Though it feels like only yesterday since I started the BA Top Up Degree, we have now finished our first term! It's crazy how quickly time flies when you are having fun! When Logan was first born and I started my last your of my HND in September 2013 there were a few months that were incredibly rough. Learning to be a mum for the first time, dealing with a child with Colic (I think thats how the doctors spell it!) and then also, getting used to being a student again after nearly 2 years off! Back then I remember thinking, 'oh next year will be easier' but oh my goodness, I thought wrong!
Logan is now 15 months old I think, (I lost count after 12!) and he is turning into such a character. There are days he has me in absolute stitches so on one hand it's a nice break from the stresses of coursework, on the other hand, he can be the cutest distraction!
He is so very close to walking now...when I say close...I mean he can walk but he is too lazy and would prefer to have is zimmer frame aka baby walker. Honest to god some days I think he is a miniature grandad! I love his laugh and the way he smiles when he is sleeping, which I take as a good sign that I'm not doing too bad as I'm not giving him nightmares...though I do wish he would sleep more...I feel tired constantly!
So it is Christmas in 11 days (Holy Cow I Didn't Realise Until I Checked!) I have done approximately zero wrapping but atleast all the presents are brought...which might explain the appalling state of my bank account. It was like this on Logan's birthday. I think, subconsciously, I feel quilty for leaving him as often as I do so I tend to over compensate my boy with gifts in hope that he won't hate me when he is older. Only time will tell if that was a mistake or not!
Over my holiday's I will be focusing as much of my attention as possible, on my dissertation. It's not until you have to write in 'proper english' that you realise how appalling your writing as got! Hashtag THANK GOD FOR SPELL CHECK! Hopefully I do alright, I think I am suffering from writers block at the moment which is why I am probably doing this post which is completely irrelevant too my dissertation topic! I know what will happen...my fiance will ask me what time I went to sleep. My response will be, 3/4am (pretty standard for me) His next question will be...did you get a lot done...and that is probably the only times in our relationship where I just have to say a white lie. In my defense, its only to avoid the, why don't you sleep argument!
Anyways, probably should be getting on with it now.
Merry Christmas All and To All Goodnight.
