Today I felt depressed thinking that once the short break is over (while Owen is in nursery and before new baby comes) we'll again have no life or freedom for the next ten(?) years. Won't be able to go to the cinema to watch grown up movies, go to nice restaurants, relax at cafe, go out without faffing about with kids, or even just go out in the evening. We've only managed to go to the cinema once in the past 3 years without Owen. It makes me want to scream and cry.

Today we spent hours at Cafe Nero while Owen was in nursery (and I'm on maternity leave and new baby not arrived yet). I was sketching and 'relaxing', but again it wasn't as good as I'd expected.

Today we went to the cafe at Banbury Hill Farm for coffee while Owen was in nursery, but it wasn't as amazing as I'd thought it would be.

Today Owen started preschool and came home very happy and suddenly more grown up. I did a lot of vacuuming today and even cleaned the car, and so was happy too.

Today Peter took Owen to the toddler group. After that we just stayed home and I read Owen loads of books.

Today grandparents came to visit. Owen had a great time. I was ill from diarrhoea and stomach cramps.

Today was my last day at work before starting my year long maternity leave. Owen finally got well enough to go back to nursery.

Today Owen was still feeling poorly, so I worked from home and took turns with Peter to look after him.
