DD was off school again yesterday
Just about every joint seemed to be aching, even her jaw was crunching and clunking
She didn't even try to tackle the stairs until tea time, but she did manage some sleep, albeit broken.
I gave her 2 codeines before bed last night, she only agrees to take them when she is really bad.
Bless her, she tries to be a tough cookie, but some days it's like she's been hit with a lead brick!
Mazza, I'm a Val McDermid fan too
I agree that a good book is hard to put down, but DD always tries to settle first, or has a couple of hours then is wide awake again, she says reading just eases the middle of the night boredom!
I bought DD a matress topper and some new pillows at the weekend, the plan was to get them put on her bed for her yesterday, but she didn't want to move, so will try again today
