I missed a playdate, a trip to the cinema with Rob (really sad about this!), a visit to the robot safari at the Science Museum, and I reluctantly cancelled mum's birthday lunch we were hosting. The GP prescribed antibiotics and steroids, and she's on a million puffs of ventolin. Pah.
My energy levels have been low, and the older two have had to entertain themselves to a certain extent. Puzzles, glitter, bricks, ipad/nexus games have been the order of the day.
We did leave the house to pick the car up from the garage, and all three enjoyed being in the taxi.
So, today. Meg and I went to the out of hours GP at the hospital. Meanwhile, Rob, Fred and Betsy went to the Science Museum. The robot safari event sounded great, but the kids weren't that into it. Rob said the science guys who were showing their robots weren't great at engaging younger visitors. They loved the hands on stuff in the Launchpad though.
Hooray for trains.
Gas and liquid.
Changing airflow to make boat move.
The late autumn/early winter colour is beautiful at the moment. Betsy was amazed to see the whole of our path was yellow from the dropped leaves.
As it's the last day of November, I've taken all the autumn stuff down now. The leaves are gone from the front door, the decorations down from the front window. I've emptied the nature tray, and will set up some winter surprises for the kids to discover in the morning.
The autumn gnomes had a little party, next to the orange candle that's been on the nature tray since September.
Goodbye autumn, hello winter.
