Well, it has been a tough week….i had the flu, the the girls have had some sort of tummy bug that has seen them with diarreah for over a week now and now his patient self and the teen seem to be coming down with a cold! Welcome to summer!
I have to admit that i am not loving my cloth nappies this week…when you have twins with diarreah it becomes a lot of work and washing! If i never hose out another pooey nappy it might be too soon!I gave in a few days and reverted to disposables but quickly realised that most of their pants are made to fit their cloth bots so they kept falling down!I think we are over the worst of it…you feel so helpless when they are sick.
This morning the girls were so grumpy so i packed the rug and basket and we went up to the top paddock for some fresh air…it is absolutely amazing what outside does for their dispositions. It was a lovely morning and i really enjoyed seeing them wander about talking to the chookies and exploring nature. We have a lot of birds and Tara loves to just watch them fly overhead.
I also added some more palm fronds to the chook's tractor for shade. They work like a charm and the shadows change naturally throughout the day as well as helping them feel a little safer around the kookburra's and territorial magpies!
TODAY'S HAPPY MOMENT
I really needed one today and coming outside was the perfect remedy…..the girls started the day grumpy and teary but made a remarkable recovery outside. They enjoyed their picnic while ‘talking' to the chooks.
And we all loved watching the lorikeets outside the nest in this tree. They were too quick for me to catch in a photo but they are a cute couple and have built a nest in the fork of this tree..complete with a twig they have pushed out to the side to use as a perch…amazing!
I hope you ll had a good morning too…..thanks for stopping by!

Some time in the fresh air really does wonders! Glad you are on the mend 🙂
Thanks Jaime…was hoping for the same today but looks like rain is setting in!At least feeling healthier!
I always find that outdoors is great with kids unless it is just too hot and you are not near water. Hope you are all feeling much better now.
