The last thing you need in the week of a driving test is to hear that your seven year old niece had her foot run over by a car. I'm not sure of the details, but it is pretty scary to think that you can be driving along the road only to have a small girl do something a bit silly and seriously damage her .... or worse. Worst bit is just trying to find out what's going on - I wouldn't even have known if my brother had mentioned to the most wonderful woman in the world on MSN, and she, being the most wonderful woman in the world, passed the news on to.
Then today the wee fella gets sent to casualty on the grounds he might be jaundiced. Apparently he is, and this time they've got tests to prove it. This is a distinct improvement on "well, he looks a bit yellow" to which the only response is "meet his mother". He's growing fast - only a month old and nearly 4lbs on his birthweight. And that's for a breast fed baby.
Hopeful all this illness is not an omen for tomorrows test.
