Last Sunday we all went out together, helping Sasha and his Dad in the café. While we were in a long queue to be served, Eddie has spotted Diet Coke bottles with the urban lingo messages, like Totes Emosh to appeal to the YouTube generation. He found it funny. And before anyone says anything, Eddie doesn't drink Cola or Pepsi (his choice), it was a drink for Sash.
It was a misty blue morning on Monday. This photo of St Mary's church is taken without any filters, it was just blue like that.
Eddie had to go back to the dentist to have the work on his tooth finished. It cost an arm and a leg - over £800. I'm still reeling from this crazy amount. In comparison, it's more than Sash's PIP and my carer's allowance taken together per month.
Walking in the garden on a frosty Tuesday morning, all fallen leaves on the ground and plants were covered in frost.
Spotted this little book in the local vintage shop, with a bit of info on king Edgar. Unfortunately, it was in a pack of five books for £25, and this month I'm officially broke.
This tree with the evergreen creeper at the neighbours' garden always reminds me of an elephant on its legs, roaring into the sky, a sort of crazy Dumbo. In summer "the elephant" disappears under the foliage.
Catkins are known in Russia as "earrings". That's the hazel tree in our garden.
We went to meet the solicitor to try to figure out what we need to do to get a power of attorney for Sash. It sounds rather convoluted, and there's a lot of hoops to jump through. I'm so not looking forward to all the palaver. But it has to be done this year.
If you remember the photo I posted earlier this month of a jar, where I am growing a hyacinth bulb, here is the progress. The flower bud has "sprouted", it's such an intense bright pink colour.
