Today I took Owen to Oxford on the bus again. We spent hours in Waterstones which he really loved, and I got to admire illustrations on children's books while he looked at books by himself there.

Today I didn't sleep very well and had loads of nightmares. In one I was kidnapped by a psychopath and when I finally managed to phone the police, they couldn't help me because I couldn't tell them where I was. In another, I was told by my employers they decided to fire me as I wasn't making enough profit for them. As I was arguing my case in anger, a pickpocket stole my phone. When I finally woke up, I had a migraine, and then later Harriet was ill and threw up all afternoon. Still shaken by the dream where I was fired. I realised how much I loved my job and really don't want to lose it. I'd better work harder next week. So no, I didn't have a nice day today!

Today it was misty early on, so we went to the beach late, and then had a lovely dinner by the beach at Saunton Sands beachside grill.

Today went to the seaside at Woolacombe again and Harriet and Owen liked sitting in a hole dug in the sand, filled with seawater. In the evening, Peter and I had a rare night out at the pub without the kids.

Today was a glorious sunny day and we had sea view at our holiday cottage. We went to the seaside with grandparents and their friend, Charlotte, and Owen had a great time playing with Alex, Charlotte's grandson.

Today was my birthday! I spent the day in a car to Devon for our holiday, and then was out of action with migraine all evening!

Today we stayed home to relax all day. Owen watched Ice Age 3 on NowTV. Harriet loved the baby dinosaurs in the film. In the evening I did some housekeeping for my art supplies such as refilling my watercolour pans, cleaning my pens, and doing swatches to get to know my colours better.
