It was the last day of the Christmas holidays today so Tori, Arthur & I headed out for lunch whilst Caius went to rescue Felix (the glow-plugs didn’t fix him and he got stranded at my parents’ yesterday). The Smalls took their new scooters out with them and Tori was quite proficient by the end of it – Arthur wasn’t quite so sure though and I ended up carrying his most of the way whilst he walked.
One of the things on my Day Zero list is to finish the first draft of my novel ‘Faerie or No’ so today I headed to the library whilst the Smalls were at school and tried to get myself back into the swing of it.
Yesterday, Tori managed to scratch Arthur’s nose and today in the back of the car on the school run Arthur scratched the scab off it and poured blood all over the place. We cleaned him up and applied the appropriate first aid – Butterfly Plaster anyone?
Last night was great – the food all turned out well and everyone seemed to enjoy it. We watched possibly the worst werewolf adaptation of Little Red Riding Hood in the history of ever but it was a good giggle. The only down side was having to face this when I woke up with a bit of a fuzzy head from the bubbles we drank.
