@ my house.

Right now at my house there are a zillion things I should be doing rather than writing this blog but today I don't care. Today I've chucked the shoulds out the window. Yesterday Miss Pepper started to get really sick. Last night nobody slept. Today she's been crying non stop and as a result we are walking around in the same sort of fog as if there were a new born in the house.

Blah!

Right now at my house I should be making dinner, instead I am holding my baby on my lap while I write this.

Bren is working somewhere and Indi and Jazzy are outside doing the photo shoot for their glamour mag.

Apparently when they are finished they'll 'fiddle with photos on the computer, write some text and print the mag.' Wow!

At my house today this pile of gorgeousness has been taunting me all day. I pulled them together last night intending to sew them into some more jumping dresses today but instead they are still sitting untouched.

Maybe tomorrow.

Maybe tonight we'll sleep.

Hopefully.

I hope things are a bit more happy and healthy at your house today.

Love Kate X

  3. Ah, yuck. A sick little one is absolutely awful; as bad for Mummy as for them, I think, knowing they are suffering & knowing there is bugger all you can do about it, except be there with kisses & hugs & more kisses, & more hugs... Well, it sucks. Hope Pepper feels better super soon, & that everyone gets some rest tonight. xoxo

  4. Sorry to hear about Miss P, its not good. Our Miss G was ill last week, made her so weak. Its awful when the little ones get these things. I hope you guys get some sleep tonight, it makes all the difference.

    (I REALLY love the fabric you have picked out there)xx

  5. Hope you all get a better nights sleep tonight! I love that your girls are making their own magazine - what a great idea, I'm going to suggest it to my boys, although their would probably be about star wars or lego or weapons or something!
    Can't wait to see what the dresses look like in that beautiful fabric! Have a good week!

  6. Sorry to hear about Pepper - hope she's on the mend soon and has a good long sleep for you tonight. I've had Kelvin out of sorts for a few weeks although (touch wood) sleeping pretty well but the clinginess alone is exhausting.

    As for the fashion mag - will they be selling subscriptions? I need me some more advice on how to fashionably drape wool around my neck to compliment my outfit!!

  8. Hope Pepper perks up soon. Some days everything just needs to take a back seat to one important thing. But I can see why the fabric is taunting you. :)

  9. I hope Pepper is on the mend soon. No matter how old they get, sick kids always want their mum. Lovely fabric.

  10. The only thing worse than sick kids is being sick and having sick kids. I hope your baby is on the mend. Also hope you get some sewing time in. The dresses are gorgeous.

  21. Little Pepper will be fine with all the care you are giving her. Meanwhile the imaginative well ones are busy. You have a great family.

  22. Oh yes, you have to have fun too, 'shoulds' can always wait!! Love Posie

  23. I know this is a frustrated and tired post but you always make me smile. Maybe because I can relate so much. Unfortunately we aren't so well at the moment either. It was actually quite nice to be forced home today with my conjunctivitis eyes. My eldest still got to go on his special outing with the friend that was going as well.

    So glad you let some things go today - sometimes there really is no choice though, is there? There is only so much you can do with a child attached and really it is much nicer to have a cuddle at the computer rather than dragging them around.

    Thanks for joining in this week Kate. Lovely to visit your house. Can't wait to see the mag ;)

    Lou.

  24. I do hope Miss Pepper feels much better soon and that you all get some much needed sleep. It isnt very nice being so tired like that at all. The girls mag sounds like a lot of fun and what imagination they have, perhaps they have been inspired by their mum's beautiful jumping dresses!

  26. Hope little pepper get better very soon and sleep returned to normal...Amazing fabrics!! x

  27. Kate, I hope Miss Pepper comes well very soon, and I hope Bren has his white charger heading home soon.
    Sleeeeeep - the fabrics will call to you tomorrow too :)
    They are delicious by the way.

    At least the big girls seem very occupied and busy - can they do spagetti on toast for tea yet?

    Hopeful thoughts of wellness and sleep-ins heading your way !

  30. Having a sick child is no fun. Hope you get a better night's sleep tonight. I'm a big fan of Baby Dymadon in the orange flavour, my kids slurp it out of the syringe like a lolly and it gives you 3-4 hours of peace.

  31. A little too familiar that fog where the shoulds get chucked out the window...

    Your girls are fantastic - fashion mag - I LOVE it! Reminds of the kinds of things my sisters and I got up to as kids, but we certainly didn't know how to fiddle with photos on the computer!!

    Hope things improve soon for little Pepper!

  32. I know how you feel, I was woken in the middle of the night by a boy with nightmares....you certainly feel wrecked the next day. Hope Pepper is better soon :-)

  33. throw the shoulds out the window, they will be back again tomorrow, so deal with them then. Hugs to Pepper and you too xx

    ReplyDelete
  34. hope you're all getting better by now - I have a newborn and it is NOT easy after you get used to a good night sleep...
    sometimes we do need these days that we are floating with "life" rather than stick to our plans
    wish ya' all the best

    And if that first photo is any indication of the quality of the girls' magazine, sign me up for a subscription.

Thanks so much for stopping by...

I do read every single comment you leave and appreciate it very much, but I should let you know that I can be a wee bit on the useless side when replying to comments, that's just me, everyday life sometimes gets in the way....so I'll apologise now, just in case.
