Days 75 – 81 of Project 365

Days 75-81 of Project 365

Apologies for the mediocre week, but it has been one of those dreadful weeks.

75. From Up Here (The Boy has been asking to go to Roath Park for a month or so now, we finally managed to get over there this afternoon. The Boy scampered up the climbing frame which he has been previously very tentative about, never attempting to get above the bottom layer before. However this time he almost reached the top. And yes, my heart was in my mouth the entire time.)

76. No Hallmark Here! (Making daddy's birthday card for later in the week, I'm so impressed with how much he's writing independently nowadays.)

77. Another Warning (I'm getting wary midweek now, and I hope that this is the end of the days when I have to work out why he might be so unenthusiastic. Another calm before the storm, this time with a Springtime shadow.)

78. Clean-Up (Horrendous night of vomit. HORRENDOUS! We ran out of bedding for The Boy and I ended up holding him in my arms all night again. I called in and took it as a carer's day because, quite frankly, sometimes only mummy will do.)

79. Happy Birthday Daddy! (When I came home from school The Boy and I wrapped up Mr. TBaM's birthday presents. The Boy chose to give him some grown-up LEGO, however none of the sets has an age-range higher than 12 years old. We decided to change the age-range appropriately.)

80. Bleugh! (I can't even begin to tell you how rubbish I felt on Friday; I contracted The Boy's stomach bug and spent the entire day in bed or the bathroom. My bedside table held cooled boiled water, boiled and flat lemonade, and dioralyte. Rubbish, RUBBISH DAY!)

81. On The Up? (Both The Boy and I have been feeling better today, however now Mr. TBaM thinks he might have tonsillitis. It never rains, but it pours!)

      I think it's the fact that I wouldn't be able to get up there and to him quickly enough for my liking, but we have to let them find their own way don't we? I'm very lucky that my boss didn't say anything to me about the day, although I was waiting for a jibe.

  1. says

    I love the fact you changed the age on the Lego 🙂 lets face it your never too old for Lego! Oh no you've really had a week of it with sickness 🙁 hope your all better soon xx

    • TheBoyAndMe says

      I managed to get a few decent photographs, but it wasn't a very inspiring week unfortunately. Thank you.

  2. says

    Goodness! I was nursing a wee man with a temp of 40.2 at the beginning of the week so understand…like you I had to take the time of work…we were both VERY tired. Thankfully he chirped up by the end of the week! Hope you all have a good weekend. Oh and of course the first and last photos rock!

    • TheBoyAndMe says

      I was exhausted on Wednesday morning, thankfully my mum came over to look after us both for a bit and we both went back to sleep together. Hope your little man is better now too?

  3. says

    Oh no those sick bugs are the worst! I hope you are feeling better. Good photos though in spite of the vomit! Good idea with the Lego, my 18 year old still plays with the Lego regularly. Great shadow photo but I like the cheeky bath shot at the end.

    • TheBoyAndMe says

      I can cope with anything else, just not sickness! I like the cheekiness of the bath shot too, I think he's back?

    • TheBoyAndMe says

      Thanks, I was originally aiming for a photograph of him playing on the climbing frame but he didn't want to comply; the shadow shot was far more interesting photographically.

    • TheBoyAndMe says

      I don't think so either, how silly of them to restrict the age range to 12! I think we're in for a rough few days with Mr. TBaM, must be sympathetic after he cleaned up my vomit!

  4. says

    And still you got lovely shots from such a rubbish week. I hope Mr TBaM had a great birthday, I'm sure he was thrilled with his Lego set, some of the most successful presents I've bought The Man have been Lego or Airfix kits … boys will always be boys 🙂 x

    • TheBoyAndMe says

      Aww thanks, some of them are ok but I must confess I almost failed the challenge this week! After 3+ years! Poor Mr. TBaM had a non-starter for a birthday, must make it up to him when we're all better.

    • TheBoyAndMe says

      It absolutely should have that age on the box, I'm sure it used to?! I like the last photo too, I think my cheeky chappy is back.

  5. says

    Oh gosh what a week especially after The Boy being poorly last week. Stomach bugs are so horrible. I hope you're all feeling better and Daddy is soon too. I love the Lego edit and that first photo is wonderful. Here's to a better one next week 🙂

    • TheBoyAndMe says

      It's been a very difficult fortnight indeed, looking forward to a bit more well health. This week is already looking better, but we just have to get past the dreaded halfway mark!

  6. says

    Goodness, that bug sounds horrible! Glad you're feeling better now. Gorgeous photos, I especially love the one at the top of The Boy on the climbing frame. Well done for finally having the courage to go up!

