We did attempt to play in the garden but after 10 seconds the little man and I gave each other very telling looks and decided it was much too cold to enjoy the garden. I can't even say that I compensated for not having taken him out, I didn't. I made him suffer through a day of pigging out on the sofa wrapped in a blanket watching recordings of Raa Raa the noisy lion and The Real Housewives of Atlanta. We didn't read books, we didn't sing songs, we didn't paint or play and he was so tired he didn't ask to do those things as he usually does, he didn't even attempt to empty the kitchen cupboards or pull out all the printing paper.
Hopefully soon we will be back to our normal selves and can enjoy the world again.
