I've also been hit with illness this week which hasn't really helped with the whole focusing on my assignment, but I've done more than I thought I was going to, so I'm thankful for that. A sore throat and earache had me knocked out for a couple of days this week and I really struggled. I couldn't keep my hearing aids in at all yesterday as my ears hurt too much - noises would go straight through me. Eating was a chore as I could only really eat soft foods, at a almost painful rate. It made me feel so guilty as all I wanted was to be alone and tucked up in the utter silence and just try and get through it. It relieved me that Chris had a couple of days off so he could take over on that front, so I think I wasn't 'missed' as my pair are complete Daddy's boys (even my baby - SOB!).
I'm glad that today it's over with and we're able to enjoy our weekend together!
The whole illness thing didn't go well with the trying to eat better this week, despite it only being 3 days, I stuck to plan and lost 6lbs which I was completely blown away about.. I had been a lot better and not picking at any naughty stuff, mostly because I didn't fancy it. I was so happy and it's really given me the motivation and inspiration I needed to get going - It also made me realise how much rubbish I ate beforehand! It's kind of exciting to have a new venture to begin especially with such a great start - I love that it coincides with my New Year's resolutions!
We've started talking about the future this week and in quite different dynamics. Freddie keeps saying things like "I wish there were more people who lived in our house" and "you're the only girl in our house aren't you mum? I think we need more" - on the way home from school on Thursday he started talking about our house and then saying "I'd like another Noah". It's really, really cute. However we haven't exactly planned on any additions for a little while, but I guess it's nice to have his approval?
We've also began thinking and questioning holidays because now the boys are growing up, it'd be nice to have some proper family time. One being Disneyland - I personally really want to go, I've never been abroad and it's an exciting prospect but it's all so much money. It's a lovely daydream to have though when you're feeling ill and not much else going on at the moment. I guess we'll have to keep trying on the lottery ;)
