Well, perhaps not totally typical, but close to it as far as the running around!
First stop of the day was Mr O Jnr 2 at the Orthopaedic Clinic of the Royal Children’s Hospital! Lovely Doctor (and ladies, I DO mean lovely) and great clinic staff. Poor Mr O Jnr 2 had his legs twisted and rotated and stretched and the doctor wrote down a whole lot of angles. Then he suggested we go off for a CAT scan and the hospital very kindly managed to fit us in as we were already there. We have an appointment with a specialist in about six weeks.
In the meantime, Mr O had headed to the doctor himself as he was feeling unwell. Miss O 1 hitched a ride to go earring shopping for her Year 12 Formal. When I arrived back from the hospital I received a call from hubby saying he had dropped Miss O 1 off and she wanted to be picked up again but he was still waiting to see a doctor.
Not a problem, Mum to the rescue and off I dashed to collect Miss O 1. She was a little sad as she had been unable to find earrings she was happy with. Her dress needed statement earrings. In a small shopping centre a stones throw from home there are a couple of small boutiques. I thought they might just have something and I was right! (Phew!!)
Then it was off to the nail salon for matching nails! This was not something Miss O 1 had experienced before and she was being SO careful afterwards not to damage the good work!
Home and time for Mum to wave the magic make-up wand. Finally we had a young woman with sparkling eyes in a sparkling dress. The picture quality is lousy, but with no natural light it was hard to get a good shot.
My day ended with a lovely surprise of a birthday cake and balloons organised by the younger three. Very special they are! It was Mr O Jnr 2′s birthday last week and mine earlier this week and we really haven’t had a chance to celebrate anything!
I thought I’d written quite enough political commentary lately and needed to get back to the core of Love versus Goliath!
