    Well i thought i better get writing or i'll never post again lol!
    I honestly can't remember what we've been up to this past week so this may be a bit of a vague post!
    Firstly a very HAPPY NEW YEAR to all my readers. Let's hope 2007 is healthy and happy for us all!
    Nothing exciting happened last week if i remember rightly. DH did lots of cycling with Corey on the back as he is getting into training for his big charity event. If anyone would like to sponsor him then you can do so here. All monies will go to the Neonatal/Special Care units at Jessops Hospital in Sheffield where Corey was born. I am so proud of him for going out and doing this. He is so determined. The only downside to it for him(and us) is being away from home for 4 days.
    Anyway on New Years Eve we didn't do anything. Apart from being strapped for cash we had Corey to look after and so spent a quiet evening in which is what we usually do anyway and we like it that way. At 12 o'clock as the fireworks started Corey woke up and ended up in bed with us for around 40 minutes until they had died down. It was really lovely actually as we don't allow him in bed with us usually as he'd get too used to it and so we snuggled down and watched some TV. Then we put him back to bed and he was very good and it wasn't long before he was asleep again.
    New Years day we decided to go out to Castleton for a mooch around. It was really quiet even though the shops and such were open. We didn't stay long, mainly because of the fact that it was so very cold! We didn't do much for the rest of the day.
    Tuesday Dave was back at work and Corey and I had to go to the local Children's centre for the inserts for his shoes. It's not near us so we have to get a couple of buses with me not driving so i was most annoyed when we got there to be told by the Orthotist that he didn't feel Corey needed them. He said alot of children are flat footed and it usually corrects itself by the age of 5. As his ankles are fairly straight he would prefer to leave it and just to make sure that Corey wears a strong boot to support his ankle. I have a few problems with this which i am kicking myself for not bringing them up there and then but i was a bit gobsmacked at the time. Firstly what if the problem doesn't correct itself and we spend the next 2 yrs doing the usual falling over and not going up and down stairs properly when it could have been helped? Also you can get strong boots on the NHS(piedro boots) so why, if he needs boots, were these not offered to us. And lastly, if the Physio felt he needed them and he would benefit from them would someone from the same department disagree, shouldn't they be working together? Apparently he had not paperwork for Corey from the Physio, just his name so he knew none of the findings from her. Just makes be angry that there is so little lack of communication. Anyways, i am waiting to hear from the Physio as i would like to air my views!
    Yesterday was nursery day and a bit of a milestone as Corey started in the Parrot class which is for the 3-5 yr children. He had been so excited and kept saying he was going upstairs(which is where the parrot room is). When i picked him up they said he had had a great time. He had been drinking from his big boys open cup and had even been sitting on the toilet even though he didn't go(toilet training is very slow!). He had eaten well at lunchtime and done a lovely picture for me complete with lots of glue! From this week he starts to go more often and so we are back at nursery tomorrow which he is thrilled about! I am off to town tomorrow to run some errands and i may just pop into the coffee shop to chill out with a Latte, ahhh bliss!
    Happy 2007!

      How frustrating - Why do these departments not speak to each other.

      Sounds like Corey made a good start in Parrot class and I hope you enjoy your peaceful latte tomorrow xxx

      Sounds like Corey is having a ball with the Parrot class. You enjoy your chill out time tomorrow, you deserve it.x

      Aww the parrot class sounds great and sounds like Cory loves it! and how cool is it to have our little ones make pictures for us complete with tons of glue!!

      I know what you mean about the lack of communication!! That drives me insane and I just want to scream.. "Don't you even read about the child a bit before you see them?" argg..

      That is fantastic about Dave's cycle run.. wow that is a long way :) I wish I could show my support to him finantially but when you are living with your inlaws and don't have a finance its tough!! I'm sure he will do great though!! Good luck!

      We had a quiet new year here as well.. Randie stayed up till 10pm which is 2 hours past her bedtime.. but the fireworks did not wake her which I was shocked they were soooo loud!

      Enjoy your latte tomorrow!!

      Parrot class - I love that! So glad to hear Corey is enjoying himself.

      Wishing you a belated Happy New Year, Cath!! I sympathise with you over the non-communication between health professionals - it's incredibly frustrating, isn't it, especially the lack of paperwork. Hope Corey enjoyed his new class! xxx

      I feel your irritation at the lack of communication - it annoys me too. If things were run smoothly then they would also have an easier time as well as their patients. GRRR.

      So glad Corey is enjoying Parrot class, he is really growing up fast. Treasure all those pictures and sticky masterpieces :)

      Happy New Year,
