I love fresh flowers in the house but they can be so expensive, so I take advantage of the spring daffodils that are available this time of year. In most supermarkets you can pick up a bunch for a pound. They come in bud but when they open they give me a lovely little bit of sunshine on my sideboard.
I’ve ordered Daffodils in my online shop for the past two weeks and the first bunch were just starting to droop when the shopping arrived the second week. I didn’t actually remember straight away to change them but when I noticed that the first bunch had finished looking good I asked my husband where the new bunch was as he was the one who had put the shopping away. He told me that there was no flowers in the shop, but I know that they were not missing from the receipt.
I didn’t really fuss too much, they were only a pound bunch of daffodils, not worth complaining of non delivery.
Later we were cooking dinner and as I went into the fridge I noticed a bunch of daffodils in the salad draw, my hubby had thought they were rather large spring onions!! I should have made him eat them, haha. They were okay though and still bloomed after being placed in my vase.
What do you think, Daffodils or spring onions?
Last week we got a text from the school inviting us to attend an assembly given by the Little Man’s class the same day. What! A little bit more notice would have been nice. Luckily we had nothing else on so we went around the school for 1.15pm. We were then treated to a fifteen minute class rendition of what it was like to live in Ancient Egypt. It was actually quite good, although I may have been a bit unnerved by the Mummy that got up and walked off after they had taken out his insides to put in jars and then wrapped him in bandages. The Little Man had a little story to tell about how the Egyptians entertained themselves playing a game called Senet. I love to hear my Little Man read, he does it with such expression.
Temporomandibular Joint Disorder
Now that’s a mouthful isn’t it? (pun intended!) We’ll call it TMJ and it’s the latest on the list of conditions for Star. We went to the GP on Friday for a referral to a maxillofacial specialist to see if anything can be done about it. The weird thing is, my older daughter had exactly the same thing at the same age. We would go to the hospital every month for about a year when they finally said they couldn’t do anything and we had to wait for it to get better. She still has trouble with it 16 years later. Maybe there are new treatments now? Apparently it’s quite common in children with connective tissue disorders like Elhers Danlos Syndrome.
Just in case you are wondering what TMJ is, it’s basically the joint in the jaw and the disorder is when it hurts, becomes inflamed and clicks out of place.
Happy Birthday Hubby.
Yesterday it was Graham’s birthday and for a treat we all spent the day at Bletchley Park which was the home of the World War Two Code Breakers. The stories are fascinating and so was our visit. Graham loves learning about history and although I’m not quite as enthusiastic as he is, I have to say I really enjoyed learning about the code breakers. It wasn’t made out to be glamorous, and a lot of the people working there had no idea what they were a part of until after the war because of all the secrecy. It was boring, monotonous work with few breaks, but I would have loved to have been a part of figuring out the codes and messages. I just love puzzles!
The kids had a great time too, they didn’t even notice that we’d skipped the play area, (quite by accident but by the time I realised I knew I wouldn’t have enough charge in my wheelchair to go back.)
Bletchley Park Mansion
From Ancient Egypt to World War II it’s been quite an historic week for us. How has your week been?
