Living arrows 2017 – 7/52

This little boy ended last week with a lovely spot of impetigo on his face.

A trip to the doctor resulted in cream and antibiotics which are doing a great job of clearing it up.  But it meant that we really didn’t get up to much at all this past week.

This photo, as a result, is a little bit of a cheat.  

It’s from last weekend when we did make it out as a family to the beach.


You can see the little sore spot just starting to come out on his face in this photo.

I love the picture though.

Is there anything better when you’re little than a ride on someone’s shoulders?!

Rhys tends to be so full of energy, I think we all knew something was up when he was a bit quieter than usual last weekend.

We’re all still just a bit run down here, I really think we could do with a change in the weather.  Or something, anything, to just blast this meh-ness away.

Anyone have any tips to get us all feeling well again?

      It’s looking much better, thank you, antibiotics working their magic! x

    Oh poor thing, impetigo is horrible. I used to get it/cold sores a lot as a child. Warmer weather/sun helps get rid – not much of that around at the moment! #livingarrows

    Oh no that doesn’t sound like much fun Monkey suffers with bad skin and often picked this up at nursery. Lovely picture on the beach though. Hope you are all feeling better soon x #livingarrows
