In case there is anyone out there who doesn't know its cold here in England, it is, strange isn't it what with it being winter and all?? Well after an awful night's sleep with all four children last night, all four are now full of a very bad and seemingly highly contagious cold. A friend recently asked me how I managed with a 5, 2, 1 and newborn and after last nights broken sleep I'm really not sure! I must have been a bit zombie-like. Its not like I had nay family help either it was all down to me or hubby but as I was breastfeeding it was mostly down to me. There were no grandma's swooping in like I often read about on other blogs, although I know that will be me when my own children have children. Still we managed and we managed again today. The saddest thing really about it all today was missing our weekly Friday group. Its really become a highlight of our week and since we started it back in September last year we have barely missed one! I was asking Ruben questions before bed last week, 10 questions to be precise, because I like a snapshot of things like favourite colour, favourite story etc every now again, as its always changing. He surprised me with a few answers:
Me "Favourite book/story?"
Ruben "Pippi Longstocking"
Me "Place you most want to visit?"
Ruben "Loch Ness"
Me "Favourite place you've been recently"
Ruben "Friday group"
No idea where Loch Ness has come from, super pleased he enjoyed Pippi Longstocking because its one of the most fantastic books written for children I've read (and I've read A LOT). And really taken back that Friday group has become so important to him. Seems from my facebook page that we were missed too, which was nice to hear.
As we couldn't socialise today we did indoor activities, in between snuggles on the sofa. Ruben did some painting of Warhammer scenery.
