This Post is Bump Free

...unlike the Christmas ones to come.

We had a good day today. All is unnervingly relaxed.  That may have something to do with the fact that I`m not hosting Christmas. My poor mum headed off to the supermarket before Zaki and I had even surfaced at 8 o`clock.  How terrible a daughter am I? On second thoughts, don`t answer that!

Wishing to blow away some cobwebs, we headed off in the horizontal rain and mildly strong winds to the park at nearby Montacute House



We were one of a handful (and that`s exaggerating slightly) of visitors in the park with the main house closed.


Granny and Zaki strode off in the direction of the swings resembling horses and made from recycled something.  Couldn`t quite work at what.


See?  Happy and smiling. No bumps at all...until about 5 o`clock this afternoon when I was in the sitting room and heard a bit splatty thud from the next door dining room.  I called out Zaki`s name and there was that awful silence before he wailed.  He had somehow slipped and hit his forehead on a wooden chest.  A large blue egg sized bump appeared fairly rapidly. Homeopathic remedy Arnica and frozen peas in a tea towel were administered along with lots of cuddles and a rapid emotional recovery was made.  The Christmas photos should be interesting though.


Zaki and I wish you all a very merry and bump free Christmas!

Ooops! Poor Zaki - bet Mummy had a few palpitations too!
Look like tires to me - or maybe I am confusing that with swinging with the Krankies!

Awe! Poor Zaki! He looks like he's a trooper though!

Poor Zaki! A month or so ago, my 3 year old grandson fell off the sofa (because he was jumping on it) hitting is head on the corner of the coffee table. A trip to the emergency room and many stitches later he was fine promising he wouldn't be doing that again...until the next day. Amazing how kids bounce back really quick!

Silly boys! Glad to hear it wasn't any worse. He sure looks cute all bundled up!

We'll always remember the year Zaki had a "third eye" for Christmas. Merry Christmas my friend! Enjoy your day with your family!

Nice wee pad you're getting to spend Christmas in there ;o) Glad Z got to have some fun before face-planting into the evil wooden chest. Hope he has exacted suitable revenge on it now ;o) Hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and New Year

Merry Christmas Annabella, I hope you've been enjoying festive and peaceful holidays with your family, eating tons of delicious food. I'll pretend I didn't read that question ;-)

This greeting reaches you a little later than I intended it. I haven't been much around in blogosphere, as I was dealing with the flu before Christmas. However, I didn't let it ruin my holidays.
