Emily and Phoebe

Monday, January 08, 2007


Things Emily was fretting about in bed last night that prevented her from falling asleep:

1) What had happened to her maths exercise book. She couldn't find it. (Problem resolved. Her friend Constantinos had it.)
2) Whether she had done all her homework. (It turned out she had.)
3) Whether her teacher would tell her off today. (He didn't.)
4) Whether I had left milk and cookies for Father Christmas and a carrot for Rudolph. (I told her I had. Yes, I know, it's a little late to be worrying about such things, but this is Emily we're talking about. And anyway, it's not like Santa failed to appear or anything.)
5) Whether she would be able to stop worrying about all the above so that she could fall asleep.
