Grey Skies

Yesterday was not so great, I had lots of grand plans to go out and explore a bit more of the world with the little man (as the teen princess was out with friends) but shit things happened.  Not those dramatic oh my God kind of things, just the average every other day kind of things, like being woken up in the middle of the night because little man decides that he's going to be an absolute joy and not sleep after 2am.  Or the fact that I still have a sore throat and feel generally under the weather, or looking outside and seeing nothing but grey skies.

We did attempt to play in the garden but after 10 seconds the little man and I gave each other very telling looks and decided it was much too cold to enjoy the garden.  I can't even say that I compensated for not having taken him out, I didn't.  I made him suffer through a day of pigging out on the sofa wrapped in a blanket watching recordings of Raa Raa the noisy lion and The Real Housewives of Atlanta.  We didn't read books, we didn't sing songs, we didn't paint or play and he was so tired he didn't ask to do those things as he usually does, he didn't even attempt to empty the kitchen cupboards or pull out all the printing paper.  

Hopefully soon we will be back to our normal selves and can enjoy the world again.
