It's lovely to look out the living room window at my budding flowers - a great distraction from the continued lurgies that are lurking in our home. Last week I had my first ever trip in an ambulance, courtesy of a small one's croup. It was described as mild to moderate, but enough to keep us in hospital overnight (I would hate to see moderate to severe croup, this bout scared me as it was...). It's been hard to make plans and stick to them with either one or all of the kids sick over the past little while, so it's become easier to just let each day happen as it comes. It's life with plenty of outtakes at the moment, like the spilled water on the bench and the flowers knocked out of their vase... Beautiful, yes, but not as planned!
