Finally Some Sun

This Winter has been long, and wet. VERY long and VERY wet.

This week was a particularly tough one as I’ve been on antibiotics due to an infected bite wound on my nipple, Tiger only feeds from one side and it was EXCRUCIATING at it’s worst, like I actually thought I was going to pass out every time he latched on, so I only fed him if I really had to, he didn’t react well to this as he’s used to feeding as much as he likes so he had lots of proper, flinging himself on the floor and kicking his legs tantrums. Cherry has also been ill with an ear infection, not bad enough for her to be on the sofa all day but bad enough for her to cry about every single little thing (me not being able to put her blanket on properly, me giving her a drink in the wrong colour cup, me not letting her eat mini eggs for breakfast) so the fact we were unable to leave the house all week due to illness and the weather being so bad meant that by the weekend we were suffering with cabin fever, big time.

You can’t imagine how pleased I was to see we were due to finally have some sun this weekend.

We’ve had such  a lovely time. We went for a walk then stopped for lunch at a little tea rooms in the middle of nowhere. We actually got to eat outside too!! Then we went to a local town to walk around and sit in a pub garden which had a little play area that the kids loved.

Cherry wanted me to tie Noddy to  her back so she was carrying her baby like me, so cute!

If you look in the background of the photos below then you can see some of the flooding that has affected our county.





It was so nice to have a little taste of Spring and I can’t wait for it to start properly now.

Have you all been enjoying the sun?

    Lovely photos and stunning scenery, the flood water makes it even more beautiful. I love the little Noddy tied to her back, so cute.

    Oh Jess that sounds awful about the infection, I had the same with Missy Moo, it was excruciating to feed and ended up feeding from one side for so long. I have never felt pain like it and I have given birth twice! I hope that you are on the mend now and it’s easing off. Be careful not to get mastitis. I feel your pain! I hope the sun shining yesterday helped a little. I know how isolated it feels when you are trying to deal with that, feeding on top of the pain and no one else can help. Especially when our little ones aren’t adjusting to the interrupted change in feeding. Lovely pictures of you and your family out to play and soak up that vitamin D. 😉

      Thanks lovely. Yes it wasn’t fun at all! He has never taken a bottle so I couldn’t even miss a feed! On the plus side he has got used to feeding a bit less which is a good thing as if he could he would spend the whole day with my boob in his mouth! x

    Infection sounds very painful, hope you are feeling better. The photos are so lovely, it’s amazing what a difference a little sun shine can make.

    An infected bite wound sounds awful, you poor thing. Just the thought of it made my toes curl. Ebony asks me to tie her rabbit to her sometimes in the same way! So cute :) x

    Oh no, sorry to hear you’ve had a nasty infection. Hope you’re on the mend. Your images are beautiful. Shocking to see the floods in the background. Love the pic of your little one babywearing.

    You’ve really had a hard time of it. How are the antibiotics working? Glad you were able to get out. We really need a break from all this rain!

      They worked! Within about a day it was starting to improve, I didn’t realise how swollen and infected it was until it went down, his little tooth went right through! x

    It has been so lovely to see the sun, I think everyone heaved a huge sigh of relief when the sun made its brief appearance. Sorry to hear you’ve all been suffering so much, it really is the worst time of the year!

    These are lovely photos – I’m so glad we seem to have escaped the worst of the weather up here in Scotland (for once!). Glad the boob is on the mend too (I always wish I’d been able to breastfeed for longer – until someone mentions getting bitten!)

  • Reply The Mummy Diary February 19, 2014 at 8:31 am

    Aww you poor thing both for the nipple and on giving the wrong coloured cup, it’s an easy mistake and happens all the time in our house! 😉 Seriously though my daughter is being the exact same at the moment, I can do nothing right. Glad you got to get out for some gorgeous fresh air, it was certainly much needed here too. Gorgeous pics xx

    Really hope you’re feeling better now – nothing worse than that – especially when you have to keep exposing it to the cause of the pain. But your photos are lovely – looks like a wonderful day out although the flooding is incredible!
