Wednesday 16 May 2012: Guilt
Oh dear god! So yesterday we left our friends in Manchester and drove to see a university friend of mine in Leeds (who has a 5 week old baby. My womb is aching now!). They are in the process of renovating their house which means a door was off its hinges, leaning against the doorframe. I knew this and stupidly forgot, leaving Claudia to play unattended upstairs.
Down falls the door.
Once I'd wiped away the blood I discovered she'd bitten the inside of her cheek and had a surprisingly deep cut on her face, the poor mite. Only small, but pretty deep.
Cue bribery: Tropical world (butterflies, snakes, lizards etc), a £16 fluffy snake, an ice cream and a couple of chocolate digestives later and my guilt is somewhat assuaged. More importantly, she doesn't seem bothered by it at all, but still.
Mummy fail. Whoops!
We had a lovely trip visiting people but I am glad to be back home tonight. Very tired after an awful lot of driving!
