Thursday was my birthday! Because of current restrictions we couldn't meet the entire family, which being honest was actually quite nice! D and I went for a lovely walk, and took our friend's dog. When we got home D made hot chocolate and we drank it in front of the fire whilst eating far too much cake, as D had made so much cake for Halloween and my birthday. We got a pizza for dinner and ate it in bed whilst watching a movie. It was like a little date night which was lovely. I think D has arranged for my parents to visit this weekend, and I know Mum has insisted that she does the cooking! My period arrived this morning which I'm annoyed about, as one of my apps had really got my hopes up as my BBT had dropped then increased again and it was telling me this was a good sign. I'm not feeling very well so I'm kind of glad my parents and D have insisted I'm "not allowed" to help them with cooking or chores because of it being my birthday. I didn't sleep well last night either, so I've spent the last hour or so making up little Halloween goody bags for our nieces and nephews as we won't be seeing them and they can't go trick or treating. Each of them has just a small amount of sweets (per their parent's requests as they usually get a lot of sweets and chocolate off everyone else) as well as a few small toys or activities, and a warm pair of gloves each! We usually make them goody bags for Halloween anyway, because we prefer this over giving them a ton of sweets, but this year we added a couple of extra things as it's been a strange old year. One of D's sisters said not to bother making goody bags for their children as they felt they are "too old" for them, but the children told us they love the goody bags and specifically requested them! So I've made them anyway. D asked last night if he could please have a Halloween goody bag too so I've made up a little bag of sweets and added in a couple of surprises for him. Halloween is his second favourite time of year (Christmas being his absolute favourite) and he really is like a small child sometimes. He wants to watch The Addams Family today and has declared a pajama day as he can't dress up for Halloween! I've almost completed Christmas shopping and D is going to help me wrap everything in the next week or two so we can post them off as I doubt we'll see much family over Christmas this year!
