After successfully avoiding the wave of Hand, Foot & Mouth that’s swept through Lottie’s daycare service, our friends’ kids and ballet class we’ve all been struck down one by one with a nasty cough and runny noses.
Sick toddlers are not fun, sick husbands are worse. All in all we’ve gotten a decent amount of sleep and kept super warm so we’re on the mend.
The days stuck inside haven’t been wasted. Lottie’s old change table is finally gone and a beautiful open wardrobe we scored for free (thanks gumtree) is now home to tutus, coats, blankets and way too many shoes for a 2 year old. I gave the bathroom a warm and beautiful make over with purple & grey towels, a fluffy mat, candles and apothecary jars adding so much to the ambiance with no paint used at all. And I’m working on my latest obsession – thick, stylish ear warmers. I’ve worked out the kinks in the pattern and can’t wait to post the results.
It’ll be another sick day inside but with tea parties, crochet projects and the Care Bears it won’t be a boring one.
