Me & Mine - February 2017

Wednesday, 1 March 2017

Joining up with the Me and Mine Family Portrait Project with this photo of our little family for February.


Very cheesey smiles from Mr MoaB and me. Baby R has no idea what's going on but at least we got a natural smile from Little Miss A for a change!

Now we've been here 3 months, I'm starting to feel like Cheshire is home. I don't have to put my sat nav on so much to get anywhere which I think is a sign. We've got into more of a routine now that both kids are at nursery and I'm starting to meet a few Mums at various playgroups etc. It is hard not knowing up here at all but I know it just takes time. Mr MoaB is really enjoying his job and it's so nice that he's just a 15 minute drive away so he's getting so much more time with the kids in the mornings and especially in the evenings.


February Highs:
  • - Baby R started nursery and has settled in really well just like his sister. Little Miss A has been keeping an eye on him.
  • - On a couple of occasions this month I've taken Little Miss A to a Scoot Fit Disco. She loves being able to whizz about on her scooter and I love it as it's indoors so perfect for this time of year. 
  • - It's been a long time coming but Little Miss A finally got to be like Daddy and go up in the trees on the Go Ape Junior Course as she's now tall enough. A few wobbles on the first go round but she gained in confidence massively by the second go and unsurprisingly loved the zip wire! 
  • - We met up with my niece at Cannock Chase for a lovely walk. It was great to catch up with her and nice for the kids to spend time with her.
  • - We now live only 20 minutes away from Chester and everyone says how nice it is so it's been high up our list of places to visit. We managed to visit this month on a gloriously bright, sunny day. Can't wait to go back and explore more.
  • - Mr MoaB took Little Miss A swimming for the first time in months. She definitely hasn't lost any of her confidence in the water.
  • - Mr MoaB and I spent a rare childfree day with a trip to Cheshire Oaks. Somehow Mr MoaB ended up buying quite a few things and I ended up with zilch. Next time it's my turn! We even treated ourselves to lunch at Wagamamas. It was like a date day and really nice. 

February Lows:
  • - I ended up in hospitalwith neutropenic sepsis. I felt absolutely fine but had a raised temperature so they kept me in and gave me antibiotics. Thankfully they released me after 2 nights with antibiotics to take at home. The hardest part was being away from the kids.
  • - I've had another round of chemo - Number 4. It was a frustrating day at the Cancer Centre as we had to wait over 4 hours just to see the consultant. I just wanted to get on with the chemo, but it's just one of those things. The chemo always wipes me out for a few days and I'm trying to make the most of the two days that the kids are at nursery to rest.
  • - We all had colds at some point this month. Baby R definitely had it worst though with conjunctivitis thrown in for good measure so we had take him to the doctors for eye drops. Thankfully it didn't affect him too much at night and he was still sleeping well. 
  • - We had to say goodbye to our dog - Sassy. We were struggling to look after her with my cancer treatment etc. so she has gone to live with my niece. It was hard to say goodbye to her and it's strange in the house without her.

  1. Aw a really lovely picture of you all. Sorry to hear you had to go into hospital that must have been hard and I'm sorry to hear about your dog and the chemo - especially how long you had to wait. I hope the treatment is going well though? Little Miss A sounds so confident with things, that must be so lovely for you to see. It's always nice when you get great weather on a family day out. I can't wait for the summer and for it to be warmer more often! :D xx

    1. Thanks so much Jess. It's actually been a relatively calm month compared to most over the last 12 months but I do hope March is calm too!

  3. What a lovely photo. It's always nice to explore somewhere you've newly moved to. We still haven't explored everywhere by us and we moved to ours ten years ago! Neutropenia is such a difficult thing but wishing you the very, very best with your chemotherapy. Cancer is a git.

  5. Wow, tough month!

    Despite having family in Chester, I've only visited the town part a couple of times ever. It was beautiful though.

    It must be so tough to not only have to deal with the chemo, but be so wiped out when you have to look after the kids. I struggle with my one sometimes and I'm certainly not going through anything as remotely scary or gruelling as chemo!

    Hope you have a lovely march

    1. Thanks so much Emmy. Chester is lovely and I'm really looking forward to exploring more it over the next few months. I'm amazed by how well the kids are coping with everything and they're generally behaving for me!

Sorry to hear about your hospital stay always tough when you want to just be with your kids. Sending hugs and best wishes #meandmineproject

    1. Thanks Jenny. I hope your Dad is doing ok. Chemo is tough and affects everyone differently. I can't wait until it's over but then whatever is next is scary too. Thanks for co-hosting #meandmine

  7. Sounds like it has been quite a mixed month. Sorry to hear that you had to say goodbye to Sassy and that you were in hospital with neutropenic sepsis. I hope you managed to rest and recover from your most recent chemo and that your treatment is going well. Glad to hear that Cheshire is now starting to feel like home and that Baby R is settling in well at nursery. #meandmineproject

    1. Thanks Louise. It was a mixed bag of a month but luckily the kids don't seem to be affected too much by my hospital visit etc.
