The last week was not the best weather-wise, it was raining almost every day.
Last Sunday Eddie and I were busy, tidying his bedside book shelf. There is not enough space for all of his books, for example, his Goosebumps collection is put somewhere else.
But this shelf contains a lot of our favourites, some of them we've read aloud together, some of them Eddie enjoyed on his own.
We've recently finished reading Wizards of once (book II) and can't wait for the latest instalment. I have already pre-booked it online.
Monday afternoon was sunny, and my guys were playing football in the garden. Eddie likes to climb on the apple tree, though I keep telling him that the tree is old, and he has to be careful.
After several years this potted lime plant has finally produced one flower. I only noticed it, when I entered the greenhouse to water the tomatoes, and could smell a different delicate scent.
The lime was a freebie from one of the gardening magazines, where you only have to pay postage.
It was a World Calligraphy Day, and I wanted to mark it, so I wrote one of my favourite words - tea - with tiny teacups inserted in the fonts.
And these are some of my china cups and sauces, which I buy in vintage and charity shops.
On Thursday we went to Oxford, and visited the Waterstones, where we admired the poster with Cressida Cowell's quote, and we totally agree with her - Reading is magic.
Unfortunately, the trip home with Sash was extremely stressful, he got very upset because his brother stayed behind in Oxford with his father. I thought we'd be thrown out of the bus, and then what would we do, stranded in the middle of nowhere. It was a nightmare. I still shudder at the memory.
In the last week Eddie and I have been playing Wizards Unite on my iPhone. It's a fun game, and keeps us entertained in the rainy weather.
Books, ipad, apps, walks into town and drawing, that's our activities of the week. Here is another of Eddie's recent drawings. We love Marvel characters.
