After an early start at the hospital for a blood test, I am having a much better day than yesterday. All my joints are still quite swollen and painful but the reaction has started to subside and I even felt well enough to finish the 'Outlaw' printing set for a friend's birthday.
We cycled there in the rain which was Charlie's first bike ride as a family. He has been out on his bike before but I have always walked. Today I took my own bike and we dropped Josie at the friend's party and rode back passed this delighful meadow of wild flowers.
There was a fun day on the field at the back of our house so Charlie and I went there, where he tried everything out. He stroked a two week old baby Alyesbury duckling.
Learnt the diablo from a Chinese lady.
Found his ideal purchase from the ice cream van. It's called a Popeye and is an ice-cream with a lolly stuck in the side!
He held the Olympic torch which now belongs to the torchbearer Ray Fisk who was nominated due to his 36 years volunteering with the Boys Brigade.
Charlie enjoyed the archery but didn't manage to hit the target.
And this is his fruity interpretation of the Olympic rings, made with five piles of fruit to represent the five continents...delicious.
