This week you’d be forgiven for thinking that I stayed in bed all week and didn't come out except to attend the needs of the babies particularly as hubby has been on holiday. While this would possibly of been the best thing for me I get so bored resting among the sheets that I've felt motivated to get up and do things.
So dosed up on antibiotics that the doctor gave me on Monday (to take three times a day) I have been motivated to help hubby with things around the house and even ventured out and about. Crazy probably but I’d rather get up and do things than go mad with cabin fever. The weather has certainly helped had it been rain showers I'm sure we would have stayed in snuggled under a big blanket and watched even more tv.
I've been active online linking up with the usual linkys and read some great posts including this one from the delightful author (Dawn) of Rhyming with Wine's To Twiggy ........The Stick post. I can just imagine being a little one and running through the forest with a stick in hand can't you? Her poems never fail to put a smile on my face and I love her work as much as that of Julia Donaldson and Nick Park. Talking of which I recently treated my eldest to the books The Singing Mermaid and The Scarecrows Wedding eldest has been introduced to Timmy Time too.
Of course blogging is not all about reading and writing posts right? There’s also a fair amount to be learnt on social media platforms and then there’s Pinterest. I've been taking a break from putting my energy into Twitter and have been working on Pinterest working through Jen Stanbrook’s five day course. It has been rather enjoyable and has led me to tidy up a few posts here and there to make them more beneficial for readers.
There have been so many things hearing wise this week from the little ones chirping too hubby asking me questions despite the need for me to really rest my voice. You really don’t realise how much you use it and rely on it to get through until you've lost it or most of it! I wonder how people who can’t speak really do get on in society - it must be very difficult for them. One thing I was surprised about with was when I popped into the surgery on the Monday morning they told me they were running triage and were telling me to go home and wait for a phone call from the doctor who called me back into the surgery later that day. I had to give the phone to my husband as I was really struggling to talk! Ok so it’s difficult to call going to the doctors a little love but we do need to be our own cheerleaders right and practice selfcare.
Of course you all know by now how much I enjoy creating things and this is in grained in myself care practices. This week we chose to create a windsock for the garden inspired by reading one of the recent editions of a baby magazine. In fact they have a whole section in this month’s issue that it is very tempting to try out some of the other suggestions they have featured but we will see.
Of course another of myself care practices is to put on comfortable clothing. So yes you've guessed it I've taken to pulling on my comfy socks, leggings, dresses and jumpers. I also love my little black boots that I got in TK Maxx.
A trip to Henley resulted in the girls having an art table and chairs for £15. These are Mammut and originally came from Ikea. I also picked up those Julia Donaldson books there too.
How has your week been?
