A trip into London

I'm on the waiting list for the waiting list for the waiting list for the Pain Management Clinic, Queens Square Hospital, London.  This being despite my doctor phoning them while I was in his surgery way back when...and telling them that I have been suffering from constant pain since the beginning of 2009.  Good ol' National Health System?!

Fortunately I have medical insurance which I carried over with me from New Zealand, so we resorted to using this as enough is enough.

So into London Henry came with me on Wednesday...

I think he thought he was going on a grand adventure...

We did manage to spend an hour in a lovely park near the hospital, but the playground was packed with children visiting from a local school - oh the cheek of it!

Henry is wearing his lovely cricket vest sent by Erica from New Zealand.

Instead the day was spent in big noisy machines...Xray, MRI and SPECT CT Scanner.  Not a lot of fun for a lad all set for adventures...I don't think he will be planning on coming on any more hospital visits with me!

Just got to wait until 14th October for the results now to see if they show anything.

Helping in the garden.

Yes Henry the sun really is shining and I don't think you need your lovely woolly hat on that matches the gorgeous jumper that Erica from New Zealand made you.  In fact I really don't think you needed to wear the jumper today, even though it was overcast and foggy here this morning.

Are you just thinking about weeding, or are you helping?  You are, oh yes I see, your hand is reaching out for the weed.  

What are you doing up there?

Oh I see, you are trying to pick that apple.

Careful now.

 That's it, now you can come down carefully and eat it if you like.

I thought I might find you on here!

Nearing last posting date for Autumn Swap

Friday is last day for posting your Autumn/Winter Sasha Swap parcels. How is everyone getting on? If/when you receive your parcels if you would like to do a post about what you sent and received please send me the link so I can also do a post. Alternatively, for those without a blog, please send me some pictures and I will do a post for you on here. I'm sure we would all like to be able to share pictures of what we sent and received.

I'm afraid I have to admit to doing some procrastinating...and as some of you know I've been away for a week in Germany, so am on last minute panic mode! Especially as I have got one of those really busy weeks with not enough hours in the day. I have an all day appointment at a hospital in London on Wednesday for various scans and tests, so won't be able to get anything done then either.

However, I am glad I put it off to some extent as I was given a lovely bundle of fabric by my friend in Germany and have put some of it to good use in making some outfits for the swap. Two things made, two more things cut out ready to sew up.

Looking forward to hearing from everyone who has taken part.

Fun at the Palace in Ludwigsburg

On Monday 19th September we took the kids to Ludwigsburg Palace, the largest baroque castle in Germany. It is surrounded by beautiful landscaped gardens, with lots of fun things to look at and do for the children. At this time of the year they hold the Pumpkin Festival display which was fantastic and I will show more of these pictures over here on Monday.

Now what do all little boys love?

Why dinosaurs of course!

Ooh it is very big says Henry as he tentatively walks towards the triceratops.
Nope..too scary!

Now this is a bit more like it.

I wonder if I can push this pumpkin over? Henry thinks as he tries pushing it, while Emily looks on exasperated.

Look at the fountain and ducks, they look like they are having a grand time swimming. Don't fall in Henry!

One of the many pumpkin displays proves the ideal place to have a sit and a chat.

So what do you think of it so far Emily? asks Henry.

Typical boy, couldn't resist sliding down the windscreen!

I hope you didn't dent the bonnet Henry! You didn't? Oh a dinosaur stepped on it. I can see the foot print now. Take care it doesn't come back again and stand on you.

Emily was very taken with some of the pumpkin displays and especially liked this one.

The grounds also had a wonderful playground for children.

Would you like to have a turn at being the frog queen? Oh and king!

No adventure park is complete without a ride in a boat...

Oh look Henry and Emily, you will be going under a bridge house soon.

Henry decides to be brave, and stands up. Come on Emily, you can see much more standing up.

See I told you, isn't this fun, under we go.

'Look', says Henry, a whales mouth...not sure I want to go in there!

Luckily they escaped being swallowed by the whale, only to be tempted by something even more dangerous!

'Look,' says Henry, 'a Gingerbread house.
Come on lets climb over the fence'.

I'd be careful if I was you!

Oh no, look out! Henry points to the window, and Emily looks up startled.


Let's get out of here!

Did they get away? Did they have a lucky escape from the witch's oven?

Looks like they may have done! Phew!

An adventure playground, sounds like a much safer option.

Who is going to drive the train?

I'll be the engine driver Emily, you can be the passenger.

Wow, what are you doing up there?

Surveying your kingdom? Whose face can I see peeking out?

Oh it is you Henry.

Emily is sure she spies something interesting in the distance and is off like a shot!

Oh wow, look at that! A Merry Go Round.

A must for all children.

Very grand indeed.

The grey looks like rather a wild horse.

What's that? You want to ride the black horse Emily?

Wheee, around we go!

Time to get off now Emily, the man is waiting patiently (with a slightly bemused look on his face).

Emily, it doesn't matter if you look the other way, I can still see you and you need to come down now.

That's it, time to say goodbye, after all it was a busy and long day with lots to see and do.
