First day of the school Easter break today, and with superb timing Little Miss Princess has got the lurgy. There seems to be two versions going around...the adult one where you have a sore throat and temperature for a couple of days followed by two weeks of coughing your lungs up and feeling knackered all the time (that will be me and Hubby) and the child version that comes with pukes. Fortunately LMP is a very neat puker and is quite happy to use the nearest dustbin, bowl or toilet. (All parents should train their kids from about 18 months old in this skill, IMHO.) So while it's going to be a sad thing for her to be ill in the holiday, at least it's not too much hassle for me.
(Yeah, I'm a mean mummy. Lowish on overfussy sympathy, very high on practicality. She's No3 child, remember?? Dragged up rather than carefully nurtured! Somehow she's turning out at least as well balanced as her brother, lol.)
And on the knitting front...well, I seem to be currently obsessed with the Forest Canopy Shawl. It's a nice pattern, with just enough rhythym in the rows to keep you interested but simple enough to be able to spot a miscount. I'll be on the border in another repeat or two.
