This week has been a difficult one, and taking any photos hasn’t been on the agenda. Otto has been ill, but with a few other things in the mix – it has been a hard. I also think children know when you’re distracted, so quite often this doesn’t help either. I only took this photo because it was one of the few occasions Otto was happy! At the same time we’re all fine and it has been lovely to be outside so much – we’re just used to plodding along nicely.

R: Ru has had at least one nosebleed every day this week. I think it’s because of the heat, and it’s usually during the night. He has also started calling me a ‘filthy frumptious beast’, all thanks to Roald Dahl (!) One afternoon I found him asleep under the sofa dressed as an Ewok and it really tickled me.

O: Otto crying has been the soundtrack to my week. He has been up all hours, and a real challenge getting him to nap or sleep.

    Sorry you’ve had such a bad week. I really hope that this one is a better one for you. My dad had a lot of nose bleeds as a kid too when it was warm – weird huh??
    Hope Otto feels better xx

    I hope Otto is better now and nosebleeds in children must be one the scariest things for them – and awful to clean up! I hope that you are having a better week this week. That photo is gorgeous! x
