Our Week in Pictures - #4


As I type this I'm so beyond exhausted that my eyes keep closing every few minutes or so. Blinking furiously is doing nothing. Nor is the second red bull I hold in my hand. (seriously are these things all a con or what?)

It's lunchtime and I'm on day 3 of absolutely zero sleep. 72 hours of tending to poorly children day and night. I'm surprised I'm not at the hallucination stage yet.

(Oh but its coming. I can feel it, haha.)

My first thought when uploading earlier was how the photos this week don't represent how my week has gone at all. Like, one little bit. Funny that. Although I guess not so surprising as you don't get out a camera and snap whilst your childs having a meltdown really do you? But still, looking at these pictures the kids look happy. But the reality this week was that they were far from it.


The week started with Archer teething (whats new!) and we spent the first few days of the week inside because I simply just couldn't take him anywhere with the mood he was in. And I wasn't feeling too great myself (minor sickness bug.) Looking back he was probably starting to get my sickness bug at the start of the week combined with the teething. The first few photos below it does just look like Archer being cute but to be honest looking at those photos all I'm going to remember is how the only way to stop him screaming that day was to give him an apple to bite into haha. God bless the fruit. 

The second half of the photos were taken on Fathers Day yesterday. It looks like the kids are getting on really well but these were actually again taken in the rare five minutes of the day Archer wasn't having a scream fest. And Lily wasn't crying about how his screams hurt her head.
Both of them are poorly, Lily's off nursery today with a sky high temperature and so Fathers day was a complete write off.

I can't help but feel deflated after this week. It's been tiring. Full of illness, being trapped indoors on hot days, sorting out James' written off car and other depressing things. My body is just about ready to shut down from exhaustion and my head is screaming I don't know how much more of this I can take. 

But still we plod on. The good weather continues into this week and hopefully the kids will see the back of their illnesses in the next day or so. (Please, please!) and so we can start making the most of the sunshine. We'll all be more positive all round. (:

  2. The photos are amazing and they do look so so happy. I feel your pain on the sleep front. I'm running on literally empty after no more than an hours sleep last 3 nights, - a combination of the heat and teething. It's a killer!!!

  3. Ah that's a shame that they are poorly! They do look really happy and like they're playing nicely in these photos. It's so hard when you're surviving on so little sleep though isn't it? x
