They have hit us hard here at home in a big way and stopped us in our tracks. Some regular winter colds and fevers that appeared in clear in the kids nearly two weeks ago, back flipped and took us all down one by one very quickly from about ten days ago now with bronchitis.
Ben, myself, Cohen and Sarah have all been very ill with a serious bout of bronchitis with Cohen also suffering a bad ear infection in one ear and a mild one in the other. The healthiest and happiest child in the house has been Fraser, which is not only wonderful but it has also been challenging with us being so sick and having a not quite two year old with bundles of energy wanting to use us as a trampoline and amusement park, when we have nothing to give.
There has been no option but to pull out all stops on the home front and put all reserves into trying to get us healthy. So there have been a lot movie marathons, snugly blanket beds and naps on the lounge room floor, cuddles and cups of tea and utter mind numbing laziness going on here.
Despite the yuckiness and the feeling that comes with being sick, the only upside has been the wonderful connected and quality time we have been having as a family, all nursing and nurturing each other back to better health this past week and a bit. We are all still recovering as I write this.
Today is my first day trying to get back into the swing of things with blog and business, so as I work to clear a back log of things that need to be attended to expect news coming soon over the coming days and week regarding:
* The up and coming Everything Deco to Retro Fair from July 17th - 19th.
* Feature post about some amazing nursery rhyme family heirloom art.
* DIY/How To post on how to make your own Tape Measure Brooch
* Basic Care and Conditioning of vintage tooled leather bags
So hopefully I will be able to get back into the swing of things and kick the remaining yuckiness associated with this illness. I do hope that you and yours are all well and are doing a better job of fighting off the winter chills and ills than my crew and myself have been.
