Last Saturday and Sunday I just about lost my voice due to a sore throat, cough and a cold. It finally came back fully yesterday, but I really don’t understand how parents with really quiet voices cope. Win couldn’t hear what I was saying to him unless he was right next to him, which let’s face it – isn’t very often. Both inside the house and outdoors, it was a bit of a nightmare and I feel like I’ve been shouting all week, just to be heard! Quite funny though.
Ru hasn’t been well either, but distraction seemed to be the best tonic, so we’ve just powered on and it’s been lovely. We met my mum in York yesterday and had such a wonderful day out.
On a very morbid note Jared and I have finally finished discussing arrangements (practical and financial) for when one of us dies. Our life insurance and chronic illness cover is sorted and Jared has written me a very nice letter entitled ‘What To Do If I Die’ which I’ve read a few times. He’s a financial advisor and I’m quite relieved that I know what options I have if he dies, because I literally know nothing about finance! One of us dying is something we’ve really talked about over the last year…but we’ve still got to finalise what will happen if both of us die. I feel a bit reckless for not organising it all before now – Win is 3 and a half.
‘Downton Abbey’ and ‘The Great British Bake Off’. Cliché, I know, but they both make me feel more connected to being British. The same feeling I get when I watch ‘Call the Midwife’.
After months of Rufus calling Winston “Du”, he can finally say “Win”, and it made my week!
We’ve been making a few things this week, but I will documenting them in a separate blog post. Win however, has been asking me to make ‘desserts’ a lot this week – just about every day. Plain yoghurt, bananas, frozen berries, chia seeds and honey. Both boys love them!
I did manage a Styling the Seasons post too.
I know the weather has been confusing, but how absolutely gorgeous at the same time? Dewy grass, foggy mornings that clear to bright blue skies and warm sunshine – completely stunning. Layers have been essential this week – my crazy coatigan has made an appearance too and so had my favourite Zara scarf.
Ru and I spent a peaceful morning at Fairburn Ings. I’ve never taken him by himself before, but the dynamic was so different minus Winston. We moved a lot slower, watched the ducks, ate blackberries and generally bumbled along.
Have a really super weekend!
