Feeling better?

Well, I managed to plant out half the French Beans before Garden Boy woke up screaming. Five minutes later and he was asleep again, this time on my shoulder. He did not want to lie down on his own. This is very unusual for Garden Boy so I figured something must be wrong so I indulged him with a long cuddle. Lovely. Still no spots - but he is certainly suffering from something. I am almost hoping it is the pox so we get it all out of the way in one go.

Garden Girl felt much better after her afternoon sleep and helped me plant the last row of peas with careful precision. Then when Garden Dad came home from work she helped him finish the cucumber supports while Garden Boy played football and basketball with the foam he was using to prevent the bamboo canes poking our eyes out. Garden Dad is very proud of his work and will showcase his supports in a blog post all of his own. I think he wants to make sure I don't take the credit for his work.

This morning the sun is shining but I am informed that tomorrow will be wet so when Garden Boy has enjoyed his daily dose of Thomas the Tank Engine (I never tire of watching him dance to the theme tune - he loves it) we will be spending the day in the garden.

  1. I think you will probably find that Garden Boy's Chicken Pox spots will show up soon. If he has caught them off Garden Girl there is an incubation period before the spots appear. The same thing happened with my two. I'm glad to hear that Garden Girl is feeling a little better now, it's horrible when they're feeling under the weather and there's not much you can do for them.
