Jacob has been ill, his dad has been ill, I have been ill and so have the grandparents.
I had to have 2 days off work, something I hate doing, Jacob's dad has been really busy with work and everything has got on top of me a bit.
Luckily I have some wonderful friends and family around me to help as this weekend; I needed a break and didn't know what to do! Jacob's dad had gone on his yearly university reunion, I was still feeling rough and like I had no energy left, Jacob had been up lots in the night with teething I think and I was rock bottom. I called my mum to help me and luckily she was feeling a bit better and came for a shoulder to cry on and took Jacob so that I could have a couple of hours to myself. Then a surprise... Jacob's dad had asked his best man to drop round with some flowers to cheer me up! We had a nice cuppa and a chat and all of a sudden I had friends and family around me when I thought I was all alone.
Revitalised after the tea and with time to myself I got the house all clean and tidy (well sort of) and had time to take care of myself a bit. I dried my hair for the first time in a good few weeks, painted my nails and got dressed nicely.
|Lovely flowers and a clean kitchen :)|
Then there was still time to have a good afternoon with the little man and I'm sure I was a much better mummy to be around than I would have been before the help!
I really appreciate the special people in my life who helped me to start feeling normal again today.
What do you do to help you feel you again after a tough week?
