The dreaded sickness bug

Last week the twins went to their first festival, a little one in Hazel Grove called Headlands Festival.

They loved the music and playing with their cousins Marcy and Johnny. All the kids in our group flocked around the twins, children are fascinated with them and interestingly always get their names right. Young kids always know who is who, it is only adults that get confused!

A day or two after the festival Tamsin was struck with a nasty sickness bug. Probably caught from the festival….and it was horrendous. Phoebe was really upset Tamsin was being sick and was wretching next to her even though she wasn’t ill. Trying to settle Phoebe and look after Tamsin was tough and resulted in a long 24 hours.

Once Tamsin recovered, Phoebe fell ill with the sickness bug. Then me, then Sam and then my brother who was visiting from London on his first week off since Christmas! The girls are also teething so the combination was hard work. 

I have to say for myself, been violently sick whilst having a baby wriggle in your tummy was not the best feeling I have had. I almost didn’t make my 20 week scan due to feeling so weak but I dragged myself to it to check the baby was ok. All is good thank goodness.

So as we recovered from the bug we have done odd bits but nothing too extravagant. We visited Grandpa and Kerrie down in Telford where we went to a fab farm where the girls fed the goats. They loved it and giggled all the way round.

They helped my mum trim the hedge in her garden and visited a park in Wilmslow whilst Sam had a puncture repaired on our car.

My mum also gave the twins Play-doh for the first time much to their delight. They played with my brothers Danny and Joe. Danny is a professional model maker so as you can imagine his Play-doh figures were brilliant. My duck on the other hand was shocking. My Play-doh skills were more rusty than I thought and I am going to keep quiet that I have an A-Level in Art!
