It feels like we’ve had such a long weekend. Poor Hugo’s been very unwell. Our GP assured me it was a virus, and I wouldn’t be surprised if the poor mite has proper influenza (generally miserable, fevers, vomiting, rigours, runny nose, cough, off his food and milk, fitful sleeping and waking disoriented). Horrible. Ever since Alex’s brush with meningoencephalitis – the un-fun double whammy of inflammation of the brain and the surrounding cerebral tissue – we’ve been on meningitis high-alert. I feel like I run constant diagnostic checks each time one of us gets sick. So yeah, fun weekend. Not great for exhaustion or anxiety levels. Hugo’s on the mend, thank goodness.
On the upside (if there is one) the weather has been foul and so staying inside hasn’t seemed so bad. I’ve had a big pot of bone broth cooking for Hugo this afternoon and we’re taking it easy – with Alex and I taking turns to pop out and do the grocery shopping.
Saturday afternoon saw Elena and I get our sew on and start some dinosaur tails I’ve been planning for ages. Um, yeah, I need to tidy my sewing space. Understatement of the year (decade? century? millennium?).
I followed the great tutorial over at Running with Scissors with a few changes here and there (which I’ll blog when I’ve got some daylight to work with and my pint-sized assistant is otherwise occupied).
It took Elena a while to warm up to her tail this morning but once she got her courage up there was no stopping her. You can see she was at full strength by dinner time…I have more blurry dinosaur pictures than you’d believe!
Even dinos like their Duplo.
