Screams in the night and even less sleep than usual

I did not manage to recap on our last weekend as it’s been a bit of a blur, so before this one finishes I should write something about the one I missed.  It was very busy, eldest had a sleepover and we all went to see an evening showing of a pantomime.  It was an amateur performance but nonetheless very well received by the boys, they had a picture with a couple of their favourite actors after the show and would not stop talking about one in particular, it was TIM this and TIM that.  They wanted him to be there older brother or even be made into a LEGO Dimensions figure (high praise indeed!).

Then on returning home the older boys did not go to sleep till 11:30pm, fuelled on excitement and sugary sweets… fortunately we managed to convince youngest to nod off at 10pm, as he really needs his sleep!  Even that was far too late for him, but as a one off now and then its okay but we still know about it the next day!

The following morning it was a quick visit to the park then sleepover friend returned home, before hubbie and I headed off to take our dog to flyball.  She is not overly keen on other dogs, perhaps that is being too generous, she outright dislikes every unknown dog she meets is probably more accurate!  But we are taking her to these lessons in the vague hope she will by being in the same room as other dogs start to realise that they are not all scary and make some friends!  That weekend saw some progress, as she was keen to socialise with one of the dogs she has now met three times.  That dog has a lovely temperament so hopefully will help our dog see sense, she certainly looked happier wagging her tail more.

After flyball hubbie and I prepared for friends arriving for dinner and board games.  It was a successful evening, hubbie’s cake was well received and everyone had an enjoyable time.  I love catching up with the girls, I want to focus on the friends that mean the most rather than trying to get along with everyone.

By the following evening I was ready to unwind, catch up on sleep but youngest bless him had other ideas.  Come 1 am in the morning we were awoken to all mighty screaming, it was very scary, youngest was complaining of neck pains so I went into full on panic mode, checking for a rash, aversion to lights, a temperature, basically any change at all that would allude to anything more sinister.

Eventually we managed to settle him but still kept a close eye on him through the night, in case any other symptoms developed!  The following day the lovely doctor said he would be better in a couple of days, his signs were all good he had just in all probability twisted his neck funny in the night!  Phew.

My lovely littlest was a poorly boy last night but on the mend thankfully x

  6. Your cake looks great and I think the philosophy to focus on great friends rather than tons of friends is a really good one. Mich x
