After a week of heavy rains and cloudy skies, Summer has hit us full in the face. It's hot, hot, and will get much hotter still.
The Wildflower had a few nights of incredibly restless sleeping and I was a Zombie on Tuesday, not helped by a very irritable (understandbly so) child. Thankfully she slept a lot better Wednesday night. I always seem to be taken to the brink and pulled back just before the leap.
A friend helped me get through the headache-ridden-sleep-deprivation by breaking up our day with a trip to the bayside. The Wildflower was distracted with pebbles and birds. She's not interested in the cool water yet. Well, she is a fire sign afterall.
We heard that DIY Dad's parents will be staying with us for 20 days. They had said 10.. hmmmmmm... sneaky. But we love 'em.
This will be followed by our nieces (19 and 17) a week later for 2 weeks.
The cumin and pepper seedlings are looking good...
DIY Dad got the mould (UK spelling) situation sorted out. Phew!
We're taking walks in the morning along the bay if we're out of bed before 8:30am (rarely) and again in the early evening. It's too hot to venture out during the day.
And the BIG change in this, is that the Wildflower is no longer in a carrier. It didn't feel like such a big deal because I haven't had her in one for a while. I just carry her in my arms. But the heat has made it impossible, and now that she's walking she wants a different experience. So we scored a stroller on loan from friends. She loves it. I missed her face at first and kept bending down to say hi. What a sap!
I'm SO annoyed about the whole UK Home Education review, despite no longer living there. I also wish more American bloggers were just as outraged and blogging about it.
