So it seems that September just disappeared in a whirl of non blogging.
At this moment in time I can't even think what we did!!
So maybe we did indeedy whirl right through September.....
On into October and my most favourite time of year. The weather is slightly cooler and although it is not as crisp as I would like, I am learning to be patient and enjoy the transition between seasons.
We are now thinking about pumpkin bread munching, Halloween costume wearing, autumn leaf crunching days ahead.
Oh and in 2 sleeps we get to go to our happy place.
Two weeks ago I was giddy with excitement , preparing for our Hughes family to come home, looking forward to enjoying the last few days of the holidays.
We had a lovely night when joe boy came home.
Surrounded by family and happiness . I got to take Joe boy to "his home" and bathe him and snuggle him in for the night.
Starting as I meant to go on. I was going to soak up every second.
Then I got sick.
Properly, achingly, breathlessly unwell.
And almost 2 weeks later i'm still recovering.
I've missed everything , family meals,
park days, play dates. Everything.
Apart from one pointless night spent in the hospital my only view has been from my couch
Or from my tiny corner of the bed. Meaty and I have been having some (fairly) good natured turf wars!
Everyone wants mama's side of the bed :-)
This is the furthest I've been, to the top of my garden ( I may or may not have been escaping the constant bickering that was going on inside!) I wrapped myself in my favourite quilt and caught some healing sunshine.
Overall this past week has made me very thankful. I have a fantastic family who have taken care of me (us) brought food, sacrificed their time and run 10,000 errands for me.
I'm very lucky for my usual good health.
And what a valuable lesson that is to learn.
Looking forward to some fun play and park dates in the next two weeks.
Cooking meals for and helping my family and friends who have done so much for me.
Counting my blessings.
Ps- who on earth thought it was a good idea to give this medication to a girl whose throat is almost swollen shut??? I mean, seriously?!
