Today I worked from home on some boring bits. Couldn't wait for the weekend. We gave Owen his late birthday present: a secondhand set of some 50 Beast Quests books (with collectors cards). He was ecstatic.
Today I took the children to the library after school and then went home in the rain. Owen was too tired and cold to go to tennis lesson.
Today Maddie came over for play date with Owen. Busy week for me!
Today I did my first drawing in Procreate iPad app. Fun!
Today I took Harriet to Little Wild Things where we met up with Georgie and Evie. Afterwards they came over and played all day until nearly 5pm. What a lovely day!
Today I finally couldn’t resist anymore and secretly bought an iPad Pro + pencil. Shhh.
Today we had to wake the kids at 8:30am to get ready to go to Witney to watch How To Train Your Dragon.
Today Owen went to Jude’s birthday party unsupervised and was over-sugared, stoned, tired, and rude by the time I came to collect him.
Today I took Harriet to see the GP to get more meds for her constipation. Even had to collect Owen early from school in order to make it to the appointment on time.
Today Harriet continued to suffer from constipation and was in so much distress I had to collect her early from nursery. It breaks my heart to see her suffering. Not sure if related, she also started telling us about her imaginary friend for the first time.
Today we stayed home all day as Owen wanted to play with his birthday presents. I baked scones. In the evening we watched Game of Thrones.
Today we're going back home. Everyone went out for a walk while I stayed home (at grandparents') for some peace and quiet vacuuming.
Today we were woken up super early again by Owen's cousins shouting outside our bedroom. 4 children is quite a lot under one roof. I managed to finish all of Persepolis Rising audiobook.
Today we were woken up super early. We had a lovely quiet time with the children in the garden at grandparents'.
Today we packed up to go to grandparents' house for the weekend and to see Owen again! It was super hot in the car, wish the air-con hadn't broken down.
Today I took Harriet to the park after work. Owen was still away at grandparents. She played with her friend Sebastian for quite a while.
Today I took Harriet to Blenheim after work because I couldn't find a place to park near the library. She played at the sandpit, playground, and we went on the Merry-Go-Round, Helter Skelter (my first time!), and spinning Tea Cups. Regretted not going on the Ferris Wheel as well. And then the choo choo train. We left Blenheim after 5! She was laughing a lot, and kept saying "horsey (merry-go-round) very good!". A shame Owen wasn't there!
Today was Owen's birthday! But he's away at Grandparents'. I went back to work and Harriet had problem waking up. In the afternoon we stayed home to play with magic sand and stickers.
Today we waited for Grandma to come take Owen to her house to stay for the rest of the school holidays. We played in the garden while waiting. Then Harriet was very sad when Owen left.
Today Owen went to Freddie's birthday party while Harriet stayed home with me. We played in the garden.
