What a rollercoaster week it’s been in our household !
Sickness has run rampant over here and there were some fragile moments where I thought I was going to lose my head.
I, for one am glad that it’s Friday – not because the weekend is around the corner (like that makes a difference to us mums…), but because it looks like the boys are finally on the mend.
Linking back to the lovely Shae at Yay For Home! for my list of “Things I Know”
Starting with the obvious:
Dealing with sick twins is really, really, REALLY hard work. Due to his wheezy cough Little K has been on asthma preventer medication as well as ventolin. In the meantime, Little N has had a nose running like a crazy tap and was up and down with a fever. It’s been heartbreaking to see them in such discomfort; not being able to understand what’s going on with their little bodies.
Staying all day in your pyjamas is one thing. Actually having a morning shower, then changing into a fresh pair of pyjama bottoms was my way of surrendering to another day of indoor confinement and concentrating on getting the twinlets better.
Grabbing two take-away coffees is a great contingency plan when facing a day with grizzly sick twinlets.
$2 calculators are a great substitute for mobile phones yet still make a great distraction for the twinlets. Also, we no longer need to worry about cell radiation.
It only takes three special (and secret) ingredients to make these “never fail” scones. A big thanks to an old high school friend who entrusted me with the recipe. If I’m really nice to her, I’m sure she’ll let me share it with you all. In the meantime, can you guess what the ingredients might be ???
I owe a big thank you to everyone for their support, love and caring comments on my blog this week. You guys all played an integral part in getting me through these rough few days.
Hugs and love.
See you next week xxx
