We were on our way to the Rogiet train station when we had this conversation.
G: Mummy, you had to go to the surgery and Daddy and I went shopping.
Me: Oh yes…
G: And when you were not well, did you eat a ladybug?
Me: What? Why did I eat a ladybug?
G: You were not well – you had a ladybug.
Then it occurs to me that we have been telling Georgia that when people are ill they have a bug…I suppose by natural extension it means they have swallowed a ladybug, of course!
