This morning I was woken up again (second time this week) at 5.30am by the car across the road starting up. The car has a slipping fan belt so makes that really high pitched squeaky noise. Because it’s a really ‘well maintained’ car it takes a little while to warm up so the driver sits there and revs it for a while, all the while the fan belt keeps squeaking away. All this means I’m awake one hour earlier than my alarm is set for.
Not long after this JJ came into my room complaining that he was sick and wanted some medicine. He quite often does this so I just told him to go back to bed. He kept on whinging that he wasn’t well and that I should give him some medicine. I told him that if he was sick he wouldn’t be able to go to the zoo today. His childcare had a trip to the zoo planned which JJ has been looking forward to for some time.
I got up as normal, had my shower, got JJ to get dressed and went to the oval to walk Monty. JJ wasn’t his usual self and was still complaining of a stomach ache so I gave him some Panadol just in case that might help. He stayed in the car when we got to the oval – he normally runs around as much as the dogs do. When I got back to the car after doing three laps he’d thrown up his Panadol. Okay, the stomach ache was real then.
Unfortunately he’s missed out on the zoo trip. I don’t think it’s quite sunk in yet that he has missed out because he’s been too busy throwing up in the bucket to worry about it. He will come good this afternoon probably and then I’ll hear about it.
