This week was all about sick kids. And an eighth birthday. Thankfully, or it would have been a very miserable week!
My husband was in the UK for most of the week, he flew out last Saturday, so I was expecting a quiet week just pottering about.
My younger son got sick on Saturday evening, choked with the cold. Sunday was a very slow day indeed. However, after taking himself to bed at 5.30pm and falling instantly asleep, he insisted that he was fine the next day and went to school. Which I was grateful for as I ran around getting stuff done, but horribly guilty for when I picked him up from school, looking white faced and exhausted.
Needless to say he didn’t go to school on Tuesday.
And then my little girl was sent home from school on Tuesday afternoon with a fever! So, Wednesday I had them both home, Thursday I kept the wee girl off again to be on the safe side.
Evenings were less smooth than normal and I ended up with a companion in the shape of a small girl in my bed for the week (apparently she’s just keeping me company while daddy is away so that I don’t get lonely *ahem*). What with that, the coughing and the fevers, my sleep was not of the sound variety!
So much for my quiet week, pottering about.
Oh, and it rained. A LOT.
Thank goodness for a birthday to look forward to. And thank goodness this cheeky chap was feeling much recovered in time to celebrate!
I’m exhausted. My husband is jet-lagged. We have a party to finish organising for tomorrow. I am mid cake baking as I type (it’s cooling). What a week!
At least every one is healthy(ish) again. Well, if you ignore the fact that my eldest is losing his voice…
But, the sun is shining. It has stopped snowing and raining. I’m hopeful that spring is, at last, in the air. And, even better, we have a short week then it’s SPRING BREAK!!
Hope you’ve all had a lovely week. Head over to my Instagram feed to see the rest of this week’s 365 photos…
