This week your host is Helen over at Just a Normal Mummy. Now, a small word of warning: don’t go there if you can’t handle square-words, because she uses them a lot! But then that WallyBubba she’s raising over there sounds like she would drive poor Maria VonTrapp to the gin 😉
Last week I told you how the Bug was poorly. Thankfully he’s a lot better, but the inconsiderate little creature has only gone and passed his cough and sore throat on to me! I’m less grumpy than fiery when I’m ill, so EVERYONE has been in a lot of trouble this week!
Mummy refuses to be goaded, saying that what I really need is sleep. But you know, it’s difficult to sleep when every swallow feels like a feather boa going down your throat; and when you finally do nod off you wake up coughing a week’s worth of half-melted Haribo’s out of your lungs!
Sleep – love it or hate it: So no, sleep is not for me. Not for me normally, and not for me when I’m ill. It has been well-documented that I’m a fan of late-night reading, and I indulge to the extent that Mummy has seen fit to remove every single piece of reading material from my room at bedtime. Not even a magazine.
Posters and nail-polish: So when she discovered me still awake last night with a torch she was flummoxed. She had no idea what I could have been doing. You see Mummy, I still have a few tricks up my sleeve. You know those posters of Jessie J and One Direction you let me blu-tack to my wall. There are articles about nail polish on the back of those. You’d be surprised how interesting nail polish can be when you’re trying to stay awake…
