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!
