I had to cancel as I wouldn't have been able to speak for more than a couple of minutes without collapsing on the floor in a fit of coughing, which doesn't look incredibly professional when teaching the treatment for choking! also my Dr's appointment was 5 minutes before the course started.
hopefully it's just postponed till next week.
Today was the first time Mstr A was truely independant - taking himself to and from school alone. He's really proud of himself, and rightly so. I'm amazingly proud of him too - although I was getting a bit stressed when 3.30 rolled round and there was no sign of him. If we keep this up, he's going to have to take his phone to school! I am not totally immune to all the media scare stories about protecting our kids!
Today was the first day I used the TV as a full time baby sitter. It did work - for a while anyway. Both the girls sat gormlessly in front of CBeebies for well over an hour. They just sat there! I now understand the evil TV can be! Unfortunately, by the time I put LMD down for her nap & tried to grab an hours sleep myself, LMB was well bored of the telly & spent most of the time jumping on me:-)
Today was the first time I took a taxi for a short local journey. Afetr the horrendous journey to the Dr's I walked round to the big Boots next door to fill my prescription. Just to discover that it doesn't have a pharmacy!! After queuing for 10 minutes to be told this, I was almost passing out where I stood & couldn't face trying to find a bus stop, & wait even longer, then walk home, so called a cab. I had a lovely woman driver - I suppose it's quite a good job to work around school hours.
Today was the first time I actually got something out of this blog:-) A big box arrived in the post containing four of these :
These are flourescent snap bands. A present from 3M, who sent me three for my lovely children, and one for a lucky blog reader. It's a clever marketing ploy, but I accepted it because they really are useful products. The size of a ruler when unrolled, the bands are made out of a clever metal & covered in a really bright flourescent plastic. Just tap them onto an arm or leg and they immediately snap around the limb and become a flourescent band, easy to wear & easy to see. They also work well as bicycle clips:-) All my kids think they are great toys, and love wearing them when we're out on the bikes. On the way home last night I saw someone wearing them on his ankle, and even though he was dressed completely in black the car headlights picked him up from miles off - so they really do make you more visable!
So, to win one of your very own snap bands, tell me what "first" did you do today?
