Rye woke up yesterday morning crying his nose needed wiping and as time has progressed, poor lad has developed another cold. I have some echinea tincture this time so I'm dosing him with that; juicing him lots of oranges and giving him wholewheat pancakes with golddust honey on it, (manuaka honey). I too have the scratchy feeling at the back of the roof of my mouth, tingly nose that is starting to culminate into sneezing and the slightly fuzzy head. Wonderful.
I had such exciting plans for us this week; today was to be fossil hunting; although I rather suspect it is something I will need to do on a weekend with Rye when my charge isn't with me; I've been told much clambering over rocks is required and that is simply not safe with C on my back, particularly as I'm not that nimble. I had planned to go down there, have a look see before deciding (i.e. assessing the risk for the paperwork I have to keep), and if it wasn't suitable then just take the kids to the sandy beach to play for the morning.
Tuesday would have been the first session of the swimming for our HE group, alas, I very much doubt we will be making that. Wednesday - well I'd planned today to call the lady who runs the french group to enquire about us coming along - I will still call in a moment or two; but have to wait until next week.
Fingers crossed Rye is feeling better by Thursday; that is toddler group in the morning and then soft play in the afternoon; although I'm beginning to loose my soft play joy as I think that is where Rye keeps picking up all these bugs. On the upside, we are starting to organise and suggesting more things to do with the kids and as the weather warms the parks, beach, woods etc will become our stomping grounds - can't wait!
Warm weather, so looking forward to it now; I actually felt dismayed when I realised it was snowing this morning, when I was out in the garden with the kids. The merest of flutters thankfully, hope it stays that way. Much as I adore snow, I've had enough and yearn for warmth.
