OMG Oliver is 11 years old today.....

Can you believe that exactly 11 years has gone past? I sometimes wonder where all the time went and then I look back on things that have happened both good and bad and realise that all these things that have happened have made us who we are today, the adults we have become, the family that we are....

On this day 11 years ago Noel and I had a special arrival into our world making us a family! A little boy weighing 9lbs 1 1/2 ounces and measuring 52cms long. A speedy delivery by C-Section due to a complication and whammo we were parents.

He is fantastic - caring, funny and all round a great kid!! And a wonderful son to have and a beautiful person....

We had to give him one of his birthday presents last night as his present was a Siamese Fighting Fish. His face lit up when he realised what was in the bag that I asked him to get out of the car and I think he fell asleep watching it swim around it's tank. It is an orange male fish which he has named Raphael!!

Tonight Nana and Grandad are coming for dinner. Oliver is of course banned from getting on the trampoline tonight considering what happened last Wednesday on Alex's birthday!! The menu tonight was Oliver's choice (we always let them choose on their birthdays!)

Penne with Tomato and Chorizo
Garlic Bread
Birthday cake (of course)

Alex is doing okay with her arm, although when we went to the doctors yesterday the x-ray showed that the bone had moved slightly, not enough to do something about it straight away but enough to have her go back for another x-ray on Friday. If the bone hasn't moved by Friday she will stay plastered for another 5 - 6 weeks. But if the bone has moved anymore there is the chance that she will be admitted to theatre Friday afternoon and have her bone re-set again. I am not quite sure if they will just try and re-manipulate her arm or if she will have an operation. Noel is taking her to the doctors tomorrow as I have to be at work.

Crossing fingers until then........
