One year, I’ll get through it all without any trips to the hospital…
Sorry for the quietness folks, but Indigo got sick. Quite significantly. Turns out that someone wasn’t very happy about the LEP infiltrating the fairy medicine deliveries and decided to poison my daughter as payback. She’s stable right now but we had a scary weekend with her being on a multitude of medicine, vomiting frequently and not being able to stay conscious for more than half an hour or so. Even more worrying is that the hospital still don’t know what it is that’s poisoned her- fortunately her magic is doing a lot of healing for her but we’re still not out of the woods yet.
I’ll try to keep you guys updated but for the moment please keep your fingers crossed for our little girl. She’s a tough old thing, we can only pray she keeps on fighting.

Okay, update time!

I did promise I would let tumblr know when I could about current secret missions I’ve been involved in. Turns out being a major doesn’t completely remove you from the battle lines! Basically my recon team have been tracking a number of shipments being made to above ground with the view of finding the target of this shipment before shutting it down.

Well we found the target and it turns out we’ve got a new human to worry about. One who has been receiving, of all things, fairy medicine used for curing wing rashes….So the reason the kiddos were off with the Butlers was because Trouble had to be on high alert while my team went up to have a nosy around. And while my team did that, I went to see Artemis to discuss possible reasons why an ex-chef from Boston would want such things.

Anyway, turns out he thought he was getting new ingredients for his vegetarian cookbook testing, which begs the question why someone down here has been planting fairy medicine in this guys food and whether this is an isolated incident. Currently we don’t know the answer to those questions so please watch out for what you’re eating at the moment, just in case (this particular medicine will make you critically ill, it’s definitely not for eating!).

Be safe mud people!

Can we all agree that Holly looks flipping beautiful when she’s leading a training session for cadets? Nobody loves her job like she does, seriously.

Holly: Seven and a half hours to save the world. Isn’t there some law that says we get twenty-four?
Artemis: I don't think Opal pays much attention to laws.

Got my baby girl’s school photo today, isn’t she gorgeous? She’s sticking tight in her class at the moment which means that elf-development wise she’s still hovering around the eight-year-old mark, which is totally fine with us parents! Especially when her behaviour record is getting better by the day, now she is enrolled in all her dozens of different clubs and classes :)
Anyway, customary proud Mama Short post- enjoy!

About to make dinner, time to find out what the Little Kelps like to eat! :)

Genuinely concerned that I’m going to come back them up later and you’re not going to let me have them back ;) Glad they’re not terrorising you though!
