On Friday it was our first anniversary. One whole year of being Mrs Gerrie. It’s been alright, like.
To celebrate we had a child free day around Liverpool. After having a mooch about town, we sampled some of the independent establishments.
Next up was a trip to Rookwood Bar & Cue for some EXCELLENT burgers and amazing chips with cheese and chilli. James again sampled some of The Liverpool Craft Beer Company’s beer, this time Black Bear. I tried this, I hate beer but this actually tasted quite nice to me. So I’m guessing it’s pretty damn good to people who actually like beer!! The food here was delicious and the venue was relaxed and fun. We really liked it.
I didn’t get to take any food photos as I was too busy eating.
After filling our tummies, we wandered down to Motel for a last drink. We like it in here. Cool tunes and cool decor!!!
We had a fun little time.
Yesterday we had a new appointment for Sebastian; this time with a community paediatrician from Alder Hey. As he is now getting too old to remain under the care of the paediatrician he saw at Liverpool Women’s, he will now start seeing the community one more regularly.
She was generally quite pleased with how he is developing but her main concern is with his not walking yet. When he stands, he tends to put his weight on the inside of his feet and his ankles are bending inwards. He also curls his toes under. He is not yet walking, though he is able to stand and move himself along whilst holding onto things. She has recommended referring him to occupational health and he may have to have some special boots made to help train his ankles and toes into the correct standing position.
So yet another appointment and a bit of a setback, but we shall see what happens. He has another appointment with his physiotherapist coming up soon and we shall also see what she says.
If anyone knows anybody that has worn these types of boots before, I’d love to get in touch with them. I don’t know anything about them – what they look like, how long they tend to be worn for, whether they have the desired effect etc.
On Sunday (11th), Grace and I (with a couple of secret helpers) took out some Lonely Bouquets and left them in different places for people to find.
I first saw it on Instagram and tracked it back to the Fleuropean blog. I loved the idea of it and thought it was a nice little thing to do. Grace also thought it sounded fun too.
So we made up some little bouquets:
And went on our travels leaving them around:
Grace thought it was great fun having to sneak around, leaving them. We’ll definitely be doing it again.
