the 100th

This post marks my 100th post.  I really wanted to do something special to mark the occasion, unfortunately both girls are very ill.  So much so that we had to cancel the birthday party we should have gone to today, and I have had to send emails to all the groups we should be attending over the next week to cancel, as we won't be able to go.  I am not looking forward to calling nursery tomorrow but that's life with small children.

Instead with the weather nice I took the girls for a walk next to the stream in the village.  I wrapped them up warm and hoped that the fresh air would do them good.  Both girls are a little irritable at the moment and sleeping at random times so I hoped the fresh air would let them have a bit of a nap and getting out of the house I find always helps too.

My youngest fell asleep within 5 minutes of us setting off and it was not long before my eldest followed.  I know my eldest is therefore ill as she will only ever day nap when poorly.  I enjoyed the walk, it was really peaceful next to the stream and J even behaved himself.

When we returned home the girls stayed asleep just long enough for me to take down the decorations.  When my oldest woke up she was so upset that we had to put the tree away and kept saying Christmas coming soon.

I spent the rest of the afternoon playing with magnetic funny faces book, by top that publishing, with the girls.  The book has a selection of blank faces on which you can stick the magnetic features.  Its really good fun and the girls like to create different animals.  It also can teach them about different features different animals have.  We have a lot of fun playing with this book and the possibility of faces to create is endless.

I am hoping my girls feel better soon as I really don't like to see them ill.  Its really hard as they don't understand why they feel like they do and sometimes struggle to express themselves.  I know it will be at least a week before we see any improvement.   I only hope I can keep them as comfortable as possible until they do recover.

This day I love the 100th.

  1. Bless them, they do look not themselves but I'm sure with the mild weather the walk was a good thing for you and for them! I remember having 3 with chicken pox together and putting them all in the bike trailer and wheeling them off, not sure if it was more for my benefit or there's but I felt better afterwards! Thanks for linking up on your 100th post.

  5. Next time I'm ill, I might have a go at this magnetic funny faces book. Probably less stressful than playing on me Xbox.

    By the way, I looked up what Khoresh Gheimeh is... what an utterly BONKERS thing to to sell in a tin.

    Hope the girls get well soon.
