New DT!!

Firstly I want to say, I'm so sorry my post is a day late. We had an ambulance out to baby yesterday. He had a rash & they were concerned as a rash is now a symptom of Coronavirus, thankfully he was home with in 2 hours. He is fine, just gotta keep an eye on it, they think it was an allergic reaction to something, not sure what tho!
Anyhoos, in between rushing around sorting a bag for Katie to take with her for Harvey, I went a bit nuts whilst they were there, so the house was spotless by the time they got home!! I was pooped & in bed for about 630 lol!!
