Hurricane in Wind Farm
Nothing nautical today as we spent our time exchanging tumble driers with friends. Or rather, we dumped our clapped-out victorian version, as used by Queen Victoria, in their skip whilst moving their unwanted newer version into our shed. Good swap,eh? The remainder of the day was spent rushing to a hospital in Birmingham where our newest granddaughter was being cared-for by our wonderful NHS.She was taken in last night due to breathing difficulties. On arrival we were greeted by Sienna in an oxygen tent with various monitors and machines attached to her, apparently suffering with bronchiolitis, a virus infection( !!?!!) common in very young children. She looks to be improving by the hour.The unfortunate illness just before Christmas is as welcome as a hurricane in a wind farm.
