not much happening

We've had a lovely weekend of not doing much. Baba has not been well. He had ear infection which has cleared but now he has an eye infection...not good...and the doctor is not giving him any antibiotics as it is a viral thing and it should get better in couple of days. So prayers are appreciated for our little man's health. He has had couple of nights of good sleep but tonight he has been crying quite a few times so we'll see how tonight goes. 
We've been watching some football - Euro 2008 - it's been quite relaxing not having England in it, no worries about them getting through, no matches that we 'have to' watch. I've seen couple of the matches and David's seen a few more. We had a euro 2008 sweepstake at work, I got Russia so I haven't got much hope of winning the price but it's bit of fun. We had the draw in the Friday morning coffee morning (Marks & Sparks chocolate chip cookies are intergral part of these...) before the competition started, most people are taking part so there are three of us per team. Both of the cleaner ladies drew Switzerland and they were not impressed.
We did some gardening yesterday which was nice. David sorted out the pavement stones around the decking so he can just mown the lawn straight over them. I did lots of weeding and sorted out my bamboo canes for the beans and peas. I have given up on my idea of organic gardening as the snails and slugs have eaten all of my broccoli, carrot and courgette seedlings. I got some slug pellets that are like sharp little stones to put around the plants and they are suppose to be organic as they haven't got any chemicals in them and work on the fact that they are sharp.
We went to a meeting in a church in Newcastle with a guy from Argentina on Thursday night which was really good. He was called Claudio something and was really nice. We had a brilliant time.
