A busy few days

On Thursday we were back over at Alder Hey for Chris's clinic appointment. We arrived at the hospital not long after half nine and managed to have Chris's bloodtests done before 10am. We fitted in a quick coffee for me and Coke for Chris before headed up to clinic. Clinic was a bit short staffed today, both receptionists were missing and so was Hayley who usually does the weighing and measuring. Despite this we were finished in record time. Chris got a taxi back to school while I had lunch and waited for pharmacy. Just as I was collecting Chris's meds, someone told me that Twin Vision were up at clinic and were looking for us. So I popped back up there and they had invitations to the launch event of the film which Chris helped make, which is going to be part of a display "A room with a view" at St Georges Hall in Liverpool.

After I got home from the hospital I went and spent a pleasant afternoon drinking coffee and chatting with Angela at her place, before coming home for tea. in the evening Chris started his next round of steroids.

On Friday Chris's mock exams began, he had his German oral and aural exams in the morning and his English Language exam in the afternoon. He said there was a lot of sitting around between exams but all seems to have gone okay.
Ian was home pretty late in the evening, there having been some delays due to overhead wire problems somewhere in the vicinity of Rugby!

This morning Ian and I were out early for a prayer breakfast. Chris's day proceeded at a more leisurely pace though he did decide to pop out to the Co-op to buy in supplies (Jammie dodgers, croissants and pain chocolats - steroids!!) Meanwhile Ian and I had an interesting time helping Debbi change the tyre on her car when she had a flat just as she left the breakfast! When we got home I made Chris a nice lunch/ brunch of an omelette, bacon and croissants before going to buy a new suitcase for Ian in Birkenhead.
