I was going to blog this morning about my trip up north last week to see the girls but youngest is not well and i'm totally preoccupied by that.
Last night I phoned and she said she had been ill since Monday with what I presume to be the winter vomiting bug. She hadn't told me Wednesday when we talked as she hadn't wanted to worry me. She was very upset and all I wanted to do was get in the car and drive three hours to sit with her and make her a hot water bottle and make sure she drinks enough.......She said her flat mates are really looking after her, I've checked today and she feels a little better......but what a horrible bloody feeling to be so far away . I do relish the freedom you get having older children but its probably much more of a worry to me now when they are away than when they were tucked up in bed and in sight....if you know what I mean.
