Today

Saturday, 8th Sep 2018

Today we met up with Alice and Simon for lunch. Harriet kept calling them 'mummy' and 'daddy' and Owen called Simon 'Grandpa'! 

Friday, 7th Sep 2018

Today we close shop early at work to go punting in Oxford, and Peter and the children came too!

Today I went to work bright and early, and even got the best parking spot, but forgot to bring my laptop! So had to go home and work from home. In the afternoon we installed the new car seat for Owen.

Today Daisy dropped by for a quick lunch with us. Afterwards I took Owen to the library and watched him play with his friends.

Sunday, 2nd Sep 2018

Today we was sunny and warm again, and we took the children to Cutteslowe Park. The miniature railway was amazing! Owen and I rode on it 4 times. He also played at the waterpark. We all had a great time. A fitting end to the summer holidays before school starts for Owen next week!

Today we went to our favourite bookshop in Chipping Norton. Harriet pooped twice while we were in the bookshop. And I ate 2 packets of crisps in the evening. Not related.

Today I wasn't late for work and even parked at a different spot. Work wasn't very exciting. In the evening we watched 2 episodes of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Harriet smelled like a puppy today, so cute. I hope she's as tired as me and won't wake me up in the night.

Today I was super tired at work again, thanks to Harriet. The children had a lot of fun going to the library in the afternoon with Peter after half day in childcare. In the evening I did some drawing and didn't get to watch TV.

Today I drove to the park and ride in Oxford for the first time and took Owen to Waterstones, just him and me. We had a lovely time hanging out for hours at the bookshop, just like I used to. I'm glad he's a bookworm like us. In the evening, I drew a sketch of Harriet. She's so cute.

Today I took Owen to Darcy Bear soft play centre at Carterton, my first time driving with a Sat Nav, and I got very lost both on the way there and back. Harriet can say the word, Weetabix!

Sunday, 26th Aug 2018

Today we stayed home as it was rainy and had the heating on for the first time since spring. We even had hot chocolate by the fire.

Saturday, 25th Aug 2018

Today we went to Witney to collect more of Owen's school uniform. The children loved having lunch at M&S cafe.

Friday, 24th Aug 2018

Today I was a zombie as Harriet didn’t let me sleep much. Don’t remember what I did today.

Thursday, 23rd Aug 2018

Today I was exhausted again after being woken up by Owen in the night. I forgot having 2 kids (as opposed to just 1) greatly reduces our chances of sleeping through the night. Very tired today so watched telly instead of sketching or programming.  Maybe I don't like Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D so much anymore. There's something shallow and childish about it. Anyway should really get back to drawing daily!

Wednesday, 22nd Aug 2018

Today Owen's finally back after staying with grandparents for a few days. He said he didn't miss me!

Tuesday, 21st Aug 2018

Today I made a Pandan cake for Owen to have when he comes home tomorrow. Harriet cried and cried at 5am, so we were exhausted again.

Monday, 20th Aug 2018

Today we tried to wean Harriet off night feeding since Owen isn't here to be woken up by her crying. After the crying in the night, she woke up at 10:15am in the morning! My breasts were so full from skipping the night feed that after she drank from them in the morning, she threw up all over me.
