It’s been a week dominated by my younger son being endlessly ill.
Here’s our week in pictures…
Day 8 – Sunday 8th January – my daughter was feeling very sad about the panto being over, so we want a wander round the shops with her vouchers (and she didn’t spend any!). And I was pleased to see daffodils appearing in the garden as I thought my husband had dug them all up along with the weeds when he worked on the garden last year.
Day 9 – Monday 9th January – my younger son had his school uniform on and we were literally on the way out of the house, when we realised he wasn’t well enough for school. So he fell asleep for four hours. And I actually left the house to work – so the proper shoes were required!
Day 10 – Tuesday 10th January – I’m pleased to say my son was well enough for school and I was back to working at home. I’ve also set myself the challenge of turning this new-looking teddy into one as scruffy as my daughter’s beloved Teddy, so she has an alternative for her school residential and Scout camp.
Day 11 – Wednesday 11th January – my son was off school again and slept until 1pm – six hours after he gets up for school! I was back to working on my children’s books, with a 500 page YA novel which is remarkably like Harry Potter, but with the f word in it.
Day 12 – Thursday 12th January – a very rainy day, in which my son managed to wake up at 11am. He just doesn’t seem to be able to shake this illness off! It’s almost impossible to see in this picture, but there is snow falling – which fell for about 30 seconds.
Day 13 – Friday 13th January – we woke up to the lightest dusting of snow and my son went back to school again. He was pale and breathless as he left the house, so I was sceptical about whether it was the right thing for him to do. But, remarkably, he not only made it through the school day, but through a birthday party too!
Day 14 – Saturday 14th January – a frosty, sunny morning and I started the day with Parkrun as usual. This year I’m determined to miss less Parkruns! There were times last year when other stuff got in the way too much. I was very pleased to be the third female across the line today – equalling my record, but with far more runners today – 455!
