Woe is me, for Boy #2 has an ear infection, and for the last couple of days the Potski household's mornings have started in crisis.
Anyone who's children have never suffered from such ailments (i.e. me, before last weekend) may have no idea of the fun and games involved in pinning a reluctant 6 year old to the bed whilst administering ear drops first thing in the morning. I don't blame him for the fuss - the thought of someone putting drops into my ears and telling me to 'lie still and just relax' whilst this was happening sets my teeth on edge - but it can put rather a downer on one's day.
And that's just for me. No wonder the patient is a little tetchy as a result.
So I need a little cheering up, which is why I'm posting the picture below. This, ladies and gentlemen, is what is considered attractive headgear for tourists to buy, by the side of the Georgian Military Road, on the way to the ski resort we visited last week.
I'm not sure what this says about Georgia's impression of foreigners. I suspect that I shouldn't dwell on that too much. But in hindsight, if Boy #2 had been wearing one of these babies, perhaps our days would be starting a little more smoothly right now...
