Whilst he was away with Dad, Sara, Pip and I made Scotch Pancakes for a mid morning snack:
Pip had great fun whisking, mixing and then eating! We forgot to take a picture of the finished articles, oops!
Pip and Sara then made a jaunt to out local park to collect further specimens for her assignment. Pip is still currently recovering from a heavy cold/croupy cough so slept in the push chair on the way home. She managed to acquire a friend from the park and here she is:
" Ladybird, Ladybird, fly away home..."
After lunch we decided to make the most of the sunshine and visited Leighton Moss Nature Reserve. I wasn't totally enthusiastic as I was still suffering with chronic joint and back pain, but the sunshine lifted my spirits and as always the kids enjoyed their visit. We also met up with our homeopath from years back, who having retired from her practice, now works in the visitor centre one day a week. It was lovely to catch up.
It's a boy thing! Skimming stones and digging in the mud.
Pip pressing the buttons on the interactive wall in the education centre.
A level crossing wait and a passing train, a treat for the railway enthusiasts in the family!
Today Dave and Benedict visited Simon and in addition to lively banter, creatures and masks were made. Pip and I went to visit Bea and her mindees, it was good to catch up.
A mask in the making.
Curly, whurly creatures.
At the risk of sounding a bore, diabetes still all over the place. Finally managed to settle B at 11:30pm, having administered another corrective dose and set an increased basal, in the hopes of stabilising his blood sugars. If left unchecked he'll start to burn ketones and could deteriorate quite rapidly. It is now 01:00 and I'm about to check him again. The house is tidy thanks to fly lady and so I'll hop into bed with some knitting, I think it'll be another hour or two before it's safe to leave him. Knitting in this household truly is therapy!! Bonne Nuit!
