This is our first time linking up with the Me & Mine Project. I have been meaning to for so long now. So I am so glad to finally be linking up. I am quite excited about it actually. We recently visited Wales and I have just blogged all about it. It was where these photos of us where taken.

Life certainly has given me a lot in in terms of the people I share my life with. My family are the one thing that I will treasure over anything else throughout my life. I am truly thankful for all the love I am surrounded by everyday. In terms of my little family right here and my parents, and in laws too. Not a day goes by that someone doesn’t contact me. More so the last couple of days since arriving home because I have been in so much pain.

I visited the dentist today and found out it is an infected wisdom tooth. This wisdom tooth has been trying to get through for years and its just not quite working out. It is so sore. You know when you have an infection how run down your body feels? I am on a course of antibiotics for a week and even the painkillers don’t take away the pain, and I am struggling to eat.  I am hardly able to open my jaw. I am feeling a little sorry for myself. Nothing serious though I have been blogging and vlogging through it. Just can’t wait to see the back of this pain. I am hoping tomorrow morning will be good to me and I will wake with no pain. Lets hope.

As you can probably tell the last few days I have been in need of some extra TLC from the ones closest to me. I have to say my dad has been brilliant. He doesn’t live close to us and works a few hours away but he has text me and face-timed me everyday over the last three days to see how I have been doing with my poorly tooth. I don’t think he knows truly how much that means to me.

Not forgetting my wonderful husband who is always looking out for me. Not a day goes by that I don’t hear from him. I always receive texts and calls from him to see how I am doing and what me and the children are getting up to. Especially more than usual today as I had a dentist appointment.

I didn’t want this post to be all about me but I needed to elaborate on the reasons I have felt so loved this week. Just the small things the ones that go unnoticed are the ones that make all the difference. I feel lucky to have the family that I do.

Even the children have been so supportive. Sophia brought me a glass of water this afternoon. She reassured me that if I ate some fruit then I would feel better as that is what she does when she has a sore throat. Which of course lead me on to tell her that if she has a sore throat again to please tell me so I can give her some soothing medicines rather then just eating fruit and dealing with the sore throat alone. Bless her. This conversation we had melted my heart I gave her a great big cuddle and a kiss.

So here you have it the four of us for our first ever participation in the Me and Mine Project. And it couldn’t hold more memories for us. It sums up our beautiful week away in Wales when we met the beautiful place that is Earwood. It brings my heart close to exploding with happiness. I remember watching Archie march along in front of me looking for snakes. Hearing the water next to us as we walked, the sounds of water always so soothing to me, the sounds of twigs crunching beneath my feet. Seeing my husband hold his children’s hands, all this and more I will remember in these photos.

As for this wisdom tooth trouble, I will be on the mend soon especially with this lovely family around me. I am feeling very lucky.

    Stunning photos!! Hope the tooth gets better. I had all my wisdom teeth out. It wasn’t as bad as I thought. I’d suffered for years with them. #meandmine x

    Oh you poor thing!! A tooth infection is one of the worst kind of pain. I hope it’s all cleared up by now. Having a good support system and a loving family is so important and something I never take for granted either. Sounds like you have a great one!! Hope you had a fab time in my homeland. Love the family shots, what a perfect setting xxx
