Today Harriet was terrible in the night again. She’s a tease. I shall not get my hopes high again. In the morning it snowed for a bit (first snow this winter). I tidied the footstool storage and found no. 3 from Owen’s clock puzzle which had been missing for years. In the evening we watched Easy on Netflix.

Today Harriet only woke once in the night. Owen woke up very grumpy in the morning and went back to sleep in our bed till late. I finished the 4th The Expanse book and really enjoyed that.

Today Harriet had been waking up every 2 hourly again. In the afternoon the builder came to chat about the chimney breast work. Afterwards we went to pick up Owen from preschool and visited the stove shop to look at the displays again, and then went to the library. We had Thai takeaway for dinner and Owen ate all his satays.

Today Harriet was still terrible in the night. How can such a cute baby in the day be so horrible at night? In the morning, Peter took the children to the toddler group so I could have more sleep. Then in the afternoon Peter took Owen to Maddie’s house for play date while I stayed home with Harriet.

Today we all woke up late, after 10am, as both children had been waking up multiple times in the night. In the afternoon Peter took Owen to the cinema to watch Paddington Bear while I stayed home to make sure Harriet napped.

Today we went to the Christmas market at Cogges farm. Harriet was quite overtired from skipping her nap, and Owen had been trying our patience.

Today Owen finally got a star for not having any potty accidents. We brought out the Christmas box from the attic and started the advent calendar. Poor Harriet is constipated again. I spent the day drawing drafts for our extension.

Today I did more IKEAing and finished Owen's new desk (it is much bigger than envisoned, but he is such a good academic boy who deserves a desk unmolested by annoying baby hands). Also started to contact people for the house's extension. Hopefully can get everything done before 2019! Quite excited about my upcoming new year resolutions (will involve decluttering and less shopping).

Today the man from the shop came to access our house for the new fireplace. Quite excited about it though it won't be done before winter is over. Why didn't we think of installing the fire before it got cold?
