Thursday 23rd May 2013 – You couldn’t make this up even if you tried!

Well I decided not to go down the allotment this morning as we kept getting heavy showers, it was a good thing really. Before I tell you the story, let me assure you that I wouldn’t send my kids to school if they are really poorly. So there I was waiting for a cake to finish cooking when I got a phone call from my daughter’s school saying she was in the sick bay very pale and with a tummy ache, and could I come and collect her asap. The cake had 30 minutes left, so that was just about enough time to go and collect her and be back before the buzzer went. So I parked the car and just got out when my phone went again, and this time it was my son’s school….Yesterday on the way home from school he fell out a tree, landed on his bottom and his right hand. His arm and hand still hurt this morning, but I gave him Ibuprofen and packed him off to school. He was in the school office asking for more medication. So I picked up Emily and took her home, gave her a hot water bottle and some medication, took the cake out the oven and went to pick up George, and take him to the A&E. If it was still hurting that much there must be something wrong with it. He’s right handed and it hurt to write and generally was painful. On saturday he’s going away with the scouts til wednesday, so I needed to know what, if anything was wrong. After 3 x-rays they’ve come to the conclusion that they can’t see any fractures, and the bone is just bruised. That’s the news I wanted to hear, but I’ll have to make sure he rests it as much as possible for the rest of the week, and hope I don’t get a phone call when he’s away at camp to say otherwise. After I’d made myself a well earned up of tea, I got the kids to look at my “To do list” for today, and commented that no where on it was an item saying “Go and pick kids up from school and take George to the A&E”. My life would be so boring without them….I love the really.
