Well, we’re still all coldy (CU-1 coughing in the middle of the night via monitor is just sooo pitiful sounding) and Nick and I are still at each other’s throats, but we had lovely day yesterday. We took a long walk (Esther Ranzen shops in the O2 centre Homebase) and had a good chat which felt really good in the end. Hopefully the new office will be sorted soon and out life will get slightly more back to normal.
Last night CU-1 had very major tooth pain and essentially screamed bloody murder all night. Nick and I took turns squeezing, bouncing and singing until the wee hours. She finally went to sleep after breakfast for her 08:30 nap. Boy, no fun, the worst part is you know she’s hurting but you can’t do anything about it.
On the topic of all night stress and distress, if you’re a young parent and want help, check out NHS Direct (0845 4647). They are fantastic. It works like traditional ‘expert systems’ were supposed to work. Your call is filtered by an initial call-centre handler, you then hang up and a specialist calls you back almost straight away. Very impressive, and publicly funded too:-)
