Saturday 20 February 2016 We have a super new alarm system, very secure and easy to use. Like every alarm system when we leave we have an exact number of seconds to leave and secure the house before the alarm is triggered. Today it was easy; H couldn’t wait to get into the car with […]

Tuesday, 16 February 2016 – I would be a millionaire! I enjoyed a fairly smooth morning. H asked for toast for breakfast, saying “please” and actually ate it. She sat in the car seat happily singing “Jack and Jill” and listening to “The First Hippopotamus on the Moon” by David Walliams. She loved it and […]

H still has a cough and a green stream constantly coming from her nose but she is happy and lovely all day. We have a day meeting friends and family in a children’s play centre. […]

Monday 1 February to Thursday 4 February 2016 It’s been a busy week with very little sleep. H has recovered from the sickness bug but she now has a cough to challenge mine.  She coughs through the night, so of course, I lay awake listening.  When it gets too much and she starts to cry I’m […]

Tuesday 26 January 2016 Got up at 6.00am, organised and took all medication, showered, dressed and applied makeup before 7.00am. We had time for thirty minutes of cuddles in front of the tv before leaving the house. H was perfect. This is the way forward. Sarah has indigestion. She has my full sympathy. Perhaps chocolate […]

Monday 25 January 2016 I have an early morning meeting. Hubby left the house for 6.15am. H didn’t want to get up. She didn’t want to get dressed nor did she want to put on her coat and shoes. She wanted to play. The five minutes of Peppa Pig jigsaw fun on my bedroom floor […]

Friday 22 January 2016 4.00am It turns out that H is poorly. I hate it when she’s poorly; but a little part of me is relieved that this is a reason behind her behavior yesterday, isn’t either a) that she doesn’t like Mummy; or b) I’m failing miserably in my attempt to raise a happy […]

Thursday 21 January 2016 It’s extremely cold today. Hubby left by 6.20 am. I feel guilty about his twenty minutes’ walk to the station and vow to buy him a fluffy hat, gloves and scarf if I make it out of the office at lunch time. My mind wanders across the shopping centre to Starbucks. […]

Wednesday 20 January 2016 The morning started well. Last night I arranged H’s clothes in a lovely neat pile ready for the morning. I dictated correspondence on an urgent file and placed the file in a bag by the door next to my handbag. The dictaphone was safely returned to my handbag. I even managed […]
