It’s been a really busy day today and I don’t feel as though my feet have touched the ground! This gorgeous little lady came and spent the day with me and DS because her parents were attending the high profile funeral of Lt. Col. Rupert Thorneloe, the CO of the 1st Battalion, Welsh Guards. Now, I’ve never looked after two small people on my own before so I was a wee bit apprehensive this morning. Luck was on my side because our house guest behaved beautifully all day (not counting the enormous poop she produced just after lunch!). DS showed he could be jealous, which caught me off guard. He’s used to playdates on a regular basis but there are always other mummies or carers present; he just isn’t used to having to share me! Our guest went home around teatime, when her mummy came and picked her up. Her mummy looked so awful and drained that I made her stay for a cup of tea and a sit down. She embarrassed me by telling me how wonderful I’d been in helping out but, you know what, I don’t think I did anything special today. Friends are supposed to help each other out, aren’t they?
