    Washing up can wait, even Supergran needs to sleep!
    It's not difficult!

    Sitting in A & E with Dgd, yet again.
    Tripped up by another lad from school yesterday. Swollen foot.
    It was 10.30 before I actually got to bed in the end, and I was up to dgs2 once more before the 5.15 wide awake time!
    I tried to get him to go back to sleep but he wasn't having any of it.
    Dgs1 woke at 7am
    Took him to Breakfast Club for 7.45 and then home to sort out Dgd.
    I have had to message the two customers who were coming in today.
    DS will have to take Dgs2 with him to a meeting he has now, and walk as I have my car, and his is out of action.
    Keeping calm, and trying to juggle my day.
    Luckily the car parking takes contactless so I could use my Pingit fob.
    Also looking relatively quiet in here, which is good.
    Not sure if I will manage to get caught up with my todo list though.
    When I die I will know that I have lived, loved, mattered and made a difference, even if in a small way.

    Possible damage to growth plate in foot, so fracture clinic tomorrow.
    Back to school with letter of proof we were at hospital. Apparently have to have a meeting with them next week. Because Dgd is a LAC then hospital are obliged to tell safeguarding team as she's been to hospital 6 times in last two years.
    Another load of social Inquisitions on their way then!

    I am shattered, just told a customer sorry I am off to bed as she just rang me about repairs and coming now!
    So about to turn mobile phone off too.
    Me first, or I won't be able to do everything else.

    I managed some rest, but several people knocked the front door and DS said they would have to come back another time. Non of them were booked in, so it looks like I will have to advertise that it is appointment only or I will be bothered on my days off. I had tried to say by appointment only for a while but several people have chanced it and just turned up in the garden. I have to make sure that the gate is locked when I am not out there. I think I will have to get the sign rewritten to say about that.
    One child in bed, just waiting for him to settle down before I take the other one up. Fingers crossed he will sleep soon.
    I want to go for a bath.

    Well I managed a bath with bubbles, candles and tea.
    Then I sat in my now favourite corner with a pint of water, my bottles with little coloured lights, smooth music on google hub and my fleece blanket while I wrote my diary.
    I missed one of the times dgs2 woke but his Dad was home and did it.
    However he has been awake since 4.50 this morning.
    I tried to get him to settle but he just got louder and louder so I brought him to my room and he has been sitting in my corner with the google, and I sort of nodded off, that sort of rest where your eyes are shut but you can still hear what is happening around you.
    At 7 dgs1 joined us and climbed into bed beside me with my other iPhone.
    It is Daddy's Birthday today, so we are about to go down for breakfast and wake him. I am hungry so these lads must be too.
    I have to wake Dgd so we can leave for her hospital appointment in an hour.
    So time to make a move.

    Poor Gd, this is a complication that neither of you need! Was the 'trip' that caused the injury malicious, or just one of those things? I hope the hospital appointment goes/went well.

    Yes, making 'appointments only' clear does sounds like a good idea, but I expect some people will still chance their luck.

    I hope that Ds enjoys his birthday.

    Hope all goes well for DGD hugs x
    I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer.
    Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
    I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over and through me. When it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
    When the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

    Just as we were leaving for the hospital another knock at the door with a job that I had to say sorry I am on my way out you will have to call for an appointment. I think I may have to put a note on my front door as well as the pages etc

    We're sitting here waiting for the doctor, 30 minutes late so far.
    Hope DS wasn't planning on going anywhere as I just found his house keys in my handbag! Oops.
