Fixing up the lad :)

Joshua finally getting an operation to have his abductor longus (I think!). First time we've ever paid for private, but it needed fixing this summer so he can get back to year 2 over in Lake Tahoe. Have to say, the service was amazing :)

The surgeon is awesome ....... here's the link if you're interested :)

I also have a clip that he got me to record when he was high post-op  .... saving that one for the right moment to embarrass him LOL!

April 2016 Roundup

I've started to use Project Life to scrapbook current photographs, in the hope I can do old-fashioned scrapping for the 1,000's of older photos! So here's April's round-up :)

Sports Day

Another year gone already? As always, in awe of the care and dedication that the staff at Ella's special needs school give to all the children. Truly humbling.

AWOL .....

But only 5 weeks instead of 7 months! Been a bit manic - "No really?" I hear you sarcastically ask ;)

In a nutshell:
Had to give up work - update on my lisfranc tab here
Boys are home for a free weeks from America - cannot believe their first year is done!
Joe and Kerrie visited
Sam and Ruby visited
Been to a 21st birthday party
Have 3 fosterlings now - one teen that's been with us since January, and in May 2 little brothers joined us...... so while the boys are visiting we're a family of 8.
Oh - had my gallbladder out - and the main keyhole - well unless he was using the monster keys they had in 'days of yore' it's a very loose description - ouch will suffice :(
Ben's 21st birthday
Have had my biggest order for a few years - bride and 5 bridesmaids!
Did a street art fair
Been seen by my wrist doctor
Put my registration in for childminding
Found a doctor to fix Joshua's groin at last - and not just any old doctor, but an internationally acclaimed one!
Being a lady wot lunches with Bracknell College ladies
Had a filling :( £75 for 20 minutes - I really should have trained to be a dentist .... yeah okay, never going to happen LOL!

So that's bad enough for 5 weeks but to give you a more in depth peep at my life I posted this today on facebook .........."From last Friday to this ....... Picked up Josh & Ben from Heathrow - 1 trip to my foot doctor - 21st birthday party - meal out for Ben's 21st - Josh to hospital in London - 2 x football training - 2 x youth club - 2 x opticians - 3 x dentists - 3 x contact sessions - 1 x doctor - 1 x professional visit - 1 x sports day - first time being a foster panel member! - 1 x court - 1 x IRO visit ,,,,,,,,phew! This not working lark is hard work LOL!"

Euro 2016

Proud of both our heritages :) No divided loyalties yet as England and Italy are not in the same knock-out groups ........ and seeing as England never get passed the knock-outs, there shouldn't be a problem ;)

Wokingham Street Art Festival

In a nutshell, a perfect day :)

Just the right amount of informative emails beforehand, well planned on arrival with a nice goodie bag :) There was an eclectic range of artists showing their work so something for everyone. It was also planned on the same day the town was celebrating the Queen's 90th birthday which I think was a bonus as the town was very busy the whole time. Even the weather didn't let us down to much. All in all a good day, and I hope it becomes an annual event :)
