Dont make plans! is the mantra for this week and dont scoff at how well your doing either!. last Friday when I blogged, we were in having a 'platelet' transfusion, and no more than a few minutes after finishing my blog, we were admitted for
the weekend because of a temperature.
I had also made plans.. Kim was coming over for the day and bringing her family. We get to see so few people, that the kids were looking forward to it, especially Georgia, who is pretty much housebound
because of her brother. Kim came anyway and sat in the hospital with me, while the fathers kid wrangled on some forest walk somewhere. It was all fun.
On Sunday afternoon we were released and I stopped at the Warehouse to get a few things. Two
things happened while I was there. Firstly I saw a Kindy Mum, who I used to chat to at the gate a lot. I had planned to go on the kindy commitee and she was a member. As far as I know, Kindy have never told the parents about Joshua, this is painful. Its hard
when I see a kindy parent from a distance, because I wonder if they know? or whether they just think we moved away, or moved kindys. Its like life stopped for me there.
Another thing also tipped me off the side. All the mothers day paraphanalia. its
my first mothers day with Cancer. How these things come and wack you in the belly, I dont know, but they do. I came home had a good cry, (must have been good.... Ted our dog sat beside our bed and Doggy cried!) but then I got up and got on with it.
rest of this week however has been lovely. Ive done all these wondeful, normal things, like baking, making soup, planning dinner rather than throwing it together. Ive even managed serious cleaning... like wiping out cubourds and washing the dustpan brush!
whoever gets time to wash the dustpan brush! and cleaning foodmarks off the couch, I even tidied the DVDs up.
Its funny, we spend so much time worrying about stupid things in life and then when a 'real' crisis hits, my comfort is in the simple, good
food, an ordered home, a cup of tea with someone like the Lovely Ruth, who called in today from Church.
And today, Emma our Nanny helped Joshua give me the biggest buzz. He wrote his name for the first time. My beautiful boy.
