This Week: February #4

I seem to be neglecting this little corner of the internet of late. Popping in for the weekly posts, but nothing more. There are lots of half-started drafts that are currently lurking, unread. I must let some of them see the light of day soon.

This week has been full of lovely distractions. A visit from Manma and Daada (aka Grandma and Grandad, if you don't speak toddler) was a very exciting time for a certain little one. Sunday lunch at the local pub, a wander around the cathedral, finally getting some shelves up, seeing a beautifully bright double rainbow, and a trip to Hanbury Hall were just some of the things that have kept us busy and away from the laptop.

Running in the cathedral / waiting /  double rainbow (look closely, you can see where it ends... / a shelfie (now need to fill those frames with photos).

Today is less exciting - there's scaffolding going up around our house for some much needed roof repairs (the damp patches on the bedroom walls are growing every time it rains; such are the joys of old houses) so I'm flinching slightly with every crash and bang. We've had a happy morning pottering around the house though - tidying up and catching up on those little jobs I always mean to do. We've also been packaging up a parcel full os distractions for a friend whose husband is undergoing spinal surgery next week. Things like that really make you count your blessings. We've also discovered the magical things that are water beads. A washing up bowl full of the tiny, bouncy balls is the perfect thing to keep a slightly whingy toddler occupied for ages it seems.

Water beads - running my hands through them is quite addictive / playing in the watery light marks on the wall - one of my favourite photos of her, ever

Tomorrow looks to be dry and sunny so we're heading out on a road trip to Cheltenham for a mooch round the shops and a burger here. Hoping for a rummage in the charity shops too... Hope you all have a happy weekend.
