I woke up this morning with that falling over middle-ear thing again. I hope that hot liquid in my mouth will make it go away. Thankfully Wren has been happy to play handpuppets for an hour. Hand-puppets can be played lying down and with your eyes shut. I am Red Dinosaur and Wren is kitty, soft seal, noisy beetle and their various accessories.
Now it is time to wade out into the darkness and rain (stepping on snails and pushing aside the tall grasses that have fallen over with the weight of water) to collect the newspaper.
"I want breakfast TERRIBLY BADLY" says Wren as I procrastinate and rub my jaw.
