Phew, another couple of weeks gone by, quite frankly I don't know what I am doing with my time. Taidgh went off to school camp in Albany (400km from home) and I got that call on the first night - your son has had an accident and is currently being stitched at the hospital. We rang the hospital to see how he was and was told he was 'anxious' whilst being administered local anaesthetic, Taidgh's version was 'Mum, I screamed my head off'. Oh well so would you if you needed 7 stitches on your kneecap if it was split to the bone! it all ended well in that he stayed at camp and made the best of it, he still had a great time and spent all his money on presents for us (and a little something for himself).
We also had a wedding to go to on the weekend, a very good friend Becky who got hitched for the second time - had an appropriate song during the service, 'this time there will be love'. It was wonderful and it was the groom who was teary not the bride! Steve is a lovely man and they looked like love sick kittens! I also had to get Lorcan to a birthday party on the same day, a fairy/wizard do and he had a great time dressing up and playing games. The only art I achieved this week was a canvas for the birthday girl who turned five. This was done in 45 minutes and was barely dry upon handing it over. Feeling under the pump now as the past few kids cards I have done included photos and a few have been kept and framed which is a nice compliment but now everyone wants a photo/layout to keep for their child - what have I started? Hope you are all having a great week. Hugs, Carmel xxx
