    Joseph has slept most of the day today, he's obviously exhausted. Potentially I suppose if he's making a big development his body needs sleep to process it. I'm hoping this doesn't mean he'll be awake all night. We're wondering about using a hungry milk for his bedtime feed to see if he will go through a bit longer, and maybe settle better after his feed in the early hours. I don't want to give formula in the early hours as that's the feed we'll want to lose first. I left Joseph for the first time today, hubby had him while I went to an afternoon tea for someone's hen do. It was lovely, although it did feel like something was missing.

    Lovely dress Pinky.

    Housey duties done, just waiting on the laundry to finish, it's a white wash so takes a long time, then that can go on the line and another load in. Cleaned the garden, washed down the patio, hoovered and think I have lost half a stone in sweat alone!!!!

    Only because I had to get up before 6am as the girls had to leave the house by 6 for school trips. Thought I may as well get on with things before it got too warm.

    Hi ladies, just popped out to grab some lunch and drop a parcel off at the post office... it's scorching out there!! Office is a nightmare as when it's cold out it's freezing and when it's hot it's an absolute sauna... boss has said I can work from home whenever I want to this week if it gets too hot, might take him up on that!

    Busy week for me this week so would help having some extra time at home to sort out bits and bobs.

    Afternoon ladies, hope you all had lovely weekends.

    I went to Birmingham on a friends hen do but started with a cold on Friday night so was pretty rubbish for the hen on Saturday. We had a good time but I know I would have more 'into it' had I been feeling 100%

    Such a warm day today, our open plan office is horrible but thankfully I have my own office so I have the door close, windows open and fan directly on me so I'm not too bad. Might sit in the garden for dinner this evening :)

    I've been sitting here with the windows open and fan on and it's still not enough, a lot hotter than yesterday. If it stays like this over the weekend I'm going to have to find something nice to do with the children. Maybe a trip to the zoo. I'll be so glad when the nursery year is over

    Morning all

    Ate really late last night as was too hot, drank some wine in the garden and slept rough as because of it. Off to work this morning on an early so will catch some sunshine when I get back home. Hopefully I should hear from the school today, I think they are worrying a little.
