Today Owen had a school trip to Banbury Hill Farm, but was almost late for school because he wanted to finish playing with his stickers first, so he didn't have time for breakfast. It was also the first time he was taken to school by someone else. Our turn next week to take his friend.

Today I found out I won £5.80 in yesterday's Euromillions draw! I don't often play, so it was kind of lucky. In the evening we watched more Marvel Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (season 2) as it is getting incredibly suspenseful.

Today I was tired from a bad night and also a bad cough and didn't go out. I opened my Etsy shop selling (one) handmade sketchbook. I hope no one buys it as otherwise I would have to close shop.

Today I took Harriet to the toddler group in the morning. In the afternoon Harriet insisted on walking her toy pram with her toy baby to the park and back, which is quite a long way!

Today I took Harriet to the toddler group and then went to pick up Owen after school. This was my first non-working day since Owen started school.

Today we went to Witney to watch The Incredibles 2 at the cinema, and Harriet especially liked the superhero baby. Hope she won't use that as a role model. In the evening, I started knitting a jumper for Harriet.

Today we met up with Alice and Simon for lunch. Harriet kept calling them 'mummy' and 'daddy' and Owen called Simon 'Grandpa'!

Today I went to work bright and early, and even got the best parking spot, but forgot to bring my laptop! So had to go home and work from home. In the afternoon we installed the new car seat for Owen.

Today Daisy dropped by for a quick lunch with us. Afterwards I took Owen to the library and watched him play with his friends.

Today we was sunny and warm again, and we took the children to Cutteslowe Park. The miniature railway was amazing! Owen and I rode on it 4 times. He also played at the waterpark. We all had a great time. A fitting end to the summer holidays before school starts for Owen next week!
