Last week was full of ups and downs. We have hardly seen our Papa, as he's been super busy, involved into politics lately, campaigning for his party Liberi e Uguali. But the less said about that, the better.
On Mondays Eddie has his guitar lessons at school. On Sunday he spent a good time, practising his tunes, including Hedwig's theme and Minecraft theme.
On Monday I was back to UE Roasters cafe for a dose of much needed caffeine, admiring the pretty cakes but only having a latte.
On Tuesday I was playing with review toys from Schleich, putting the dinosaurs round the garden for more attractive photos. This is the oviraptor.
Wednesday morning happened to be very stressful (see my post Autism: a little glimpse into our life), when the school transport didn't arrive, and Sash went into a total meltdown.
He later travelled from school to a residential place for an overnight stay, and Eddie and I spent the evening, watching Ballerina on amazon and stuffing ourselves with popcorn. We both loved the animation, it was a good story. And there's a dashing Russian ballet dancer called Rudolph too.
Lucky Eddie won a super prize from The Entertainer shop (win your height in Hasbro games) a month ago, and two big boxes of games finally arrived. We didn't know which games or how many would arrive.
Imagine how delighted he is. We decided we'd take three games for younger kids to his old nursery.
Eddie loves jelly (and so do I), and on Thursday I made a strawberry jelly with fresh raspberries and a splash of Robinsons squash.
Our local Waitrose had an internal redesign of all aisles, and is now a bit of a pain to navigate, as they moved everything around. Not sure what the point was. I used to know exactly where things were, and could find them with closed eyes.
They were also promising us a new sushi counter. Finally the counter was open on Friday, and I bought a seaweed salad for lunch. It was lovely.
Today I took Eddie to Waitrose to show the sushi counter. Since we went to a sushi-making masterclass in YO! (Oxford) last October, he has become a bit of a sushi addict. We looked at rows of sushi and picked a few to take home with us.
