tyres .. grrrrrrr

So what did we do on Friday? We went to baby massage in the morning and Lewis loved it as normal. We did chest and stomach, and then went back over the legs and Lew loved having his feet massaged! After baby massage, we went to Lesley's house and had a lovely lunch (salad sandwich with salad from Kevin's garden!) then we drove to Retford to look round the shops. Lew loved seeing Tobey! We had a good wander round the charity shops and also around some of the regular shops and I got some bargains! At around 3.45pm we went back to the car to head home and both Lesley and me noticed the car was making a strange noise. So just outside of Retford (on a long road with fields and farms on either side and no houses or shops or buildings at all!) I pulled over into a parking area and ... the rear passenger tyre was COMPLETELY FLAT! On our lovely new car that we collected on Monday! Booooo hoooooo! So I had to ring RAC and wait for them to come out. Kevin came to collect Lesley and Tobey as Tobey was tired and it wasnt fair for them to have to hang around, and me and Lew settled down to wait for the RAC! 1hr 40 minutes later, the RAC man came. As our other car (and James) were at a garage getting James car fixed as it had also broken down that day (!!!) our friend Ian (massage man) very kindly came across and helped me with sorting out the RAC man! The RAC man said the car would need to be recovered to home, so we then had to wait AGAIN (no now it was dark!) for the recovery truck to come which was another hour! It eventually arrived and followed us home (me and Lew went in Ian's car) and we got in just after 7.30pm ... very very tired and fed up! The moral of that story is - dont go to Retford, hahaaaaaaaaaaaaaa! And why was the tyre on my BRAND NEW car flat? It had a nail in it!!! Thank goodness, Renault garage have been great and they came out early this morning to put a new wheel on and they will sort out getting the tyre replaced on the damaged wheel and will get it back to us early next week ... phew! What awesome service! So if you are wondering about getting a Renault from the showroom on White Rose Way - I would recommend them 100% - they have been great. When James was back from sorting his car as well (cars, arggh!) we went to Tesco to stock James up on his 'diet' food as he starts his 'sponsored slim' on Monday. Then we went for a walk round the lake with Richard and Luke, and fed the ducks. It was freeeeeeeeeeeezing! Snow has been forecast, and by the temperature and the wind today, I can well believe it! Lew had such a good time round the lake, as he got plenty of attention off his big bro Samuel! Samuel made Lew laugh alot which was wonderful to see and hear! When we got back from the lake, we went to Teresa's for a cup of tea and watched Teresa ironing for a bit! It was lovely to see Bev and Paul who were visiting Teresa as well. They have just got back from a holiday in Egypt and were both looking fabulous! We came home just after 6pm and got Lew ready for bed. Just a quick thank you to our postpal Sian who sent me a mothers day card (aww!) and little letters and pictures by her brother Jamie to James and Samuel. Thank you Sian also for the lovely little bear, for the 'mothers day cheques' and for your lovely home made card. Very much appreciated and reminded me that I need to take a photo of the pictures Jamie coloured for Lew's birthday which I have put on the wall in his playroom! Good night everybody, soooooo tired!

Glad to hear Lewis enjoyed Baby Massage on Friday. But bad news about your new car, nearly 3 hours is a long time to wait. Time goes really slow when your waiting for something!
Anyway im so happy that you liked your mothers day 'pack' and James and Samuel liked their pictures from Jamie. Thankyou for mentioning me, it really mean alot to me.

Take Care and enjoy the rest of your weekend

The Lewis Jeynes Fund

The Lewis Jeynes Fund was established to provide care and support to Lewis Jeynes and the success of the Fund has meant that we have also been able to purchase specialist equipment for other children with undiagnosed neurologically degenerative conditions in Doncaster and the UK.

Lewis and his friends around the UK all suffer from acute and undiagnosed life limiting or terminal conditions and very often specialist equipment is difficult to afford due to the changed circumstances at home. This is where the Fund can provide vital assistance to those in need. All of the proceeds of the Fund go straight towards helping Lewis, and other children and families like him and us.

Contributions should be sent to The Lewis Jeynes Fund, 15 Kentmere Drive, Doncaster, DN4 5FL or by BACS to Nat West Bank, “The Lewis Jeynes Fund” Account No. 35662565 Sort Code 60 06 39. You can also go into your local Nat West Bank and pay into the Fund over the counter.

i love you much (most beautiful darling) by e.e.cummings

i love you much (most beautiful darling), more than anyone on the earth and i like you better than everything in the sky -sunlight and singing welcome your coming although winter may be everywhere with such a silence and such a darkness, no one can quite begin to guess (except my life) the true time of year - and if what calls itself a world should have the luck to hear such singing (or glimpse such sunlight as will leap higher than high through gayer than gayest someone's heart at your each nearness) everyone certainly would (my most beautiful darling) believe in nothing but love
