Today I had grand plans. We had a garage sale (at a friend's place) on the weekend and I planned to take some bags of left-overs to the op shop and have a browse for an outfit to wear to a themed party: Op Shop Formal this weekend. I planned to walk a few laps around the lake and do some sewing as well.
Instead I have been caring for a sick child, stripping two beds of vomity sheets, mopping a feverish brow and making chicken soup, with fresh ginger to settle a tummy. I have mangaged to fold several weeks worth of washing, sweep the path and wash loads of sheets, mattress protectors and even a pillow. Thankfully it is sunny and I have hung it all outside.
The ballerina is sleeping so I am writing this post before adding the noodles to the soup. I am grateful that I am at home today so that I can care for my girl. Being a working mum with a sick child (no matter how old) is one of the greatest challenges that life can throw your way.Life is always good though....when you have cake and crochet!
