On Wednesday at WW I had only shed half a pound, still it was the right direction. I trawled around Sainsbury's and when I got home, forgot to unpack some of the shopping. Daughter came round to collect something which has been hanging in the wardrobe in her old room for getting on for 6 years.
She stayed for a while chatting. and Nathaniel played with some of the toys I have here. He also watched some 'in the Night garden' on iplayer. I told Daughter that I must go out to get the tyres checked, but just then husband arrived back from his monthly trip to Bristol, so she stayed chatting to him whilst I took the Fiesta in. The tyres were all fine, but they discovered that something had come loose under the car, and there was a hole in part of the exhaust, so I got those fixed instead.
I came home and Daughter was still here, but after a while Nathaniel became fractious and nothing would please him. he hadn't had much of a nap, so daughter took him home and reported he was fast asleep on returning home. During the course of the evening I discovered there was still one item of cold stuff lurking in a shopping bag, so without further ado opened the fridge door and tossed it in.
I picked Nat up at 8 am on Thursday,and during the course of the morning he showed me that he knows which button turns on the TV. He then handed me the remote, pulled my legs apart and attempted to climb on my lap! Talk about determined! I took him for a walk in the buggy, and he ate a good lunch. I had a jacket potato with Coronation chicken, bought in Sainsbury's.
After his nap, I let him watch 'in the Night Garden'
When husband came home I offered to try and sort a meal out for him, I could just about stand the sight of food but he wasn't hungry and later he did himself sardines on toast. He did bring me a hot water bottle for my icy feet. I slept better on Friday night, slept late. The family had managed to get Nat into a nursery for the day as an emergency and he appears to have enjoyed the experience, although it was quite pricey, and by no means the most expensive.
I managed a quick car trip into town on Saturday, but soon wanted to come home. Sadly Saturday night was back to not sleeping, must have slept too much on Friday. We were at Daughter's for lunch on Sunday, after an encouraging sermon from our pastor, who had returned form teaching abroad. I managed a small lunch. Nathaniel was quite tetchy he may be teething again, but after a while we managed to coax smiles out of him. I couldn't stop yawning, so we decided to skip the evening service, and Mum in Law phoned me for a change.
