Me On Monday


It was the weekend of camping, cricket scoring ...and crutches.

Oh. Yes. While the big kids were rushing about, being all official, counting things and putting up tents and frying bacon and conquering climbing towers, our favourite little kid was having to sit down a lot. Because Little E..


...has fractured his foot! Something unpleasant to do with a metal pole, I heard. Didn't sound nice.

It's almost exactly a year since I did the same thing, so we've been texting.

How is your poor foot today? I wrote

Sore,  it came back, in one word. Poor Little E! He's in plaster and has been getting about with the help of a natty pair of yellow crutches. Let's keep our fingers crossed for him: he's due to go on holiday in a couple of weeks.

The rest? It was a jalfrezi eating, fish n chip supper munching, new Game of Thrones DVD watching, whatever Dad wants, Dad gets kind of weekend. And a two trips to the campsite, bathroom basin fixing, lawn mowing, new mattress buying one too, so he put in the hours, we can't deny it. Lucky it was a present giving weekend too, then.

Me? I'm taking a sneaky peek at one of those Father's Day gifts. They think they're being funny, but actually there's some good stuff in here..



Louise, Jo, Deb, Ruth, Barbara, Helena, Eileen, Mary-Lou, Ladkyis, Sheena, Fiona all gave us a wave last week. I'm waving back to all of you, and all of you and wishing us all a good start to the week. Have a great one.

Won no! Poor Little E! Fingers crossed that the plaster can be off in time for his holiday, or there's going to be some very strange tan lines when it is removed! Takes me back to the year we took our son on holiday with his arm in a sling. And the time he had his thumb strapped up. And the time he cut his foot open on the first day ... What is it with boys and holidays?!

Barbara Eads said...

I feel so bad for Little E---a broken foot right at the beginning of summer! That's just not right! I hope he heals quickly so he can enjoy the pool soon!

Ali said...

Poor Little E, hope he is ok and not in tooo much pain. Similar things going on here - late to the party (as always!!) but first two episodes of season 1 game of thrones watched at last!! And a new mattress bought too!! Enjoy the rest of your week :-) xx

Gail said...

Oh poor Little E. Hope the pain is gone quickly and he's on the mend. Interesting book there, I'll have to keep it in mind for John's birthday. :)

Eileen T said...

Poor thing, I hope he heals quickly. It doesn't seem that a year has passed already since we were reading about your mishap.

Jo said...

Poor Little E, I hope he's ok for his holiday x

Julie Kirk said...

I love the sound of the pair of you sharing your injury stories! Wishing Litte E a speedy recovery.

As I've skipped lunch today [don't tell my Mam] the idea of your Jalfrezi/fish+chips is rather tormenting me right now ... I'll best make a start on tea. Soon!!

I hope this week treats you well xx

Susanne said...

Oh dear, I hope Little E mends well and soon. Weekend sounds like it was a good one. Now I'm off to research jalfrezi.

Cheri said...

Hope little E heals quickly! That book looks great... has me wondering if they make one for the iPhone. I know I have not even begun to tap its potential...

Nathalie said...

I haven't been around blogs much lately but it is always a pleasure to stop by here and get a Monday update :) Poor Little E... sounds like his sense of humour took a hit with this... Wishing him a speedy recovery!

Jennifer Shaw said...

Oh poor Little E. That's no fun for summer... a hot itchy cast. :( Hope he gets better soon and is out of it quickly. Hugs from me. :) Keep us updated.

Ruth said...

I tried commenting from my phone earlier, but Blogger ate it! Poor Little E, I hope he's fully mobile in time for his holiday. And the book iPad for Seniors? That has my name written all over it!

Ladkyis said...

Claire said...

Certainly sounds like you've been busy, I'm tired from just reading your list, hope Little E gets better very soon.

JO SOWERBY said...

jO XXXX

Karen said...

Poor Little E; hope the pain is short-lived and he learns to get around on those crutches! I'd be interested in that book, as well.

Louise said...

Wishing Little E well....poor little mite. Hope he's not too uncomfortable. Had to smile at the new book - i could do with a read!

alexa said...

Now there's a great book :). It looks larger in size than usual - don't tell me it's in large print too! Oh, that's tough for little E (and his parents - what a fright). Warmest good wishes all round ...

Deb @ PaperTurtle said...

Poor little E! :o( (Little E isn't looking so little anymore!) Love the photo of you this week behind that giant book. LOL

Maggie said...

Oh dear poor Little E. I hope it mends soon. Funny how they like to buy joke presents for their dads. Emma bought Brian a nice wooden box with a hearing aids label for Brian. I confess I bought an IPad for beginners book when I first had an iPad. It was very useful!

KraftyKaren said...

Poor Little E - hope he gets well soon. Looks like you have had a great weekend, hope you have a good week x Waving back at you!!

Hope poor E is mended soon. That book looks as if it could be quite good!

Oh, I do hope Little E heals quickly! Sounds like it was a busy Father's Day weekend for y'all!

Barbara said...

Goodness you had a busy weekend! I hope Little E quickly recovers and is running around soon.

Sandie said...

Poor Little E! I hope he is receiving well. Sounds like you had a good Fathers Day weekend and I had to laugh at the size of that iPad book!
