Oh dear what a wierd day - there isn't a wierd in mood so I couldn't put that at top of this entry!
Well the day started good - I went into town and I bought myself some lovely walking shoes for when I'm in New York - don't laugh at me you trendy peeps!!! (I'm thinking of Diama cringing at me wearing naff boots LOL). I need comfort!!! LOL I will wear good jeans with them though I promise!! They look kinda cool anyway!! They were reduced from £70.00 down to £24.99!!! Also got a really nice cardi!! LOL now Im really sounding dowdy aint I!!!! But it cheered me up!!!
Then I went into work to see how everyone was. The park is closed for the winter. I asked last week if they needed me to work over the winter - we thoroughly clean the lodges - my boss said no because I can't do every week because of college. Anyway, I went in this morning and one person is off sick and one has decided to take a holdiay now!! So guess what they desparately need me!! So I agreed - how am I gonna fit it in with college!!!! So I'm working tomorrow and Friday. Don't know when I can do next week as Im supposed to be in college everyday next week!
Then I took my friend to Wilmington (about half hour drive away) to pick up her new van - it's lovely and will be a great help for her catering business!! My car started playing up the gear kept sticking!!! Dont want that to go wrong now!!!
When I got home I had a phone call from the University College Hospital in London. Bit of a long story! My youngest Joe is on Growth Hormone replacement and last year had tests to see if he was going into puberty ok and all is fine with him. I took my eldest, Sam, who is now 13 up with me when I took Joe for his results as I was concerned that he hasnt grown for a while! Anyway, it seems that he is about two years behind with his growth and development. When the hospital rang today to say I have an appointment on 9th February and have to be in the ward by 8.00am so he can have tests all I could remember was that when Joe had them tests at the age of 2 and a half he went into a diabetic coma!!! So I cried and cried!!! I dont want Sam to go through that!!!!! Anyway, the doctor who does the tests rang me to explain the procedure - he said that the tests are different now - they don't let the patient get below 3 on blood sugar levels and they check them regularly and infact they dont even do tests like that on children under 8 anymore! So it was obviously dangerous when Joe had it done. Anyway, I feel better now but blimey do you remember last year when I was trying to do my art I was up and down to London with Joe now I'm going to be up and down with Sam!!!! Dont know how I will cope!! Not sure I can do this degree!! Can I??? I can't think straight.
I learnt today too that a very very talented and gifted and wonderful artist died on Sunday - his name was John Cole and I worked with him in the summer when we had an art workshop for children with learning disabilities - I am very glad that I had a chance to work with such a wonderful person - I am very saddened at his sudden death and feel for his partner so so much. I just can't believe it!
Just goes to show you never ever know what is going to happen!!!
Love to you all
