An Accident and Learning Lessons – Week 2 of Summer Holidays

Those of you who follow my Instagram already know the news. Last Monday I spent the day in A&E (Accident & Emergency) with my son who busted his knee. He was playing soccer with his cousins, tripped and landed knee first onto concrete. And well, the concrete won.


This accident is how we began week two of our summer holiday. Week one we spent going to the beach, playing outside and soaking in the lovely Irish heatwave we are having. Week two was spent at doctors and on the couch. It was the longest week ever. As I type this I honestly can’t believe that it was this day last week that we were in A&E. It feels like a month ago. Our summer plans have gone out the window and it’s been a worrying and exhausting week.
