Ho ho hmmm

Excuse my lack of enthusiasm for Christmas this year, but the last month has done me in.
Unexpectedly, our little son was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes, and has really turned everything upsy down town (as our kids say). So now the life I thought we were going to have has been changed a bit, actually quite a lot. We've been told how he will  be able to do everything as always, but I don't really buy it. Me, or some other adult will have to swoop in pretty regularly for the next couple of years (at least) and test his blood glucose, give him jabs...not eat too much...not go berserk at parties....not sneek biscuits...and at the other end of the scale, not try and run around oval as many times as possible, play and play in the pool for hours...what I'm getting at it's not a carefree childhood any more. I'd be really happy to here of anyone who can honestly tell me otherwise.
So as you can tell, it's taken the wheels off my momentum a wee bit.

On the more positive side, he is really well now and his zoom is amazing. We got our boy back. We didn't even know he was going...the T1D crept up very slowly.

Hey, and have a look at this
My daughter's first tapestry, how good is it!! She's just turned 8.
I will get back to my own up dates soon.
