I apologise for the absence of posts but it has been a busy week which began in A & E when we were told my daughter's sore foot was due to two broken bones.
After her foot was put in plaster she was sent home on crutches with an appointment for the next day when a new cast would be fitted.
I won't go into the details other than to say I understand doctors sometimes get it wrong.
But for those two days it was a struggle.
Have you ever tried to bath a 15-year-old with waist length hair and a leg in plaster?
This weekend startred with some lovely sunshine and the chance to watch my youngest son play football which was a family affair.
My 17-year-old has just started coaching the team and my husband has been manager of the team for the past six years.
It also marked the start of winter which I measure when the last leaf leaves my cherry tree.
As usual Sunday started with a sprint round the supermarket.
Here is Ben baking some meringues for our evening meal which were delicious.
I would also like to thank everyone for their suggestions about how to wear my Karen Millen dress.
I have decided to go with hair down but swept to one side, big ear-rings, a silver bangle, bare legs, black strappy sandals and cream clutch bag.
I will preview the look soon.
After Sunday Lunch with the family we settled down to watch a film before the fun starts all over again.
How was it for you?
