Today I shopped and shopped and read many reviews for Peter's present and was exhausted and had a impending cold.

Today Owen was super happy when home from nursery and couldn't stop talking. In the evening we got Owen's Christmas presents ready. Very exciting though it is unfair that we had to give most of the credits to Father Christmas who got us to do his job for him.

Today we went down to the garden centre to get a small Christmas tree, but decided not to as they were more expensive than I'd expected. Owen had a great time at the soft play and choosing the trees anyway.

Today I took Owen to the village toddler group. In the afternoon I was cross with Peter for being unappreciative of my efforts to upkeep our house, and Owen asked me, 'What's the matter?' when I sat sulking. And later I was too angry to go to bed.

Today I looked after Owen in the day while Peter worked. I also spent the day shopping for Christmas presents, and have got Owen's presents sorted.

Today Owen had a nightmare in the night and woke quite late and tired in the morning. Afterwards we went to watch Moana at the cinema.

Today I sorted out the shopping to return and watched some of the drawing lessons videos.

Today I went out to Oxford for Torchbox's Christmas party while Peter looked after Owen by himself at home.

Today Owen was so sleepy in the morning from waking up in the night. When Peter woke him for nursery, like a teenager, he said, 'Go away daddy, I want to sleep'. It had been extremely cold today, and I felt like I would never be warm again.

Today it was very cold and I stayed home. When Owen came back from the shops with Peter and I asked if he enjoyed the trip, he showed me his freezing hands and exclaimed, 'my hands!'. So I showed him how to put them in his pockets and he looked pleased.
