Happy Monday! Hope you’ve had a lovely relaxing weekend with your family. I REALLY hope that this week is going to be a little better than the one that just ended! I had to attend A&E this week, because of pain in my ankle, only to be told there is nothing obviously wrong with the bone and I need to see my GP. Thankfully I’ve got an appointment again on Wednesday so I’m praying for a referral for an MRI. Daisy has had lots of days at home with me this week, as I can’t really get down the 48 stairs from our flat to the ground floor! This weeks Living Arrows post, Living Arrows 36/53, is now live.

Living Arrows 36/53 - Daisy with her Yumbox

As I’ve got such a bad ankle (possible tendonitis) Daisy has had to have lots of days at home. I’ve been trying hard to keep her entertained and one of the days I made her this treat box up, in her *Yumbox, to allow her to have a treat. I’ve packed her two squares of chocolate, some plain popcorn, a tangerine, a few sweets, an apple and peanut butter on gluten-free crackers. She was so excited and it lasted her for the whole afternoon.

I’ve been trying to make the most of the time at home with Daisy. I’ve napped when Daisy has napped, we’ve baked, spent time learning about new shapes, letters and animals too. Also, I bought this *huge tub of craft goodies from Amazon, for under £10, and that has been really useful this week. Daisy has been surprisingly good about being stuck at home a good 4-5 days a week, for the last fortnight.

I’m struggling a little, as I feel like a bit of a failure, but I know this will pass soon. I can’t help that I have arthritis, or that I’m having a flare up at the moment. Daisy is too young to understand this of course, and I don’t want her to suffer, but my in-laws and my Mum have helped out a little. This means Daisy has had trips to the park and has still been able to go to Nursery on the days that Thomas is working.

If you enjoyed this Living Arrows 36/53 post you may enjoy looking back at our first full year of Living Arrows. Also, you can look back on this same week last year, Living Arrows 36/52, – if you fancy a look at how much Daisy has changed!

    Daisy certainly has changed a bit since last year. She is just the cutest, and I love seeing how much she likes that “Yumbox.”

    Oh no! I hope you have had treatment for your ankle. I know it’s easy to say and difficult to do but don’t beat yourself up, as you say it’s not your fault. Looks like she loved her lunchbox xx

    It’s so hard to keep kids entertained inside – it’s something I’m dreading about the winter but she looks so happy with that YumBox and the Amazon crafts look awesome! x
