Half way through August already and I’ve not done half the things I wanted to. Its been a bit of an up and down week. A few more steps from Bodhi, too much medical stuff but some great days out so not a bad one all in all.
Eye appointment all good
One of the routine checks that Charley has to have due to arthritis is regular eye checks. This is to make sure she doesn’t have a condition called Uveitis (inflammation of the uvea). So far she has been clear of this but its always a little worrying when she goes for these tests that something will show up as there aren’t always any symptoms to show for it. This time she was due an eye-sight test – looking at pictures up close and far away. Much more interesting than the test we get as adults. Then she had an eye appointment to check the cells of her eyes with a slit lamp. Her eyes were absolutely fine – its always a relief to get this one over and done with.
He’s up, he’s up, he’s up oh no he’s down
Yay, Bodhi is doing a lot more walking by himself and he is so excited about it (and me too!). Things are about to change again.
A trip to Hobbledown
We had a trip to Hobbledown on Monday of this week. If you missed it click here. It was a great day out. There were plenty of animals for the children to see, sand pit areas, a soft play area, jumping pillows and more. This was definitely one of our highlights of the summer.
A family day
We had a lovely day on Saturday. Everyone was asleep when my alarm went off so I decided we’d have a morning off swimming to catch up on some sleep, it’s so refreshing to have an uninterrupted sleep! Much needed. Anyway, we had a nice lunch in our local Bills and then went to the park where they were having a celebration for the end of WW2 with singing, food stalls, face painting, rides for children etc. Charley had to have her face painted again with some very pretty flowers. The day was finished off by the children doing some watering in the garden when we got home.
A visit to Rural Life Centre
Our week was finished off by a trip to the Rural Life Centre as they were having a family day for the end of WW2 as well. It was another lovely day out with lots of things to do for the children including children’s races, a street party, apple bobbing, hat making and rides on the light railway. Even my husband got to have a go at wood-turning on a foot powered lathe.
