Half Term Holidays

I just love the first weekend when we break up from school/nursery school/work, a truly magical time; a Sunday when you don't have to do the iroing!! I look forward to the coming days of us all being together.

This last week has been plagued with illness, first Sebastian with a three day temp of 39.7, on the first day I gave him paracetamol, plenty of cuddles and fluids and thought he'd be ok but alas, oh no, off we went to the doc's and my poor baby boy had tonsils that were meeting in the middle and weeping puss!It looked and smelt horrific, didn't put him off eating though!!

Once Sebastian's antibiotics had begun to take effect and I could put him down for a moment or two to myself I became unwell. I started just needing to go and pee far too often, mmmm, little cystitis I thought. Off to the pharmacy to get some powders, doubled fluid intake, got some cranberry etc.... Within six hours I had a raging temp, could not stand straight for the pain in my abdomen and lower back, I could only pass small amounts of urine and the blood content was high! Very scary how quickly it took over. Sorry, probably far too much information but I have never had a 'water infection' before and I can, hand-on-heart, say I have never experienced pain like it. I'm not a wuss, I have birthed four children on two paracetamol for goodness sake! Anyway I managed to contact the out of hours service in the middle of the night and a lovely local GP saw me at the crack of dawn the following morning and confirmed I had a bladder infection but he didn't think it had quite reached my kidneys. Mega antibiotics that have made me really sick but at least I can pee again!!

But inbetween all the medical drama we have enjoyed snuggly movie afternoons when the weather has been wet;



We've enjoyed fun in the sun at the park;


We found big sticks;


Composed poems;



And did butterfly impressions;


We had mini tea parties;



Swept the back garden in our sister's party heels;


Does my bum look big in this? Think I may have lost one;


Hope you all enjoyed the break too?

I'm sorry to hear that you and Sebastian have been poorly but glad you're on the mend now.

Glad you got the post up - what was it in the end that stopped it working? Water infections are horrendous aren't they? I get them regularly and once it got to my kidneys which really is nasty :( Glad you are all on the mend now x

Sorry to hear you've been unwell but it sounds like half term has been fun nevertheless.
