This morning the house is very quiet. Alys is still asleep and both Lyra and Vega are not here. They are with their friends, having had a sleepover last night.
It is remarkable really, for so many reasons.
Firstly, our friend Beccy was prepared to have Vega and administer all her medication.
Secondly, how did it happen that Vega is already so big she can go out and have sleepovers?!
And lastly, I just feel so normal. This is just so wonderfully normal. Bog standard, of the shelf, predictable kids summer holiday behaviour. Last year we had plenty of sleepovers at the hospital, this year Vega has a sleepover with her friend.
I like it.
