A Sick Baby, a Museum and a Birthday.

I'm a sucker for personal blog posts, I love writing them for myself and my own blog and I love reading them on other blogs. So when I get the chance I like to do a sort of weekend-round up, and write about what I've been up to. I think these sort of posts are lovely for when I look back through my blog and stumble across old memories from times gone by. 

So what have I been up to lately? Well, Ethan has been unwell. :( I'm pretty sure that he has some sort of stomach bug. He was tired all of the time to begin with, along with the all of the normal (rather gross) symptoms often associated with a stomach bug, but he's not longer tired. In fact he's back to his usual self - happy, laughing, alert.. but the sickness etc.. that's all still going strong..  :( We've been lucky enough that this is actually the first time that he's had any sort of illness, but because it is the first time, I've got that new mum worry and it's at it's height. I may give the Doc a call tomorrow.. just for some advice. 

Asides from that, we ventured into Oxford yesterday. It wasn't the best idea we've ever had.. it turned in to quite a nightmare to be honest. VERY limited parking, no ATM's to pay for parking, 2 hours limit on parking, no wifi, terrible traffic jams.. and that's before we'd even started. I suppose on passing that 'park and ride' sign it would have been a better idea to turn that car back around and take full advantage of whatever 'park and ride' had to offer. We did get to see part of a museum we'd gone to see, but our car parking time ran out very quickly, so we ended up skipping a lot of it. 

Today, we headed out to a local pub for my Mums Birthday lunch, which was quite nice. I can't believe that it's her birthday already.. how can January nearly be over already? It's crazy right?!

So yeah, that's a little snippet of what we've been up to. Have you been up to anything nice lately?


  1. I'm sorry to hear Ethan has been unwell. I so hope he has 100% very soon. I can relate to your parking frustration...so irritating when you can't find somewhere and it affects the rest of the day! xx

  2. Aw poor Ethan, hope your little man is feeling better xx
