Happy Birthday to you, happy birthday to you…

… and you’re poorly

Poor little mite, he had a cold on his first birthday and now, a fever, on his second. This is only Maddoc’s second day home from nursery since he started in January (the first being yesterday).

He was much better this morning and I took him there at 07:15 for his breakfast, with ice-cream, meringue, bananas and chocolate sauce for his friends and their 10:00 break.

At 08:20 I got the call, telling me that I needed to come back and pick him up as he wasn’t himself. He’s now having a nap after getting a birthday treat of a few Thomas the Tank Engine episodes. (

mentioned his daughter being wise enough to avoid Thomas due to the beatles link. Maddoc has been spared the beatles in this home and so was more positive to Mr. Starr)

He enjoyed it but agrees it’s not a patch on Ivor the Engine!

When he wakes up I think I’ll introduce him to something else before we read some books together.

Anybody awaiting contact from me for whatever reason, don’t be surprised if I’m out of contact until Saturday (as Maddoc is home for the next three days).
