Just a quick update here, unfortunately I’m going to need a little bit more time away. This cold that has been floating around our house has decided not to be nice at all and has turned into a particularly nasty little bug. All four kids have a cough, the boys being the worst. The babe is the healthiest one of all with only a minor little cough, and I put that down to the fact that she is still breastfeeding, what amazing powers breast milk has. We spent the afternoon at the doctors office yesterday and came away with prescriptions for antibiotics for the three big kids. Now I am all for the non medical route of healing things when we are able to, but I do believe there is a time and a place for medicine. Our two middle children both have ear infections, our son with a double ear infection. So today’s plans include lots of rest, staying in pj’s all day, and lots of yummy “sick” foods. I’ll make up some chicken noodle soup for lunch and the kids have requested fruit popsicles and our daughter really wants a grilled cheese. We’ll read lots of The Wishing Chair Collection by Enid Blyton, and throw in a movie later as it is family movie night. The last two days have been absolutely glorious weather wise, in the fifties which is just what we needed. I was able to throw the windows open and get some fresh air circulating in here. Lo, and behold, when I woke up this morning I was greeted by another winter wonderland, snow everywhere and more coming down. Oh well, at least it’ll make it feel cozier snuggling up in blankets. Thanks for being so patient while I’ve been taking this break. I was hoping to get a lot accomplished around the house, but the whole time has been spent taking care of my ill family. I’m hoping that they’ll turn a corner by next week, but I will pop in on Monday to give you another update. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend, and stay warm, and well.

    Hope you’re all starting to feel a bit better now. The weather here in the UK has definitely turned a corner lately too – although the wind is still pretty nippy.
