Uh- oh, not what you want to hear at lunchtime!
But I did, yesterday at about 1.30pm.
'..............Calum's fallen off the climbing frame and hurt his hand. Do you want us to take him to A&E at the Sick Children's hospital and you can meet us there?'
Um. What else was there to say really?
Alasdair and I got in the car and drove to the hospital, where we met our brave wee Calum.
He had landed on his hand but it was his finger that really bothered him. His right index finger was purple, swollen and he couldn't feel the top third of it.
The doctor took one look at it, and sent him for an x-ray.
This was very exciting for Alasdair!
The x-ray showed that he had broken his index finger. He had been so brave, that despite the swelling and colour I was still surprised it was broken.
Because of the awkward place where the break is, he has been put in a plaster cast from the tips of his fingers to almost his elbow!
For 10 days.
Just in time for the school holidays.
We are off on holiday for a week tomorrow to a cottage in a place called Lairg, up near the very north of Scotland. It is a really beautiful part of the country. Lots of forests and rolling hills.
We have been to the same cottage twice before and love it so much we keep going back. This time my brother, his wife and 3 boys are coming too so it's even more exciting! The cottage is nice and big.
I'll be back next Saturday, so until then.........
