Day 6. 40 pages, 16,538 words.
Toop, rather unexpectedly, was up all night coughing and – at about 01:00 – coughing so much that she puked all over her pyjamas and bedclothes, precipitating a laundry round and a screaming fit, for parents and baby respectively.
As such, I fell back into bed and went “fuck it” and turned off my alarm clock, thus sleeping until 07:30 when Mrs. Hatboy’s alarm went off and she had to get ready for work. At which point I helped get the kids in the car, and stumbled off to work myself.
Not feeling particularly well-rested, since from 01:00 to 07:30 every time Wump coughed I was back awake with a surge of is-my-kid-puking-on-her-clothes-or-possibly-down-her-own-throat panic, but I’m here. And the upshot is that I haven’t really had much time to do anything today. No time for writing, although I have a few things almost-done.
Now I have a meeting to attend.
