Today Harriet had been terrible in the night and then waking up way too early for the Toddler Group (7am). Owen on the other hand, woke up way too late (10am). So neither went to the toddler group. We stayed in with our new fire and I watched loads of art tutorials in the evening. Poor Harriet was constipated again, and trembling with pain.

Today Owen finally tried eating grapes and realised that he loved them. Peter took both children to kids runaround at the community centre while I stayed home with our new fire. Owen’s quite good today and ate all his dinner too.

Today we went to Witney and met up with Daisy & Lou for lunch. Later I came home to cook a huge amount of noodles and brought them to the Chinese New Year party. Owen had been very difficult and annoying lately and both Peter and I ended up scolding him again and again. In the evening I enjoyed our new fire.

Today I worked from home so Peter could take Owen to nursery without waking Harriet. She napped for 3.5 hours in the morning! In the evening we watched The End of the F World.

Today we went to the natural history museum in Oxford, and then to a late hospital appointment and came home rather late. The children were both tired and hungry. Poor Owen we had been neglecting him lately, distracted by Harriet being cute, and so he's had to resort to misbehaviour to get our attention.

Today I went to work in the office while Peter babysit the children for half-term. They seemed very happy with him. Harriet had been up 3 times in the night, breastfeeding. She didn't seem to understand mummy needs to work the next day.

Today Harriet threw up in the night after feeding and then cried and cried for hours again. How can such a cute baby turn into such a terrible gremlin in the night? The architect came today finally to discuss plans about the extension.

Today grandparents came to visit and the children were elated. Owen had a really good time and went to bed after 10pm!

Today Harriet cried for hours in the night again so we were all exhausted in the day and Owen was so tired he fell sick and went back to sleep in the afternoon so we couldn’t go out.
