1. A few weeks ago, I spent 8 hours in Children's Emergency with Harry.
2. Then the other day, my regular babysitter fell off a ladder while she was painting and ended up in hospital - so no more help for me until further notice (btw I hope you're feeling better D.)
3. Last Monday morning Mark flew out to PNG, and on arrival started getting severe abdominal pain. He didn't want to risk needing treatment over there, particularly that he was going to be out in a remote jungle somewhere, so he caught the next plane home. I took him into hospital, where he will remain happily sedated on morphine until the end of the week.
I hope that is the end of our bad luck.
Late last night I realised we were out of bread, and rather than pile four kids into a car first thing in the morning to go to the shops, I decided to make my own which would be nice and fresh for the morning.
I've made this Walnut and Fig loaf lots of times, and it's absolutely delicious. So this morning's breakfast consisted of scrambled eggs with parsley and walnut pesto, toasted slices of walnut and fig bread and OJ - oh and a freshly brewed cappuccino.
We haven't got any plans for today, however the eldest wants to go to China Town to have Peking Duck for lunch - I don't know where he gets it from!
Hope you're all enjoying yourselves on this Public Holiday.
