Well, it’s day one of the holiday and we are at home to Mr Puke. Not how I wanted the long summer holiday to kick off! Ieuan looks to be making a speedy recovery but the Husband and I have agreed (once again) that booking a holiday in the first week off is like playing Russian roulette. If any nasty germs have been brewing, they’ll surely make their way out in week one. It’s a salutary reminder that parenting never stops, does it?! You’ll find some tips for looking after a poorly child here.
We are all still melting in the heat and the garden now resembles the Gobi Desert. Apparently, though, you don’t need to worry about your yellowing grass because it’s gone into a kind of hibernation. Let’s hope so!
I’m still not sleeping well, despite my lovely SIMBA mattress. Check out my SIMBA mattress review here. It’s a combination of the heat and the approach of the menopause. Trying to keep cool when you’re already having a hot flush must be as uncomfortable as being in the third trimester of your pregnancy in the hot summer months.
The Husband has gone to London this week, just in time for the ‘Mediterranean Melt’. Will the temperature really reach 101 degrees Fahrenheit? Can you imagine being on the underground in that? For once, I don’t envy him his freedom to jet off to other cities.
Just a little reminder too that Feedspot has recognised Mother Distracted as one of the top 100 family lifestyle blogs on the web. Read all about it here.
Happy hunting for your freebie and bargain reads from Beck Valley Books on this link.
Midlife mum from Cardiff. Wine Imbiber. Likes glitter, fluff and olives. Approaching tweendom with Caitlin (11) and Ieuan (10). The husband is hiding in the loft.
