On the mend

Well, it's been a long couple of weeks, but we're finally all on the mend round here. We're all still coughing a bit, but the colds are clearing up and the Podlings are almost back to their usual bonny selves. They were actually able to play in the garden for a little while yesterday. Between rain and illness, they haven't been able to play outside for ages and they clearly loved it. Lily still seems to tire quickly as she is still a bit under the weather, but I was so glad they were able to go out and get some fresh air. Children don't like being cooped up for too long.

We went to toddler group this morning for the first time in a couple of weeks. We all enjoy this morning out together and it was nice to be able to go again. Tom looks so much older than the other children there now. He's the oldest in the group by at least a year as a lot of people seem to send their three and four year olds to nursery these days. Luckily, Tom loves playing with the younger children and seems quite amused by the toddling babies. Lily spends most of the time at toddler group playing with the toy kitchen and play food. I'd love to get her a kitchen of her own for Christmas, but I have absolutely no idea where we'd put it!
Anyway, with any luck we will all continue to get better and we can get back to some semblance of normality round here. Being the house of disease for a fortnight means I am now totally behind on the housework and laundry and I have a lot of catching up to do. With that in mind, I guess I should stop procrastinating and go and do something productive!
