Charlie started Beavers on Thursday. It has been a long time coming - he has had his name on the waiting list for over 12 months, but the day finally arrived.
He had a brilliant time, looking all grown up in his little Beaver Uniform.
Unfortunately, his arthritis has reared its ugly head again. His knee is now the size of a small football.
Visited his consultant yesterday. Another steroid injection needs to take place - which is really upsetting, but no parent likes to see their kids in pain, and Charlie is in so much pain at the moment. He has become rather tearful over the last few days, especially when he starts to remember the last injection and how much it hurt.
It also looks like he will be going onto permanent medication for his arthritis - something I am not too keen on, but if it helps him lead a normal life, then bring it on.
I will keep you updated on his progress. No matter how much pain my little boy is in, he always has a cheeky smile on his face - what a superstar.

Well the kids are back at school and everything has returned to normal - well as normal as it gets in this house.
Me and Neil managed to sneak a weekend in Oxford last weekend (without the kids). Kids were dropped off at my Mums and we headed for Oxford for a couple of nights.
What a wonderful and relaxing weekend we had. Oxford is such a beautiful place, our hotel was only 5 minutes out of the city centre. The weather was amazing, which always makes a big difference.
Shopping, sight seeing, relaxing, drinking beer and eating yummy food - what more could one ask for:
|We visited the Botanic Gardens - very pretty|
|Down by the river|
|Autumn is on its way|
|Christ Church College|
|The Eagle and Child - "Lewis" has been filmed here|
We had to go in and try out the beer
|A fab weekend - cant wait to do it again soon|
Thank you Neil, I had a wonderful time
