102 weeks and 3 days | Me and Mine {February}

February. You’ve been a mixed month.

We’ve seen my boy struck down with pneumonia, the Twinkles both with bouts of conjunctivitis; we’ve all had sickness, coughs, colds…

…yet another month of germs.

But there is now a shiny, bright light at the end of the tunnel. I have just been to put the chickens away for the night — and at 10-to-6 — it was still light!!!

Hurrah! We’ve broken the back of the winter.  Another 4 weeks and  the clocks will go forward. And it will be spring! And with it will come the warmer weather, the longer days and we can hopefully say  goodbye to all of the winter ills.

Hallelujah to that!

These photos are so last minute. We’ve been so bogged down with ailments that there really hasn’t been much opportunity to get outside this month. In fact, Bertie is running a temperature as I type. Poor little bobbin doesn’t look very well on these photos.

The pics are taken on my phone this month — with the aid of the trusty selfie-stick — the light’s not great and they’re all grainy but we’re all together. And that’s really all that matters.

Me and mine have had a rough time over the last couple of months but hopefully with the onset of warmer weather, we may just have seen the last of it. Onwards and upwards — roll on spring!

This month’s highs ~
• Going to the Farrow and Ball talk in Henley — more of that on the blog very soon!
• Taking the twins to playgroup with our lovely friend and her son.
• Auntie Jingle and Imogen coming to stay.
• The boys are (finally) big enough to wear the rainbow gillets we bought last year!
• The days are getting longer now.

This month’s lows ~
• The Twinkle’s daddy with pneumonia
• Lots of nasty bugs (again).

Me and Mine for February…

      Thanks darling — it really has been a long, miserable couple of months for germs!! We’ve never been so ill! Am leaving them in February though — March is going to be a good (germ free) month, I can feel it!! :) X

    Such gorgeous pics! I got myself a selfie stick last month but still haven’t used it. Poor you all and all that sickness. I think we got so much in October-December that there was hardly anything to get this month besides a runny nose from my boy. Hope that March is brighter and healthier for you all! x

    Oh no! So sorry to hear about all the illnesses, especially the pneumonia – that’s dreadful. I hope all are on the mend now? We’ve had lots of nasty little ailments this Winter too, including conjunctivitis. It’s just so horrible to see the people you love poorly isn’t it?
    Fingers crossed for a healthier Spring.

    I like the angle of your selfie-stick photos, with everyone looking up at the camera.

      Thanks so much Heledd! Hopefully the lovely Welsh air will blow those germs away! I’ve no idea how we get them to look at the camera — it’s a fluke 90% of the time!! X
