Yet another building with the same cladding as Grenfell Tower.

(If you’re not from the UK/don’t know about it, it is a tower block that caught fire in 2017 and sadly 72 people died.)

#IWasUpAndHadFedBAndChangedHerAndWashedHerWithAFlannel

Smashing it, I know.

#IHadMadeUpANewSongForHerAboutWhenIDancedInAMusicVideoWhilstIWas6MonthsPregnantWithHer

This one.

I love how I just randomly sing things that I like the sound of, and then manage to turn them into a little song. I am sure I’ve stole the tune from something. I will try to do a little Instagram video of it soon.

#ItIsFunMakingUpSongsForHerAndIHadSungItAbout20TimesAsSheSeemedToBeSingingAlong

I recorded a video of B singing along to it and sent it to Tiago. It also helps me remember the songs I make up. For some reason I kept forgetting the tune of this one.

#AndThenTheDoorWent

Of course.

#IScrambledToFindMyUsualDressButICouldNot

Obviously I found it later hanging on the bathroom door.

#ThenIFranticallyTriedToGrabSomethingFromTheWardrobe

Wasting so much time scanning to and fro looking for something quick to throw on.

#IChuckedOnANursingDressThatIHaveNotWornYetButItWillBeGoodForTheAutumnWhenItIsLessHot

It seemed like a wise choice.

#GotToTheDoorAndRealisedHowShortItWasButJustOpenedTheDoor

A few quick strong tugs on it before I went for the handle… I really didn’t think it was that short before.

#ThereWereAboutFourGuysThereNotStoodVeryFarApart

Hello social distancing…

#IJustOpenedItAndBackedAwayBecauseOfSocialDistancingAndAll

…Well, none from them and all from me.

#HeLookedALittleShockedAndSaidItWouldTakeAMinute

I did look a right state.

#IJustSaidOkayOkayAndRanBackToTheBedroomToScrambleToPutSomeLeggingsOn
#ByTheTimeIHadPutThemOnHeHadAlreadyFinishedAndJustShutTheDoor

Great! I was glad it was all done so soon, so that we could get on with our day. I hate that feeling of not knowing when someone will knock on the door…

#ILookedInTheMirrorAndRealisedHowMessyMyHairWas
#HeProbablyThoughtHeHadWokenMeUpOrSomething

Yep, I looked a state. I immediately headed back to B and took a picture of myself, so I could laugh at myself in this post.

(I think I have a bit of a bogey sticking out of my nose too – great!)

#AndBWasBeingQuietSoHeWouldNotHaveKnownIHadABaby

When I want her to cry she doesn’t…

#LolIDoNotReallyCare

Hence why I am showing it to the (potential) world. (Who really looks at my stuff?)

Though now I know this it seems like always has pink eyebrows. She wakes up from a nap and has pink eyebrows.

I’m still working on seeing how she can take longer naps without being in a carrier, in the pushchair being pushed or asleep on T or I. She does occasionally nap for more than 20 minutes in her cot during the day, but it does seem rare. I will persevere…

(I wrote this on the day I took the picture I think. Napping and sleep has improved – stay tuned!)
