One of my old heirlooms has been knocking around the house for ages, a rocking horse - the hard plastic head had broken up and the whole thing was falling apart. Someone had the idea of sprucing it up to give to Reuben and it was delivered tonight. A real team effort, Ally bought the supplies and facilitated the boys painting the wood and metalwork, Moli did some fancy Easter artwork on the seat, I fitted the 2nd hand plush head.
Pads couldnt make the trip as he was concentrating on keeping his tea down (a whole enchilada). He's still very fragile at the prospect of the interventions tomorrow - there has got to be some way of getting him over his hang-ups (with the NG tube especially).
