A-OK apart from a cracked ear.. just skin leakage August 10, 2009

Hello Poogie,

its all ok.  We have some cortisone cream and you’re going to live.  THe ear infection is not an ear infection at all but a painful and raw case of dry and probably mum-hormone related skin damage.

Not too much crying.  And the source of your irritability today has been established:  the sticky mess that came out your behind has made you feel a lot better.

erk for mum and dad though.  Your dad was on bum-clean duties, I did nappy scrubbing.  No dry-pailing for a mess like that.

love mum

    Dear Poog,
    Did you tell your mother that the word ‘poog’ apparently means something like ‘kiss’ in Irish and I reckon it has come down from the Irish ancestors via Grandad (your Great-Grandad) to me and hence you. So you are a little kiss.
    Love to you still tho’ I haven’t seen you in the flesh for quite a time owing to illness and your mother nicking out of a sat arvo with your dad to unspecified interesting out of house visiting places so we haven”t connected. I miss you and hope i am entirely well to cuddle you on Sunday coming when your Mum n Dad have hopes of going to a movie while I look after you. Better go now as it’s past midnight! V late for your old grandma.xxx
