This week my brain power has been zapped by the worst head cold I have ever encountered. I’ve been ill a couple of times over the last few months, which is really unlike me, and actually makes me quite cross – I am not good ill. My eyes and nose have been streaming, my glasses have been on, and I’ve been going to bed early when I can. Ru and O have been the same, but we are finally on the up – hooray! I did make it to the cinema (with ear plugs), and to the theatre (wiping my nose with a pair of clean toddler pants, as I’d forgotten to bring tissues), so all in all, it has been a great week…just not particularly productive.

R: I asked Ru what he fancied doing for his upcoming birthday, and he didn’t stop talking for about 45 minutes, and totally ignored any of my further questions. Spider-Man, Beauty & the Beast, jelly, ice cream, hot chocolate, cheese, racing games, breakfast juice, marshmallows and carrots. I wish I’d recorded it – he was on a roll.

O: Otto has slept 11pm through to 7am four times in a row this week. My hopes are high, I admit it.

    Hahaha I did laugh about you wiping your nose on the pants! I’m glad you’re on the mend and I do hope you’re soon fully recovered.

    That picture is gorgeous! Glad you are feeling better. I haven’t used a pair of pants to wipe my nose, but I have used some of the kids socks before.

    Sorry to hear you’ve been ill, sounds like you’ve had what I’ve had, it’s wiped me out! Lovely photo though, I love black and white. x #LivingArrows

    Lovely photo! Sorry to hear you’ve been ill. I’ve used one of Chase’s socks to wipe his nose before after he pulled it off and there wasn’t any tissue in sight… Big mistake though, as the following week he kept taking socks off the washing line to wipe his nose! 🙁 Haha. #livingarrows
