Today we moved the furniture a bit to try out different layout. Still undecided about what to do with our house and reluctant to commit to big furniture or drilling holes though we moved in half a year ago.
Today was the second day of the new year and already I missed all my New Year resolutions as I was too busy shopping on IKEA online. We stayed in though it was a nice day, and I spent a lot of time playing with Owen.
Today was New Year's Day. True to my resolutions, I wrote something, sketched something, took a picture, and slept till nearly noon (Owen was ill from cold, so he snoozed till nearly noon!)
Today we went to Witney to get supplies and Owen was very excited and happy throughout.
Today we finally came back home, Owen was sad to leave grandparents, but was also very happy when we reached home, especially after a good nap in the car.
Today Peter's best friends from Hong Kong came and visit us at Peter's parents' house, and we had fun catching up.
Today Aunty Gill came to visit us at Peter's parents' house, and brought Owen more presents.
Today we went to Knole Park where Owen had fun doing the reindeer trail with Grandma.
Today Peter and his parents too Owen to the park, and he had loads of fun. Afterwards he had more presents.
Today was Christmas Day. We were super excited for Owen, and he was spoilt with many presents.
Today was Christmas Eve. Grandparents took Owen to the Christmas service (I didn't go), and he was a very good boy.
Today I had a migraine and woke up late. Grandma took Owen for a walk to post a letter, and had fun playing in puddles.
Today we packed and cleaned and left for grandparents' house. Owen was super happy to arrive.
Today I was grumpy about Owen's recent bad behavior, and started listening to 'Calm Parents, Happy Kids', and it did inspire me to be nicer to him.
Today we took Owen to the garden centre to see Father Christmas, and Owen threw a hissy fit. Certainly didn't deserve the 'Good Boy' certificate Father Christmas gave him.
Today I took Owen to the cinema to watch A Nightmare Before Christmas as he kept talking about going to the cinema. It was so boring I almost dozed off.
Today we went to Witney and Owen loved the new cafe. Afterwards we went to the toy shop, and Owen really really wanted a T.rex toy and refused to leave the shop without it. However after giving him a moment, he finally did the right thing and put it back. Good boy!
Today we stayed in mostly, and Owen made some ginger biscuits.
Today was my last day of work this year. Owen slept very badly last night again, so Peter and I were exhausted and woke up late for work. We spent the evening having lots of fun with my early Xmas present from work, including Owen.
Today Owen was up again and again in the night, and ended up sleeping in our bed. In the morning we were all exhausted and grumpy, and been prone to tears and outbursts all day. Owen had Christmas dinner and a visit from Father Christmas at his nursery today. In the evening he had a massive tantrum before bed.
