If you heard that thumping sound about 3am Tuesday morning, that was me crashing back to earth after my girls weekend on Fraser Island. I returned home to the news that the Little Sister has contracted whatever frightful freaking lurgy that has plagued the Big Sister for the past three weeks.
Since then, I've spent my day jamming fresh fruit and veg into their gobs and my nights in one of their rooms, soothing their heaving chests, rubbing their backs and saying silent prayers in the dark that they are better soon. Bearhands has been a trooper, doing his fair share of nocturnal parenting - no mean feat for a man who managed to sleep through both their infancies. I'm hoping we have a chance to go back to sleeping in the same bed sometime between now and Summer!
Thanks to everyone who linked their posts in last week's I'm Pinning Around Pinterest Link Party - there was something for everyone in that link up!
Natural New Age Mum shared twenty (yes, twenty) recipes using just two (yes, two) real food ingredients. Such great snack ideas!
We all know I'm a sucker for a well-photographed cake, so it's no surprise that Little Wolff's clementine + chia cake is one of my favourites from last week.
Finally, a post that I'm certain will help out countless new mums - how to wash your modern cloth nappies. Thanks Tully + Mishka.
If you’re new to the link up, here’s the lowdown on the I’m Pinning Around Pinterest Link Party:
- The party will start every Wednesday morning and close at midnight on Friday. All welcome.
- Bloggers: if you’d like to join in: share one post that you think is perfect for Pinterest, then browse the other posts, find at least two that interest you, visit the site and pin directly from the original post. I’d love it if you’d help spread the word about the link too – use the sharing buttons after you add your link. Let's go crazy this week and add a hashtag into the equation - how about #pinningaround?
- Readers: I hope that this will be a fun way to find some new blogs to enjoy.
- Each week I’ll choose a few of my favourites to showcase the following week.
