The baby's ill! And she cried ALL last night. Because all the family - cousins, aunts, uncles - are squashed into this house, she is sharing our room with us. So we got absolutely no sleep at all. The doctor in the tiny village near us said she had a horrible virus. Her temperature is really high - quite scary really - and mine is none too great after lack of sleep and lots of family!!
I cycled further yesterday - very pleased with myself - but today had to spend the day languishing with the baby sleeping on me. Quite cuddly but not really conducive to meeting my new cycling target.
I've signed on to National Novel Writing Month - I have to write 50,000 words in November! Hmmm. About 1800 words a day. That sounds entirely feasible what with three small kids, fretting to do and the blog to write. And we're in Scotland till November 4th. So that's 4 days I can't see much writing getting done. But maybe I'll do it - sounds like a recipe for disappointment though.
Advent, day eleven...
