Day 280 – Sunday 6th October
Not much planned for today. Eldest went to her horse riding but as it had been raining heavily myself and Bee didn’t go to see the horses after as the entrance into the stables gets really muddy. Had a look at Bee’s homework…she has to do a project about a country she has been to/wants to go to. Decided to write some facts about the United Arab Emirates as she went to Dubai when she was little.
Day 281 – Monday 7th October
Not much planned for today, popped to the shops to get a few bits and pieces. The picture is of Bee practicing her Arabic letters. Her teacher asked me to try to spend at least 10 mins daily with her to practice them. I had been a bit lazy as with school and all her after school activities and quran classes by the time we are home theres just time for dinner, relaxing a bit and then bed. Decided to try the 10 mins in the morning. We are usually ready with time to spare so seems the perfect time to practice them.
Also quickly wrote a post about the Peterborough STEM festival we will be attending on Saturday.
Day 282 – Tuesday 8th October
Another completely lazy to be honest. Managed to catch up with some blog work. Finally got a post live about our trip to Edinburgh which was last summer….only taken me over a year to write it! Munched away on some crisps I had found…they were so moreish.
Day 283 – Wednesday 9th October
Wednesday morning was horrible. Bee woke up around 1am vomiting…got it on the hallway carpet, the bathroom floor, the cupboard and a bit on her bedroom carpet too. She kept randomly vomiting until 6.30am so both of us didn’t get much sleep. She had vomited on her bean bag and teddy. I couldn’t save the bean bag…but put the teddy in the washing machine and hoped for the best. Thankfully it survived. I also had a busy day planned today…had a governor meeting in the morning and was hoping to see a friend who had had a baby boy over the weekend…but with the husband still away and no-one to look after Bee I had to cancel everything. Plus I wouldn’t go to see a newborn baby incase I was carrying the virus that Bee had.
Day 284 – Thursday 10th October
Another day stuck at home. Although Bee was much better she had a slight temp and said she felt wobbly. So decided to rest up. I was meant to be meeting up with a friend for a catch up and some tea but obviously had to cancel that too! She had to be sick on the days I actually had stuff planned rather than on the days I was doing nothing! So while she watched TV downstairs I caught up with some programmes on Netflix on the laptop in my room.
Day 285 – Friday 11th October
Bee went back to school today. I was hoping to go into town to get some bits and pieces but got a message saying that Hermes would deliver a parcel between 10am -2pm. So decided to stay at home. However at 1.30pm I got another message saying it would be delivered 2-6pm so my whole morning was wasted for nothing! I was not impressed. No pictures taken today except for one of Rosie who seems fond of hugging and sitting next to shoes.
Day 286 – Saturday 12th October
A picture just for the sake of it today as all we have done is lie around and watch TV. The other child now woke up vomiting but thankfully she made it to the bathroom in time so no clean up after! We were meant to be going to the STEM festival but with the eldest clearly having the vomiting bug…and my stomach feeling a bit dodgy it was not a good idea. Such a shame as we were looking forward to going.
You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!
The homework for Bee looks interesting.
Good luck with practicing the Arabic letters. It sounds like Bee has a very busy time of it.
I do like those crisps. I usually pick the Doritos out but eat the rest. hehehe
I hope you all feel better soon!

Must admit I was tempted to take the Doritos out too!
Hope you all feel better soon In Shaa Allah!

Oh dear, doesn’t sound like a good week! Must have been a nightmare with all that cleaning up. I hope your eldest is feeling better now. What a shame you got to miss the STEM festival.
I hadn’t realised there were quite so many Arabic letters! That is a lot to learn.

Yep I am not very good with cleaning up vomit! In total there are 28 letters to the Arabic alphabet but with all the various different sounds they can make it ends up a lot
Hope the children feel better soon. There seem to be a lot of Arabic letters to learn – I can see why doing some each day was recommended.

It total there are 28 letters in the Arabic alphabet but they can make various different sounds so does end up a lot to learn
never seen those mix ups, a nice idea for something different.
Nice to bring your kids up bi-lingual, does the school not teach them Arabic?
Oh dear at both the girls being sick and messing up the plans.

With the arabic it is more to learn the Quran. I know the sounds but not necessarily the meanings of words when they are joined up. No the schools don’t teach Arabic. At secondary it is more French or Spanish.
Hope everyone’s over the sickness now. I’m so glad N doesn’t have to do projects at his school.
The eldest still hasn’t fully recovered yet! I hate the projects to be honest. Especially when we have to get crafty
The Arabic learning looks interesting. I do like a bit of Netflix myself. And how cute is that soft toy. Busy week for you x
Not really that busy to be honest seeing as been stuck at home most of the time with sick kids
Awww no, so sorry to hear everyone has been unwell – I hope you are feeling much better and have finally managed to venture into the great outdoors! Netflix is always good to catch up on when you are unwell! SIm x
Thank you, we are all feeling better now
Sorry to hear the sickness bug hit, bt glad you could save the teddy. Hate waiting in for parcels which get delayed. #365
It is so annoying isn’t it?
Oh no, what a week! Hope you are all bug-free now. Glad you managed to save the teddy.
The Arabic letters look so elegant. Well done to Bee and you for practicing in the morning.
Yes thankfully all bug free now
oh no to the vomit bug, i hope everyone has recovered. I do hope Bee enjoyed her homework about the UAE
Thankfully we are all over it!
Oh no! We came down with something too a couple of weeks ago. There is so much flying around. I don’t handle vomit very well so sounds like you did a great job to me. Hope you didn’t come down with anything.

Thankfully I escaped! I did have a tummy ache but then didn’t eat anything all day
