Germ magnets

We've had a fortnight of illness.  Bleugh.  Meg developed a tummy bug, and it rumbled around her, me and Fred for a week or so.  We missed our planned trip to the Museum of London, and more disappointingly the visit to the farm that I organised.  The feedback from those that went was really good, so I am pleased about that.  The week was a bit of a write off really, lots of movies on the sofa.

Everyone was feeling well on Saturday though, so Rob took them to the London Aquarium (I was off visiting a friend in Hastings for the weekend!).

Sunday brought the tummy bug back, so we skipped TVAP on Monday.  Library visit on Tuesday, everyone well so swimming and parkour on Wednesday.

On Thursday we went to Wendover Woods to meet a local home ed family.  It was so lovely, 5 children aged 13 down to 6 playing together.  They had such a great time, and we've arranged another date.  Fred and Ollie both like armed forces-type play, and both went dressed in camo gear.

Friday we made it to Mohawk for archery, magnetic slime, beading and general play and enjoyment.  I was in two minds about going as Meg was coming down with a cough.  

Betsy made party invitations today, and Meg did some apple printing.

As I write, Meg is coughing and coughing.  She's had umpteen puffs of blue inhaler, with a good sprinkling of brown.  I'm close to taking her to see a doctor (which, it being Saturday evening, would be A and E).   Fingers crossed she gets better!
