Today Harriet slept through the night! Sadly I didn’t as I was bad and addicted to online shopping. In the morning Peter took the children to the village toddler group while I cleaned the house.

Today we finally managed to leave the house for a very short walk before it got dark and Owen had fun at the puddles though he tripped and fell into one. It was a clear beautiful day and felt very wintery. I spent a lot of time looking at dining tables and furniture. The nesting instinct is strong.

Today we went to Witney quite late for some quick shopping. Finally got Owen new wellies from Next. It was dark by the time we came back. We started eating mince pies and listening to Christmas music.

Today Harriet went back to waking loads in the night. We discovered a folder of notes about Owen from his nursery which was very entertaining read.

Today Harriet only woke up twice in the night! A massive improvement from her usual 6-7 times a night. It was also a poo day for me as both Harriet and Owen gave me loads of soiled clothing and textiles to wash! And Owen got his new shoes soaked with wee.

Today Owen started potty training again and had a few accidents. I over baked an apple cake. It was getting cold and I spent loads of time researching for / dreaming of a fireplace. I finally got Owen cheap new shoes from not-Clarks (they’re from Next).

Today I blacked out while rushing from bed to feed Harriet and Peter found me on the floor. In the afternoon we went to the preschool for a chat about Owen’s progress. They thought he might be the academic sort.

Today I didn't sleep very much again. In the morning Peter took the children to the village toddler group and they all had a great time. Owen was very good all day and even ate his dinner! Harriet was a bit broken and not sleeping well.

Today we stayed home all day. In the evening, we resumed catching up The Great British Bakeoff now that we had finished Stranger Things season 2.

Today we went to the Bonfire night at Charlbury and Owen was frightened by the fireworks. He really loved it last year. I finally bought the expensive baby carrier I had been coveting for years and it felt great though it didn't magically make Harriet lighter.
