I've been feeling like I'm coming down with something this afternoon, so my kids have had this incredibly boring Mum.
When they asked "Mum can we go out" and I answered with "No" they questioned me:
"But why Mum?"
"Because Mum feels sick and just wants it to be 6pm so you can go to bed"
At least I was honest ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
