Gratitude Journal #33

Parties to Keep the Kids Amused
At the weekend, both the girls had parties! They've been bickering quite a bit recently so it was a welcome break for each of them.  E's was at the local farm and T's was a disco party in the village hall.  

T's Teacher
T has been particularly challenging over the last couple of weeks so I made the decision to speak to her teacher, Mrs T. I cannot fault Mrs T, she goes above and beyond for her class and I will always be grateful for the help she gives us.  She has spoken to T for us and is working with us to make a plan of action, despite the issues taking place at home rather than in school. 

An Afternoon at the Beach
Sunday saw us pack the girls bikes into the car and head to Hunstanton.  The girls loved being out on their bikes and Buddy loved being to chase after them, although not quite so much as being able to bark at every dog he saw.  They did really well on their bikes, normally we have to tell them off for messing about but they were good and we followed it up with taking them to McDonalds for their dinner, which was bloomin' amazing as it meant I I didn't have to faff about with their dinners when we got in! 

I'm grateful to have got my pre-op over and done with.  The staff were all friendly and kind and despite feeling a little overwhelmed after 2 hours there, I feel like I know what to expect now. 

Asthma Check
I've started this week with an asthma check to see if the cough I've had since October (ish) is asthmatic. Apparently not, my lung function is above average for someone of my build, which is good to know.  So I'm not asthmatic anymore (yay!) but on the flip side, it does now mean I have to see the Dr again to see what course of action she wants to take.  There's always something, isn't there?!


  1. Glad the cough wasn't sinister - I always worry now! Take care! #TwinklyTuesday
