Just when you think she couldn't pack any more into an already busy year, Amelie's just qualified as a midwife...

To be honest, it was a lot easier than I expected. She just printed out the certificate from the CBeebies website. I'm not sure it's a hundred per cent legit, but it should be enough to fool them on the maternity ward. Apparently there's one born every minute.

And on that subject, it seems I was a fool to think that Amelie might stay in St Leonards for a couple of days and let me get on with a raft of important jobs. We had an e-mail from my Mum yesterday afternoon to say that our daughter wasn't feeling well and wanted her Mummy. There was no mention of me, so I was tempted to ask if I could swap places with her and head straight for their spare bedroom, but in the end Amelie just came home in the evening.

She hasn't been right for a couple of weeks now, but in addition to seeing the doctor once, she's had numerous days when she's apparently felt fine... only to go downhill in an instant and spend the day in bed. She was fine on Christmas Day and Boxing Day, but quite unwell the day after with a high temperature and no appetite, only to perk up again on Friday and Saturday. Yesterday morning she was happily peddling her wares across Hastings...

... but by the afternoon she was in tears, and feeling so unwell she chose to put herself to bed. My Mum brought her home in the evening...

... and today she's seemed fine. Which is frustrating as we've now made her another doctor's appointment for Thursday, and at this rate they're going to think we're paranoid parents with a passion for time-wasting. I did my best to make her ill again by dragging her around an overcrowded Asda this morning, and leading her through the pouring rain in a force nine gale, but not even a downpour could dampen her spirits. I think she's just being awkward.

I think she has a split personality at the moment.  One minute she's crying for Mummy - the next she's telling Mummy she doesn't like her any more (because she's been told off!)
