winter blues

This has been our view for many days lately. A horrible virus struck us down one by one last week and even though we managed our little adventure to my sisters at the weekend, we are still suffering. Theo worst of all, he's been leaking snot everywhere even out of his eyes. It's not been pretty.

I took him to the Doctors yesterday to see wether the conjunctivitis was bacterial and needed antibiotics, but thankfully he's just so full up of virus it just seems to be coming out everywhere. But Theo was very excited to go to the doctors, and even informed me that we are going to the doctors again tomorrow. It may have something to do with the little doctors kit he got for Christmas which he likes to use on all of us and his toys, checking their temperature, listening to their heart and giving them medicine. In the doctors office he was full of questions about what everything was, what it did and how it worked. A very inquisitive boy indeed.

I forget every year how much I hate HATE this time of year. It's all fine up until Theo's birthday, it makes January a little bit bearable to have something to plan and look forward to, but once that's over then just nothing. A big grey, dreary, cold nothing. It hasn't even snowed (yet) this year to break up the bleakness. These past few weeks have found me moody, snappy, uninspired, grumpy and just feeling crap in general. It took me a few days to realise why, and it was staring me straight in the face. It's the middle of winter, past the warmth and joy of Christmas but too far still to feel the glimmer and promise of Spring.

So I think this is the way the next few weeks will continue, hiding away under the duvet, playing doctors and trying to stay happy!

Spring come soon and save us all!


  1. Winter illness! Everyone's struck down. I have friends whom I haven't been able to see for weeks because one or both of us has been ill! Get well soon. x

  2. :( we seem to have one thing after another this winter.... roll on summer! Get well soon xx

  3. just the way it is this time of year isn't it. bleugh! hope you all feel better soon.

  4. SNAP! First it was F and now me. I did the exact same thing taking him to the docs on Monday only to be sent away with it's just a cold. Yes a bloody annoying one. This virus has floored me but I'm stocking up on good things in the hopes it makes us better soon. Love the photos of Theo and hope he's feeling better soon xx

  5. Aww such a sweet last photo! Winter illnesses are so hard.Hope you're all better soon....bring on Summer!! :)

  6. Ahh it seems like everyone is ill at the moment, this time of year is the worst. My two had a horrid virus over Xmas that gave them eye infections too. Hurry up Spring! Hope he feels better soon x

  7. We had the same thing last week - it's awful - but I am sure you will bounce back better than ever - both of you :) It always seems to happen this time of year and my thoughts are now floating towards the first signs of spring - I hate the think I am trying to rush time but the winter days do drag on. Sending wishes of getting better soon


  8. Same here - i hate the white skies and the empty trees, it is so depressing. These past couple of days have been the worst, i've literally had to drag myself out of the house for the school runs & every single time we have all got soaked :(

    Roll on spring, hope you both feel better very very soon! xx
