Yesterday I had to drag my child with me to work, after work, to receive my employer-sourced Swine Flu shot. A 20 minute journey took us 50 minutes on account of 1) the buggy (see below) and 2) Matei's insistence that he examine literally every car, like so:

Matei: "It has a light! This car is wet." or "This car has a light! This car isn't wet. Man dried it."

Anyway.

Receiving swine flu - fine really. Swelling and pain in injected arm is minimal, although I'm still using it as an excuse not to do any heavy lifting.

Matei bursting into tears and attacking the nurse in an attempt to defend me from the injection - wonderful but misguided.

Googling *how to release brakes on maclaren techno xt* on my phone, in the rain, while my engine-smitten child tries to hurl himself into the path of motorcycles - something of a low point.

Lying in bed with my son, while he questions whether my arm hurts and then gently strokes my face and hand until he falls asleep - a moment I've been travlling my whole life towards.

Your son is marvellous x

I got my swine flu jab last week and I had a golfball sized lump that was really hot to touch. Glad yours is nicer!
