Finally...Celyn, The Mackerel & The Scary Baby

Once upon a time...

My friend and Scrappers Unlimited team member, Sue, is a superintendent radiographer in Cardiff and when I was telling her that I wanted to make Celyn an ABC scrapbook, she immediately said, "And X is for X-Ray!"

So, last Thursday (27 April) I drove up to her hospital with Celyn and we had a fantastic time seeing how an X-ray is taken. Of course we couldn't x-ray her, so we took one of her dolls and also (at Sue's suggestion) an unfilleted mackerel. Here we are getting them ready for x-raying.














Celyn then put the negative through a special machine that develops it (in layman's terms... which I am!)







And then we were able to view the results on the computer













And MAN that baby was scary! LOL You can see Celyn's not over excited about the results! But we were all a bit freaked by the baby (except my husband upon my return, as his first thoughts were, "That's so cool...it would make an excellent album cover!"). Sue also made JPEGs of the final results for me (love her) which I shall scrap for her album, along with these photos. She's such a cool friend (mwwwwaaaaah Sue!)

So that is the story of Celyn, the Mackerel and the Scary Baby. Goodnight children...goodnight.

Reminds me of the time when airport security put my daughter's Fizz (from the Tweenies) through the x ray machine. She was not happy !

You're very welcome!!! It was fab fun. The best bit was when I told the radiographers that 'my friend is coming with a dead fish'....

And apparently, actually, the best bit was "when you turned on my dolly Mummy!!" (the voice on the doll...she thought that was fantastic!! LOL)
