That Festive Feeling? {The Ordinary Moments)

December 14, 2014


Festive Feeling

This week has really been a pretty crappy one all round. Lucas just managed his final performance in his nativity on Monday before illness struck and cancelled out the week. One by one we have all been poorly, the poor boys have had a terrible cough and cold. All they want is cuddles is comfort which is easier said than done with three, they have just been completely wiped out. The week has just passed in a blur of calpol and Netflix. I was counting down the minutes until Daddy got home so we could double team them. I had to cancel my Christmas night out which I was so looking forward too and Lucas has missed some lovely festive plans and I’m still not sure he will make it back into nursery this week. I was feeling stressed because I haven’t been able to do anything other than look after my boys. Don’t you feel like you lose perspective a little when you’ve been cooped up? Little things were pushing me over the edge and I was getting worked up about everything I couldn’t do.

I think I was missing the Christmassy feeling, the warm fuzzy glow just hasn’t quite hit me and I love Christmas, especially the build up! I just haven’t had the energy to feel the magic, but we HAD to get out of the house today and of course the only person who would put up with our germ infested selves is my mum. Feeling decidedly ‘bah humbug’ I decided an outing to see her Christmas tree was just what we needed. I dressed the boys in some festive clothes, snotty noses and all, dosed everyone up and we were going to feel Christmassy dammit! Blasting out the Christmas tunes, well not quite blasting as I don’t think we could take it, we packed up our homemade glittery decorations for Nanny’s tree and with some determination managed to get out for a couple of hours. Thank goodness for Nanny’s, for little pudding bum pants and for a real Christmas tree, you have kept me going this week!

    I feel the same! I think it’s being too busy, or the fact i felt unwell the past two days where i’ve not felt ‘festive’ as such… I look forward to slowing down this week and doing a lot more snuggling near the tree (even if it isnt a real one ;)) I love those pudding pants!xx

    Sorry you’ve had a rubbish week lovely but, even when poorly, you have such a beautiful family – pudding bums and all! Merry Christmas x

    I think this trip out of the house is needed. Get well soon to your children =)#TheOrdinaryMoments

    There is just too much cuteness in these photos- firstly the christmas pudding bottoms- SCRUMPTIOUS! And then the photos by the tree. I bet you are feeling a lot more festive now! 🙂 x

    Oh that sounds like a rough week – it’s crazy how ill everyone has been this year, I can’t remember a year like it for lurching from one cold to the next! I love the Christmas Pudding leggings and I’m so glad you have a nice time inspecting the tree and getting all Christmassy!
