How Can You.....

....stay cross at a boy who is so tired he falls asleep standing up!?



Nathaniel walked up to me yesterday and sank his teeth into my thigh (ouch!) I told him 'no' in a very stern voice and sat him in the middle of the floor. He screamed and wailed and threw himself around and I stood my ground and ignored him, thought 'I'll give him a love when he calms down' but then he stood still, rested his head on the sofa and fell asleep. I could hear him softly snoring and could be cross no more. I carried him up to bed and snuggled him tight all the way.

It's been a long, draining day. The clinic went well (although not as well as expected due to the weather) and we added another 22 people to the Anthony Nolan Register.

And I can't count! It appears I came in in second place, not third as I had been thinking all day!! Der!!

We had a lovely snowy day here yesterday.
