Not a successful day!

My plans for today were originally to spend the dsy with my friend and her 6 month baby boy but yesterday she rang to say that he had a temperature so it was best not to chance it with Beanie Boy. I was gutted but it made sense so I arranged to meet my good friend Karin (Cafebebe) for a walk,lunch and playtime in the park for the girls.

The day starred well when Beanie Boy slept through from 12midnight to 6.15am!!!!! I felt slightly more human and looked forward to the day ahead. I decided that today would be the maiden voyage for our Phil & Teds pushchair. I went out to the garage and loaded up the car before heading on our way. We arrived at our meeting place and I put Beanie Boy into his cocoon in the buggy before I realised that I had left Little Bean’s seat at home in the garage – duh!! I called Karin and explained my error before heading home as the walk would be too far for Little Bean and was on a busy main road. We arranged to meet in our home town so that I could go home and collect the seat.

This time when I arrived at the meeting place I realised that although I had taken the seat, I hadn’t taken the elbows that connected the seat to the pushchair! This time the park was only kist over the road so I didn’t totally ruin our new plans. Unfortunately both Little Bean and Little Miss were in a cranky mood so there were a few tears and tantrums, along with years from Karin when I asked her to be Godmother to Beanie Boy – I think they were tears of joy!

Finally when we returned home, i had just managed to give Little Bean her dinner and put her down for her nap so that I could have a bit of ‘me’ time whilst Beanie Boy was sleeping, when what should happen big a power cut! It lasted for two hours!! The power came back kist as both children awoke from their sleep! I feel cheated!!!

      I think that’s why I was so annoyed with myself, I really wanted to prove that I could do it and NOT be stuck at home. Oh well, must put less pressure on myself and try again next week!
