Quick 7.



For the last couple of days I have woken up with an ear ache. I have been feeling really cold and my energy levels have been really low. Hopefully I will shake this soon.



I have been playing scrabble with a friend on facebook. In the last game I played, I was able to use all 7 letters twice. When you use all 7 letters, there is a bonus of 50 points. Even with these bonus points, I only just won the game. If I hadn't have come up with these words, I would have been seriously creamed.


Pumpkin Soup.

Today Tom is making pumpkin soup for us. One of my favourite things to do in winter is sit by a warm fire with a cup of warm soup in a mug.


First Communion.

It is two weeks till Tom makes his first communion. His God parents and 4 of their children will be staying with us for the weekend. My mother and Steve's mother will come down too. I have started planning our menu and will be preparing food to freeze this week and next week. I was going to do most of it today but really need to shake this cold before I start such a big task.


Home schooling.

Last Wednesday we did our morning subjects (Religion, Maths, Spelling, Reading) and then headed over to Boleroo to see Bill and Linda.
We had a fun afternoon catching up. It is good to spend time with other home schooling families.



We saw the boys Endocrinologist on the Friday before yesterday. Tom had a lot of changes made to his pump since his bsl have been a bit high. We seem to be on the right track to getting him in range.

Christopher is going really well on insulin. We did have to cut back a half a unit of insulin because he was having a few lows. I am seeing a few higher numbers in the evenings but none so high that we are concerned. He seems to be a changed boy since starting the insulin and I am glad we did it.


Slow cooker.

I bought a new slow cooker a couple of weeks ago. We have been doing lots of casseroles and soups in it. I have got dishes out of the freezer and left them in the fridge for 24 hours then move them to the slow cooker. Usually I have the slow cooker on low and heat the meal for 4-5 hours. It fills the house with lots of delicious smells.

Please pray for a cure for Type One Diabetes

Please pray for a cure for Type One Diabetes
Our sons Tom and Christopher and our daughter Amelia are type one diabetics. We pray everyday for a cure. We do not want one by illicit means though so don't support any organisation that contributes to Embryonic Stem Cell Research. Click on the photo of Tom and Christopher to read about why I am against using Embryonic Stem cells for a cure.
