Another damned cold!!!

I've been sick for the last few days with another damned cold! That's an average of one a month since this year began! I started with the flu around the 1st of the year, which had me down and out for nearly 3 weeks. After our trip to Paris, I was sick again for a few days and I spent the last two days in bed again. I tried to function normally yesterday, but I couldn't concentrate on anything and spent a good part of my day and night sleeping on the couch and watching TV. I'm feeling a lot better today. I still have a terrible cold and not much of a voice (which I'm sure Wayne is happy with), but I at least don't feel like sleeping all day.
I had a really good weekend (despite the start of my cold). Friday night we had an excellent dinner with Doug, which went well because we didn't drink too much and were home at a decent hour, so we were in good shape for our company on Saturday. Aniela (my American expat friend who lives a few hours away), her husband Herman and baby, Ruby came over for the day on Saturday. We had a really great time and I'm so sorry we didn't do it months ago because we've been phone friends for nearly a year now, but haven't gotten together before and now they're moving back to the States and we'll be lucky if we get a chance to see each other again. I can't say enough how much I enjoyed their visit.
Sunday, my cold got the best of me and today is the first day that I'm back on my feet. I've been trying to get back into the swing of things, but I'm struggling to even pick my song of the week. Hopefully, my cold medicine will take effect soon and I can start functioning normally again...

Our Disaster of a Day!

My in-laws just left after a five day visit.  I don't mind it being a five day visit, but then again, five days of your house not being your own is always a bit unsettling and although I don't look forward to their departure when they are here, I can't say I'm sad to have things go back to normal. As a treat for my son's birthday, we took him to the Museum of Natural History in London on Thursday.  He chose to go because we took him last year (he's been crazy about dinosaurs since he was three years old).  They give out adventure packs at the museum which consist of a back pack, safari hat, and binoculars with an adventure to follow during their visit.  The back pack has clues in it to solve a mystery.  Last year it had a dinosaur claw, a tooth and a sample of dinosaur skin he had to match up to one on display.  He had a great time solving the mystery and even remembered which dinosaur it ended up being. Last year's trip was wonderful.  We walked right in,

Fight Club for Five Year Olds - Part 2

The other mother and I went into the school to meet with the teacher and the assistant head.  We both let them know how upset we were that we were not informed that our children were sent to the office and how much we were against the children being allowed to play fighting games on the playground.  I told them I wouldn't allow it at home and I'm really unhappy that it's being allowed at school.  They admitted it was a problem and explained that they are planning to introduce a a scheme to teach the children to play in a safe way.  They will be calling it 'Super Hero Training'.  They plan to give out capes & masks out to children who behave well as rewards at playtime.  They will have assemblies where they will teach the children to play fighting games without making contact.  I find this to be absurd.  The problem has gone on to long and I doubt they will be able to teach little children to change their games when they have sixty other children to look after on

Playing with my new lens...

I got a new camera lens for my birthday last week.  I don't have a lot of time to play with it, but this is one of the first shots I took...
