Okay so the real Florence Nightingale isn’t really here – that would be a tad scary since she’ll have been dead for a hundred years this coming August but I am doing my best to channel her A grade nursing skills. Ms. M is sick, and so my creative space this week is filled with shitty nappies, loads and loads of washing and one very tired and clingy little girl. She feels miserable.
I initially thought that I’d sit this week out but then it occurred to me that being a mother at any time requires loads of creativity and even more so when a child is ill. So today my creative space is preoccupied with creative ways to encourage a sick child to eat and drink, to entertain her when everything makes her want to cry and to somehow get through the mountains of washing that are building up.
But for now… for these brief moments while she is finally sleeping after a horrific night, I’m going to travel the wonderful world of blogland and see what all you creative peeps have been up to.
Why don't you join me? I’ll meet you over at Kirsty’s.
