Quite frequently things don’t go to plan, it can be for many reasons, work, weather, illness and it can get you down. This weekend everything has gone Pete Tong but I decided to try and make the most of it and not dwell on the negative.
Friday morning my car went in to the garage to get the air con fixed (and to look at why we were using so much oil) but unfortunately it didn’t happen due to a crisis with the car before us. So me and LB got ferried around by both his nannies and had a lovely day catching up with them both.
Me and B had an Anniversary meal out planned, babysitter organised, nice restaurant picked (a surprise for him) then his work phone goes mental and he has to work late (and all day Saturday). Gutted as I was really looking forward to some quality time together. However being self employed when the work comes in he has to go and I fully understand and appreciate that (especially with a new baby due in 11 weeks). Instead when he finally got in we ordered a Chinese, drank non alcoholic wine and discussed baby names in our comfies. We may even have agreed on a few!
We had a village fete planned for an afternoon of fun on Saturday with friends. Still no car meant the 30 min drive wasn’t possible and LB woke up with a headache and a temp of 40 at 4am, so he ended up sleeping with us (bring on the leaking wet nappy and a load of washing to sort) then we spent all day on the sofa watching films and cartoons, while dosing him up on nurofen and checking his temp regularly. The fruit loop still wanted a blanket and seriously to see him this still is crazy.
I made us a favourite lunch after he wouldn’t eat breakfast or ice cream but one piece of cucumber was all he managed! Luckily he’s drinking well. This once again is frustrating, however I have spent the day on my phone (I’m not allowed to pick up my book, diary, laptop but apparently the phone is ok) blogging, sorting out my summer school that starts on Monday, advertising and flicking through social media and texting friends.
B didn’t come in until late as his work went on longer than he’d hoped so plans for the evening went out the window too, so I took the opportunity to lay with my boy and have a nap for a few hours before getting up and cracking on with some coursework which got me very motivated with my business, I was awake till 1am being creative and productive.
Then Saturday/Sunday LB slept from 6pm-6.15am and we had a lazy morning in bed all together. Every time I look at LB recently I think how grown up he’s looking, how beautiful he is and how lucky I am. These little moments are so precious. B had to go back to work again-boo-so me and LB headed off to do our weekly shop, something I was looking forward to doing alone but he was so well behaved and helpful it was a pleasure. We then came home and I took the opportunity to clean out the fridge before putting in the new food (a job I’ve been meaning to do all week).
Now we are sat on the sofa watching Bugs Life, LBs temperature is back up and all he wants to do is lay on me! Instead of thinking how unproductive my day is being, I’m going to enjoy cuddles with my boy while being lazy, as two full weeks of summer school kick off tomorrow morning! 6 hrs a day with 6-18 yr olds, singing and dancing and working towards a performance, but at 30 weeks pregnant it’s gonna be exhausting so resting is going to be important.
I hope you have all had a restful and fun weekend!