    • TheBoyAndMe says

      It's been a fairly horrendous fortnight but I think we're on the 'up' now! I'm very proud of him for getting to the 'almost' top of the climbing frame, he's really overcome his anxious side when exploring.

      Thanks for linking up to Project 365.

  7. says

    oh dear at your awful week, sounds really horrendous, hate vomit either for myself or the children, just cant cope with it it scares me stupid for some silly reason
    That bath picture is brilliant. Well done on the climbing frame, it is more scary from the watching perspective than being up there.

    • TheBoyAndMe says

      It has been rather trying, to say the least! I'm dreadful with vomit, can cope with anything else just not that! I'm rather chuffed with the bath picture too, a good end to the week after all.

  8. says

    Oh no to all the illness! How horrid! I love the do it yourself age change on the Lego! Great idea and oh so true. Us adults love Lego as much as the kids. Right?

  9. says

    Oh, I'm sorry you've been feeling so rubbish 🙁 Here's hoping that next week is sickness free. Changing the age range on the Lego is genius and I love the last photo, that's my favourite x

    • TheBoyAndMe says

      It does seem to be so far, thank goodness! I'm rather fond of the last photo too, thanks for commenting.

  10. says

    gosh i do hope you hare feeling much much better honey i had a similar bug recently and i have every empathy. I hope you have a far better week next week honey x

  11. says

    That totally sucks. Well done you for not giving up in the face of severe adversity. And you are so right to take a carer's day. Too often we feel guilty about that. We are needed at home. End of story

  12. says

    Oh no, what a week! I hope you all feel better really soon. I love the first photo! He looks so high up! And the age change on the Lego is brilliant! Seems daft that it is only suitable up to 12 years .. who doesn't love Lego?!

    • TheBoyAndMe says

      I know, so restrictive right? I do believe that our house is about to become a LEGO shrine, things are taking off!

    • TheBoyAndMe says

      I was slightly alarmed with him going that high, but he did it very safely, and I know it's only going to get worse!

  13. says

    Happy Birthday MrTBaM – hope enjoyed his age appropriate lego. Love the picture of the Boy in the bath – he is such a cutie.
    Hope you are feeling better xx

    • TheBoyAndMe says

      We went into the LEGO shop earlier and there were sets that started at 16+, so I've no idea what was going on with that packaging.

  14. says

    Bleugh to feeling rough, and hopefully you'll all be back to good health soon.

    N doesn't even get past one foot on the bottom of those rope climbing frames, dreading the time when he'll be like yours and scrambling up

    • TheBoyAndMe says

      This time last year The Boy wasn't past the bottom layer of those climbing frames, watch out because it'll happen soon enough.

    • TheBoyAndMe says

      I know, tell me about it! He seems to have grown in confidence so quickly and come on in leaps and bounds!

  15. says

    So sorry you have had another week of illness – it's horrible when you catch what they have had, especially when they are still so needy! I love that you changed the LEGO age limits!

    • TheBoyAndMe says

      That's exactly it! My husband had to take the day off work because there's no way I could look after The Boy!

  16. says

    The new look blog looks fab x
    I hope everyone feels much better soon, I love the photo of the boy up the spider web climbing frame well done for taking the photo I wouldn't have been able to look.
    Thank you for hosting 365 each week.

  17. su tyler says

    I know what you mean about the climbing frame. It is high!
    Ah boiled lemonade.. Takes me back – used to that when poorly too.
    Love the age change on the Lego.

    • TheBoyAndMe says

      I was too wary to try boiled coke, not a nice flavour to have coming back up the other way! And yes, that climbing frame is proper high in Roath Park!

  18. says

    You don't need me to tell you which is my favourite photo for the week do you?
    So glad the boy is fully recovered and hopefully you have recovered from your horrendous week too x

  19. says

    i hope Mr TBaM enjoyed his birthday and i think Lego is for any age really!!
    so sorry to read that you have all been feeling ill the last couple of weeks 🙁 I hope that you are all feeling muhc better now
    Burton has been climbing up those frames to the top for almost a year now and i hate it unti he is back down standing next to me – and now Jenson want to climb eeeeeek!
    I really like the photo of him looking at the lights/bubbles, i wa snot able to determine what it is exactly but i like the colours in it
    lovely seeing him happily writing by himself 🙂 x

    • TheBoyAndMe says

      Burton has always been so adventurous, but The Boy is getting there slowly bless him. The disco lights in the bath is a small plastic light with dimples all over the cover, the lights change through a variety of colours.
