{The Ordinary Moments 14} #40

So, not much has really happened in the last week or so as unfortunatly we’ve all been hit with the ‘dreaded lurgy’.

But, hey – what’s not ordinary about that???  Especially in our household!!

I know I’ve mentioned it before but as things go we are so very fortunate to have such amazing help and support from our beloved family.

Which, when you’re feeling like death warmed up and want nothing more than to snuggle in a duvet with a Lemsip, a tonne of Kleenex and a very cheesy movie is really very gratefully received and hugely appreciated!!

So, whilst I was feeling sniffy and generally blue, my parents very kindly took the girls off my hands for some time in order for me to rest up and get better.

And, when I returned in the evening to collect them I just had to take this very blurry snap of Little E sat with her Grandma and playing on the iPad.

It might not be the clearest of photos but it’s full of family fondness and love.

Exactly the kind of memories I want to look back on years to come.

Again – apologies for the blurry picture.

      Oh Merlinda – I’m so sorry this is something you’re missing. When it does happen though it just make it all the more special. We all take each other for granted a bit here as we see so much of each other. I hope you get to take your photo soon. xxxxx

    Aw what a beautiful photo, you have captured such a lovely moment. I am very lucky that the girls have lots of grandparents who adore them, but we have an extra special relationship with my Mum. We are so very lucky to have her. Hope you feel better now. xx

      Awww thank you lovely. I am feeling ok – it just seems to be one thing after the next with small children. Bugs galore!!! It is fab to have all the grandparents so close – we are very lucky indeed. Thanks so much for your comment xxx

    Aww, there is such a special relationship between grandparents and grandchildren isn’t there? I love watching mine with theirs too. Hope you feel a little better now! Xx

      Aww thank you – I am luckily feeling a bit brighter – the girls just seem to bring everything home with them from nursery, and unfortunately it appears to affect me the most! Yes – we are very lucky indeed to have such great grandparents around us. I honestly don’t know what we’d do without them sometimes!!! Thank you so much for commenting xxxx
