    Hope Mr SA is okay. Could you get him checked over to put your mind at rest?

    I wonder why they even thought substitute cushions and placemats were acceptable? They are so much a matter of taste.

    He seems ok today but will keep an eye on him. At least I know the signs.

    Still not had a NSD. Mr SA phoned me at work to say he wanted a radio for his scooter (!!!!!!). Got him one for £4.99 from Argos which he dissed at first because it was cheap!!! It does the job. Anyway he's decided he likes it now thankfully.

    Then remembered it's DGS birthday in a couple of weeks so bought him a Noah's Ark and animals from Mothercare who had 25% off some toys. I'm sure he'll love it.

    Got my confirmation of new salary through today and will be £4,800 a year better off (before tax, NIC and pension of course). Still can't believe it's happened so fast.

    Happy Friday :)

    It must be so worrying when Mr S has his turns.

    I've got images of him singing along when he's scooting around.

    Exciting times ahead with your new job and wages.
