Snap, Crackle ....

.... Pop.

A fabulously hot and sunny Indian Summer weekend is not complete without at least one trip to A&E. Which is where we spent approximately 3 1/2 hours late yesterday afternoon with Destructo Boy. Today's card from the Morgan-Greer tarot deck is quite accurate - except for the head bandage and the blood. Thank the gods there was no blood, or else Destructo Boy would still be screaming now ....

Not content with having broken the old shower head followed by breaking the new one within a day of its installation, as well as his sparks scooter, he utilized a visit to the playpark with Belo and Ubercool Brother to Destructo himself by falling from a climbing frame and breaking his right wrist.

Mini Diva has not gained her name for nothing, and fails to see why her brother is getting all the attention; she looked something like this - but younger and not Latina:

as she exclaimed '' But it's only an ARM !''

Destructo Boy has a cast on for 2 weeks as it's a buckle fracture, the doctor at the fracture clinic this morning told me. After that, he should be fine. For some reason, he is embarrassed by his cast and doesn't want to go to school ....

It is very lucky that his shared birthday party - a trampolining party at the sports centre - was on Saturday, and went not only without a hitch, but without any damage to anyone more serious than a graze. However, I think the bowling he has requested for his actual birthday next weekend may have to wait until his arm has healed.

To add insult to injury, someone(s) have scoffed Destructo Boy's birthday box of grown-up chocolates that he was given ....


  1. Would that be you then Mum? Poor lad! Hope his wrist is better soon! What is a buckle fracture then??
    Sending get better soon wishes!

  2. Oh, my, what a hectic weekend. No wonder there was a need for chocolate sustenance ;D Hope he gets over his cast embarrassment, and at least with the weather cooling down he shouldn't get too itchy!

  3. What a difference a half a century makes. When I was about 5 or 6 I wanted a cast so bad so everybody could sign it, especially Superman! Get better soon Destructo Boy, and Happy B-day.

  4. Aw, poor kid. And they had the nerve to pinch the chocolates! Hopefully things will look up for him soon.


Thanks ! I love comments :-)
