May catch up

Well here's the last few weeks in pictures! 

I was a bridesmaid at my bestfriends wedding (im far right). It was a lovely day and the bride was stunning (although a touch of the bridezilla appeared, but i'll forgive her for that ;-) )

We had some truely glorious super hot weather for a whole week. Glasgow was the hottest place in the UK one day. That doesn't happen often!

I have become an Independent Usborne Organiser and will be selling Usborne children's books. I love Usborne books, they're fab. Their sticker books are some of my favourites. Whilst on this note, if you live in the Inverclyde, Renfrewshire, North Ayrshire vicinity and would like to host an Usborne book party for your friends, im your girl! Its good fun and there are good benefits for you, the host! 

So that's about all for now. I'll be back soon to share a proud mum moment i had today but im too tired to write about now!

Stitching for Aaron

How about that? Some stitching for my stitching blog! I've started Aarons birth sampler; a chart from The Historical Sampler Company. It is such an easy stitch which is great for the evenings when im too tired to do anything but sit on the coach and zone out to another Grey's Anatomy episode. I dont even have to look at the chart much - perfect :-)

Thanks for the comments re. Caleb, he seems better now. Hoping for a healthy week! We're off to London on Friday for one of my best friends wedding and I am a bridesmaid! Exciting! My bridesmaid dress is gorgeous!

I was touched to read your comments on my last post regarding Caleb, thank-you all so much. Unfortunately we are in the midst of another infection. The paediatrician decided he was fine to go back to his old meds on Thursday and boy, was she wrong. Saturday we were back to square 1; high temperature, sore back, hurts to pee etc etc. Its been pretty stressful. So far, we have managed to avoid the hospital although there has been a trip to the emergency doctor and a few calls to NHS24 which, by the way, is an amazing service. For all the grumbles you hear about our health service, i think it is amazing that we have it, and for free. When you hear about people in other countries who cannot get serious health conditions treated because they cant afford it, it makes me truely grateful to live here!

On top of all that we had a few days of Aaron hitting high temperatures after his immunisations. My gosh, parenting is so hard at times, not to mention stressful, exhausting, overwhelming and worrying too. I just hate to see them sick, it makes me feel very helpless.

Anyway, i need to finish on a more cheerier note. Im sitting here looking out into the garden and here are my lovely potted plants :-) I cannot wait to get things actually planted in the garden but we're waiting on the developers putting drainage in and re-turfing it.
