Photo diary: week 43, 365

Last Sunday, as we were going grocery shopping with Eddie, we stopped for a few minutes at the book shop, where he spotted Star Wars Advent calendar. I couldn't resist his pleading looks. Now he asks every morning if it's time to open the first door of the advent.
He was cheerful and jolly during the day, only to start crying before bedtime. His ear was hurting so much, and as the doctor confirmed the next day, he got a middle ear infection.


I received a pack of Snazaroo face paints for testing as a Mumsnetter. Eddie looked through the booklet enclosed with the paints but asked me to paint a Ninja turtle mask on his face. No surprises then.


He was still very poorly on Wednesday, and spent a lot of time in bed, snuggled in a big duvet. He asked me to give him a cup of hot milk with honey.


Lego takes over our house, there are Lego pieces and minifigures everywhere, including the kitchen.


Lovely people from Bluebird often send me their latest tea releases, knowing how much I enjoy their tea. I was thrilled to receive an early Christmas gift from Santa, but then I am a good girl. Snowball tea with coconut flavour and marshmallow pieces is a delightful festive brew.



After several days of being cooped at home, we finally got out. We found this Halloween photo stand by Waitrose, and of course, we just had to have our photos taken (Eddie did one of me as well, as a skeleton, but he certainly looks much cuter).

  1. Oh not at the sore ears, nothing worse, even as an adult it makes me want to cry.
    That tea sounds lovely.
    Aaaahhhh at the sad face with the cup of hot milk.
