It's already Saturday in my part of the world. I didn't sleep well as usual so I came on here at 4am. had a browse, read my email and then made this.
I didn't know what to call it but the Overlay has Rackham's Fairy Queen in the corner so she could be paying a royal visit.
I spoke to my Grandson Richard last evening. His wife has been very poorly all the week and the children also. He had just returned from the doctors and it seems Ashton and Skyela both have Scarlet Fever. Poor kiddies. You hardly ever hear of it these days and it's not the terrible illness it used to be. With modern antibiotics they'll feel much better soon. I think they've had the worst part all week.
I had Scarlet Fever in 1940 when my Mother and I went to Maidstone to be near to where my Father was stationed. It was considered a very infectious illness and I was hospitalised for 6 weeks. My Mum was not allowed to visit me the whole time. I can remember the very large mixed ward and one little boy always jumping out of bed and running around but that's all I remember.
The toys I took in with me I was not allowed to bring home,Richard was horrified when I told him this. It must have been quite traumatic to me at 4 years old.
Good job I can't remember! LOL!
