Just had the best news ever...........

About 3 and a half years ago, my little boy, who was still a babe in arms at this point, was diagnosed with a benign tumour at the back of his right eye (haemangiona of the optic) We were told it could effect his eye sight, even close his eye up completely, and as the haemangioma was on his blood vessel they wouldn't operate as the risks were too high.

Today we have been for his annual check up, they are so impressed with his reading, and he has 20-20 vision, that the consultant has decided to give him an open discharge, meaning unless I think he needs to, we no longer need to attend the clinic for check ups.

I feel like a huge weight has lifted off my shoulders

This was the "lump" 3 years ago

The eye is nearly back to normal now
(yes I have realised he is dressed as a cat)

He starts school in September, and other than just watching to make sure he doesn't have a reaccurance of the swelling we now have a totally "normal" 4 year old,and I couldn't be happier.

Tour de France, Grand Depart

As I think the whole country now knows the Tour de France Grand Depart hits Yorkshire this weekend, doing North Yorkshire on Saturday and then heading to South Yorkshire on Sunday.
I live on a road just off Jenkin Road, which they are saying is the steepest gradient road not only in the Grand Depart, but in the whole of the Tour.

Although I have spent the last couple of weeks helping my daughters school get items together for a fund raising stall, as part of the Tour de Wincobank festival, the reality or scale of the event didn't hit me till this morning, as I was dropping the kids off at school an articulated lorry was reversing onto the field (Wincobank common), and by the time I had arrived back home barriers were being erected, metal sheeting was being put down and the whole area was the centre of a full military style operation.
People who's houses are on the direct route have started decorating their houses, so the main roads are a sea of yellow.
I am sure on Sunday I will get in the spirit of things, but at the moment everywhere I turn there are people moving things, and putting things up, and it all seems a bit too busy for my liking.

I will try and take some pictures over the next couple of days and post on my Twitter account @scarlettparties

Viva la tour
