Holiday Happenings!

Well life sort of takes over when all children and hubby are home. I'm (currently) enjoying the chaos!

We where supposed to have been on holiday, this wet and windy week, having upgraded hoping to have something decent to sit on and sleep the caravan and site was lovely

but nothing decent to sit on or sleep in. The day we arrived was glorious

After the first night I was up at 0430, eldest 0500 and youngest who can sleep for england 0750!! We took a vote and came home. I was crippled.


on Friday whilst out for a walk hubby was rushed (blue lights and sirens) to hospital! It was quite traumatic as we had walked about 1.5 miles and he said he had to sit down, I said do you want me to go get the car, yes he did. So eldest and I power walked our way home leaving youngest with him. 400yds from home we heard sirens I flipped but K said T would have phoned, neither of us had recieved calls. So got to the car, drove back round and they where gone, a gentleman was waiting to say they had gone to Great Western. K phoned T and said we had got the message when she got off the phone she said they had the sirens going, so we knew it wasn't good. I broke every speed limit by double and arrived minutes after the ambulance, as they where from Bristol and had taken a MAJOR detour as they didn't know the direct route to hosp
Anyway when we arrived he was in major pain and they looked after him very well. T collapsed in my arms sobbing her heart out (she has learning difficulties and considering what she had been through coped remarkably well)/.
Anyway after the morphine everything calmed down, they kept him in overnight and he was discharge yesterday, they don't know whats wrong with him but has to go back for all sorts of scans etc, etc
Since his 50 birthday, he has been to hospital every year without fail for something, once he gets the morphine he's fine is this telling me something??

The advantage to being at home apart, from the above, was I got to see this

The chooks are on there holidays, in a neighbours huge garden, and he's happy for them to be there for a couple of weeks which rests my plot!
I will post more this week and hopefully get back up to speed again!!

Hi Libby, hugs to you all and special ones for hubby. What a fright you all had. I do agree with you, home is the best place to be in such circumstances. The weather has been a wash out and now after a bried few moments of sunshine I can see the grey clouds getting ready to grace us with their presence.
Takke care honeybunch.

Hi there Libby, what a chapter of accidents! What a shame that the caravan was so uncomfortable. Have to admit we are thinking of getting new beds for our new (to us) van.

Hope your Husband is recovered - must have been quite a shock.

Hugs from Liverpool

Oh dear, what an awful week you have had. Poor husband, I hope he gets all the necessary tests and finds out what's wrong ASAP! Your girls must have had such a shock, as you did too, I'm sure. Good to just take it easy for the weekend.... let everyone calm down. And the flowers are lovely!

Cheryl said...

Libby what an absolutely awful week. I do hope hubby finds out what is wrong so that he can be must have been such a worry for you.
I should think you all need a holiday....

Your flowers are exquisite to say the they have a perfume, I would imagine they do.....

Hope things improve Libby, and take care...

Jennie said...

NOT a good week for you and yours Libby. I hope they get to the bottom of what's wrong with your husband asap. What a shame about the holiday caravan too - but no point in having a sleepless week.

GORGEOUS flowers by the way.

Allotment Lady said...

Oh my goodness - what a calamity - the caravan looked so roomy and nice too.

Hope things calm down and are sorted asap - and that they finally get to the bottom of your husband's health issues.

The flowers are stunning - really beautiful

I am sure now that you are all back home things will improve.


I haven't used any B&B's in this area to recommend - but will look some up for you.

Really hope your husband's feeling better now. What an ordeal for you all.

Your brugs are looking great - I'm so glad your virus fears didn't turn into reality.
