All three of us have been suffering this week from illness. It started off with my daughter having conjunctivitis and a cold. Then spread to the rest of us who have been waking up feeling like we’ve swallowed a tennis ball. This has led to my heart going out to my little one, while she feels sorry for herself. Yes I’ve got eye drops, Calpol, Baby Vix you name it I’ve either got it in the house or thinking about getting it in to help her. I’ve also been thinking about what it means to be type 2 diabetic and questioning whether I should be getting my flu jab even though the doctor hasn’t called me in for it.
At present I’m on a diet and fitness controlled regime but it’s not easy to keep going. I’ve managed to swap my drinks over to flavoured mineral waters which state 0 of everything on the label and love the Peach flavoured one. It reminds me of Archers and Lemonade but of course without the alcohol and much healthier too.
I’ve loved the recent seasonal bookshelf blog posts that keep appearing on numerous people’s pages. I hope to one day do this with my daughter and have already been thinking of where to put up shelves in her room to house the books for her. I have also made a start on collecting The First Reading Series of books by Usborne for her as out of all the different learning to read schemes these look to keep in great condition.
Another type of post that I have been seeing quite a lot of recently is that of the capsule wardrobe. I wrote a bit about it here. This has led to me purchasing a couple of items including a gorgeous red coat that will keep me warm over winter.
This little project also led to our latest diy and us sleeping on the sofa bed in the living room oops! I’m sure the space in there could be put to better use so I started taking everything out and then feeling overwhelmed by it all!
That’s all from me this week, what have you been up to?
