What a difference a week can make? This time last week it was drizzly, rainy and I even put on the heating on one occasion. Today we and chilling, and the sun is sunshine at Brompton Lakes in Richmond. This week has most certainly seen warmer weather, and it’s been a long time coming.
But for now I will take what sun I can get, and be thankful it will be scorching hot when we visit Dubai in August. We are just waiting on our agenda, which we are all so excited to see.
There has been a touch of drama in the Christie household as Jack has broken a bone in his foot. I feel so mean as I sort of disregarded it and said you will be fine tomorrow! Then when it wasn’t I tried to send him to work saying it will be fine tonight. But he was adamant so I took him to the hospital. This is the 3rd ankle injury between Jack and Chris in 3 months, and every time we send the crutches back to the hospital someone needs them again within a week.
So yes, I was complacent. Memories of the last 2 visits, hours sat in casualty, X-rays to find it was just a sprain. I expected more of the same and was a bit grumpy about yet another visit. But yes, bad mother alert, it is fractured and needed a cast on it.
Not only do I feel so guilty, but also I am never ever going to hear the last of it. I don’t think I will risk sending the crutches back a 3rd time. I can’t face another day in a hospital. The staff were amazing, but are under a lot of pressure with not enough hours in the day.
I have also done a bit of cocktail making, my recipe will appear on the Iconic Lights site very soon, but it was so good I am thinking I may share it over here too. I do love a cocktail especially on a sunny day.
Today we are spending a little time with my family at the gorgeous lodge at Bromptom Lakes in Richmond. Check out this view.
It is lovely to get away and chill sometimes. Away from the washing machine, school run and other daily jobs we have to do. And what a gorgeous location to chill with family, it is breathtakingly beautiful, and has everything you would possibly need. So for today I will be mostly chilling. Have a wonderful weekend.
