*brave little soldier...*

Anja had her 'pre'-school boosters today - not sure why they're so called, since she's at school already, but they're the ones they have when they're 4 - MMR in one arm, and polio/tetanus/meningitis C/whooping cough in the other arm. She didn't even flinch! I was SO impressed. The nurse gave her a sweet and chatted to Anja about her footballing ambitions. As soon as we were home, she changed into her new Chelsea strip, very kindly donated by my friend Sue. She is in seventh heaven with this:

anja chelsea babe


I am on a mission to find her a football team, but it seems that most of our local ones won't take them 'til they're 5. She's very keen to practice, and I'm afraid I just don't cut the mustard for a kick around in the back garden. She wants to play with "real footballers"...

So brave, I almost flake out during a blood test.

Thankfully, Amelia has gone off footie as me and G are complete divvies about the sport and know nothing at all xxx

i cry with paper cuts which are accidents, let alone needles which are intended!
She sooooooooooooooo suits that strip, a proper wee tomboy with girly accents about her - she is such a love
