

Today Owen and Harriet were bored and asking for grandpa. I woke up late as Harriet woke me up in the night.

Tuesday, 23rd Oct 2018

Today Grandparents went away to babysit for Peter's sister in London, and we took the children to tea and scones.

Monday, 22nd Oct 2018

Today we went to the Science Museum in London, and the Natural History Museum too. Harriet didn't nap!

Sunday, 21st Oct 2018

Today we drove to Grandparents' house, and the children behaved marvellously on the journey, and Owen didn't even ask for the iPad or snacks.

Today Owen went to Albie's birthday party and had a great time. Harriet cried and cried and wouldn't nap.

Today I thought very hard about my sketchbook making process and think I can radically improve my efficiency. I love this challenge, it's like a game. 

Monday, 15th Oct 2018

Today I made a sketchbook, still too slow. There was a heavy feeling in the air as we were feeling sad (and perhaps guilt to the children) about Peter getting a full time job, though we were also very excited about his new job. Rather scary to change, though we both agree it will be a good experience for him. Probably like how even when you dread a run, you usually feel great afterwards.

Today Owen still didn't want to go out, and the weather looked terrible, so we stayed home all day again. I made another sketchbook.

Saturday, 13th Oct 2018

Today I woke up early to play with the children and they were very happy mostly even though we stayed home all day. In the evening, I dabbled in printing on fabric.

Thursday, 11th Oct 2018

Today Peter had an exciting job interview in Oxford. Sad that we will have to change our current comfortable lifestyle (where he works as a relaxing freelancer & stay-at-home dad), but excited about the new prospects for him too. I had a great time showing off my handmade sketchbooks at work.
