I don’t know if ‘Meh’ is actually a word as classified by the English Dictionary, but that is definitely the kind of week I have had this week. Not bad, not particularly good. Just meh. So so. Mediocre.
Yesterday I panicked thinking that I hadn’t taken a single photo on my big camera this week, and hardly any on my iPhone either. This is quite unusual for me as if I haven’t taken many on my DSLR I normally at least I have taken lots on my phone, but it just hasn’t happened this past week. We went out to the most gorgeous little tea room yesterday and I took my camera, before realising that I had forgotten the memory card. Total fail. I was cross with myself, before actually stepping back and thinking that I shouldn’t force these things.
The reality is I haven’t felt like taking photos this week. It’s been a really hectic one, we are in the midst of having our living room redecorated and as such it’s been a bit stressful with two small people needing entertaining while ceilings are replastered, electricians are rewiring and walls are painted. Our entire house has been turned upside down and although it will be more than worth it in the end, it’s been a long week.
To top it all it’s been another one full of germs. Mads has had a poorly week, I have never felt her so hot as she was at the start, and she just hasn’t been herself. All she wanted to do was snuggle on the sofa and watch TV, but unfortunately because of the decorating that just wasn’t possible. Mr E came down with it towards the end of the week, and had to have a day off work which rarely happens and as I am typing this I am also feeling pretty out of sorts. Our TV and broadband also stopped working at the start of the week, which wasn’t ideal when you work from home and have a poorly girl who just wants to relax.
But between the hecticness and the bugs, we have had some nice times. It hasn’t been tough, just not one of our best weeks. Just ‘meh’.
The above photo was literally one of the only photos I took this week. It’s an iPhone jobby again, but I love it all the same. I find that while obviously I prefer the photos I take with my big camera, you can easily capture much more emotion and rawness using a camera that isn’t quite so in your face.
After bathtime and story time, we cuddle. That’s just what we do. All four of us snuggled up in our bed having a cuddle. LL is getting so much more interactive nowadays and will now cuddle into you and say ‘Ahhh’. She loves bare skin and will often pull down my top so that she can lay next to the warmth of my skin. It’s very sweet.
Mads loves to cuddle her sister. And we love to cuddle them both.
So that’s what we do. And even when you have had a ‘meh’ day, wrapping your arms round these two little ladies before they go off to the land of nod makes everything feel instantly better.
