28 August – 4 September 2016 Having enjoyed a lovely relaxing Saturday and a lazy Sunday morning with lots of cuddles from H, I sat down for brunch, which had been lovingly prepared by Hubby. Mmmm, I could get used to this. I had managed to stream a Barbra Streisand interview on CBS Sunday Morning. […]

16 July – August 2016 The latest visit from the liaison nurse showed that my lung function has increased to 75%. Hurrah, hurrah, hurrah!! I’m determined to keep it up. It’s difficult at the moment because as we are now in summer holiday season, I’m juggling holidays (not mine) with an ever increasing work load […]

16 June 2016 to 15 July 2016 I have had an interesting few weeks. My daughter has developed a strong America accent. She’s always been very good at mimicking the American children on YouTube.

The night before we flew she cried all night. I know this because I was up with her, cuddling her, rocking […]

1 – 15 May 2016 – Genuine, open laughter The wonder of the month immediately following IV antibiotics; uninterrupted sleep, the ability to climb stairs, to hold a phone conversation without littering it with “excuse me” and “hold that thought”. I can laugh, genuinely, openly laugh without having to stifle it in fear of losing […]

Monday 7 March – We Forgot the Codding Potty! So much for the week of training. Ten minutes on the phone with Little Sis and she’s offered to join us a day early and make a potty purchasing pit stop. We try H on the toilet but it isn’t working. H is so small that […]

1 – 5 March 2016 – Argh! Why does a five day break cause so much extra work? I’m only taking four days away from the office.  I wouldn’t have been there on Friday anyway.  The run up to a holiday is so stressful that you actually question why you booked the holiday in the […]

Saturday 20 February 2016 We have a super new alarm system, very secure and easy to use. Like every alarm system when we leave we have an exact number of seconds to leave and secure the house before the alarm is triggered. Today it was easy; H couldn’t wait to get into the car with […]
