52 Weeks of Happy...4/52



Hello there! It is cold and wet and windy today and I am feeling very sleep deprived. For the last two nights Angus has woken every couple of hours. It's like having a newborn again but without all the newborn cuddles and sore nipples. He has an ear infection and today we got some antibiotics so hopefully they will take effect and we'll all get a better night's sleep tonight.

So it seems especially appropriate that today is about focusing on the positives. Joining in with Jen at little birdie, here are four things that are cheering me up this week.
  • Clementines. I love these. My vitamin intake increases dramatically when these come into season.
  • Watching the delight on the children's faces on Bonfire Night.
  • One of the beautiful sunrises we've been having on these cold, crisp mornings.
  • Nursery art given to me by a proud boy.

poor Angus, thats rotton luck, lets hope he is feeling much better very soon and that will lead to some extra sleep for you :o)
That clementine photo made my mouth water!

Well, that's something to be positive about, no sore nipples. Poor Angus, Eleanor suffered terribly with ear infections, in fact, she's only just stopped having them, so I know how distressing it is seeing them in pain. Hope the antibiotics kick in soon. Just caught up with your last post and showed my big kids your edible sparklers. They too now want to make them.

Oh not you too...Rufus was up coughing all night last night, we're off to the Docs in the morning. Max used to get ear infections, they're awful - hope poor Angus gets better soon - and you get some sleep! Yum to clementines, they're my favourite, and what a gorgeous photo of them. x

Sorry to hear your little man has been poorly, ear infections are no fun poor thing. But your happies are really nice. I too love clementines, this time of year is great for them. A lovely orange theme to all of your shots too. x

Oh Gillian, I hope little Angus is feeling better soon and you all get some sleep. I know you have to be tired. I love clementines and eat them all winter long. Angus's artwork is so precious, definitely one to frame. And I love that you are focusing on all the positives during this time. We all have so much to be thankful for.

Hope Angus is better soon. KP used to suffer terribly with ear aches when she was small so you have my full sympathy on this one. It's not easy coping with the daily grind on a few hours sleep.
Take care.
June

Hope Angus feels much better very soon - ear infections are dreadful. Your pics are so happy and glowing - can't fail to bring cheer even to the sleep-deprived. Hope you can catch up tonight. Things are always so much more difficult to cope with on reduced sleep. E x

I do hope the budding artist is feeling better, and you too, not getting enough sleep is dire!

I love Clementines too :D

A child's artwork... a true blessing. I treasure those the most.
And what a gorgeous child... I love seeing happy children, it makes life worth living... don't you think?
