What else has been happening this week:

It has been a hot week this week and I have spent most of it recovering from my second cold and I am still a bit blocked up! We started off the week at the Children’s Centre. It is such a hot room, but at least this week we had a fan on. It gets difficult to keep finding clothes that are thin enough to keep cool in that room! We then didn’t do anything until Thursday when we went to the library in Cranbrook (the village next to ours) and had a nice lunch in one of the cafes. On Friday we went to Batemans (Rudyard Kipling’s House) again, but with my parents this time! It is a beautiful place and one that we can all enjoy. Saturday we went to a Shopping Centre to try and get some school clothes for our son, but it was a very dissapointing shop ending in buying socks (that weren’t even school regulation, we just need more socks!) and pants. We haven’t made plans yet for today, but it is going to be hot!

I hope that you have all had a good week!

    You participate in so many blog parties! I don’t see how you keep up with commenting on all the other participants. At least I thought when you added your blog to those lists you were supposed to do some commenting on the others.

    Your heat wave has been in the news here in the US quite a bit! Evidently it’s way beyond what they expected to happen for many years.

      I love it! I get to connect to so many other people and their blogs. Yep, I go round as many blogs as I can and comment on them, then in the evening I go through all the comments that have come in on mine.

      My secret is to do blog posts in the morning, link up when I can then comment on other blogs over lunch.

      Honestly, it needs to be on the news everywhere!!!! Roads near us have melted already. We just aren’t used to this sort of heat. My partner goes on every year about getting air con, but I put him off because we only have a couple of hot days a year, and sometimes not even then!

      Have a great week!

    I’m so sorry it’s been so hot over there. I have family over there and they have been telling me how hot it is. And I hope you feel better soon.

    I thought Paris for One was a lovely read. Glad you agree.

    I’m not sure we could survive here without air conditioning. My parents first got it when my mom was pregnant with my sister in 1959. An uncle loaned them a unit, and after my mom had Cathy, they gave the unit back, but then they went out and bought one for themselves!

    Beautiful photos! I’d love to visit there.

      We get so few hot days that it just isn’t worth it. We would then have to store it somewhere. My partner’s aunt apparently has a unit. She lives next door to us…

      Thank you. It is such a lovely place.

    Gorgeous pics! Looks like some great cozy mysteries. I love a good Christmas cozy. I may have to put that one on my list for December. I hope you find what you’re looking for for clothes! Sometimes it is so hard to find what’s needed for the kiddos.
