My week -17/02/2019

Oh what a week it’s been! Let’s start from the beginning..

Monday – My 10 year old son had his puberty talk! If you haven’t read my previous post about this you can do so here. As expected, the talk didn’t go as planned but for a very different reason… He fainted in class! Whilst sitting in his chair, at his desk waiting for this life changing lesson to take place, he blacked out and fell to the floor hitting his head on the way down. A very panicked receptionist called me to come ASAP, panicking me at the same time. The ambulance was already there when I arrived and had him checked out. They asked for me to take him straight to his doctor and seek advise, which I did. It turns out he has an acute version of vertigo which has probably stemmed from an ear infection so the treatment was warm olive oil in his ears. I was also told to take him for blood tests the following morning just incase there were any other issues…

Tuesday – Took my son for a blood test! A fasting blood test! Not the easiest thing to do with a young child! The magic cream was applied to numb both arms in preparation of the dreaded needle but then we had to wait an hour for the cream to be ready. An hour waiting for a needle is like being on death row for a child, a child who thinks the process could actually kill him! So it was an hour of trying to keep him calm, keep his mind off food and keep him busy whilst not falling asleep myself. But he was very brave when it finally came around, maybe it was the promise of a happy meal after that persuaded him.

Wednesday and Thursday were busy with kid’s school meetings. I had a parent workshop which was fun, a chance to go in and be creative and messy with the kids. I also had parents evenings for 2 of the boys. EXHAUSTING! But both boys are doing well at school, the youngest is said to be borderline average and the middle son is above average in all subjects, sounds good to me.

And finally Friday – spent the morning grocery shopping, food doesn’t last in my house come the weekends! And the afternoon I sat in peace and quiet, enjoying the serenity of calmness before next week as it’s school holidays!

Saturday finished the week of brilliantly as we had our first barbecue of the year! A perfect ending to another crazy week.

I’m looking forward to not having to do the school runs next week, which also means a lie in! YEAH! I’m also hoping the weather is good so we can have some days out…


Lets recap with my highlight and low point of the week:

Highlight: Sunny days are making me feel so much better and having a barbecue

Low point: Has to be the fainting episode, I’m hoping he’s on the mend and it won’t happen again…

I hope you’ve all had a good week. Please share with me your highlight or low point of the week by leaving a comment below…

Take care of yourselves…

Suki… X!

  3. A Feb BBQ almost unreal. Hopefully not the last one of the year…. Hope the fainting is sorted real soon. Low point Def pre Valentine memories. High point Def sonโ€™s rather dismissive and vitriolic rant about the commercial nature of Valentineโ€™s Day…

      I think Valentine’s is too commercialised as well! Love should be shown everyday… I hope this week is a better week for you & your son… โค

    That’s not a good way to start the week. I hope your son is feeling a lot better now.

    Now you mention it, it is warm enough to get the barbecue out. We should do the same ๐Ÿ™‚

    The fainting sounds so terrifying. I have young kids and would not have been able to be calm. Iโ€™m glad the tests werenโ€™t horrible for him. I hope this next week is much better.
