NaNoWriMo Update

Well there's not much of an update. I started off really well on Thursday and even got some writing done on the bus to Dublin on Friday but since then there have been distractions...

Friday night, my Mum and I went to see Don McLean in the Olympia Theatre, Dublin. I will be writing a full review of it in the coming days. We even waited to meet him after. Very exciting!

Yesterday, I was only home from Dublin about half an hour when Beth came back from her Dad's. She was a little off colour and actually took a nap on the couch while I made dinner. Very unlike her. 

When she woke up she was shouting some weird things. She was running a mad temperature so was probably hallucinating. She was also complaining of really bad pain in her belly and 'headsford' (forehead). I rang the on call doctor who told me to bring her to the out of hours surgery straight away. I was terrified it was her appendix.

To make a long story short, she has a bad throat infection which is causing the pain in her belly. Doctor prescribed antibiotics. She'd a tough night last night. Woke up every few hours coughing, high temp and vomiting. 

Hopefully it'll pass with the medication!

I plan to catch up with the NaNoWriMo today and tomorrow and get back on track :-)


  1. Poor Beth! I hope she gets over it soon! At work, we've been wiping snotty noses from colds all week and one little 6 month old got a double ear infection.

    Hope you get some good writing done while she is resting!

    1. Aw that poor little 6 month old :-( Beth won't be going to creche tomorrow so another pj day.

      Just waiting for her to fall asleep here so I can fire up the laptop!

  2. It's always hard when the kiddos are sick. I hope she is feeling better now!

    1. She was all better but now has a cough again! Hopefully, she'll be grand for Christmas :-)
