Welcome to my week at a glance 14! My last Week at a Glance post was before I took my three weeks off back in June! Since getting home, I have been focusing on other posts & haven’t gotten back to my Week at a Glance. I’ve missed writing them!
This past weekend was fabulous weather – it was sunny & warm. Actual summer conditions, as opposed to the rain & gray skies we’ve been having here in Ireland. We took total advantage of the loveliness & went to town for lunch. We had delicious scones, wraps, cappuccino & milkshakes. 🙂
After lunch, we had ice creams & watched the ducks swimming by. It was such a great day in the sunshine!
Unfortunately, our 8-year-old son broke his pinky finger. He was practicing Gaelic Football in the backyard. For my non-Irish readers, in Gaelic Football you kick the ball from your foot to your hand while running. The ball hit his pinky finger the wrong way & it was badly fractured. We ended up in A & E for 6 hours & back in the next day. The doctors manipulated his bone back into position while our son was under general anesthetic.
Everyone in the hospital was so great to us! The nurses took special care of our son & his Teddy. Everything our son received, Teddy did too, including a cast & sling. Teddy’s special care brought a smile to our son’s face & made his time in the hospital much nicer. Unfortunately, he now has to take it easy for the next few weeks. He’s normally very active & is finding it really tough.
We had a lovely evening outside. It was warm & calm when I took this photo from our backyard. It was a week mixed with lovely fun in the sun & also a nasty fracture. How was your week?
