{The Ordinary moments 2016} #9 ‘Another poorly week but finally blowing away the cobwebs

Unfortunately i missed my ordinary moments post last week as Finley caught a horrible virus and sickness bug and came down really poorly with it on Saturday. We had to miss two of his school friends parties and pretty much didn’t leave the house the whole weekend. So much so, I just didn’t get a minute to sit down and write a post or take any photos. He was finally better by Wednesday and went back to school. But of course then Hugo got poorly too! Not with the sickness bug thankfully, but with a nasty little cough and wheezy chest. He’s had this a couple of times before so we have an inhaler, but it just didn’t seem to be doing much good and I was really worried about him. After a doctors visit on Friday we got some mild steroids, and thankfully he seems to be so much better.  Yesterday we finally were able to leave the house and go for a lovely, albeit FREEZING walk. It really was so cold, and we wasn’t really all that prepared outfit wise, so didn’t actually stay out for very long. We went to a beautiful place called Papermill lock, stopping for tea and cake at the tearooms before setting off on a short walk along the canal. Finley absolutely loved collecting and throwing stones into the water, and Hugo copied him too which was super cute, as he really does adore his big brother. I did attempt to take this months me and mine photos, but they were an absolute disaster as it was just so cold, Finley started crying, Hugo was running off, i look terrible and people kept on walking past! I’m not sure if we’ll have time to take any more, so I may just be posting one of those disasterous ones tomorrow! Oh well, at least we won’t miss a month and it will be funny to look back on I’m sure!

Here are a few of the better ones from the day..

    Gorgeous photos and I am sorry you have all been poorly. We seem to have escaped the sickness bugs this winter, although I doubt we will escape them for long. And it is so hard to try and set up family photos when it is this cold isn’t it? We have had that problem over the last couple of months, the children just get fed up! xx

      We don’t usually have all that much illness, and thankfully nothing before Christmas, but since then it’s been awful!
      Honestly it was such a nightmare! In retrospect I should have taken it at the beginning of being out and not at the end when everyone was too cold and fed up! You’d never know from your pics, the girls always look so happy! x

    Oh what a horrid bug that must have been! And if it makes you feel any better, our walk this afternoon finished with two little girls tramping along chanting “we want chocolate” at ever increasing volume – oh what a moment of parenting glory that was!
