All the symbolism that the New Year has attatched to it is interesting too. Lots of new beginnings. New life. Diving right in. OK. Enough of the philosophical stuff. I think I only brought it up to distract you from the cold hard fact that I didn't really do any sewing yesterday (but that was last year, this year will be different!).
Okay, let's dive right in! Mr 7 had a tummy bug yesterday. He was most miserable. I don't think he remembers ever having one before. He asked me if I had ever had a tummy bug. I assured him that I had. In fact everyone has at some time. Then he said, "Then you know how much I hurt!". (He is male, afterall.) I spent the day ministering to his needs.
Mostly that meant sitting with him, looking at him. That was the only thing that made him feel better. I did manage to dip in the pool a couple of times because there were lots of other people here to "look" at him. The best at "looking" (apart from me, of course) is Mrs 23. She is such a good woman, she sat with this vomiting child for me even though she felt like vomiting herself! In the end it became too much for her, but I had managed to cool off a little in the pool. Yesterday was very hot. It was 42 degrees again. Apparently overnight we have had a weak change and the B.O.M. is only expecting a top of 38 degrees today. I'm not sure that they've got it right because it is already 38 degrees here! Anyway, enough of this. Back to the sewing!
