Morning all! Sorry for disappearing over the weekend, haven't caught up, is everyone ok? How you doing FAQ?

DH went to A+E on Friday evening and had his arm x-rayed and it's not broken, but he's badly sprained the ligaments. sad
He's trying to rest it and keep dosed up on the painkillers, but feels rotten because he can't really help me much with DS and the house.
