So I take you back to Friday the 5th of September at 8.20am, I must say, at 8.15 I was feeling pretty smug. Jack had gone off on the School bus on time, the house was tidy, lunches were made and we were ready to leave. We were just waiting for Emily to arrive (our neighbour who I drive to college)
He looked up at me panic in his eyes and said “Mummy I have swallowed it,” he was a bit of a grey colour. “Swallowed what I said”. It seems he had swallowed a pound coin, but now felt it was stuck in his throat; he said he could feel it lodged there. I gave him water but he still claimed it was there.
We were lucky casualty was very quiet and we were seen very quickly. The Nurse spent some time questioning Joe and decided X-rays were the way forward, but was told if the pound was found in his throat, it would have to be removed. At this point the day could only get better.
Eating breakfast at home is just not an option when you are feeding and herding a family around, so I keep my desk full of breakfast options. This week I have tried out the belVita crunchy range. My favourite is definitely the Choc Chip biscuits they go lovely with a cup of coffee, and set me up for the day. I am a person that is always thinking about my next meal, these kept me going until my lunch break and tasted great. Unfortunately a little too great as the ones I left at home have been demolished by the boys, but hey better that than them pound coins.
