This n' that n' the other

Chatterbox has been poorly all week and it's been SATs week (National Curriculum Assessment in England).  Poor little one, although Mon-Thurs she wasn't too bad, just a sore throat and cold.  She managed school up until Thursday and then had Friday off school, fortunately the tests had finished.  She hasn't any infection, just a virus according to our doctor.  She was quite poorly this morning with a bit of a fever and tummy ache, but as the day went on she was much better.

Hubs and I went out last night for our bi-monthly date-night, but we'd not been out an hour when we had a phone call from Hubs' Dad to say Squidge thought she'd swallowed something and was quite upset.  So we had to rush back.  She's been OK though, we still aren't sure what she thinks she swallowed, she had the tail of a pot-cat in her mouth.  Nothing had come off the tail but she was convinced something was in her throat.  She has a cold so maybe her throat was irritated.  So we kept checking on her, it seemed to pass and she's fine today.  A mystery.

Hubs has been out all day today at an event in a large local church. The event is all about worship music and leading worship in church.  Hubs is Music Group Leader at our church and he wanted some ideas and inspiration.  He went with his Mom, she too occasionally leads music at her own church.  The girls and I met up with them for tea this evening as Chatterbox was feeling so much better.  They seem to be having a great time, Hubs is still there, it doesn't finish until about 10 pm.

Well, that's it.  I nearly wrote that it is Pentecost tomorrow, but it isn't, that's next Sunday. Do you celebrate Pentecost or Whitsun at your church?


  1. I'm really sorry to hear that Chatterbox has been ill, but I'm glad that she seems to be feeling better. :o)

    1. Thank you! She is much better, I'm hoping she'll get a good night's sleep tonight. x

  2. What a tough week for Chatterbox - but it sounds like she was quite the trooper!!

    Squidge's incident sounds like something I could imagine with C!!

    We do celebrate Pentecost not in a big way but it is recognized.

    1. It was a bit of a difficult week for Chatterbox, she was rather grumpy too - no surprise as not only was she poorly but she had to be in school an hour earlier than usual. I'm hoping that they will have a more relaxed week at school this week. She's much better now too.
