Welcome, Barack, and may you bring sanity and clarity.

So when I bragged..., I mean blogged from the A38 yesterday, we were on our way back from Plymouth, Sim nursing a sore left thumb gained somehow during his judo training session. He was being so calm about the fact the thumb was twice its normal size and immobile, that we automatically assumed it was "only" bruised or sprained, and treated it accordingly.

The thumb being somewhat discoloured and sickly-looking by this morning, The Boff took him to be X-rayed on the way to school this morning, whereupon we discovered that our family history of ignoring pesky things such as fractures (remember The Boff's ankle ? and Hen's wrist ?) had not gone away. The thumb is broken- thankfully he is right-handed and it will not affect his writing at all- and he was under gleeful instructions this morning from Hen, who'd already diagnosed him in consultation with Dr Google, to "get the green plaster", as we'd had pretty much all the other colours in the family already.

So tomorrow morning we trek back to our second home, the fracture clinic, for the boy's digit to be immobilised in the approved fashion.

See me blogging from my phone whilst bowling down the A38. I am not driving.
