I am here to tell you

March 31, 2009

That my Tuesday prediction was spot on!

Rowan was ill through the night.. coughing and temperature and complaining of headaches and the like.

It was clear by 1am that she wasn’t going to nursery today.

At 7am BN woke her up only to find that she was completely uncovered, only wearing the vest and shorts we’d put her to bed in and was totally and utterly boiling.


Well she came to work with me of course like the awful parent I am.

Ill in bed.. At work...

This would be the back ‘feature wall’ of my office in Aubergine… and that? That would be my ill daughter and her bedclothes in front of it.

She finally gave in at twenty past one and slept for 2 and a half hours. She was pale and pasty all day, red rimmed eyes and complaining of aches and pains. Achy arm, achy legs and ‘hurty tummy’…

What you can’t see here is that just to the right of her is the laptop set up so she can watch DVDs and slob about all day watching her favourite films? she did!
She milked it for all it was worth.. not to say that she wasn’t ill because she clearly was but boy oh boy did she let me know it.

Tiredness talked most of the day and she was a sweet handful.. I say sweet because to be fair to her she really behaved impeccably considering how bored she must have been once the novelty wore off.

So…. Tuesday predictions came true but then I did have a head start… who thinks that Wednesdays will be two in a row??

Let’s HOPE not!!!

    Poor thing.
    Am thinking you need to stop predicting things – or at least predict good things. Can you predict me coming into money or something?

    @Vic – well I could try? I think everything is worth a try, surely? 🙂

    @Merry – in a good way? OR in the ‘you are also pale and pasty and ill looking all the time’ way?!?

    @SCM – BN wants to know if you can promise one for the next baby.. if .. err ….. there were ever to be a next baby – which I’m not sayin there is!
