We’ve got the grommets over and done with. Elena coped with the whole thing admirably – the anesthetic process was pretty horrible (for both of us) but she woke up calmly and was just sucking her thumb by the time I got to her in recovery. Such a brave little one. The specialist reported that it all went well. Hopefully we’ll see an improvement in the ear infection situation – and we’ll be able to go swimming without getting sick each time. Swimming lessons will be a ‘go’ next year! We were all completely shattered by early afternoon, and both Elena and I had good naps. I’m not joking. Afternoon naps are bliss.
In less complicated news, look what was waiting for us when we got home from hospital!
I can see what we’ll be doing for the next little while. I can’t wait. I’m going to open the packages and take the smallest part to a paint shop for advice on the best way to treat it to weather proof it better. We’ll hopefully get the slab extended in the next week or so, and then building can commence.
And, to top off the day, I finally got the buttons sewn onto another cardigan for my etsy shop. Finally! It only took me a week…
We’re having a quiet day at home tomorrow so Elena can continue her recovery. We’re also getting an awning installed over our most westerly facing window…just in time for a spate of 35°C+ (95°F+) days. I think we’ll be glad for it and the cooling.
