Waving to Sian and all the other bloggers on this Monday morning hoping you have all had a good weekend. Saturday for us was one of those days when you wish you had stayed in bed. It started with a little dent in one of the cars which brought tears for one of girls. Late in the day it was my turn. How did I manage to trip over a stone and end up flat on my front in a field? Fortunately there was no harm done other than some very muddy trousers!
They say all mishaps happen in threes. I hadn't long brushed off the mud when we had another casualty and more serious this time. Our youngest had been squashed against a stable door by a very large and bad mannered horse. This time it was a trip to A&E, a long wait and a diagnosis of bruised ribs. She did manage to pose for a photo on the way out of hospital with three ailing chimp sculptures outside A&E. Apparently part of a series of artwork around the new hospital.
Sunday fortunately was a better day apart for one very uncomfortable lady even with regular painkillers. We all benefited from the extra hour after our late night. Sunday roast was of course on the menu, roast pork this week. Then the warm sunny afternoon gave an opportunity for getting some garden jobs done. Brian continued with his hedge trimming.
Kate helped me pick some more Bramley apples. Well she picked and I caught them.
We decided to leave the small ones for the birds.
Talking of birds. I have left the sunflower heads for them to feed on the seeds but there is not much sign of them taking them as yet.
So on we advance into the second week of half term which is just as well as I think our girl is going to need a few days rest. I hope you all have a good week and I look forward to hearing about everyone else's weekend.
