Looking at the photos taken in the last week, it's mainly of our garden and food. This thyme grows just by the path in the garden, and smells lovely.
Yellow poppies are scattered around the garden, looking cheerful and jolly.
It was a rainy day, we ran to school as fast as we could.
Wednesday was a mix of rainy and sunny weather. This busy bee was diligently moving from flower to flower, collecting pollen.
A few months ago our lovely neighbours across the road moved to their new house. They downsized and didn't have enough room for all their plants, thus I have become an owner of several orchids. None of them were in bloom at that time, and I didn't know which colour they were supposed to be. One of them later produced pink blooms, and a few days ago I was delighted to see this pale beauty. It looks like a watercolour painting, so pretty.
On Thursday I tried to tackle some garden jobs. Now the big green wheelie bin is completely full.
On Friday Eddie arrived home with bright red cheeks. When I checked his body, he's also got a rash. I know that the scarlet fever has been doing rounds in his school. On Saturday he wasn't paler or better feeling, so I called 111 to ask advice, as I wasn't sure if it was indeed the scarlet fever or slapped cheek. I was advised to take him to be seen by the doctor at Minor injuries unit. The doctor said it was a viral infection, and to do nothing unless he's got high temperature or was feeling worse.
As of today (Sunday) he's still very red in the face, so I think tomorrow we might go to the GP.
Here he is, looking sorry for himself, watching Ben and Holly on Netflix.
