Schools Out

The summer holidays have started and what was to be a Summer of solo parenting has taken a curve ball already. I'm still solo parenting but the Mr was taken ill on the first day away and is now residing in a hospital 225 miles away.
The up side is he will be home in the next few days and will need some time off work to fully recover. Yay! Daddy will be home :-)
The down-side is he wont be well and it's not going to be a 'holiday', in fact we have had to cancel our holiday. Boo!

As a result of fates attempt to tip me over the edge, I had to do the hardest things this week:
Tell the kids daddy was poorly and in hospital - cue tears.
Tell the kids daddy was poorly and in hospital and it was too far to go and see him - cue more tears.
Tell the kids we couldn't go on holiday on Sunday because we will have to, as some point, go and bring Daddy home - cue even more tears.
And I thought I was going to have a whole evening without chocolate - cue weeping myself dry (until I found the 'Make your own truffles kit' from Tesco).

So we have been trying to keep our chins up:

Five Go Blogging 365project week 30 2013

Imaginary space travels on ships that out-stare you.
Having tea with 21 school friends.
Daring climbs at the park.
Guessing games over a babyccino and a dish of jelly beans
Lego bed invasion
Bubble fights

Sorry for gloom. Bit p'd off. Normal service to resume as soon as the Mr is home.

  1. So sorry to hear your OH is ill and that you needed to cancel your holiday, hope he's better very soon and you get to re-book it!

  2. Oh God, I'm sorry that life is about to become a little bit harder but at least he'll be with you, another adult to talk to. Hope he's better soon?

    Love the worm's eye view photo of your girl on the climbing frame.

  3. Oh poor you - especially having to cancel your holiday as well :( Hope Mr gets better soon and you have an awesome summer hols. The pictures are fab as usual - love the electric plug one - brlliant. Do your kids think you are bonkers when you take pics of strange things though - mine def do!
