Never knew how much id hate the sun when i had a kid

Never knew how much id hate the sun when i had a kid

The weather is fabulous, hot hot hot. Normally id be loving it being a bit of a sun worshipper but with a new born its hell!!! 
I cannot keep the poor kid cool. He wont sleep upstairs as its beyond hot.

The gro egg of doom taunts me with its red glow and sad face on a nightly basis at the moment

Dont get me wrong its a brilliant bit of kit but at 3am when the boy wont settle, i can feel it judging me!!! 

To move on from the weather thiugh….

Yesterday was Fathers Day and Mr Me got to celebrate AT LAST.

Little T got him an engraved box with lots of pictures round the side, and a card of course.

Mr Me fancied lunch out so off we went to the Trafford Centre as we were able to control Little Ts temperature somewhat there. Whilst waiting for a lift, a lady asked me if i was behind Confessions of Little Miss PMA!!!! She told me she had been reading for years and recognised us from pictures. Id been spotted. Im famous! I was so taken aback but so so grateful to her. You dont know it but you made our day, so, thank you!! 

We had a lovely lunch and i got my pushing present…

I still cant get my wedding and engagement rings on so this is a place holder until i can. I love it!!! 

Emotionally ive been feeling much more positive. Until this morning when i was knackered due to having 2hrs sleep and Little T just whinging for nearly 2 hours. I couldve broken down next to him. I had no patience so i walked away, made him a bottle, and he eventually fell asleep. I got an hr and a half too which made all the difference. When i woke up i was refreshed and able to deal with grumpy Little T. Its amazing how much brighter things seem when youve got 3.5hrs sleep in your pocket. Even if it is broken. Happy Days.

We have been to baby clinic today, Little T is now 8lb 15oz and finally able to start using the sleeping bags we bought as he kicks off blankets. Of course its now too bloody hot to use such a thing but itll be great when it cools down. Poor lad is currently just sleeping in a vest at night. During the day hes in a nappy under a muslin. Usually hates being naked but thats how hot it is.

The poor fur babies are beyond themselves too.

Splash is camped out by an additonal water bowl and i found Smudge in the bath yesterday!! Id hate to have a fur coat on in this heat!!! 

I definitely feel more confident at this parenting thing, we are getting out almost everyday, it no longer takes an hour just to leave the house. I can read Little Ts cues more easily, hes gaining weight and most importantly ive kept him alive for 5 weeks!!!!

Im still overwhelmed by it all sometimes. Its not how i imagined but i am being rewarded. We think he is close to smiling which will be amazeballs. Its much harder than i imagined. I didnt expect my relationship with Mr Me to change as much as it has either.

We will be going on date night this week just to talk and reconnect. We miss each other for sure and Mr Me did confess he was struggling which actually made me feel oodles better as i thought it was just me. Itll be nice to have one on one time for a few hours to remember we are not just parents. Plus im looking forward to a few cocktails 🍾πŸ₯‚πŸΉπŸΈ

Im baacckkk (in Cyprus)

Im baacckkk (in Cyprus)

Hello from a very sunny and very hot Cyprus. Must’ve been 40Β°C+ today (my phone says 35Β° but i don’t believe it)

We arrived yesterday evening. Flight was great and transfer was ready and waiting…in a tiny car with 2 massive suitcases, funny!

We took a different route to normal but by george it was quicker and we went through a village where Turks and Greeks cohabitate which is unusual! Car was ready and waiting at villa too. All good so far…

Then Mum and I got into the mix πŸ˜‚
Within half an hr, a cushion and a chair had blown into the pool which i then had to rescue!

We set out for dinner and it took upwards of half an hr to figure out how to get back to the main road…it was still daylight too πŸ˜‚

Went for dinner, got back in the car, no sat nav as phone had died so it took me another 40 minutes to find the supermarket and then over an hr and a half to find the villa again. Pitch black roads with no signage are to blame. We drove past the street we need to use at least 4 times as the only thing we were told was to look for a tiny sign which is black and white and not lit at night!!!!

But we got home….in the end!

Today has been a weird one as when i took my antibiotic this morning it sent me into a throwing up frenzy…coupled with the heat…not a good time. Eventually a nap and a sandwich sorted me out but, yuk! Im fine now and just need to be more careful tomorrow.

I think im having a scan tomorrow…im very dubious about my lining but the team have told me to stay positive and given all the meds, im sure it will be fine.

Just about to get ready to go out but i have to say, i don’t think i could manage a cycle in the heat of July/august so im soooo glad i got to come back now.

Love, Little Miss PMA xxx
