At daycare this morning, one of the lovely teachers whom I hadn’t seen in a few days greeted me and asked how I was doing, whether I had been unwell.

“Well, yes,” I said, “I’ve had a cough and some sinus trouble, but it’s clearing up thanks.  Nothing serious!  You know how it is at this time of year.”

“Oh,” she smiled, “Babess told me you were in hospital!”

Apparently she had spun a story about Mummy having a sore tummy and a sore throat and “Mummy’s sick and she go doctor at da hosstipal”.

Amused, I turned to Babess and raised an eyebrow.  “Worried about me, were you?”

She smiled, snuggled in and gave me a kiss.
