We had a bit of a scare yesterday,poor little S has been ill with a temperature for the past few days, and in the morning when we woke up he was shivering and his lips and nails were blue. Cue a trip down to A&E for 3 hours, most of which were spent trying to, as the nurses put it, ‘catch a wee’.He got better though, alhamdulillah and is now his usual pink self.
It’s been about two months since we moved in, and yet we are still without blinds, the pictures are still not up and there is a bare expanse of floor instead of a rug in the lounge. The coats get dumped on a cardboard box full of files instead of being hung up neatly. I am blaming work for this stuff not getting done, but it’s high time we got it all sorted – by the end of September I hope to have some pictures of the finished article.
I got this print for S’s room – it’s so cute (possibly a bit girly, but he won’t know any different):
The other thing I have been busy doing, is setting up my book club/discussion group. So far we have a really nice, but small group of girls together, which was the aim. There always seem to be lots of events catering for big numbers, but fewer small, regular things – I suppose because a lot of people can’t commit to regular events in busy old London. We plan to read The Cellist of Sarajevo first, which I’m looking forward to.
I’ll be popping down to the Spitalfields Show and Green Fair this afternoon, subject to S’s good health. They have prizes for cakes and jams, so next year I may come over all Women’s Institute and have a go. This year I’ll just scout out the competition.
