Sorry I have been MIA lately, unfortunately, I got hit by the Lupus flare…my wrists were worst hit, and also my left knee, but I ploughed on, what gets me the hardest is the fatigue, so I have been resting up as much as I can. Although, it does have a knock-on effect, if I sleep too much I end up with migraines, so between the flare, the fatigue and the migraine, I havent been on top form of late. Thankfully though, the flare didn’t last very long, this is my first winter since my diagnosis, and I have been pretty lucky, I think I am in fact one of these people who deals better with the cooler temperature. We shall see though.
Anyway, last I left you with Clyde, he was chilling it up in the fridge. The following day we had a bit of an upsetting time with pink child. As it was Friday, it was ‘Show and Tell day’ so pink child wanted to take some pictures in of Clyde.
All went well, the teacher though Clyde was funny, then, some little spoilt brat proceeds to tell pink child that Clyde is not real, and that he is just a teddy. If you have ever seen ‘Hand That Rocks The Cradle’ in the scene were crazy ass nanny beats the crap out of a school bully….well, that’s how I was feeling…oh, but reader, it gets better/worse!
One thing with Lupus, and its mainly due to the meds…..I forget things, pretty easily, in fact I will admit I know my memory is not as good as it used to be, and I do not believe it has anything to do with age. I am not even 40 yet, so it’s either I am generally just a scatterbrain, or, it’s the meds! So I have to input EVERYTHING into my on-the-wall calender, my diary that I carry in my bag, and then into my iPhone. So, I put a message into my iPhone to Move Clyde at 9:30pm and give me a little alert.
Can I say….Fecking iCloud!!!! Pink child was not feeling great so I stupidly gave her the iPad so she can read one of those interactive story books, then the darn message flashed up….it was bad enough she was still feeling raw after what the brat in school said to her, then she gets that message….she SCREAMED!!! OMG I am surprised other continents never heard her.
The only thing that came out of my mouth was….’Well, we are normally all asleep by now, and maybe, Santa sent a message to Clyde via the iPad (because of course he would!) to tell Clyde to get a move on! I think disaster was averted. She calmed down, eventually, after 3 reads of ’The Elf on the Shelf’ storybook.
So, next morning Pink Child found Clyde chilling on the lap top, he had just finished writing a letter to her.
I know not the best picture, but you get the idea….all was ok with the world as he was chewing on some Jelly Belly’s (Yummm).
Clyde had ‘apparently’ told Santa that he was upset to see Pink Child upset, and because of this, Santa has put the offending
brat child on the naughty list…also included was a video from Santa from the Portable North Pole This is a fabulous website…Blue Child thinks it’s so real, he waves to Father Christmas, he was even asked by Santa to not be scared of trying new foods (he is such a fussy bugger and would only live off carrots and broccoli given half the chance) last night, he ate a meatball! YAY! If you don’t have kids, you can also do this for the loved ones in your life, for some reason, I got one from Santa and have been put on the naughty list as my husband says I am late for everything…pfft!
Next night, I had a night out with the girls, and Husband worried I would either fall into the tree with Clyde or do something ridiculous…so I can home very very drunk, but exceptionally happy, and was astounded to see Clyde on a 4×4 experience!
Sunday night, Clyde made sure the kids would remember to brush their teeth.
Then last night, he was as fatigued as I was and decided it was time to chill out!
Tonight, we will wait and see if Clyde can be bothered getting out of his bed!
