We are still here, hanging in but after a couple of rough nights, life has become extremely quiet. It turns out that children who get eczema have a terrible time with chicken pox and that is precisely what has happened with Hugo, his inner elbows covered so tightly with blisters he can barely move his arms. I think he and Jonno are just about to turn the corner though but at the moment, they are very, very sore and tired.
They have spent a lot of time curled up on the couch watching documentaries, something that suits them both and in particular Hugo. I have wondered at his fascination with them for a while and then it clicked... it is the only way a four and a half year old gets to watch blood and gore and violence - something that interests him greatly, especially in the animal world. Remember that this is the boy who likes to know what things look like on the inside (he really is very sweet and lovely it must be added).
For a change of pace, Archie and I are heading into town this morning to mingle with the greater population. Library first, then Farmers for a Transformer and after that, something delicious to eat.
Have a good weekend, Lots of love, Kate xxooxxooxx.
