An odd week

This week I have inadvertently become an eco- warrior. You see, I managed to catch eye lurgy which has resulted in me not being able to see. This has resulted in an inability to drive, saving a fortune in petrol and helping the environment, just a bit. It also meant that I couldn’t really blog so the laptop hasn’t been turned on much and in fact I cant even see the television clearly. You see where I am going. This also meant that I couldn’t do a big weekly shop and all the knock on things. It’s been an experience, I really value my eyesight being extremely short sighted, now I value it even more.

Last night I went to the Radio Verulam Parent Show Cocktail party where I failed to meet all the people that I thought I would and ended up having cocktails with the wonderful team from St Albans Childrens Centre. It was quite amusing downing cocktails with my Health Visitor and the tutors of my Parenting Boys course, but life does throw strange circumstances at you. I’m expecting first class support from now on!

In my absence the boy decided to kick up a fuss with my friend who he regards as scary. However, it appears to have been a breakthrough night as after a read through of his Ben 10 annual they  he went to bed without a fuss on friendly terms. I cant tell you how pleased this makes me feel, I think it’s really important that children have adults other than their parents who they feel they can talk to.

All in all, quite an odd week!

    Urghh – sounds horrid. I have one very bad lazy eye and am always paranoid something will happen to the other – and yet my grandfather was blind and he was very accepting and active.<br /><br />I&#39;ve been an eco warrior too – commuting to work on the bike (24 miles!) as part of the training. BTW, many thanks for the donation.<br /><br />Oh – and totally irrelevant comment but you&#39;ll like
