In our case, namely the Tonsillitis Monster and the Sock Monster.
Poor Helen has been stricken down with strep throat again, so is right back on antibiotics. She has been quite poorly today, bless her.
Abby is down with a streaming cold and chesty cough, so she is also home from school.
The Sock Monster has been at my socks; in four consecutive days, I have developed holes in one of each of the four pairs of socks I have worn, for no apparent reason and all of the pairs of socks were fine when I first put them on. Four days in a row !
That is bizarre...........
