I rang him this morning at 7AM (fair as I'd been up since 3AM with the wind hitting the house) and could tell he was hungover, he kept claiming he'd been hypnotised by the Hypnotist they'd hired at work. I give up.

My back-up back-up is that the dog looked like she was rapt to go to her boarding kennel, may just join her as we seem to have been dusted by the Bad JuJu Fairy at the moment.

I hope you have a fantastic trip BigDisneyOE. Can't wait to hear all about it

Hope you are well on your way BigDisneyOE.

DD has hurt her arm at school today, currently lying on the couch dosed with Panadol and an ice pack. Claims it hurts to move her arm. Praying she has only jarred it and that it is not broken.

It must be sore because we were meant to be going to the movies after school but she just wanted to come home.

Link please! I spent a good portion of my workday reading a thread titled "does your dog sleep in your bed"
OMG - I know people do it, but I think of my jack russell and all the hair he leaves on my back deck, just gross, he is not even allowed in the house!

I really sympathise Jess,

I find the last week pretty stressy too - all the things that need to be done at home and work before you go, keeping track of all the things that you need to NOT forget to pack etc.

Morning spent at Dr and hospital - fractured elbow and wrist. Plaster from shoulder to hand. Still able to go at this stage but not getting excited until we see another Dr next week.

Oh no! That sucks how did it happen? Must have hit hard to fracture both of them.

The one upside I can see is that your DD will be able to get Disney characters to sign her cast

She fell off some play equipment at school. No pain although I am keeping up the nurofen/panadol every 4hrs.

The Dr said they would give us all the necessary paperwork required for the airline. Only hope they don't change their mind when we go back to get the next cast on Wed/Thur.

I haven't had a cigarette in over 7 years but could've quite easily had one earlier today

Poor little thing! I hope the Doc gives the all clear for travel, and that she gets lots of extra attention from the CMs and Characters.
