Comfort Required

LeeLee got up this morning and said she felt unwell.

Off she was sent to school on the bus - we have been parents too long to fall for that TOO easily!

Anyway, at 8:11am the phone rang and a very weak voice told us that she had been sick and could she come home.

OK. We gave in, went and picked her up and sent her straight to bed with a bucket and a glass of water.

I woke her up three hours later to see how she was. Still feeling grim and wanting to go back to sleep.

OK.

A further three hours later I woke LeeLee up, made her a hot water and lemon/honey drink (she was awash with cold water she said!) and asked her if there was anything we could do to help.

She asked if she could come downstairs and snuggle on the sofa in the sitting room with us......

....and could she watch one of her favourite old Disney cartoon films with us both.

Sometimes nothing but good old fashioned home comforts are needed!
