I'm Nina, a photographer, film maker and forever wanderer.  Passionate about nature, the great outdoors and all of life's adventures.  This is the place where I keep all my 'field notes'

Cough, cough

I just want to say a big 'thank you' - to all of you - for your lovely get well soon messages to me and the littlest Boo.

It's the one things I love so much about the land of 'Blog' - I always know that no matter how rubbish I'm feeling or silly it seems to say 'I'm not well - again!'
I am not alone.

For me I think being a mother can be one of the loneliest jobs sometimes especially when you're stuck inside for what seems like months on end nursing, caring, tending to your flock with no reward, but the satisfying feeling you have when you see your little ones grow into beautiful, wonderful, wondrous beings.

Though at times when you're in the thick of it, it isn't always easy to see.

I think the hardest thing for me is not the being ill or even being stuck in - though watching a little one struggle with illness is never a joyous occasion. It's the disappointment of cancelling arrangements, letting little ones, people, friends and family down.

No play dates, missed parties, left out of occasions, not being able to attend on the school trip. Missing out on clubs and gatherings, friends, adventures and all that kind of stuff are all the things I feel so badly about when one of my children are ill.

Anyhow, all I really wanted to do today is pop in and say 'thank you' again for all your kind words and thoughts.

For me even a simply 'hello' cheers me up no end which is why I love to blog as I do - the contact means/speaks volumes to me, not how many.

I do know I am a fine one to talk and yes (again) 'I know' I've probably said this a hundred times or so before - openly and personally - I do wish I had more time to say 'hello' in return. I do try my best and always tend to do this via email - if I can find it that is. I am so rubbish with technology!

Well with all that said - coughs have died down and temperatures vamoosed thanks to a combination of natural remedies and paracetamol.

I feel like we've consumed our fair share of ice lollies over these past couple of days and to be honest I wouldn't care two jots if I never saw another one this side of Summer.

Have a beautiful day - I think the mist is finally starting to clear.
