Disasters

The day before one has an early morning shift is not the best time to wonder if your alarm clock is broken because it was still going off at 11:30 when you'd set it for 10:30 (and thought you'd turned it off before leaving the house at 10.) Either it started ringing at 11:30 or had gone on ringing for an hour, neither of which is ideal. Have set phone instead, and hope it works.

All the pale-skinned babies look like rabbits; the rest are just little snot machines. This has been the sickliest winter I can remember, but then my memory is short. Two years ago we had nine out of ten babies down with the rotavirus du jour.
