it just went past in a whirl!
There were the usual goings on...
|Benny's quarry game|
Getting hair cuts: This was Joa's first ever hair cut at a barbers. He asked the lady, 'Please can you cut my hair in a spike?' She tried her very best but even with 2 loads of extra-strong hair gel his hair wouldn't stay in a spike for more than a second. I guess the curl is too strong!
But that is not all... the real reason for the crazy busy fleeting past of October are these 3 things:
1. Garry officially moved in here Under Rainbows. Although he has been staying here unofficially for several months we made it official and moved all of his things here (including several...hundred...Elvis' or Elvi I think is the plural?!) So that was a lot of sorting and cleaning and moving. We piled everything into this house thinking we would have weeks to sort it all out and then...
2. He was taken into hospital in agony. Poor thing had a prolapsed disc in his neck giving him such severe pain that the hospital could do nothing for him to control the pain resulting in surgery after 10 days in A&E. That was a difficult time for us all, worrying and stressful and very, very tiring, but there was a very special moment in the middle of it....
We are so excited and happy. I am now 16 weeks. The nausea has passed thank goodness and that awful hit-by-a-truck tiredness has gone too replaced with general pregnancy tiredness.
Garry's operation was successful and he is now on the long road to recovery.
Sp, now we are up-to-date and all of that crazy stuff is out of the way perhaps I can get back into a better rhythm again and I hope this will give me more time to blog, to record and share with you this very special time.
