Half man, half robot


It’s been an odd week for Alex. After the triumph of Emma’s birthday party at the weekend, where he won a certificate for his full-on, virtuoso air guitar performance (not to mention a lorryload of fatherly pride), yesterday he had to go in to Addenbrooke’s to have both his legs plastered up for a fortnight. This is in an attempt to correct a slight muscular deficiency in the lower legs which has been leading to his feet progressively turning over more. Apparently they’ve had some success with this treatment, so fingers crossed. Meanwhile, he’s being spoiled rotten by everyone, of course.
