Family pulls together in crisis
But, "like the Royal Engineers", (as my Dad said, quite bizarrely..) they swung into action when needed. (Is that what Royal Engineers do..? I've never known any. Oh wait, maybe my Dad was one in his National Service. Hmm. Well, he didn't swing into action this time, though he did bring us some potatoes.)
The baby was fed, clothed, entertained and kept safe and relatively clean. When I finally surfaced last night I saw that dishes and clothes had been washed and dried, and there were maths workbooks out on the dining table. Impressive! They've done a great job and I'm very glad they had the time and the inclination to do it, otherwise I'd have been stuck - the downside to single parenting.
This morning I'm [half] joking that it's nice to see I'm finally dispensible and that I'll be off for that trek across the Andes any time now, then. Just as soon as I can keep some food down. Actually, I'm just working towards Lyddie's playdate this afternoon and hoping we get that far. I'm giving it as long as possible and eating porrige.. here's hoping I'm fit to drive the car by 3pm!
No more looking at a computer screen and trying to type though. It's not helping.
