Feeling hot, hot, hot! #WotW

This week my Word of the Week is:


The weather has been lovely hasn't it.....Well it has up here in Northumberland....hehehe We have had sunshine and blue skies every day. The kids have made the most of it. They played out in the back yard all weekend and after school...The paddling pool has been out and they even did some gardening with their Fairy Flowerpots.


Over the weekend and earlier in the week I was suffering with pain in my knee....It was fine when I was sitting but hurt when I walked....I bought some deep heat spray and it seemed to really help....I did nearly gas myself when using it though....Our bathroom is tiny and I thought I would spray it when I was on the loo.....With the door shut there was no ventilation cue the coughing and spluttering for me....My eyes watered and my nose felt like it was burning....Oops. My knee feels a lot better now. Phew!

I think the heat has got to Ellie a bit.....On Wednesday her teacher had said she had been complaining of a sore head at school. She came home and drank so much water she made herself feel sick then started to shiver.....Even though it was so warm she was feeling cold.....She wrapped herself up in her dressing gown and fell asleep watching YouTube videos on the laptop....


She slept most of the evening and was up a lot during the night wanting drinks and a cuddle....So yesterday she had a day off school....She slept on and off all day and then started coughing and snotting....She's now coming down with a cold. Oh joy. So today she will have another day off school. I wouldn't normally keep her off school for a cold but she's just not herself.....

  3. Oh poor Ellie, it does sound like she's really poorly, I hope she's feeling better much soon. I think we've all forgotten that we are in a small place at some time and choked ourselves, lol, I'm glad your knee is feeling a bit better though x

    1. She hasn't been well at all. It's like she's had 2 illnesses at once. She's been better today and now she has the rest of the weekend to recover properly.
      Thank you x

  9. Hope Ellie is better - and you did make me smile about the Deep Heat, it stinks doesn't it? Glad your knee is on the mend. Sounds like you've had better weather than us - we've had rain and fog (!!) but some sun too. Let's hope there's some more of that. Have a fab weekend x #wotw
