I missed the nativity yesterday. I had a call from the school about Arthur, he had a temperature so they gave him some Calpol and needed to be picked up. April went and got him then headed to the nativity to see Flo.
He had his flu jab the day before so we think it's just a bad reaction to that. The injection point is firm and the area around is red. I had hoped he'd be better by this morning as he'd had a bit of a second wind later in the evening but when we got him up this morning he said he wanted to stay at home.
Luckily the school is putting on two nativities so will get to see Flo later today. Shame I won't get to see Arthur though as by all accounts he's been excellent in the rehearsals.

Not as cold this morning but a bit damp in the air. This is my favourite tree. It's nice isn't it?
The 15th is my last day of work this year and I have the 11th booked off for a West End pub crawl. I've also got 1 day left to take so that makes it 5 days. However, i'm off this afternoon to go to the kids nativity and next Friday with have a departmental Christmas social in the afternoon so it's more like 4. In addition to this I have no work to do. Urgh. It gets pretty boring sometimes!

One of our friends offered to look after the kids after rugby training on Sunday afternoon so I took April to Sankey's over in Tunbridge Wells. Don't worry, it's not all for me. It's a southern seafood boil with lobster, crab, prawns, mussels, sausage and corn. Yummy.
