Yesterday I had Sam with me for a few hours - to give Lloyd a chance to work on his relationship with Abigail. They haven't had a good week and I have had several heart-wrenching calls and messages from a VERY unhappy and distressed little girl :(
Poor Sam wasn't feeling to well though - he was sooooo quiet and had a bad sore throat. Luckily I had some throat sweets and meds in the house which helped a bit. We hung out at home for a bit, while Laurence drove his friend back to Tofield. Sam looked at his sunflowers and peas, and we played a game of Othello - he beat me!!! Sigh.....
Then we headed in to town and met up with some friends at Kidz Quarterz. I got to chat with Tracy for a while, Laurence bonded with her husband over used cars (lol) and Sam played with Tracy's youngest two.....
We saw more friends as we were leaving which was nice :)
Once we got outside and into the car though, Sams meds were wearing off and he was quite tearful. I checked Lloyd was home and took him home earlier than planned because I felt he needed to just have a nap or flop on the sofa for a while.
It was lovely to have my boy back home and with me - where he belongs - even if just for a few hours, but was hard to see him feeling so bad. He really goes down hill fast when he is sick - he doesn't eat and is always so quiet :(
Roll on Sunday when Sam and Abby are home again :) It's been a long week without them!
It was lovely to have time with Laurence - we don't get to have one on one time very often - but having just one child is sooooooo QUIET - I much prefer when my life is busy and filled with noise :)
