I apologise for the radio silence that's been dominating the blog lately. I've frequently meant to write and haven't been able to summon the energy to do a proper post when I actually had the free time. What hasn't helped is all three of us managing to come down full of cold this week, resulting in one night where no one went to bed until 9, everyone slept in Mama & Daddy's bed, and the adults slid into unconsciousness long before E passed out at the end of watching another Thomas the Tank Engine movie. It's also been a week of defiance in potty training, which - when compounded with having a slightly ill child - is enough to sap whatever extra energy you have left into the vortex of additional loads of laundry and mandatory bathroom-disinfecting sessions.
So have we been up to anything that doesn't sound miserable, disgusting, or highly contagious? In fact, we have. Let's talk about that for a while, shall we?

The other thing I've been up to? Trying to chip away at the mental block I seem to have about planning E's second birthday party. Do I want a theme? What theme would he like the most? Should I even bother? How do I decorate if there's no theme? Will the fabric I ordered to make his duvet cover arrive on time? (There will be pictures of that once I have a sample to photograph!) Also, I ought to put up the rest of the pictures and video from the Family Fun Day that the Husband's work recently hosted. I owe you all a ton of posts, and I promise, though it may take me ages, I'll get round to them. After all, we're approaching the season of the year when EVERYTHING happens in my family...it's only going to get more interesting from here on out!
