We have a confirmed case of Chicken Pox

After a rough night poor Jack was up, showered, lotioned and dressed in time to go off to the docs for 10.30 - despite the powercut that affected the whole street and all the way down to the Spar.

The doc took one look at Jack's belly and agreed that it was Chicken Pox. And that the waxy ears and grumpiness in the run up to the blisters showing was all part of it. I said we were giving him calpol and calamine lotion and he said that was exactly right. His appitie should be back in a few days and in the meantime letting him have the fruit he wants and plenty of drinks is fine. We've also been given some piritin for him which he canhave a night to help sooth any itch and help him sleep.

On the plus side, since the highest concentration on blisters has been inside his nappy, we have been able to get Jack to sit on his potty a lot. We needed him to get some fresh air to those parts to help the blisters heal, and since he's a little tired and clingy, getting him to sit on his potty and read some books has been easy. He's not actually "used" his potty yet, but he's getting the idea that sitting on it without a nappy on and reading a book or playing with a toy is a nice thing to do. So here's hoping somthing good comes out of this.

Romance

Now, we don't really do Romance, Yorkie and I. We're not the sort of couple that goes to posh restraunts, buy hearts and flowers on a whim etc, but last night we had a really sweet night. We didn't really do much that was classically romantic, it was the mood, the feeling in the air, if you know what I mean....?

I cooked us steaks for tea, which is always a winner for Yorkie (his second fav after anything pork) and had the candles lit in the front room. Not that I was going for a romantic atmosphere, I just like to have candles lit on cold dark nights.

We snuggled up on the settee together, watching nothing much on telly, all warm and cozy under a blanket, with the cat curled up o us. We'd been talking a little bit about the wedding and stuff, and about what my doc had said to me about what to do before we start a family. Yorkie's eyes went all soft and sweet, he was hugging me close and saying all the right kind of sweet thinks that I love to hear.

It was one of thos…

Tom wanted a go at cooking this week. And beef kofta curry was his choice! Big helping hand from mum but he worked had and we had fun singing in the kitchen while we cooked. This "teaching life skills" is alright you know

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…
