Housework it is then!

So for Juneathon Day 8 my main contribution was an hour of housework – additional effort in the fact I did the vacuuming which included the stairs!

There had been plans to do a kilometre (or possibly a mile) ‘run’ with my kiddies, but a poorly Blue One with a very high temperature (39.3 degrees celcius at its highest) who was a bit tearful (though he did eat his dinner bless him) put paid to that idea!  He kept falling asleep today, which is very unlike him, and he went in the pushchair when we collected his sister from school – which he hasn’t done in months! He had a football session this afternoon where he just sat on my lap for 45 mins – his temp hadn’t been that high when I left the house! Praying a good nights sleep will have him back to his bouncy happy self – though after Calpol, he was more himself and wanted to play… as it was time to get ready for bed!!! Obviously!!!

This is only a 5 minute journey – and he didn’t even play, just sat on my lap for 45 minutes!!!

I’ve turned on the pedometer bit of MapMyWalk – a photo of today below – but I am not entirely convinced by the figures if I am honest!

I also did eight toe touches, eight sit and reaches and eight sit ups/tummy crunches…

Hope everyone else has had a good Juneathon Day 8!

Best laid plans of mice and mummys!

Well the plan for Janathon Day 8 was to go on a nice evening run with my lovely friends Deputy Helen and Kay – but this was thwarted by the blue one having chicken pox!

His sister had it two weeks ago and this Tuesday – exactly 14 days after the Pink One came out in the spots the Blue One did. The Pink One was rather lucky and didn’t suffer too badly, she had enough spots to know she’d had chicken pox but she wasn’t covered – the Blue One is another story entirely!

He’s being very good with it, but I was at work today and so he was with his nanny and grandad all day (who he adores) and when he came home was rather forlorn and crying, and telling me he doesn’t feel well – so I knew going out for a run was out of the window! We will attempt to try again tomorrow!

So grateful for the Wii – least I was still able to do some exercise (and on Wii Fit Plus my Wii age was 25 – rather chuffed with that)! Though since using it, parts of me are aching that I didn’t know could ache! Cuddling my hot water bottle this evening to sooth my poor body – I need to get back to running, never ached like this after a good run and my first 10km race is rapidly looming!!! Argh!!!

Want to be wearing these again...

No videos to amuse you this evening I’m afraid! I’m currently typing this in bed with my pox covered little boy next to me watching Peppa Pig – it’s 11pm, this doesn’t bode well – this is a little boy who is normally asleep by 7.30pm! Oh well – this is just one of those things you have to deal with when you have the absolute honour of being someone’s mummy!

I bid you all goodnight – hopefully mine will feature some sleep…
