This one is of little Ruby, who I am pleased to say, had her cast removed a couple of days ago. It seems very early to me, and she is still saying "ouch" a lot, but I guess the doctors know what they are doing. (????!). Her wrist is still very bruised and swollen, but I'm sure nature will do its job. It's strange how quickly we get used to things, because I have noticed that she is still using her left hand to eat with and to draw with, even though she is naturally right-handed. I guess that will come back when she feels more confident about the right arm.
Anyway, here she is and, as you will see, although the cast has been removed, Ruby clearly thinks that her little arm should still be all wrapped up!
|I don't know what has happened here peeps, but I will have to ask you to please scroll down the page for the rest of this post! I've tried fiddling around with it, but to no avail! Sorry about that.|
Everyone here has really been getting into the Olympics, and the support for our team has been amazing! Royal Mail have come up with the brilliant idea of painting the red post boxes GOLD in the home towns of all those Olympians who win gold medals. I thought that was such a lovely idea, and they have gone even further in that all gold medal winners are going to have a stamp printed in their honour.
I was like a wet rag at the end of the evening last night. So much excitement for the British people. We won six gold medals yesterday, with three coming one right after the other in the Athletics competition. Unbelievable! I think we have probably peaked now - bit like me really!
I do hope that everyone out there has had a good week and that you are enjoying the summer. As I look out the window, the rain is pouring down again. The poor garden is starting to resemble a jungle, as everything is growing so much!
See you all again soon. Bye for now.
