    Hi WB Ouch to the burn. Must be pretty bad for an A&E visit

    Hope you've had a nice day in the garden. In years gone by the padding pool would have been out by now but such things aren't requested any more. At least I don't have to sort arguments out about who splashed who xx

    Thank you Tea I'll live plenty antibiotics and things and time to heal it'll be fine

    Weather has been so nice. We haven't been anywhere but the smalls played in the back garden. I haven't done very much other than the usual.

    Hope you've had a good day

    Get well soon hun - sounds painful and that's without all the inconvenience these things seem to cause.

    Ooh, that sounds nasty WB. Playing in the garden sounds good to me. We sailed home today but the traffic was queuing from Chorley going the other way Looking forward to spending some time in my garden as well this weekend. xx

    I'm always burning myself on the iron and oven, those burns are pretty painful so a burn that involves a visit to A&E must be extremely sore. Hope it heals quickly. Look after yourself and enjoy the lovely weather this weekend xx

    Sorry you burnt yourself, it must be painful. I hope it heals up soon. I'm always burning myself on the oven and iron like SA!

    I hope you and the DC have had a lovely day in the garden enjoying the sunshine .

    Evening.

    Thanks all for stopping in and leaving replies. I haven't really been online as my internet is going to run out

    Been and had my dressings changed and the smalls have played outside. Haven't got half as much done as I wanted to but I'll catch up eventually. Dosed up on painkillers and the antibiotics make me feel awful.

    Hope you've all had a lovely Easter

    Spent the last change in the bank on some juice

    The burns must be pretty bad to have to have them dressed and need painkillers and antibiotics. How on earth did it happen? Hope they heal soon anyway xx

    I'm sorry to hear about your hand. I hope it heals quickly and that you got to eat some chocolate to help in the restorative process!


    I hope the smalls had a visit from the Easter Bunny as well.

    Morning

    Yeah Tea everyday for dressings changed for now. Hoping it will go to less as soon as possible. The smalls aren't impressed with the walk It was hot oil SA.

    Today's plans are to go to the hospital appointment. Then come back and get everything ready for school. I think it's done but will double check. The sun is still shining so I'm sure we will get outside at some point.

    Hope you all have a lovely Monday

    Morning WB That's a nuisance having to go every day but better to do it than it get infected.

    We're all ready for back to school tomorrow as well. It's summer uniform now which is a polo shirt instead of shirt and tie so that'll save a few minutes every morning Was working out last night there's only 9 days before Bank Hol, then only 14 before the May half term. Are these kids ever at school

    Hope you all have a lovely day and enjoy the weather. It's been gorgeous for a school holiday hasn't it. xx
