I went to help out my old boss for the day, leaving Dad2BabyInsomniac in charge of Iyla for the day. He did an amazing job and I even came home to a cooked dinner! I need to remember to leave outfits out for Iyla though as I can’t believe what he took her out dressed in!
We went up to Ikea to buy a desk. It was great fun and Iyla loved it. Ikea is just the best place, although by the end I always start feeling a bit disorientated due to the lack of windows in the place. On Tuesday evening I had college and had to massage two clients which was pretty tough! I was absolutely exhausted when I got home.
I woke up in the middle of Tuesday night feeling really sick. Then after a terrible nights sleep I woke up feeling awful. I must have picked up Iyla’s tummy bug and spent the whole day on the verge of puking. Dad2BabyInsomniac’s mum, sister and two nephews came round for lunch (which I couldn’t eat!) and then they took Iyla round to the park so that I could have a rest. It was very much appreciated and by the time she got home, Dad2BabyInsomniac was back to cook dinner. In the evening I felt a bit better and ate some snacks, it was a big mistake and I then had to lie on the bathroom floor nearly being sick for half an hour.
I went to help my old boss again. It kind of makes me wish that I had a part-time job. I love spending time with Iyla but she is 18 months old now and I really like having a bit of time to do something for me. I was going to start looking for a job as Dad2BabyInsomniac hasn’t had much work lately but that evening he lined some up and seeing as he can earn nearly four times as much as I can, it seems silly for him to be the one who stays at home. I finish my course in a few months though and I am looking forward to starting work now!
Today was the last day helping my old boss. I came home to dinner again and I think it was good for us to swap roles for a couple of days. We now have a better understanding of what it is like to do each others job.
We went shopping then one of my school friends popped round in the afternoon. We made fajitas and watched The Voice in the evening.
We went to Lyme Regis and made the most of the fact it wasn’t raining for once! It was actually a really sunny day in the end and we had a lovely time.
