Happy Friday tribe!
This post is a long time coming.
The past five weeks have been a bit of a blur. We were taken hostage by the mumps. Each of my girls had it, in turn, since the week before Christmas! Isabella had her first day back at school, yesterday! The 25 January 2018!
The mumps has also delayed us from meeting the newest member of our clan, baby Jude Alexander! The first boy in 15 years! We have had to video call our monkey, and will need to wait another 3 weeks before we get to snuggle him! I mean really! My first nephew!
Shame man! The girls were hard hit. Their faces expanding to double it’s size (needed to be seen to be believed), fevers, loss of appetite and terrible pain – and the heat of Cape Town!
Even though the mumps disrupted our festive season some what, it also forced us into ease. That’s my silver lining.
So all we did was – we kept calm and carried on – and hired Blue Bloods – starting with season 1. Thank God for the Reagan family, and pizza!
The lesson for me was, ‘it is what it is’ and we had to roll with it. And so we did.
So here’s to a mumps free weekend!
Have a wonderful weekend with your loved ones!
