A few good things

This weekend just gone had some surprises in store...like Amelie coming down with a tummy bug on our drive north on Friday. Not so pretty. Poor little thing, it was her first tummy bug ever and she was just horrified by the whole deal. It didn't get any easier when we arrived in the near-dark (goodbye, summer...sigh) to find we were completely, 100% out of water at the country house. Eeeeeek.

Saturday was a bit of a write-off, but by the end of the day we had water, the pump that had caused all the problems was fixed and Amelie was happy...(we got off lightly, she was actually fine all weekend!). I'm very grateful to my lovely little family for being such cheerful troopers even when sick and a little bit smelly (that Saturday night shower was bliss, I can tell you). The weather was amazing and we actually ended up having such a nice weekend – the last official weekend of summer, somehow! How is it nearly March already?

 This super man.
