Hello, friends! Happy New Year! It’s 2017 already 😳
I finished up work on Wednesday, 21 December and I/we had plans to do all sorts of things – family fun/study/decluttering/organising things. Turns out my body/health had other ideas.
I got a cold 😔. Not just a quick couple of days cold, but a cold that I seemed to get one symptom at a time and lasted two weeks. It started on 19 December with a runny nose, then a sore throat for a week and a half with a cough.
Christmas Eve was delightful! We headed to my brothers home and and he and his wife put together a delicious meal. I brought Pimms.
We huddled together in the lounge room and opened presents. I did well, Peter Alexander pyjamas. When they aren’t in the wash, they are my pj’s of choice. I love, love, love them!
Unfortunately, I got really sick from there and spent the next few days in bed or in my armchair in the lounge room. It meant that I got to do a bit of reading, snoozing and resting. I also slept here at night as my coughing prevented me from laying in bed.
As I said earlier, I/we wanted to do so much. Trips to the beach, the park, catch-up with family and friends for play dates but I just couldn’t. I started to get some energy back on New Years Eve. I like to get the Christmas tree away by New Years Eve. It came down in the afternoon of New Years Day, so not too bad.
On New Years Eve I got the kids to empty out their playroom of all their toys, ready for a declutter. They had a go through and then I had a go through. I filled an IKEA blue bag with goodies for daycare and I think a quarter of our main bin filled with broken toys.
We finally got out and about on Monday morning though with a visit to a new park with my brothers family. Relaxed fun at its best!
