This week there was no over word that I could use to sum it up. It has been
Our house is a new build and it holds the heat, which is perfect in the winter but not so good in the summer. We have been keeping an eye on the temperature on our thermostat all week, it has been a point of great discussion, and last night it reached 27 degrees. To put this into perspective in the winter when we put the heating on we set it between 21.5 – 22 degrees.
This meant Darren has dug out the fans and we even brought Little E a fan for her room on Tuesday. We have had three fans running since Tuesday trying to keep us cool. Our electricity bill is going to be fun!
This year Ethan has decided that he is scared of the fans. We have no idea where this has come from as last year he had great fun switching them on and off. This has also meant he has been harder to get to sleep at night as he hasn’t been sure about the fan in his room. We have had to keep it in there as he had a nose bleed on Monday night and we need to keep him as cool as possible to keep the nose bleeds at bay.
The heat also means that it’s paddling pool time! We have had the paddling pool out ready for when Ethan gets home from school. This is a first for Little E and it’s been fantastic watching them both having fun in the water. Having a sibling to play with has made Ethan enjoy the water even more and it really has been the highlight of our week.
It has also been quite a big week for Little E. Not only has she had the milestone of being in the paddling pool for the first time, we also took her for a paddle in the sea on Wednesday. There was even some first steps on Tuesday and she walked right into the middle of our front room.
So even though this week has been hot which has brought with it some struggles, it has also brought with it a pretty amazing week.
