What else has been happening this week:

As you know we had a heatwave here in the UK on Monday and Tuesday so we stayed in. I set up a paddling pool in the kitchen with toys in for my son to play with which was enjoyable. By Wednesday it was a bit cooler so we went for a walk early (for us!) before the sun had a chance to really heat up! It was still fairly warm, but it was nice to get out and about again! Thursday was the first day of the summer holidays and we had a smart metre fitted. My son and I went to my mum’s to keep out of the way! My son had a great time with a water gun that looked huge against him! Friday we went to Wingham Wildlife Park which is always a great time out. Saturday we went to the library and bought some more fish for the tank. Today we are getting the house ready to celebrate Christmas in July tomorrow with the family (just a few decorations up so that we don’t spoil actual Christmas, baking some Christmas cupcakes and generally tidying up). We will be having a BBQ so fingers crossed it doesn’t suddenly rain tomorrow!

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!

What else has been happening this week:

The week started off as it usually does with my son going to the Children’s Centre. Tuesday was the usual trip to the library then on Wednesday he had his second stay and play for an hour at school. During this hour his dad and I went to a presentation hosted by the Early Years Teacher and the Head Teacher, and collected his uniform (I also sampled some of the catering – a lovely piece of flapjack!). I still can’t believe that he is going to school this year!

After this it went downhill. My son started coughing and had a runny nose earlier on in the week and on Wednesday I also started. I have then been ill with temperatures etc for the rest of the week. We have therefore missed a trip to the zoo and a family BBQ. Fingers crossed that I will be better next week!

I hope that you have had a better week!

What else has been happening this week:

It has been quite a quiet week this week. We went to the Children’s Centre on Monday where my son met a couple of children who will be starting at the same school as him in September. This was a nice surprise as the Children’s Centre is in the village next to ours so I didn’t think that we would meet anyone that would be going to his school! On Tuesday we went to the library and then the rest of the week was a chill week ending in a trip to McDonalds, dinner at my mum’s and dropping off a friend’s birthday present.

Hope you have all had a great week. Here’s to next week!

My son’s McDonalds haul!

Mum’s garden – so many Roses! Yes there is a train track there…

We started off the week going to the Children’s Centre with my mum. We then went to the library on Tuesday and then didn’t do anything exciting until Friday when we went to The Romney Rythe and Dymchurch Railway. The weekend has been quiet as I haven’t been well again. Luckily it isn’t Covid so that’s something!

Hope you have all had a great week. Here’s to next week!

What else has been happening this week:

After the Funeral and Wedding last week my son was really tired come Monday and spent most of the day on the sofa. I was a bit worried about him, but come Tuesday he was back to his normal bouncy self! Tuesday we therefore went to the library to get him a new load of books (see Stacking the Shelves!). Wednesday we visited Batemans which was Rudyard Kipling’s House (which I always enjoy!), Thursday we celebrated early Father’s Day with my partner’s family as his parents are off on holiday, Friday we went to Wingham Wildlife Park and then this weekend we celebrated Father’s Day with my family (somewhat subdued as I’m not feeling too well).

I hope that you have all had a good week. Here’s to next week!

What else has been happening this week:

It has been half term this week so my partner has been home. We started off the week with a trip to the Children’s Centre then we have been to a couple of museums and into town for shoe shopping. My son now has his first pair of school shoes ready for September (he has grown out of his shoes so we shall just have to hope that they still fit!). My partner however still needs to get shoes for the new term! This week has also seen my first hair colouring. It has sadly come to that time where I need to colour my hair to hide all the white coming through. Still it does mean that I can experiment with colour!

Hope you have all had a good week. Here’s to next week!

A Most Private Bank by Andreas Clenow (click for link to Goodreads)

My Book Of The Week Was:

Book Review – Melmoth by Sarah Perry (click for my review)

Book Description From Goodreads:

“For centuries, the mysterious dark-robed figure has roamed the globe, searching for those whose complicity and cowardice have fed into the rapids of history’s darkest waters-and now, in Sarah Perry’s breathtaking follow-up to The Essex Serpent, it is heading in our direction.

It has been years since Helen Franklin left England. In Prague, working as a translator, she has found a home of sorts—or, at least, refuge. That changes when her friend Karel discovers a mysterious letter in the library, a strange confession and a curious warning that speaks of Melmoth the Witness, a dark legend found in obscure fairy tales and antique village lore. As such superstition has it, Melmoth travels through the ages, dooming those she persuades to join her to a damnation of timeless, itinerant solitude. To Helen it all seems the stuff of unenlightened fantasy.

But, unaware, as she wanders the cobblestone streets Helen is being watched. And then Karel disappears. . . .”

What else has been happening this week:

It started off with taking my son to the Children’s Centre near us and doing a bit of clothes shopping for him. We then weren’t feeling too bright by Wednesday, so had a chill week ending on Friday with a trip to the library to take back The Adventures of Paddington and There’s A Superhero In My Book. We came back with a couple of books which I will post about next Wednesday for Library Loot! This weekend we went to the park to meet some other parents with children starting school this September (however there was only us and one other parent that turned up!) and had a family meal in our local pub (something we haven’t done since before the Pandemic!).

Hope you have all had a good week. Here’s to next week!
