Week 3 and it’s been a big one. It’s been a birthday week for N. Along with about 20 million other people we know it seems, as there’s been parties galore, presents flying around and chocolates being handed out at school.
On Sunday we didn’t do much. The weather wasn’t great and N didn’t want to do much, so I vegetated keeping warm under my cosy blanket.
Monday was school, and once back home, N wanted a hot chocolate with squirty cream. He’s loving those at the moment. Me less so, now I’m back on my diet. I got this cheesy, gappy grin. Although the gap is filling up fast with all 3 teeth showing, and one already halfway out.
On Tuesday it was just a working day. But I’ve been enjoying the sunrises over the fields and hedges.
On Wednesday I nipped into town to get a couple of bits and pieces. The Works rewarded me with these books. Perfect for enabling me to answer some of the questions N has been asking me that I can’t remember (or never knew). Geography I can remember a lot of having done it for my degree, but history I have no idea other than the world wars. He was asking about the pub at Edge Hill being a castle before, so we talked about the English Civil War and the battle there, but other than that my memory is hazy.
On Thursday someone was in my bed when I got back from dancing. I wasn’t impressed. But it seems a couple of days later he’s coming down with a cold (and now given it to me) which would explain why he’s not staying in his own bed.
On Friday, it was tennis club again. N was happier in the rejigged class this week, and he hit most shots this week. Although his serving throwing practice was a little dubious. This week was under arm serves, it’ll be interesting next week watching over arm attempts!
Saturday was N’s birthday. It was a quiet day because his ‘party’ is next week and he didn’t really want to do anything, plus he had another party to go to. I managed to slice my thumb (worse than the one I did last week – sigh) with my new favourite knife. Note to self, be a lot more careful when chopping peppers.
