Pale – My #WOTW and #R2BC

By | February 11, 2016

No introductions really needed as to how our week has been, the picture above says it all.

That’s our ill, pale T.  Sleeping when he can on the sofa because the absolutely vicious flu bug that he’s picked up has chewed him up and not yet let go.  He’s been ill since last Friday and this is how he’s been for most of this week, when not coughing/vomiting.

That red plastic box next to him has been carted around with him this week, it’s been a case of “have vom box, will travel” and it hasn’t been needed for a couple of days but T still needs it close by, just in case.

Because he’s been so poorly, he’s now reached the stage where he’s afraid to eat in case (well.. you know) and hopefully this stage won’t last too long because he gets skinny quickly.  

No surprises then that my word for this week is:


But I’m grateful for a few things too:

1. Being there 

 I’ve been able to be at home with him. Ironically I started looking online for a school hours job this week (without much success) but this week has taught me that when my family needs me, I have to be there.  Whether it’s hospital with D, time off with T or Hubbie needing a chat, if I do find something, it needs to be flexible.  Hmm…

2.  A medal

D won another medal this week, her team from school came first in a Boccia tournament.  It’s no mean feat considering her team was obviously all SN players and they were in an unfamiliar location against strangers.  Very proud.


3.  Everything else!

This week has been challenging.  We’re all tired and I haven’t had much motivation to get things done.  Thank goodness it’s half term next week and maybe T will start to feel better.  My work-in-progress crochet blanket definitely helps me wind down a bit, it’s getting larger by the day!


I feel a bit mean taking that first picture but, in the future, he’s going to want to fester in his room when poorly and definitely not want his parents fussing around him so I’m feeling needed whilst I can! 

This also made me giggle, from the Sainsburys website and no, I haven’t ordered it:

(The text says: I love you more than yesterday..yesterday you really got on my nerves!)

How’s your week been?
