Well, technically we didn’t get as far as the Shang Dynasty, but the title was too good an opportunity to miss. 😉 I’ve got to stretch these Little Shop of Horrors titles out until the 20th Feb anyway, because i’ve got a dentist appointment then and that is also too good an opportunity to miss!
We’ve added a little more to China today, covering (via SOTW Vol 1) the Warring States, the unification of Ancient China, the first Emperor and how the Great Wall was built. All interesting. I like the stories in SOTW1 but i don’t rate the Activity Book so highly; it seems to be mainly colouring pages. Still, they seemed to enjoy it.
Other stuff was limited as i’m struggling with a really heavy cold that sent me to bed last night at 5pm (though i took my laptop!) Fran did some maths, Amelie played on the computer, they all used the CBBC site which they’ve finally discovered 🙄 and Maddy did a fair bit of drawing.
Tomorrow is busy and i don’t feel healthy enough for it. Grr. Oh well.
Oh. And…. it did do me good getting all that off my chest the other day. I’ve finally realised how angry i am. It’s given me the push to apply for my notes (I’m just about to write the letter) and when i get them, i’m going to start a process of complaining. I’ve got a feeling they’ll have expected one MUCH earlier. Someone should pay for how much damage has been done. Someone has got to account to me for the fact that not once did anyone say that either i, nor Josie were in distress and that sticking at 6cm for 3 hours was a good enough reason to have a section. I don’t believe for a second it would have been call for one if i’d not already had one. I’ve had 3 babies where they’ve been (twice wrongly) concerned for my babies health and i know how they act. No one was acting like that. They wanted me to have a section now so they could do me (the high risk case) before the woman next door who wanted one. I suspect they wanted me to have one before the “Elective Section Theatre Nurses” went home for the day. I am angry, but suddenly i’m furious as well, and that feels much better.
