when nk unleashes the doodles to find eggies
th’other kids swoop in
they know where they all are
oh no
its all going wrong
just like i sing in that song
that eggy that i hid
that they wanted to find
but all they found were other kids
where the eggies used to be
so we got about 10 boys all aged about 10 to 12
swamping our egg day
evie is beside herself
and storms off
aurora is more enterprising
shes gotta basket fulla eggies
shes already counting up her bux
and picturin the toys she gonna get
nk running round tryin to keep evie interested
ok ok
we gonna have another egg hunt
an auxillary hunt
nk gonna hide em this time
those effing boys watch again
and swoop in to find all eggies
chaos reigns

nk and i play a game called kubb
a swedish game where you throw batons
at wooden blocks
we play against mah bro jlk n his mate matt
this is a very zen game
ole sk has inherited olde joycie bennetts (my mums)
feel for spatial relationships
i musta admit nk no slouch either
we win 2 games
but jlks friend comes good at the end
and we lose the last game
i heartily recommend this game to anyone
its avalable in the us cos someone i know got one
its good for mild exercise
and is great for all ages
(will you listen to me now….)
anyway we finish the game
oh no

aurora is languishing on a bench
lookin like death warmed up
i dont believe it
she got tonsilitis
it comes outta nowhere
her throat all pus-ey
her tonsils swollen up
her face all grey
a temp of a million etc
oh god off to the quacks with her
gee this being a father lark
kinda hard on ya, isnt it
i go home with evie
still grumbling about the eggies
baby bouncer still grumbling
cos nk ran off to doctors without a proper feed
ok i go home
karin calls with elli at the hospital in stockholm
elli on five different painkillers
all hooked up to machines

elli i know ya not good darlin
yes daddy im very good
i realise shes trying to stop me worrying

karin tells me ellis had a little bleeding
in her spine
doctors divided if shes needs another operation
i cant believe this is happening
karin sounds so tired and hollow
elli is being so brave n positive…
