big week for hubby

Well this is a big week for hubby and me as hubby is going into hospital on Thursday to have the long awaited pain blocks put into his back and leg.
  7 months its already been since he last walked properly on them. Its been a very hard time for him. He is very nervous bless him, which i cant blame him as i didnt even want an eperdural when i had my three kids and luckerly i didnt need them as gas and air was enough. Its a big thing for him, will he be able to feel much after or are we going to have to go again for another set of needles. I do hope that it works 1st time because then he can crack on with the phsyio as even this has been put on hold as they feel they cant do anything.

Anyway also another highligted moment so far this week is that Saturday morning i had the element in the oven go, so quickly over to the electrical shop to get another one, just 5 mins before the shop was due to close, great i thought. Well once home i inserted the new element only to find that it didnt fit properly and that i would now have to wait till monday till be able to get anything done, great i thought a whole weekend with no oven.
Well Monday came along and i phoned them up at 8am to be told that they will now have to order a new element and it will be delivered on Tuesday.
HEY guess what i picked up the new element this afternoon, fitted it and now i have a fully funtional oven once again. You know they do say its the little things that keep you happy.

Anyway i guess i had better go now as i have to do the motherly thing of picking my tribe up from various clubs, so enjoy your night whatever you might be doing xx


  1. Best of luck to hubby for Thursday xx

  2. Wishing him the best of luck x

  3. awww glad to hear your oven is now up and working again what a pain that must have been. Good luck for Thursday i will keep my fingers crossed for you both I can imagine just how you are both feeling. hugs dee x

  4. Wow you are getting fab at the DIY lark. Adi said he had an epidural for his leg and it doesn't hurt too much so try not to worry Andrew.

    Those photos from the nature reserve are fantastic Helen, and that video clip is lovely.

    By the way have you thought of contacting Fordham Garden Centre or Simpsons for donations for your nature reserve stall in exchange for a bit of advertising? Also if you need any childcare help with Bear tomorrow let me know as I am sure Esme would love him to play although she is at pre school from 12.15 - 3.15. xxx

  5. Hope everything went well on Thursday. It's such a long time that your poor hubby has been in pain now. Glad you got your oven sorted out, it's such a pain when something so vital breaks down.
