Productive day

Good news is, that Steven is fine, yesterday we had hospital at nine, got there at 8.50 and as we walked into reception, saw Laura (the lady we were going to see) she said she already had Stevens notes, and he had been booked in, as they heard him coming from the car park, yep he is his normal happy self again, in fact I think even louder, LOL.

Had a good visit, it was his boots/trainer 3 monthly check up, I asked if his feet has stopped growing as I was hoping to buy him an extra pair of boots and trainers, as when his ones have to be re-healed, which seems to be every couple of months, it leaves him with only one pair and if they get wet, we've had it.

Was told as he is only 16, probably not, (even though he is in a size 12 already, Clive is only a 10). But she did say as he had not had any new ones lately she would order him another pair, so I chose the boots, as they have to be specially made for him. Also left his old boots as they needed re-healing, lets hope we don't have any rain for the next couple of weeks as he only has his trainers now.



Today Steven went to respite for the day, which you would have thought I would have done the housework and shopping that I did not do last week, oh no, I made the most of the dry weather and using a heat gun scraped the paint off the garage door frame, then managed to white spirit, prime and undercoat it before picking Steven up, in fact not only that, in between the paint drying, did 2 coats of green stain on our picnic bench, well the top and all the bits I could get to, will do the rest tomorrow in between finishing the garage door frame. Am shattered, got aching arms, but in all a very productive day, really feel good, it was nice to get some fresh air, sort something out that needed doing and to do it in peace.


Most people sit and relax when the have a break from their children, but not me, no, I just cannot sit down, always thinking of what needs doing that I cannot do when littlen is around, saying that, it usually makes me feel better.

Maybe one day when the house is up to scratch, then I will sit down and do all the crafty bits I also want to do, but cannot leave lying around when Steven is here..... ah maybe one day
