islandfairy Thanks Kirsten for suggesting Mr Selfridge! While not as gripping as Downton Abbey, it's good enough that I've spent many hours watching it while waiting for this little poppet to start recovering. @ktollipop 21h
  •   steffyab @islandfairy I agree with you, not as good as downton but still love it. season 3 jut started last sunday here. i'm gonna miss it... 21h
  •   k8emc Jeremy liven has gotten better as the series goes on! Totally love him. 20h
  •   islandfairy True @k8emc! I'm in the middle of series 2 and now he's BECOME Harry Selfridge! 20h
  •   islandfairy @steffyab I'm watching it on an android box... 20h
  •   ktollipop @islandfairy are you sure it wasn't someone else who made the recommendation? Though I'm so glad to hear Ivy is getting better! 17h
  •   islandfairy @ktollipop ha! I was sure it was you! Now I'm curious to know who mentioned it! 17h
  •   beadlor Love the series! 16h

islandfairy You know when you can't hear your baby breathing and you check whether they still are every 2 minutes? I miss those days. Also, let's all pray for these sunny days to last. 5d

islandfairy I'm reposting this photo by @nicholerobertson because I need some Paris in my feed. First world problems, I know, but after being cooped up with Ivy and various sick children for the past 2 months, I was dreaming about this sight day and night. More than anything, though, I'll miss the breakfast pastries from the boulangerie on the corner, seeing the children running in the parks (they only get to do that abroad) and my favourite onion soup. Next time... 6d
  •   the.holly.tree I'd be pretty devastated too! Disappointment is never a picnic. 6d
  •   littlehen Why don't they get to run in parks at home? Could you use sicky time to plan your next holiday? 6d
  •   islandfairy @littlehen because we have none! Yes, we're already planning a getaway. It's just that I can't imagine when we'll be all well again. 6d
  •   littlehen Seriously?! No parks?! That's crazy. I hope you're all well soon. Zinc and vitamin c xxx 6d
  •   islandfairy @littlehen I've been having vitamin c + zinc and also a multivitamin plus eating A LOT of vegetables and fruit and little sugar for weeks now. It won't let up. As for the kids, they keep passing it on to each other. And yes, no parks with trees, grass they can run on, etc. Just a public garden. 6d
  •   thejoyfulbeards @islandfairy I'm always so interested in learning about how others live. We live right across from a giant park that has two playgrounds, two dog parks, running trails, a baseball field and tons of space to just run with huge oak trees. We here would totally not appreciate this unless we knew that others lacked it. I remember seeing the free parks in Italy when I lived there and thinking how sad they were. Though of course I know there are trade offs and each place offers something that others don't I love our park system. Also I'm so sorry you had to skip your trip. I hope you guys all pull out of this sick fog soon. It took us two months also so here's hoping! 6d
  •   islandfairy @thejoyfulbeards you're lucky! We have the sea and the oldest temples in the world and lots of history but zero green spaces. 4d

islandfairy Trying hard to preserve my sanity. Sick children (still) mean we had to cancel a trip I've been looking forward to since September. This Sunday we were meant to go to Paris for a week after an absence of 2 years. I needed something...anything...to cheer me up and stop me from slipping into a state I'm dreading. So I'm having my 3 inch roots done. Where's the end of this tunnel? 1w
  •   thejoyfulbeards @islandfairy thanks lady. And glad you are taking care of yourself too. Sometimes I think us mom's forget to treat ourselves good also. 7d
  •   islandfairy @thejoyfulbeards I very nearly cancelled it but I'm glad I didn't. I needed a couple of hours without wearing a face mask. 7d
  •   annakelso Sick mother here and moving her to assisted living apartment. My roots will be tomorrow but they just called to ask "where are you?", my appt. is supposed to be tomorrow. I feel you pain. The word "weary" came to mind this morning after a terrible sleep. Hang in there. 7d
  •   islandfairy @annakelso I'm starting to think there's a connection between roots and illness! I hope your mum recovers soon and that you manage to get some rest too. X 7d
  •   beadlor I'm so sorry your trip had to be cancelled. Hope the young ones feel better soon. 7d
  •   the.holly.tree I'm so sorry. X 7d
  •   littlehen Aw just caught up on the cancellation. That's a real bummer. 6d
  •   lorinda Things always somehow feel better after someone else washes and styles your hair! I do hope you're feeling better despite having to cancel your trip... Paris is waiting for you and your babes when you're all better! xx 6d

islandfairy This girl never ceases to amaze me. Last week we unexpectedly had to take blood samples from her during Ivy's dr's visit. She didn't bat an eyelid and even watched the dr insert the needle in her arm. Today she's having her first proper haircut at the hairdresser while I have my hair washed (bar a couple of fringe trims, her hair was always cut at home). She's handling it like a pro as I watch her from across the room. I'm so proud of her. 2w
