Nana used to say "It never rains but it pours" and so it's been with our family recently.
This morning Cully May, our 3yo ball of endless energy, decided to climb, climb and climb some more till she reached the highest place in Blossom's kitchen where the medicine is kept safely out of harm's way. She then chewed and swallowed a codeine/paracetamol tablet which Blossom takes for her migraines.
It was as she swallowed that chewed tablet and her face screwed up (because it tasted awful) that Blossom caught her, at first thinking Cully May had eaten a vitamin but then discovering the more sinister truth.
I met them at the hospital and we were seen immediately, Cully May monitored for the next five hours.
Initially very drowsy and just wanting to sleep, she picked up as the hours wore on and after regular monitoring by the nursing staff the doctor gave us the all clear to take her home.
Praise God! There was a lot of prayer offered up in the hospital and Mr E was praying at work too.
Blossom was amazing, so calm under pressure (takes after her dad) which is important in situations that can frighten children. We're just so relieved Cully May is fine and the emergency is over.
A motorbike accident, a dog bite and Cully May in hospital - all within 13 days.
Mr E, Blossom and I all agree that we could use a break from accidents and hospitals right now!
I'm showing the second last block in My Scrappy Vintage Kitchen today and it's one of my favourites, The Apron.

We're planning a quieter weekend than those of late and I do pray your own will be restful and calm as well.
Excuse me for the short post today but there's a cup of chamomile brewing and a dear husband waiting to watch a documentary so I'm going to sign off and settle in for a restful and hopefully uneventful evening.
