...was spent looking after Swappy* (rhymes with HAPPY).
A star-tipped swizzle stick was waved and I was declared SUPER Mummy.
My charge was this lovely Two Little Banshees caterpillar who "is just a little baby" and needed feeding, burping and carrying around all day.
Apparently Swappy didn't need as many naps as I suggested he might, and he wasn't comfortable near the computer.
What does a Super-Mummy do when she has a looming deadline...? Burp and feed a soft toy caterpillar, make a batch of cupcakes with the four-year-old (Swappy was napping), do the weekly grocery shopping and umpteen loads of washing.... and try to remember to breathe.
Cest le vie.
*I think the wee one spends too much time in Ikea. Her toys all have names like Swappy, Flakker, Sippo...
