Emma McConnellogue’s little one.
Yip, you guessed it, I’m still sick, worst thing is how it’s now affecting Lizzie. She doesn’t sleep well and feeding is a struggle, it’s all a bit poop! It’s been a crazy wet, wild and mixed weekend, but we did have some sun on and off today, which was pleasant and prompted me to get out and do that Photoshoot of Lizzie I’ve been dying to do! It was lovely. We took some props, popped on a lovely, warm, girly outfit and headed off to the local, quiet, park where we’d be pretty much undisturbed 🙂
It started with a tickle, then it metastasised and now it’s a demon cold from hell. One that has now taken my poor daughter too 😦 We are a sorry state of a family right now. James started coughing…it’s all down hill from there. I’m feeling very sorry for myself, mostly because I feel so poorly all my activities and fun stuff I had lined up have been discarded into a snotty and dusty heap. I’m in the middle of making wind chimes for Lizzie’s room, I have a couple of my own art canvas projects to start and finish for LIzzie’s room now the glue gun has arrived and a bunch of crafts for halloween to be getting on with and updating you all with but can I find the energy? No 😦 I’m considering intravenous caffeine…PURE CAFFEINE.
This is for the rescue I founded with one of my best friends, SRAN: Sophie’s Refuge for Animals in Need – It’s gone from strength to strength but as all rescues do, rely on public support, help and donations to keep things functioning. If you’re in the UK and fancy an afternoon out in Nottingham, please do book a slot and come along, meet the team, support a fantastic cause and have some ace photos taken of you and your furry best friend(s) Please click the link and support our little rescue, we support the whole of the UK taking in and rehoming animals from all over ❤
It’s been a busy few days here at The Nook, I finally got called to do the Autumn Themed Photoshoot outdoors with a family of 7 (plus 1 dog!) It was a lot of fun, a long day though, and the kids were fantastic. The shoot was very relaxed, a lot of the shots were taken candidly rather than deliberately posed for and the kids were keen to set up their own ides of things as well, which was just lovely.
I still can’t quite believe this has taken me 6 months to do! I’m quite a keen photographer, I’ve shot pet portraits, worked for rescues, done weddings and commercial stuff and this is the first little shoot I’ve done with my own daughter, despite always having my phone in her face. Shame on me!
Today I went to test out my hips to see just how they would hold up “returning to normal routine” as suggested by the surgeon. Well, not too bad actually. They didn’t enjoy the sudden stops and starts of the bus, nor too much standing around, but altogether they appear to be somewhat better than how they were, so let’s hope this is something that will continue for a wee while!
Lizzie and I took a wee trip to the shops, we needed to grab some baking powder for a cake I’m going to bake this weekend and a few other odds and ends as well as pick up her prescription of Gaviscon for Infants for her reflux issues (which was way overdue thanks to some messing around by GP and Pharmacy systems – ugh!) We have it now, so back to every feed at last 🙂
