Our week in photos 19/01/20-25/01/20

Welcome to Our Week in Photos. Our way of sharing our week and what we get up to with our family abroad and grandparents who like to keep up with our life and antics.

This week has been a mixed bag. I have been pretty unwell with a migraine that knocked me well and truly for most of the week, and has meant a lot of things got dropped so I could recover. But we survived and managed and homeschool, school, work, time with friends and family, date nights, shopping trips and life carry on. I am grateful the kids and husband know the drill when I get a migraine and they manage well with me incapacitated (ie hiding in a dark room on a lot of medication to try and make me feel better) Thankfully it went, and I am feeling back to normal ish now.

Layla and I both jumped on the Dolly Parton challenge this week. I think she did it much better than I did, don’t you? Have you done one? Silly but fun?

This is my favorite photo this week. The husband, unlike my children, doesn’t have to be bribed for silly photos and will happily pose for the camera. We weren’t sure if this was a unicorn, a platypus or a platycorn. The other customers in the shop found us amusing too. My teenager was with us and was hiding. Apparently parents are SO embarrassing. Poor child, she has NO idea…

  1. Oh no! Sorry you have been unwell. Mirgraines are the worst. The Dolly Parton Challenge is a lot of fun. I think I’m going to have to join in. hehehe
    It looks like your husband was having great fun! x

  2. Oh migraines are horrible. Glad you got over it. Unfortunately my husband won’t do photos at all, and won’t even take them of anyone else. Frustrating when it comes to holiday or lack of family photos. Love the Dolly Parton challenge photos

  3. one of the joys of being the parent of a teenager is embarrassing them and getting your own back for when they did it to you.
    Have spotted people doing a Dolly Parton challenge but had to look up what it was about.
    Shame about the migraines spoiling your week.

  4. Sorry to hear about the migraine, glad that you are feeling better. I have seen quite a few of those Dolly Parton challenges, I like the ones of your cat. Your husband looks like he is having fun!

  5. I hope your migraine has cleared up. I was suffering with them since I was a small child, but a simple change in diet, cutting out all wheat, has seen me free of them (apart from one over christmas) since September

  6. Sorry to hear about the migraine. It’s good that your family can look after themselves while you are struggling. That’s a great photo! My husband will only have ‘nice’ photos taken, but we are still embarrassing parents because we laugh at poos, wees and farts! Strangely the kids don’t find this stuff funny. What is wrong with them?!

  7. lol those are brilliant. I love them. The photos of your cat are my favourite. I really hope your migraines have cleared up. I can recommend migraine glasses if the light is bothering you. Big hugs xx

  8. Sorry to hear you had a bad migraine. I have seen these photo challenges on twitter, some are so funny. I don’t have enough photos of myself to make a collage. πŸ™‚ Lol @ your husband’s face, he’s a great sport, but I can see why your teen would be embarrassed. My younger son already tells me off if he thinks I’m embarrassing him, and he’s only 9.
