For some reason after a couple of glasses of wine my sleep isn't that good and I always wake up earlier than usual. Which is why at 6am I was sat in bed with a brew and my crochet.
It's a year today since Tom passed away. We didn't go to the cemetery but we did go and see Joan, who is fine. I did have a look through his box though and this is a photo of him when he was about Thomas' age. Can't see any similarities between the two of them but maybe others can.
My savings jar got a boost today. I saved £1.48 by buying Pringles from the £1 shop rather than Tesco, £2 on dog food and £5 because we passed on our usual nightcaps in the pub last night so the bill was less than normal.
I dropped Mum at the dentist this morning. She was there for one hour and came out with a filled tooth and a much lighter purse! And I finally got through to my surgery and made an appointment for a blood test next Monday. Then I rang the hairdressers for my usual cut and wash next Wednesday.
I've also bought school trousers for Thomas. I already have his shirts so all I need to get now is a winter coat and his shoes which I'll leave until nearer the time. He's only just gone from a size 2 to 3 so I doubt he'll grow, but you never know. Over the holidays the shirts and trousers will be washed several times so they don't feel new and he's comfortable wearing them.
Sienna is sleeping over tomorrow night so it's an early night for me and hopefully a lie in tomorrow morning to compensate for the night feeds I'll be doing. Mind you, as Amy seems to be in a routine of going to bed around 4am and not rising until gone noon, she could fit the midnight and 3am ones in no problem!
