Day 134 – Admiral Young Driver Lessons– My eldest got to drive a car with Admiral Young Driver. At only 10 she got her first experience of driving one! You can read about it here and video is up and can be seen – Admiral Young Driver Lessons.
Day 135 – A quiet day. Am slightly addicted to the Sensations Poppadoms.
Day 136 – Took Dad for his blood test in the morning. He has to have some before he sees his consultant so she can she whats happening and if things are going wrong again. Feeling a bit down in general and Rosie kept me company in the evening. She gets as close as she can to me when I am on the sofa. But still not a lap cat.
Day 137 – Non stop rain today. Made us all feel a bit deflated and miserable. Even Bee was a bit quiet!
Day 138 – 9am appointment with Dad’s consultant. She herself arrived at 9am and didn’t get seen until around 9.30. It seems Dad’s condition is stable….well as stable as can be considering his liver isn’t functioning well at all. She said it should be OK to have the cataracts operation but to try to avoid it for as long as we can…..because we don’t want to risk infections as it is infections that cause Dad’s confusion to come back and he ends up hospitalised as his body can’t fight it. He was also due to have a colonoscopy next week but after checking his results she cancelled it as she didn’t want to put him through it unnecessarily as its pretty invasive. All we can do is keep an eye on him and as soon as any signs of confusion show to get him some antibiotics ASAP and to hospital if it’s bad.
Ramadan arrives next week and I had the ‘brilliant’ idea of making 30 lanterns with card to countdown to Eid. So the evening was spent completing that project.
Day 139 – Finally completed the countdown calendar. Now just have to fill it with sweets and anything else I find when go shopping…ready for them to open each day of Ramadan. Bee insisted on making sure we had enough…even though she can’t actually count to 30 yet!
Day 140 – There was a party at the mosque to welcome Ramadan which starts next Friday or Saturday. Bee loved it! They did some crafts, story telling, pass the parcel and had some food.
Ramadan Mubarak to you and your family, hope you enjoyed making the crafts, none for me this year as I’m not teaching but I may have a go at a few things for the home, hope your father is as comfortable as he can be
The Young Driver lessons are so much fun! It’s good to hear that your dad is stable now. Love that Bee is keeping a careful eye on the sweets in the calendar 🙂

Ohh! I have heard about the Young Driver thing. It sounds such a great experience for children.
I’m glad your dad is pretty stable at the moment. I hope it continues. x

laughed at her counting enough for you, nice that they want to help.
Glad you are getting advice you are happy with from the consultant.
The rain was much needed I have to say.
