QUICK INTERRUPTION – 25 February 2017  – From one Mum to another. I am currently in the process of writing up the diary notes that I made over the Christmas period. For several reasons, this is taking longer than usual. Firstly, those lawyer, Mum, CF responsibilities have taken up a lot of time lately. Secondly, […]

12 December 2016 – “It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas“.  It’s nearly Christmas.  It’s cold outside, H and I left the house with hats, very large coats and scarves. I manage to have both of us in the car with the engine running for 7.45am (all medication and inhalers etc. up to date). […]

Saturday 3 December 2016 – Tidy House Hubby is away on business. He’ll be away for four days.  That means four days of tidy house, with sides free from coins, keys, receipts, earphones and phones.  I won’t have to play hopscotch on the lounge floor to avoid the laptop, cables and iPad and I don’t […]

Monday, 28 November 2016 – Third and final day in Houston I enjoy a post-midnight feast of macarons in bed. I love this hotel. I’m far too excited to sleep straight away, which is not helped by the sugar content of the sweet treats, so I watch Christmas related TV until I doze off. 8.00am […]

Saturday 26 November – Collect tickets When we arrived at the hotel last night we dropped off our bags in our very comfortable room and headed to the bar, where a live band played seventies’ soul. We enjoyed (strong) cocktails and really good food before bed. I should be exhausted but I’m giddy. This morning […]

Saturday, 15 October 2016 –  “Mummy, can I have a little sister?“ Lesson learned today. Don’t test your child’s ability to bat a ball (albeit inflatable) in your living room. She might be bloody brilliant and she may thwack it across the room and knock a full cup of hot tea (sweet with honey) into […]

23 September 2016.   I have spoken to one of the Doctors on the CF Ward. She was lovely. I have an appointment for a flight simulation test. This will test whether I can withstand the flight without oxygen.  It requires several blood samples being taken from my ear. It’s worth it, it’s worth it, it’s […]

21 September 2016 It’s Grannie Day but Grannie is late. Argh! I hadn’t factored that into my morning preparations. I have a 9.00am meeting with a client at their premises.   Hubby left before we were even awake. H doesn’t want me to get ready, she wants to cuddle. I managed to put my finger through […]
