Jeremiah's special award
Malachi has a cold. Which means he is puking a lot. I rang Nicola's secretary to see if he needs his medication increasing again or if we should wait it out. I put him on the scales at the children's centre today when we were in for the baby group and he was 7.4kg so still following the line between the 2nd and 9th centile.
I had another attempt at getting my blood taken on friday. It was not a success. I have to make an appointment at the dr surgery for another go.
Tomorrow Isaac has an appointment with surgical orthotics to be fitted for new piedro boots. I was chatting to another mum at the school gates today and she said that if I'm ever stuck at the hospital she is happy to pick up Jeremiah from school for me. It's so hard to make friends with people when you see them most days but only for 5 minutes or so. I feel like I'm getting there now though.
Two more weeks until half term. And the tumble dryer man is coming! I'm very excited which is a bit sad really.
