Here I am! Thank you all so much for your kind comments on my last post. I'm feeling a little cheerier as I think the medication is starting to work.
So, what's been going on?
I had a traumatic week last week, my eldest son was sick in the night, a very rare occurrence for him, so I had a mainly sleepless night. The following morning he had a major epileptic fit and I had to dial 999, we then spent a few hours in A&E with him being monitored as he was dehydrated.

The following night I was up and down with my youngest as he felt unwell! So in two nights I had four hours sleep. Come Friday they were both fit and well but I was suffering from sleep deprivation but a trip to the beach soon perked me up 
It's amazing what the sea air can do for you.

This is only going to be a quick post as I'm supposed to be working! I had a 12 year old Russian boy arrive on Sunday, he's staying with me for three weeks. Luckily, he's a very nice boy and my children get on well with him. We had a rather awful Russian student last year and I had been worried that this was going to be a nightmare too!
Take care and I'll leave you with a little flower


  1. That's funny Jak, I was thinking of you earlier and wondering how you were as you hadn't blogged for a while and you know I don't do that awful FB thing! Sorry to hear the kids have been poorly but pleased that your meds seem to be taking effect now.
    Great new look to your blog, very profesh!

  2. Oh my goodness, you've had a torrid time. I'm so sorry to hear that your son has been so unwell, I'm glad he's on the mend now. And I'm pleased that the meds are helping to make life a little easier for you as well, you're right, being outdoors, in your case by the seaside, does make you feel better. Sending hugs and best wishes,

  3. Oh good grief, that sounds just what you didn't need right now! I trust that they were all okay in the end and that you didn't get it too? I love that flower, did you take it? Happy hugs to you luvvie xx

    1. I didn't get it thankfully! Michael wasn't actually ill he just kept thinking he was going to be ill! Yes I took the picture of the daisy. I used a x10 magnifier on my lens, it's cheaper than a macro lens!
