The Ordinary Moments ’16 #6 & #7 | Fresh Air Is The Only Cure

Firstly, I’m sorry I never got around to posting last weeks Ordinary Moments post but for the majority of this week Bella and I have been cooped up at home as she’s had Conjunctivitis. Which let me tell you, is no fun at all, especially when your two year old wakes up numerous times through the night wailing because her poor puffy little eyes are stuck together. Seriously gross and so so sad.

So this week I have been playing nurse, which if i’m honest, is much harder than I thought. The terrible two’s are in full swing on a normal day, let alone when she’s feeling under the weather. Some serious patience has been needed. I suppose I’m just not used to staying at home all week as Bella and I are normally quite busy on my two days off during the week, we’ve both definitely been feeling a little stir crazy. We’ve tried our best to keep busy at home though and make the most of our time together just the two of us, we’ve done painting, played with play doh a million times and we’ve even baked on three separate occasions. It feels like Frozen has been on repeat but it does mean we’ve enjoyed plenty of sofa snuggles together.

By Thursday however, I had to get out the house, we all needed some fresh air. I’m sure even the poor dog was craving it too. There is only so many times you can tolerate a two year old shoving food in your face and bringing you toys and insisting you ‘PLAAAY RUUUBBYYY’. Sorry pooch, it’s just because she loves you, honest. 

Despite a frosty start, the sun was shining on Thursday and it was perfect weather for a dog walk. We headed to beautiful Bewl Water with my sister and niece to blow away the cobwebs. The views are absolutely gorgeous as you walk around the water and it’s always so lovely and peaceful there, definitely the perfect place to clear your head. It’s one of my favourite spots to walk the dog and the glorious sunshine made me so excited for Spring to arrive and for lots of walks here when it’s a bit less muddy 😉

A walk was exactly what Bella needed, she was just so happy giggling away as she ran after the dogs and splashed around in the many muddy puddles. Sometimes fresh air really is the only cure and we’re very lucky to live in such a beautiful part of the country, with so many gorgeous spots right on our doorstep.

Here’s a few of my favourite snaps from our walk.

    What gorgeous photos and her little bobble hat is absolutely adorable. It is so hard when you are cooped up at home with them but they aren’t ‘that’ sick if you know what I mean- when Mads had the chicken pox she was fine (ish) in herself and it made us both go stir crazy. It sounds like a lovely way to blow away the cobwebs. x

      Thank you Katie. I know, isn’t it the sweetest?! I’m desperate for a matching one in my size! Definitely, she didn’t seem that unwell at all, we just couldn’t risk spreading her germs! Luckily it’s all cleared up now and we’re back to our normal routine thankfully! xo

    Gorgeous pictures! I definitely agree that fresh air is a necessity some days, the baby doesn’t really notice yet but I love getting out the house and stretching my legs! The pram usually sends him to sleep which is an added bonus too. #MarvMondays

    What adorable pictures! I have to agree, you most definitely do live in a lovely part of the country with those beautiful surroundings on your doorstep. Its difficult when little ones are poorly and you are forced to stay at home until they recover, so its great that you managed to escape the house and get out towards the end of the week. My little one had conjunctivitis late last year and it was pretty terrible! Hopefully your little one is recovering from it if she hasnt already.. Thanks for linking up to #MarvMondays. Emily

      Thanks for your lovely comment Emily. It was so horrible for her, luckily she’s over it now.. Instead it’s been replaced with a cold! Never ending isn’t it?! #MarvMondays xo
