There are many challenges when a girl is sick during the night
- not being sick myself, in sympathy
- finding clean bedding
- waking up at all
- holding hair back from the pale, boking, face
Recently I was faced with an unusual challenge. Spurs Fan was stripping the bed, Girl1 was cleaning her teeth and Girl2 was trying to sleep amidst the chaos. I was standing there, empty handed and task free, puzzled.
Me: ‘What is it?’
SF: ‘What do you mean?’
Me: ‘What is the sick?’
SF: ‘sausages ‘ (statement heavily laden with bafflement)
At 2am, as awake as is possible, with the glasses on, I can’t recognise sausages. That I had cooked. And eaten. 8 hours earlier.
Brain fog, eh?
Things are worse than I thought.
