Our week this week has been consumed by one thing: Chickenpox. Lia came down with it a couple of days ago and we had a night of hell where we both got about half an hour’s sleep in total. Luckily, the following day I managed to find some rhus tox tablets. Say what you like about homeopathic medicines, these things are amazing. I remember having chickenpox as a child and I took these and hardly itched at all. And sure enough as soon as we managed to get them for Lia, the itching stopped. I’d initially tried to find them in…

Since Libby was 13 months old, we have been going to a ballet class every Wednesday. Both girls adore ballet and it has done so much for their confidence, particularly for Libby who has progressed to a stage performance group within the same ballet school. This half term, the ballet class has moved to a different day when we are unable to go. This has thrown me a bit.

Each time I write these Thursday photo posts, I look at the number and it reminds me that I really need to make a feature of them when I reach Thursday photo #100, in just five weeks’ time.

And of course a blog post to show off my handiwork. I’m also really enjoying the weekly updates in these posts. When I started blogging, one…

Last week was half term and we filled it with lovely days out. At the weekend, we kept things relatively calm to give the girls a chance to recover from their hectic week. We stayed local and made the most of our National Trust membership, heading to our favourite attraction. The weather was terrible, but we still managed to get out to the park. Since then, we’ve got quite nicely back into our usual routine. Libby is still enjoying nursery and Lia is loving her activities in the mornings. Yesterday I even treated them to a morning at soft play,…
