I didn't realise there was a walled garden with glass house. It was a nice, short walk down through some gorgeous bluebell woods. They weren't quite out, so I'm hoping to go next weekend. Bear and DH were unimpressed by the flowers but enjoyed the actual walk. Bear hurtled round the grounds, had a marvellous time and bought three postcards.
When we got home his pal was waiting and bear spent a lot of the afternoon running up and down the street playing football. As there were no serious injuries and only minor amounts of mud, I took it as a win.
Bear was utterly wiped out by the time bedtime came, and I think he had got too hot. He was violently sick all over the study carpet and immediately felt better. I didn't. Of course I gave him cuddles, tucked him in and stayed until he fell asleep. It took about fifteen seconds but I waited around a while just to be sure. Then I had clean up. I started off with spray cleaner, then water with generous amounts of disinfectant, then finally a good layer of baking powder which I let lie overnight. It did the trick. There's no smell and the only stain is white powder in the carpet.
Bear went into school today after I checked with the school. I'm pretty sure that it was just bear being hot and tired. He managed okay, but was very disappointed that I didn't take him to football. He looked at me with massive shadows under his eyes and hollow looking cheeks and assured me that he really wasn't too tired to run round a pitch non stop for an hour.
I'm going back to my blanket. I can't wait to post the pics once I've finished.
