Today we took the children to play in the park. Harriet had become a really cheeky monkey.
Today we went to the beach again, and then drove home after dinner with the children asleep in the car, and arrived home after midnight. Exhausting even though it wasn't me driving!
Today we went to the seaside with relatives and friends. Owen had a few potty accidents even though he had been potty trained for months. Perhaps it was due to diarrhoea. In the evening I did a bit of sketching.
Today we attended Bryony's wedding. We had Harriet with us most of the time, and everyone thought she was lovely and cute. She was very happy about all the new things and people around her, and loved the dogs and birds at the beach.
Today we packed and drove to North Devon to attend a wedding on the weekend. It was stressful and chaotic trying to pack with the 2 children distracting us. We later realised we could have sent them to nursery / preschool for the day while we packed! In the evening I had a migraine and was out of action.
Today I did something stupid at work but luckily managed to rectify it in time with minimal damage. Very touched at how helpful our sysadmin was, and how he didn't reprimand me. Then later my boss told me they were impressed by my performance at the Wagtail workshop. The kindness from people made me buzz all evening.
Today I went to our Bristol office for Wagtail training again! This time I got a lift from Georgie, and I chatted her ears off, making her take wrong turns, but we had such a great time. I also really enjoyed the workshop and meeting other colleagues. How exciting is my life? Learning so many fun new things.
Today I got angry with Owen for not eating properly and just being a pain all day. After my tirade, he said, 'be happy mummy, let's do a cuddle,' and that cheered me up.
Today I was getting annoyed with the kids again. Mondays are the worst. I did my drawing in the afternoon so I could do some programming in the evening.
Today I took Owen to Witney without Harriet and he was super good. I got him sandals and hat, and when we went home I even drove to the petrol station by myself for the first time and pumped some gas! I felt like a grown up. And I didn't make the petrol station go up in flames like I'd imagined.
