Thomas is allowed to stay up with Amy at weekend and last night we went to bed leaving them both playing a game in the Xbox room.
Suddenly, he came barging into the bedroom all of a dither. Amy had stood up, knocked his laptop on the floor and as he'd leaned forward to catch it, the dish he had on his knee dropped onto it and crack the LED display thingy leaving a lovely rainbow effect on the screen.
You have to be careful with Thomas, even a normal reaction of 'bloody hell' can reduce him to panic and tears, so we told him to turn it off, go to bed and we'd deal with it in the morning.
Luckily we took out a care plan when he bought it, mainly because it wasn't cheap and he'd bought it with his own money that Tom had given him. I was against doing it as we don't bother with any plans or insurance for anything like this normally, but Mark insisted and I'm glad he did. We've already had a hardware problem with it and we just took it back and handed it over to be fixed. Same this morning. We handed it in and we can pick it up again in a week.
On the way back we stopped at the shops and I picked up the last of the gifts for his teachers.
When I asked him how many I needed to buy for he said 4. Then there's the 2 office staff, a lovely man who goes in and listens to them read every week, a teacher who runs lego club, plus his Year 3 teacher who I will never be able to thank enough for helping Thomas through a difficult time.
We decided on bottles of wine for the office staff and his Y3 teacher as I know they're partial to a glass or two of vino, biscuits for the man, and a little goody bag of wine, chocolates and stationery for the rest. I favour nobody staff wise. I know what goes on in schools and everybody works hard.
The rest of the day has been spent doing bits and bobs. Amy has been in work and Thomas has been practising skipping with my dressing gown cord for sports day tomorrow. He's also in the 3 legged race which makes me and Mark smile. He walks with a little bit of a limp so it will be interesting to see how he fares trying to run with one of his legs tied to a friend's. But he volunteered for both races so he must think he's capable.
After raining all day yesterday, it's been lovely today so Mark has been re-grouting the patio. He found some filler on line where rather than mixing cement and having to work your way around on all fours, all you have to do is wet the patio and brush the filler into the gaps then leave it to set.
I've spent the day doing not very much, which has been rather nice.
Hope you've all had a lovely Sunday.
