Today is the last day of March. Here in Ireland there are signs of spring everywhere. Daffodils, little lambs and it's getting milder. It hasn't gotten any dryer though. Which is pretty typical. No matter what time of the year it is, shower-dodging is the norm.
If you're wondering how we got on with the chicken pox, the ordeal is almost over. To be fair, we were lucky. It really wasn't that bad. Jack was bad tempered and crabby for one day only. And although he was covered in pox, he either heeded my warnings not to scratch, or he just wasn't that itchy. I barely had to touch the cream or medicine. He has coped incredibly well. And we're at the stage now where all the scabs are falling off of their own accord. I'm really looking forward to giving his grubby wee bake a good scrub! I want to just smoosh that little chinchopper between my thumb and fingers, and rub the face cloth furiously over that face. For almost two weeks I've had to navigate strategically between pox with a cloth covered semi damp finger while Jack squirms and whines "Be careful of my chicken pox!"
Yesterday we visited Auntie May's yard and had a bit of a play during dry spells. Let me introduce you to one of my new sponsors, the lovely independent clothing label, Filemon Kid. The nice people over from Filemon sent Jack a few jumpers. Yesterday he wore the Hoot Hoot Navy jumper. So cute! It's teamed with a Cos shirt from the childrens range, Zara kids puffa coat and jeans, and Ugg Harwell boots.
Thanks so much to the guys from Filemon Kid, and if you fancy picking up a few pieces for your little 'un, you can get 15% off with the code JACK15. Brills!
