Back to four

Thank you for all your lovely comments on my previous post. You're
 all so kind. I'm sorry I haven't been around much lately, here and over 
on Instagram. I had a busy week last week. My husband was away and
 I had my hands full looking after the girls and doing all the everyday things on my own. I thought I'd be spending my evenings reading and
 doing crochet once the girls were in bed but there was none of those
and there wasn't much time for visiting blogs either. By the time all the
chores were done I was ready for my own bed too. 

Last week was actually a very new and unusual experience for us. 
He's only ever been away once before and that was just in London for
 a night. This time he was thousands of miles away in the east coast 
of America! Quite a distance, I know, and we missed him terribly.
 He went to the wedding of a very dear friend of ours, one of the two 
best men we had when we got married. We couldn't all go to America unfortunately so he had to go by himself (poor him!) In his absence
 the three of us did our best to keep going with our day to day routines and I think we managed it with some help from my in-laws. I'm so grateful to them. We all got a bit ill during the week ('funny tummy' was what it's called around here) but we got through it, we survived. And yesterday he came back-- hurray! And now there are four of us again here and it's definitely lovelier, better, easier and more fun this way. 

Last week was quite a challenge. I had to be more organised, more patient, just more of everything for the girls and it was exhausting.
 It's so nice to be back to 'normal', to not have to think of everything
 for everyone all the time. I can relax again and hopefully there will be time for crochet, reading and catching up with everyone in the next
 few days. 

I hope you're all having a good week. It was quite warm here today
and they say it will be even warmer tomorrow. Enjoy the lovely
weather whatever you're up to!


  1. It sounds like you did really well, considering that there was illness too. I'm glad you're feeling better now. Take care, I hope you're having a good week.

  2. Aww, you and your hubby obviously love each other a great deal! Sorry that you missed him so much, but it is good to know how much you love someone isn't it. I hope that you are all better now after the ickies. xx

  3. I'm glad things are back to normal now for you. I hope you've been out enjoying the sunshine too! xx

  4. I am glad you are all reunited again, it is just so nice to read how much you love each other. If it is any consolation, being on your own with the children gets easier as they grow older. My two oldest help a great deal when Richard is away. x

  5. It is hard when your other half is away, especially if it doesn't happen very often. Sounds like you managed brilliantly. X
