This is going to be a relatively short blog post this week as both Teddy and I have been struck down with some horrid gastro bug and have therefore spent most of our time this weekend on the sofa snoozing and feeling sorry for ourselves. Typically, this has also happened during yet another period of lone parenting…… I never thought I would be grateful for Teddy being under the weather but because I have also been ill it has been a hell of lot easier not having to do too much running around after an increasingly speedy 13 month old! However, every cloud has a silver lining etc and one of the bonuses of this weekend has been the lovely snuggly cuddles we have been having. Teddy is a very active, self-sufficient little boy and only usually wants cuddles when it is bed-time. It has therefore been quite nice to have a little boy shaped hot water bottle to cuddle whilst I’ve been watching endless re-runs of Four Weddings, Don’t tell the bride and Keeping up the Kardashians (I like trashy TV and there’s no point trying to hide it as my Sky Box offers plenty of evidence…) I know that moments like this will become ever fleeting as he grows up and so for now I am going to savour every single one.
