Oh what a week! Since last Friday Ava has been quite poorly and it has been hard and horrible. She’s had a raging fever, been in pain with a head and tummy ache, and was throwing up for days. She’s only eaten a tiny bit since last Friday and now she’s so lethargic and still suffering, and she is very, very grumpy. She’s been off school for a week now which means that my mammoth lists of things to do before Christmas has barely been touched, and I’m feeling a wee bit overwhelmed. I am glad it’s happened now though so that she’s hopefully well over Christmas – I’m trying to cling on to feeling grateful about that for now.
Welcome to this weeks Little Loves!
My mammoth lists of things to do before Christmas. That is all.
The Good Wife when I’ve actually had a chance in the evenings to sit down. I also watched the First Dates episode with the fashion blogger Carl Thompson and Marissa, and oh my goodness I thought it was so cute! I’m aware this sounds cheesy as hell, but the excitement they had at how much they liked each other and the potential of a future together was incredibly lovely to see and really made me smile (I needed any reason to do that this week!). I was pretty gutted that it didn’t work out for them after a few dates, to be honest, but it was still lovely to watch. *Hashtag loser*
Leggings, t-shirts, jumpers, dressing gowns, no make-up. I didn’t leave the house for days on end so that’s about the extent of it.
I did wear this Christmassy jumper last week though:
Very little as always! Again, I had lots of plans to do some Christmas baking with Ava but we obviously haven’t been able to do that. I did finally paint this corner cabinet though – it was my Granny’s and then my uncles, and then he wanted it to stay in the family so when he moved he gave it to me. I really wanted to keep it but the dark wood just didn’t go in our house, so I decided to paint it so it would fit better (I did check with him first!). I need to do a few touch ups still (clearly!), but it fits so much better in my dining room now.
Is it January yet?! Bah humbug. I’m looking forward to Christmas and some time off really, and I can’t wait to see my mum and some wider family again, but I’d just like to sleep for a day or two first please, and then wake up with all of my presents wrapped, a clean house, and a beautifully decorated tree in the corner of the living room (No we haven’t got it yet, the decorations are still in the attic, including Hooey, our elf – I’m winning at Christmas this year).
Hope you’ve had a lovely week and are feeling very organised! xxx
