Things I Know

8 Jul

What a rollercoaster week it’s been in our household !

Sickness has run rampant over here and there were some fragile moments where I thought I was going to lose my head.

I,  for one am glad that it’s Friday – not because the weekend is around the corner (like that makes a difference to us mums…), but because it looks like the boys are finally on the mend.

Linking back to the lovely Shae at Yay For Home! for my list of “Things I Know”

Starting with the obvious:

Dealing with sick twins is really, really, REALLY hard work.  Due to his wheezy cough Little K has been on asthma preventer medication as well as ventolin.  In the meantime, Little N has had a nose running like a crazy tap and was up and down with a fever.  It’s been heartbreaking to see them in such discomfort; not being able to understand what’s going on with their little bodies.

Staying all day in your pyjamas is one thing.  Actually having a morning shower, then changing into a fresh pair of pyjama bottoms was my way of surrendering to another day of indoor confinement and concentrating on getting the twinlets better.

Sexy ? Yes ?

Grabbing two take-away coffees is a great contingency plan when facing a day with grizzly sick twinlets.

$2 calculators are a great substitute for mobile phones yet still make a great distraction for the twinlets.  Also, we no longer need to worry about cell radiation.

"Two squared equals...twin trouble ???"

It only takes three special (and secret) ingredients to make these “never fail” scones.  A big thanks to an old high school friend who entrusted me with the recipe.  If I’m really nice to her, I’m sure she’ll let me share it with you all.  In the meantime, can you guess what the ingredients might be ???

The photo doesn't do these scrumptious babies justice...

I owe a big thank you to everyone for their support, love and caring comments on my blog this week.  You guys all played an integral part in getting me through these rough few days.

Hugs and love.

See you next week xxx

    So good to hear the boys are on the mend! Hope that makes thing a bit easier for you and them.
    Those calculators are a fabulous idea! The Monkey has an obsession with phones and remote controls – task of the day is now to find him a calculator!
    I think I use lemonade, cream and flour for my scones (although I might be mistaken, even with only a few ingredients I still have to check everytime I make them :-P)
    Happy Friday!!!!!

    Hope everyone is well again very very soon!!

    I’m wondering if your scones have the same three ingredients as my never fail ones… I blogged them a while ago and they are always delicious!

    Love the calculators, great play idea 😀

    So sorry that your boys have been so unwell! Poor little poppets. Such a tough gig this parenting thing is – you poor poor thing!

    Pyjamas all day is the way to go in desparate times! And yes, very sexy they are!

    I was going to guess what Natalie said too. Though when I’ve tried it with those 3 ingredients it never works! (must be me though – I’ve not mastered scones/baking yet!).

    I hope things improve soon! xxx

    The calculators are a brilliant idea! Sorry to hear the little ones have been ill.. I am glad they are on the mend.

    I also vote for the SR flour, cream and lemonade recipe.

    From one mum with a household of sickies to another, I hope your little ones are 100% soon. It’s never much fun – most of all for us!
    And there’s nothing more comfy than a day in your PJs!! hehe! 🙂

    Hope everyone is well very soon-love the PJs!

    I hope your twins are completely recovered soon. Sick kids is an exhausting job. Good idea changing into the clean jammies. If you’re going to be stuck home all day dealing with sick kids, you may as well be comfy!

    Those scones look delicious!
