Weeks! #27: life and broken bits

2014-06-30 19.31.45Games are big in our house, and no game is a more important staple than Unexploded Cow. The boys are even starting to learn strategy.

2014-07-01 10.18.11Gratuitous George photo. I was having a sick day.

2014-07-01 19.11.52While I was away, Sebastian managed to convince his father to buy him a zebra onesie. It results in no end of amusement.

2014-07-02 13.09.22James and I managed to find time for lunch together at Loading Zone. Delicious lemon tart.

2014-07-02 15.08.49Exciting new stockings!

2014-07-02 19.39.15Things continue a little stressful in life. So the odd Lindor Ball and glass of wine is necessary.

2014-07-02 20.05.28Maybe two Lindor Balls.

And there is nothing better for relieving stress than killing a few monsters.

2014-07-03 08.19.05Thursday morning and I was walking Jude and Zac to school early for choir.

2014-07-03 20.13.52Zac has started to expand his cooking skills and here was helping me make cupcakes that he could take to school for his birthday.

2014-07-04 08.42.24The last day at school was pyjama day. With added pillow for watching movies.

2014-07-04 12.26.54Derby shirt Friday involved Oberon Roller Derby this week.

2014-07-04 21.05.40Despite not being 100%, a bit of derby training was good for me. This appears to be the story of my life at the moment.

2014-07-05 13.09.56Saturday morning was Zac’s birthday party and the Labours of Zac-ules. Here he is slaying the hydra. More about this separately.

2014-07-05 15.42.34I started a new book while at junior derby. So far am really enjoying it – it is beautifully written.

Sunday morning we road tripped up to Sydney for the first Capital Carnage bout. Mum and Dad had arrived the night before, so Jude and Zac opted to stay and hang out with their grandparents while Sebastian decided her wanted to see James play. The first half of the game went well – while SMASH were still up, Carnage were holding their own. Then, early in the second half, James went down. I was concerned, but then he got up and skated back to the bench. A couple of minutes later I saw that he was waving me to come over and had a first aid person with him. His collarbone was broken.

There was pain relief and ambulances and the whole lot. Eventually James went by ambulance to Bankstown Hospital nearby and Sebastian and I drove over to join him. Fortunately the break was a reasonably clean one which was touching and should heal ok, so no surgery was required. After some time, and medication and observation etc, I drove us home from Sydney. Wasn’t quite the end to the week we were hoping for.
