Little O has been off preschool all this week (and will be for the next two weeks as well), so he decided to celebrate this by coming down with a cold and fever, which he subsequently gave to Baby E, who gave it to me, and now my mother-in-law, who has kindly come to stay to help out for a few days, has got it too. I think the saying is “it never rains, but it pours”, which is also pretty weather-appropriate too at the moment.
The beginning part of the week was quite slow: playing with Duplo at home, a trip to a local park (and an investigation of bicycles by Little O) and the making of baked blueberry cheesecake (with stevia and gluten-free biscuit base). Then it was a visit to an interiors store that is closing down (my suggestion vetoed by Husband) and discovering that Baby E can hold the bottle himself (he’s so much more dextrous than Little O was at this age but so much less physical – so interesting the differences between them). Saturday night, Husband and I had a rare few hours out on our own – sitting under the awning of a near deserted bar and drinking red wine as the rain poured down. Then today a scratch dinner of leftover bits and pieces from the fridge – yum!
