It's been germ central here for the past couple of weeks. Nipper is very generous with the germs he picks up at nursery. He's had a nasty cough and has sounded like a dog barking! Miss Muffett had a nasty ears, nose and throat lergy and then poor Tiddler went down with a virus which had us at the local hospital for the afternoon. So worrying when they are so tiny (though Tiddler now weighs 13lbs and is moving into age 3 to 6 month clothing already). He's been coughing as if he's a hardened smoker, but as they said at the hospital, "at least it's not swine flu". He's also become quite colicky so we're not getting much sleep (I spoke too soon about him being a quiet baby!)
We had a momentous occasion this week with Miss Muffett turning into a teenager!
She was a bit disappointed not to have 13 candles but since she had a Thornton's toffee cake I think it would have been decimated by so many candles. She could open a shop with the number of presents she got - a benefit of having divorced and re-married parents and so a large extended family! I don't remember much being made of turning 13 when I was a kid. The big birthdays were 18 and 21. My 'big' present was a 'ghetto blaster' and a copy of Thriller on vinyl!
Nothing much else happening here at the moment. My parent's are visiting but the less said about that the better - lol! I could do 'a day in my life' but it would be filled with repetitions of 'fed Tiddler, changed Tiddler, put washing on, made breakfast/lunch/tea' so not very interesting reading! I hope to get a bit of knitting done at some point, but that really is hope over expectation so I won't be holding my breath!
