February Recap

Well, posting regularly for the GBB kind of fell through…  I learnt alot through it though (separate post to come).

Honestly, Feb was a rubbish month.  It was Theo’s first birthday so I was expecting it to be better than January but it was not to be.  Theo was ill for the majority of the month.  And the day after his birthday we were in A&E at 6:00am for the day as Theo was particularly unwell.  He had picked up a vomiting bug from nursery, and although he was able to keep some food and fluids down, when he woke up on Saturday morning he was drowsy and floppy.  Off we went to A&E for what felt like the millionth time.  When they took his routine observations his blood sugar had dropped to 2.1mmol (it should be 4-8mmol) and his temp was 35C (it should be 36-37C).  They gave him IV glucose, after the oral glucose failed to do anything, and kept Theo in all day for monitoring.

Wow, that was the longest day.  Have you ever tried starving a toddler, rationing diarlyte fluids and keeping them in the one room all day?  It was dreadful.  They sent off a hypoglycaemic screen to see it he has a metabolic disorder which caused the hypo.  I’m hoping it was just because he’s been ill so much recently and his body had had enough.  We’re still waiting for the results to come back.

Actually, Feb wasn’t all bad.  I finished work on the 22nd so am now unemployed/a SAHM; woo woo!  Everyone in our household is so much happier as a result.  Such a relief.  Now I get to spend all day, every day with my favourite little man.  Cue a million trips to the park as soon as the weather’s dry enough…

Theo also got his first proper shoes!  He wasn’t impressed.

I’ve been putting it off because they’re so expensive and I’ve read that it’s best for toddlers to be as close to bare foot as possible until they are confidently walking inside and outside.  Whilst theo is most definitely walking/running, he’s still safer in the pram when we’re out and about.  I eventually relented because I cannot find any “normal” baby shoes to fit his large, fat feet.  So cute.

In hindsight, the end of February was pretty great.

  1. My name is Liz and I’m contacting you from Silver River Productions, a TV company based in London. We are currently in production for a BBC2 primetime gardening show ‘The Big Allotment Challenge.’

    The series follows a handful of talented amateur kitchen gardeners as they transform a plot of earth in our walled garden into a patch of beauty and reveal all the wonderful possibilities that can be unlocked from allotment growing.

    We are looking for contestants to feature in the series, those who have the skill and dedication and who could dig their way to victory and be crowned the winner of ‘The Big Allotment Challenge.’ People who can cultivate the perfect carrot, make their green tomatoes into tasty chutney and turn their dahlias and sweet peas into floral arrangements.

    So whether you’re an allotmenteer, a city living window box grower, or a gardening enthusiast, we want to hear from you. We are coming to the end of our application process so email grow@silverriver.tv for an application form today!
