Week 19 had some spectacular lows but also one very special event. Life is a rollercoaster right now. We are determined that it will get better.
The Boy after his confirmation at Salisbury Cathedral with the Rt Rev David Hallatt (so proud!); visit by GD’s Kiwi uncle and godfather at Blades training; a happy moment on Northbrook when the Eldest’s wonderful friends (and siblings!) visit; what to do with chopsticks no.21; the Littlest and friend at Hatherden Fete; the high point of a rather rubbish birthday spent at the hospital – wild flowers and homemade cake; Wagamama featured heavily on the menu this week.
Great start to the week, rubbish finish.
Arriving home late and seeing the cherry tree almost completely clothed in leaves brings joy; field of rape at Abbotts Ann Down with a dead tree in the centre of the field; finding the huge gorilla at the Wyevale Garden Centre with a ‘SOLD’ sign on it! Who? and Why?!!; statue of politician Sidney Herbert in Victoria Park, Salisbury; desperate sleeping beauty, country lanes lined with glorious Queen Anne’s Lace; back to Winchester and Northbrook.
I am behind, but life is currently a long way off simple; week 17, however, was good.
Small, but beautifully formed, Victoria Park in Salisbury; happy Kiwi; beautiful Wiltshire countryside; grand opening of the fabulous Andover Lawn Tennis Club; the Tribe walking to the tennis club (bliss!); GCSE art of the Eldest by her amazingly, fabulous and loyal friend.
Another week of mayhem … but we all survived.
The Littlest loses another tooth, 2 sisters and 7 cousins finally getting together, spring lambs, walking to St Mary’s on Easter Sunday, the Tribe visiting the Eldest in hospital, when in doubt just talk to the donkeys, stunning Hampshire views from the hospital car park.
