Our theme for the latest DT layouts at Scrapbook Station was "felt". I took my inspiration from this bag:
And created this layout.
"It's late April. Finally the rain has arrived. Jamie wakes early in the mornings now, startled by the noise of rain thundering on our iron roof. The walks that have become so much of our daily routine now must be squeezed in between showers. But that's all OK. The drought has broken! The entire country has been on water restrictions all Summer and dams and reservoirs are at an all time low. The coutryside really needs this soaking. Farmers the country over have been praying for this rain. And for me, it's the perfect excuse to pull out all my scarves and beanies and welcome in the Winter"
See the inspiration?
We all have colds. I called the doctor out for Jamie tonight. I tried to get him in to see a doctor today to no avail. Isn't the health system shocking?
Our usual medical clinic had a computer glitch and couldn't book us in for an appointment. All they could suggest was to "come and wait in the clinic and we'll try to fit you in as soon as we can".
The next clinic I rang wasn't taking new patients.
The next clinic was engaged and I couldn't get through.
The next one couldn't see Jamie until next Monday.
The final one couldn't offer us an appointment but we could "come in after 4pm and a doctor will see you sometime between 4 and 6pm".
In the end I called the after hours home doctor service. We waited in the comfort of our own home, watching Big Brother, lol. He bulk billed even. I don't think I'll bother with clinics anymore!!!!
Anyway, it turns out that Jamie has a bilateral ear infection (both ears), a throat infection and a chest infection. He can't go to childcare for the next two days. So there go my plans for work tomorrow. My poor boss. I think she'll run out of patience with me soon. Sigh.
And we have someone coming to have another look at the house tomorrow lunchtime, so it's not even like we can sit around the house all day feeling miserable.
Oh dear. I don't much like being a working mum, lol.
Take care. Talk soon.
