    Thank you

    Still trying to catch up with everyone. Slowly

    Not a NSD again today. Calpol and juice. I also should have topped up the gas and electric but forgot I should have done it Friday Will remember tomorrow.

    Smalls should be back at school tomorrow but DS is unwell and so is youngest.

    We had a lovely Roast today and have just pottered. F1 was great to watch, although the pit incident was scary. Good race otherwise though.

    My dad was watching F1 today , wondered if you would be watching also.

    Hope the smalls make it to school tomorrow so you can catch up in peace .

    At least the weather felt a bit spring like today, Hope you get a good night with DS and youngest being a bit off colour.

    I always find Bahrain a bit samey like flat but it was good today, not what I expected at all. I'm a through and through Lewis fan and his penalty had me dissapointed before it even started! but it wasn't as bad as it could have been I guess.

    Even youngest is a fan of watching. Shes the red team supporter though so it's funny when its neck and neck

    I have quite a lot to sort this week and we have some important appointments. Youngest has one tomorrow and it's just typical she's wheezy and coughing I'm hoping they rearrange another review rather than using how she is tomorrow. Fingers crossed.

    It is important that we know where we come from, because if you do not know where you come from, then you do not know where you are, and if you don't know where you are, then you don't know where you are going. If you don't know where you're going, you're probably going wrong.

    Ugh sorry I'm behind again. I hadn't caught up since last time!

    DS has been off school. He is covered in hives (which we think is viral) They came up Sunday and he's still covered head to toe! Swollen mouth and eyes! It's so weird!

    Youngest has another chest infection - quite nasty too more so on her bad side.

    So yeah stress.

    Will hopefully be back with a better post soon
