You know how sometimes things seem to be on a roll, when it comes to a run of bad luck. I’ve had one of those months, I think August can just take a hike now. I’m not going to bring you down with the details, ok maybe just a few but hey this is my blog to do with as I please 😉 The pressure has been on this month, with lots of requests (if I haven’t got to your email yet, I am sorry). This crowd of mine has needed my attention, we are the House of Sharts this week.
Four of the kids have had fevers and the sharts this week, so I’ve had them home all week. Yep, things are getting a little twitchy for yours truly. Once again I am jealous of the Husband, for getting to leave this chamber of farts everyday and play with adults. It doesn’t help that at least three of the kids cannot speak without shouting, as I type Georgie is reading to herself on the lounge – I’m sure the neighbors are enjoying storytime too.
Georgie has been particularly unwell this month, having two seizures last week just to add to the mayhem. Seeing your child like this, would crack the toughest nut.
So I’m guessing we’ll be back on the investigation/tests train again, since the last lot didn’t give us anything to go on with. I like to mention that the staff in the triage at Goulburn Hospital are awesome. They had so much on their plates that night, yet they still took the time to explain everything and even bring me sandwiches and tea, as I’d arrived at the hospital starving and not able to go get a drink. She is fine now, she took a few days to come good this time. And still managed to barrack for her Dad and sister at the City2Surf last weekend.
A huge thank you to everyone that support their fundraising effort. They passed their goal of $500, raising $624 for the Autism Advisory and Support Service. Lucy wore her medal for two days afterwards.
That same weekend the news broke about the missing boy Daniel Morcombe, after all these years police finally have an arrest. Their parents asked the nation to wear red on the Monday the suspect was to front court, to show support for Daniel. So we did.
I know this has been a long post, and not my usual stuff but I didn’t want to bombard everyone with each topic in a separate post. And I’m not done, I have one more thing to ask of you.
Do you shop at Coles? If you happen to have some of those sports for schools vouchers around, would you consider sending them my way? Our kids attend a special school, that doesn’t have as many students as a mainstream school would have. So if you have any spare it’d be great if they could be contributed to our little school, so they can get much-needed new equipment. I’ll even send you a stamped envelope to do so, just message me. If you are in the Goulburn area please drop them off with Brian Hill at the Goulburn Post, he has kindly offered to help collect them on my behalf. (Thanks again Brian).
Oh and one last thing. Due to our household mayhem, which I really haven’t filled you all in on here, the draw for the Baby Monitor was delayed. So the winner is….. Veronica Harvey. Thank you to all my new and old followers for clicking on those little boxes, I really do appreciate your support and readship of my blog 🙂
