Just a quick post as the rest of my week will be spent babysitting.

Poor little Riley was only well for about a week and now he’s sick again.
Poor little man.
Yet again nothing much will be done around my home this week just some cuddling for Riley from Grandma. My housework will still be there later and all that matters is to get Riley well again. So tough on Amy having to go to work and leave her sick little man with me.


Saturday saw Max and I watching our son Daniel playing football.
Their team is undefeated this season.
Here is a photo of Max and Daniel taken by one of the guys at footy using Max’s phone

Daniel is 27


Sunday Max went running with our youngest son Michael 25.
This year in October Michael will run in the Melbourne Marathon with Max.
It will be Michael’s first Marathon and Max’s 28th.

2nd AUGUST will be my One year Bloggaversary.

Come back on 2nd August and I will be celebrating with a Giveaway.

You've got some very handsome men in your life, sweets! Boy, little Riley is having a tough time with it. Sure hope he gets better quickly.

Hubs used to run marathons also but at his age I think they're a thing of the past, although he does the treadmill for half hour every day but sunday.

Smoochies and most of those to Riley,

Oh, poor Riley! I hope he gets better soon!! He has had such a rough spell lately. Hugs to him.

What handsome and athletic men you have in your life! My older boys are addicted to their Play Stations. My younger kids are the sports nuts.

I hope you have a great week even though poor Riley is sick!

I am so sorry that your little Riley is sick again. I remember when my girls were little, as soon as they played in the park, went to the doctor's office they would catch something. Meanwhile, what a gorgeous young man your son is, you must be so proud of him.


Natasha Burns said...

oh no! that poor kid can't win can he?! Poor Riley, hope he gets better soon - maybe when he is older he'll never get sick, hopefully that can be the trade-off for being so sick so often now!

~Becca~Bluebird Rose said...

Poor little fella is sick again? Yes, it sounds like lots of cuddling is in order!

Gail McCormack said...

Poor little Riley, they tend to pick all sorts of things up in their first few months of creche, good his got a loving Grandma to look after him, yes your housework will wait. I think Ellie's been going to the footy too. So Max is back into it!
Hope all goes well

Poor Riley! I hope he gets better soon and STAYS better. I'll bet Amy is thrilled that Grandma can watch him and that it takes a lot of her worry away.
