When I was at the nursery today buying the strawberries that are no longer strawberries I was talking to the nursery lady about fruit/veges in pots and she also suggested ballerina apple trees which are smaller versions but which produce full size fruit but you have to have 2 trees for them to cross polinate and produce fruit and one of the varieties names is Charlotte. I think that's a sign - they've gone on the wish list for my birthday, I think one from each little person would be a nice thing.
In kidlet news Charlotte is booked in for the first week in September for her surgery. I'm scared because she is having a general anaesthetic but I know it needs to be done so now it's just chatting to her about what is going to happy and why. She has asked if Libby (her cabbage patch doll) is allowed to come with her so that Libby doesn't get 'heartbroken; (her terms!) while she is away. The surgeon seemed to be really good and had a great rapport with Charlotte so I'm hoping all will go well. I think the hardest part will be the fasting - she is allowed a light juice and toast brekky before 7am and then nothing until the surgery which I have a feeling she won't like. It has to be done and I'm hoping she'll be much better after it's all done. Fingers crossed.
