Trying Not To Sneeze Too Much

Not really feeling well this whole week. I have been living in my Allergy meds the whole week hence I am so invisible in the linkys that I usually join. I want to join but I am shy on now commenting.

The whole week is just school run for me and then nursing myself. Allergy meds, the one that I am using makes me sleepy and after I am taking it I would literally go to a half asleep, half awake state.

Not good in commenting or doing anything.

But our school run has been good, we were sent these cool i-spy book by Harper Collins and its a nice way for my son to do something while I sneeze! Its about finding the things in the book and if you see it you get points. 1000pts will get you a certificate and a badge and that is what feeds my son's craving to really use the book.

Another amazing way to go out and explore and have an adventure finding treasures!

I have been concentrating on not sneezing too much outside so the blog is a bit on a rest as well but if you miss us you might want to visit some of our outdoors activity:

Like finding narrow paths that leads to amazing views!
Or When I became really mushy on a solo walking trip Uphill
Or The time when my son is really confident in climbing the rockpool rocks even on awindy day
As to when he is just starting to gain confidence,
And maybe some Royal Marines to perk up your week?
Or Maybe its Mr Bloom who really rock your boat!

Great fun! That makes school run more fun, although sorry about your allergies. Hope it calms down.

It does sound rotten. Even worse as I always imagine you as an outdoor person. Loved the I-spy books as a child. Wonderful for observation skills. #CountryKids

Oh I'm so sorry Merlinda, it sounds like the Hayfever has really taken hold this month. That much be horrid when you take something to help and it just makes you sleepy. You sun is always such a ray of light and looking for new things to try. These books sound perfect to give him a new challenge our by your beautiful beach front.
Thank you for managing to share with me on #CountryKids

My daughter gets bad hayfever too and it seems to have been much worse this week (even though she's taking tablets). Hope things settle down for you soon. I have very fond memories of the I-Spy books from when I was a kid so I'm sure they'll be greatly enjoyed! #countrykids Christine @afamilyday

Looks like a great way to encourage kids to be more aware of their surroundings! The incentive system would definitely encourage my boys too :) #CountryKids

Hope you feel better soon x

Hi Merlinda, I thought I was missing you because I'm behind on my blogging! I wish that were so, as that would be better than you suffering with allergies! My husband and son both suffer terribly too and have to take meds especially during the springtime.

Those i-Spy books have been around for years. And Sebastian looks like he's really into them (I hope he gets his certificate and badge). I do love the photo of him posing proudly in his uniform. Lovely!

Hope you feel better soon.

Oh no
Oh no hayfever, that is a bummer, battle through. Such a great way to explore using the Ispy books, I bet your son will have fun! #countrykids

Love the I-Spy books, we also love going out and exploring!
Hope you are feeling a bit better now :)

I'm only just catching up with my commenting this week too! x #PoCoLo

I read somewhere once that if you can eat local honey it's a way of building up immunity to the local pollen. Not sure if it works though, but hope you stop sneezing soon. It can be really frustrating and annoying can't it. Take care of yourself and thanks for linking to #PoCoLo x

Hope you feel better soon Merlinda. Love the books for helping turn a day out into an adventure looking for things and that photo of Sebastian standing on the wall is gorgeous. #CountryKids
