Mixed weather - lovely to get some rain on the plants, much needed but the water table needs much more to recover, but please revert to raining at night again - a lot easier all round to know whether to put a coat on or if I'm going to end up carrying it when the sun comes out again. Ah well, mustn't grumble too much.
Started the week with Imogen not feeling well but insisting she was fine for the school trip on Monday to a wonderful gardens not too far away, Mama was a helping parent too. It was fun but wet, wet, wet. Straight to doctors on our return to school to find she needed antibiotics for an ear infection, and is quite blocked up with a cold. But she has picked up as the week has gone by.
Then Tuesday evening I felt terrible, such a sudden painful swollen throat resulting in no sleep on Wednesday night and another trip to the doctors for me and Alex (who started to get a bad throat too), so now we are all on antibiotics! Well at least we'll get it all out of the way together. I knew mine was painful but when the triage nurse looks in your mouth and goes "Argh yes, it's pretty bad" and no more need for investigating, you know it's bad.
So not a lot else going on here, no allotment or garden time - just keeping the seedlings in the greenhouse watered awaiting a break in the weather to plant them out. We have a local plant swap soon so any spares will go there and to my Dad.
Looking forward to next week, nothing really planned just looking forward to feeling more human again. We did harvest some lovely spinach, sorrel, wild garlic and other salad leaves and have been enjoying fresh salads from the garden accompanied by our Welsh onions too. Delicious.
