Nè playing mind games ?
She had tooth ache in Gordons Bay and after the doc gave anti-biotics I let her sleep with me that nite and G slept with the kids.

We came back and since then every nite we've got "tooth" ache. She's going to Wits soon to have them fixed under anestetic (sp?) - I give her panado but she goes on and on the whole nite. Last nite I eventually took her bedding and made a bed on the carpet next to my bed she slept there for a while and then took all to her bedroom and continued the whole nite. When I got up exhausted this morning I said GOOD LUCK to sissie coz Ne's in a mood....G phoned me just now Ne was fine didnt act or cry when she was dressed or hair done or went to bus - just her normal friendly self ?

HUH ?

Is she playing me ?
