This cold is really starting to take hold now and Lizzie is going through a period of extreme sleep regression. She wakes up between 12-2am and wide awake and wanting to play, takes a good hour to get her back to sleep. James and I are beat and I’m struggling with this virus – not cool. Anyhoo, it’s been quiet and slow here as I really have no energy to do much of anything short of getting through the day, but I still try to keep Lizzie entertained as much as I can. The other day we did Jelly, then there was goopy yoghurt and rice and today we stayed away from mess and I bust out the Little Tikes Sand Pit we won and filled it with her ball pool balls and made a ball pit!
Today it feels like not much of anything was done or achieved at all, don’t you just hate days like that? I can’t believe it’s just passed dinner time. I had a few plans as well to make soup and cakes, well the cakes got made, but the soup didn’t. We did manage some work with our naughty boy dogs and they are doing much better. We also went to the shop to buy a hand mixer as we didn’t have one, but that’s it. Really? Where the heck has the day gone…?
I feel really lucky living in Nottingham, we have great public transport around the city and LOTS of wonderful parks and Nature Reserves throughout and around to take an afternoon stroll rain or shine 🙂 I’m very outdoorsy, James more so since we got together and then again after we added Huskies to our family. I hope our daughter will follow in those footsteps and enjoy nature and the outside world, there is just so much to see and do!
It was another quiet day today unfortunately, Lizzie and I spent time cuddling and playing games together. She’s just started playing with her feet when she’s on her back and started sitting up without support, so we watched a movie in bed together this morning whilst she played with my phone and laptop. She’s so curious and into everything right now, it’s great AND terrifying. I’m not going to be able to keep up with her shortly lol
It’s a balmy day out there today, overcast and muggy, but reasonable for walking the intrepid hounds and going for a stroll in the woods as a family. We try to fit as much in as we can on weekends because weekdays are all work and little play for James and we’re usually beat by the time we get Lizzie down for the night we manage to do very little. Weekends: The world is our oyster!
Where do I start with this one. James and I have 3 dogs, 2 Siberian Huskies and a Husky Cross rescue girlie. They are family. All very different and all equally as mad as a box of frogs, but that helps them fit right in. I volunteer for animal rescues and I’m co-founder of SRAN:Sophie’s Refuge for Animals in Need, a local rescue in Nottingham and one of the most common reasons for giving up the family dog (or cat, rabbit, turtle, etc etc) is “We have a new baby.”
