Let me assure you, we are actually normal! This morning as I write I am sitting here with a thumping headache. I woke up with it. Not very happy. I felt dizzy at work on Thursday and had to go lay down for a while, felt REALLY tired last night and went to bed before everyone else. I think I have a bug. Blocked nose, head hurts if I cough.
Mr O Jnr 1 has been to the doctor twice this week with blocked ears and has to go back on Monday for a second attempt to unblock the left ear. Poor young man, he now has one great ear and one blocked ear. I think that means he can hear half the time! I’d dragged him off to the doctor when I became convinced he was talking loudly because he couldn’t hear properly, not just because he is Mr O’s mini-me!
I’d had my ears syringed as a child, as did my sister and my daughter had grommets, so I recognised the symptoms! In the car on the way he told me he had thought I was joking and got a shock when I arrived home from work early and whisked him on this journey! When we went back yesterday, I took the two younger ones with me just to check, as it only takes two seconds to peer in an ear! They both got they all clear. Mr O Jnr 2 took photos of the procedure wth his iPhone, but I’m not subjecting readers to medical shots – this is not ER, after all!
Miss O 1 had her first trip to an Australian dentist and had a back molar filled. Mr O did that trip, as I was at the doctor with Mr O Jnr 1 at the same time. I gather there were a few tears as Miss O 1 hates needles and of course there was the pain shot involved. It wasn’t all bad – Miss O 1 finally got her first trip on one of our trains!
They were very brave though, facing their first treatments in a strange land. We were very proud of them both!
So we have three “sickies” and three healthy ones today. Mr O has gone off for a driving lesson and I SO wish he had his licence already because I have to say I am not looking forward to driving to the market for the weekly meat shopping. Hanging out the washing will be delegated to Misses O 1 & 2.
Yep, we are normal.
Mr O just got back and………………………… HE DROVE ON THE FREEWAY!!!!!! Woo Hoo!!!
