Daffodils and rainy day activities

I haven't blogged for ages...we've all been poorly recently. My daughter had a temperature of 103 which is always scary, thankfully the paracetamol and ibuprofen kicked in and her fever calmed down. Turns out she had a nasty ear infection which has been resolved with antibiotics. I always find that illness knocks our day-to-day life out of shape for quite a while...particularly when I go down with same illness a few days later.

Currently my brain feels like a huge lump of cotton wool and I haven't had the energy or motivation to blog. But, when I became a Mum I soon realised that illness does not cut the mustard with children and you have to plough on even when you feel like crawling back into bed!

So we've been hand painting, cutting and sticking and admiring our daffodils planted back in Autumn.

Illness has meant we haven't ventured much further than our own back garden. But with the sun making an appearance and signs of Spring popping up here & there, it's one of the nicest places to be.

My daughter and I planted some bulbs back in September last year. They started to burst through the soil just before Christmas and are growing bigger everyday. Hopefully they will be flowering soon. I thing Spring bulbs are one of the most welcome sights after a horrible, wet Winter.

Weather and illness has dictated that we've spent a lot of time indoors recently. We've done lots of hand painting and getting the 'craft jar' out. Both activities involve lots of mess and fun, which we're big fans of in our house!

Hopefully we can stay lurgy-free for a while now and we'll be out and about more often...roll on Spring!

Lovely to see the fruits of your labours back in the autumn. They will be bursting into colour soon, we are ablaze with daffodils here on the farm, I think the mild, if wet winter has brought them on early. Thank you for sharing on Country Kids
