Brave Girls!

Claire had had an appointment through to go and have her MMR booster this afternoon. When she had her first MMR jab they only did it once but they've now decided that those people need to have a booster shot. Emily has never had the MMR (I wouldn't let her have it, with all the controversy around the time she was due to have it). Anyway, Emily came with me and I chatted to the nurse about her getting vacinated now because she had decided she wanted to get it done. What we didn't expect was for the nurse to say "Ok, let's do it today!". Yup, both girls had MMR vacines today! They were very brave but said it was quite painful and their arms were sore afterwards. However, by the time Emily went up to bed she said it wasn't so sore anymore and she didn't want any paracetamol - so that's good!
Anyone who knows me, knows I don't do sympathy very well. I'm one of those Mum's who laughs when the children fall over (unless it's serious!). My children all know if they want sympathy, they go to Dad. So, what was the first thing we did when we got back from the Doctors .... take photos!! I know that's probably not what the girls wanted (hence the hamming for the camera ;oP ) but here is one for the blog (photo isn't brilliant as I had to use flash inside!)
Emily has to go back for her booster shot in January and, in the meantime, I'm hoping they don't get any side effects. xx

Week 3 Sketch 3 RWC

After Emily left for school this morning I had to get stuck in and do this final layout for the Design Your Life week. The colours we were given this week were Red, Lime Green, White and Grey. Last night I had printed out the photos I thought I could use for it and I am really happy with the way it turned out. I've always liked these photos of Hugh on his 16th birthday and now I've finally got to use them.I was slightly late picking Mum up to go shopping but I'm so glad I got it finished. The green isn't showing up properly in this photo but you can get the idea. Journalling reads: You asked for a BMX for your 16th birthday and got to choose which one you wanted. You enjoyed showing it to Max and Faith when they came down from London for your birthday. It wasn’t long before you wanted to show them what your bike could do and had them all coming down the driveway at the front of the house. The others made do with skateboards but you were out front on your BMX. Good times! Photos 06/2004 /Journaling 10/2008 xx
