Why is it that the day I really need Craig here he’s out? I’ve been feeling really ill all day and have thrown up numerous times and the boys have been really demanding - I know it was just attention seeking but I felt so awful I found it quite hard. This morning Alfie managed to get stung by a wasp - it wasn’t even deserved, he was just sat watching TV when it flew over to him and struck. His finger swelled up alarmingly and he was crying and telling me it hurt. I rang NHS Direct as I was worried about it with him being so young but they felt he’d be ok, and a dose of piriton later he was. Poor little thing!

We’ve had an appointment through for Millie to have her first assessment - not with an adult psychiatrist as we’d been told at all, but with the young people’s mental health team. Apparently it will take at least an hour , I guess they’ll be taking a full history and then decide where to go from there. I’m pleased it’s happened so soon as I was thinking it would be nearer to Christmas. I shall update once we’ve been.

Her ear infection seems to have cleared up now as well which is good. The second lot of anti-biotics was obviously the right one and the spray must have helped too. I think she’s got another 2 or 3 days of the medicine left and then we’ll see if it stays away.

I went to a scrap booking crop last week which I really enjoyed. I started scrap booking 2 years ago when Alfie was born but just don’t have the time to do it (find plenty of time to buy stash for it mind you!!) and it’s reignited my interest. I’m planning to go to the crops at least once a month so I get at least 3 hours to work on layouts and it’s nice to have some “me time” as well.

Good for you grabbing some ME time.
