Brave Little Soldier

Dear Mum,

Took Josh to the doctors this morning for his final two jabs, he was really brave but the second one brought a few tears to his eyes. He took a little while to recover but after the nurse gave him a Milky Way and he’d played in the twisty office chair for a while as I was answering questions about his health and general well being he finally felt well enough to eat the chocolate bar.

In the afternoon we took his bike to the park and he rode a few kilometers. I also took along a wrench and we tried his stabilisers at different heights and also tried removing them completely. He couldn’t quite balance on himself but he finished with them raised as high as they could go so I think he’ll be there before too long.

We stopped off at the bike ramps on the way home as he wanted to try going on them, initially on his bike with my help, then just running up and sliding down on his bum. He loved it.

As you know Deanne got home early as she really wasn’t feeling very well, partly the bad back and partly, I think, the stress of everything that’s going on at the moment. Hopefully the next visit to the physio on Saturday will help.

Gotta go to bed as I need to be up early in the morning to drop Josh off and get to work.

    Hi Dan

    Was lovely chatting this morning – Josh was on fine form….really hope that Deanne makes a recovery from the ear and back very soon.

    The boy appears to be quite bold – a mixture of you and Marc!!!

    Despite a couple of showers at Druce we got a surprising amount of work done even though there were only five of us (me, Carol, Janet, Sue and Bryan). We finished early when heavy rain set in – it was nice to be home at 4pm instead of 5. Sue found a copper alloy ear ring (will send a pic) – a surprisingly modern design of twisted metal.

    Going to watch ‘who do you think you are’ later (Bryan Blessed).

    Hope you have another good day at work

    love to allxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
