Every time I walk through the door of my doctor’s surgery the ladies at the desk and I have a bit of a giggle. “Reserved Seating” is the standing joke. With six kids (one with Type 1 Diabetes), there are times of the year when there always seems to be someone sick, and it feels like I am there every other day. Fortunately the kids love our doctor, he makes them laugh and stirs them up a bit (maybe a bit too much). He only has boys so he gets a kick out of my girls getting all dressed-up for their visit, taking their little handbags and doing a little dance for him. No, seriously, they are sick!
The last few weeks, no, make that a month, have been filled with sick kids and visits to our much loved GP, and this long weekend was no different. We have the vaporizer going and the ventolin happening. It has been wet and cold, so we have all been stuck indoors, and menu planning has been the last thing on my mind. No time for web-surfing for new inspiration unfortunately. I think I am hitting the mid-year slump. Everything considered (me with no sleep and feeling like the local chemist), I think I will keep it pretty quick and easy, no time for experimenting this week. But I will try to make it interesting, there’s nothing like feeling sick and being served up boring food. And I think I will throw in lots of garlic and veges.
