I suppose regular bloggers set aside time to blog. Whereas when we get the opportunity to sit down and relax the last thing we think about is writing up 'interesting' things we have been doing.
The last month has been a roller-coaster of illness and last few weeks of summer holidays, not to mention a few other things. Harry and a few friends visited the farm which was at the centre of the e.coli outbreak in the UK.
Of course when he became ill we were unaware of the seriousness of the situation as nothing had been reported and initially the symptoms for us were pretty much the same as any tummy bug. On top of that Charlie and Jasper became ill as well. The long and the short of it was that by the time they were all tested none of them still had e.coli in their systems and may never have had it but they were all a lot better in themselves. We are sure Harry did have it.
It is such a shame that we are all now going to overreact about petting farms and most will probably close because the children love them. If only the government had acted quicker and taken decisive action we would not have the extremes that are now going on in the press and general opinion.
One weekend (while Harry was still being sick although we did not know it until bed time) we went camping quite localy to where we live. Having a 'what's that noise' Charlie sleeping one side and a very recently sick Harry the other was not a position I would have willingly put myself into out of choice. However the night passed peacefully, the boys had a great time climbing, flying kites, playing, swinging, running etc.
Jasper and mummy were very sensible and stayed at home
