Sick,but still mommy duties

I have the flu.
Today it was hubby’s turn to get dd1 ready and bring her to school, which means sleeping in for me. And since I was really feeling not well, this was very welcome.
Somehow hubby had trouble with dd1, so I ended up getting her ready again.
She didn’t want to go at first, which made me wonder if she was feeling sick as well.
First she said that she was sick but later after talking to her and asking her if she really didn’t want to go, she decided that she would go after all.
So despite not feeling well and quite wobbly, I got her ready as fast as I could and hubby drove her to school. I also asked him to get me some medicine.

I stayed in bed for the most of the morning. Hubby brought me paracetamol with a cup of water and I got breakfast and tea in bed. Wow ! But later I went down to do some stuff on the pc like check the balance of my bank account.
Hubby got a phone call from a job agency about a vacancy.
They wanted to meet him today and hubby wanted to get a hair cut, so I needed to check if we can afford that. He ended up buying a new suit at Lidl as well. He wanted to make a good impression. Lol

Anyway, because of hubby’s plans I needed to adjust my plans to go back to bed.
Because he’s going to his course after the interview, I needed to iron his newly bought suit and make a bun for dd1.
And I have to cook dinner even though I’m sick. Just so dd1 has something to eat.

And I actually have been spoilt by hubby when it comes to cooking. Since he didn’t have a job and I was working fulltime, he was the one cooking dinner every day.
When I went on maternity leave I left it all like it was.
I really had become a bit lazy. I kept planning to cook a few days a week.
But it’s so easy when someone else does it. lol

But so today I have to cook.
I decided for something easy and that would mean lentil soup.
It’s one of those meals of which we know that dd1 likes it and that she’s going to eat it.

9.17 pm We were wrong. We didn't have chopped tomatoes and despite of me being so 'creative' and putting ketchup instead dd says the meal is not the same because it is yellow. I'm sure that it really tastes (almost) the same.
I can't wait for hubby to return home so I can sleep.

I must say that we all went to my room and I dozed off a couple of times while dd was watching a video.
Well, I probably really slept because I hadn't noticed that dd had gone downstairs to get bread and salami and had made herself some sandwiches to eat instead of dinner.
When I told her that she was not listening to me and had been naughty (I had told her she would not get bread but she needed to eat her dinner instead) and noticed that I really wasn't happy with her behaviour, she said a couple of times with a little voice: 'Sorry mommy' and came up to me to give me a hug and a kiss.
Well what can you say against that ? (Sigh)

She just came down the stairs with her baby sister, telling me she had changed her nappy. Remember, she's four years old.....Oh my word..
I really don't know what to say. I'm just happy she didn't fall of the stairs with the baby. Ofcourse she means well.(sigh)

Hope hubby is back soon. But it's also about sleepy time for dd1.
So, off to bed...
Have a good night....

It's Summer time / Giveaway (closed)

It’s officially Summer here in Ireland, even though most of the time  it is hard to see it when you look outside. There are days when there have been some sunny spells but the sun has been hiding behind dark clouds on most of those days as well. This week it's supposed to be a good week weather wise.  A few weeks ago the sun was shining since the morning and after dropping the two older girls at school, I decided to take Nevaeh for a walk to the park close by and to feed the ducks. On the way to the park the sun was so much in my eyes that I decided to stop at the Dunnes Stores and get sun glasses. Since Nevaeh was so interested in mine I got her some too. Mini mouse ones. She loves them. The week after, it was the turn for the older girls to get sun glasses. Hello Kitty ones for Yovannah. And pink, sparkly ones for Ixora. They really love their sun glasses and wear them on sunny days.

Since this post is post nr. 60 of my blog I decided to do a little give away.

Little people

It's Five minute friday. And I'm joining Lisa-Jo Baker for another session of five minute writing.

 Today we are writing about ; Imagine


 I love having kids. I love how they can surprise you by using certain words or doing certain things of which you were not aware that they could say them or do them. I love how clever they are.
I love to take care of them and to see them grow in to the people they are supposed to be one day. Now they are little people, my little people. A wish fulfilled, a blessing from God and I can’t imagine how life would be without them.
I can’t imagine a life without tiny arms that wrap themselves around you and say ‘I love you mummy’, even though they are only two. I can’t imagine a house without toys , the buggy with dollies in the corridor, the little wooden bike in the living room, the forgotten stuffed animals behind the sofa.
Though I sometimes wish that it was easier, that they made less mess, I surely can’t imagine life without them.
