Taking a photo every day this week has been tough.
I’ve been housebound since Little Mister’s Chicken Pox spots came out on Tuesday. I was hoping we’d have a lovely, chilled out half-term week enjoying the brighter weather. Instead the house has smelt of Calomine lotion and among the vast number of cuddles there’s also been lots of TV watching.
So this is my Week 07 / 52 – not one I’ll forget in a hurry!
Day 43 / 12 February – Football & Fairies
Sunday was spent in the park, playing with a football and fairies!
Day 44 / 13 February – Car Park Picnic
On our way to Waddesdon Manor to meet friends when Little Mister started to feel poorly; pale and shivering. He insisted we had our picnic before returning home, so I compromised & we ate it in the car! Technically our first picnic of the year!
Day 45 / 14 February – Surprised
A fabulous surprise from Dadtired. Totally unexpected!
Day 46 / 15 Feb – Chicken Pox
Poor Little Mister is struck down with Chicken Pox but this stuff seems to help a huge amount. It’s such an awful illness.
Day 47 / 16 Feb – Cutting corners
We’ve had a couple of a broken nights sleep as my poorly, unhappy boy struggled to cope with his Chicken Pox. I’ve spent the days administering medicines and rearranging Mademoiselle’s half-term holiday – she doesn’t need to be housebound too! So the slow cooker has been out for pretty much every meal!
Day 48 / 17 Feb – In Sympathy
Mademoiselle has been wonderful with her brother this week, taking time out to be gentle with him and play when he wants to. Today, as he was feeling a bit better, they got out every toy and turned the playroom upside down. It was good to have a bit of normality back. Shortly after this photo was taken Little Mister fell asleep on the sofa!
Day 49 / 18 Feb – Two Hours
I jumped at the chance to take Mademoiselle to gymnastics this morning, lol! It’s been a long week for all of us, so managing to grab half an hour in a coffee shop before watching the rest of gym practise felt very special!
I'm Tracey, nice to meet you. Mummyshire was 'born' three years ago after we moved from London to the Oxford countryside. Here I chart our journey adjusting to our new lives, the challenges of being in the countryside & surviving parenthood.
