Friday was most definitely a miss! We arrived at Dave's hospital appointment for ten o'clock as planned, only to be told we were in the wrong place. I guess alarm bells should have been ringing at that point! A lovely nurse gave directions to where we needed to be and so the kids and I settled for our usual hospital home school. Less than ten minutes later Dave appeared with the news that, Dr Majeed was in Pakistan and that Dave should have received a letter to state that his appointment had been cancelled! By now we were all fed up and Pip had not been feeling at all well that morning, so it was a case of raid the shop for snacks and coffee bar drinks for Dave and myself. A plastic full Friday for sure!
However we have now sourced a butcher that will wrap our produce in grease proof paper and place in our own glass Tupperware containers so that is most definitely a win!
We had a ray of sunshine on a very cloudy day when we attended Ollie's 1st Birthday party on Saturday. Everyone brought a dish to share and there was plenty of food to eat. Time really has flown and this boy is most definitely a toddler:
Ben and I attended diabetic clinic this morning and thankfully his blood averages have remained fairly stable which is encouraging. On the way there, I had an issue with the driver's side window which then meant another trip out this afternoon to our car dealership. The mechanic managed to make the window safe but the car is booked in for the replacement part on Thursday of next week. I could have done without the extra trip this afternoon as my health isn't great but thankfully Dave and Ben held the fort at home. Ben made a super yummy lamb casserole, served with broccoli and boiled potatoes and Dave took Pip and AJ into town on the bus to the library.
It's Friday tomorrow and Saturday is a much needed home day, Thank God :-)
