Sunday Expressions: Kip

Well I have noticed that my last two Sunday Expressions have been slight downers.  Nobody wants to focus on the collywobbles or be a damp squib.

So this week's expression is "kip".

As I was in bed for two days this week, I had plenty of time to catch up on Season 3 of Call the Midwife.  And by catch up I mean I viewed almost the entire season from start to finish.  Chummy, for reasons I won't reveal, is feeling quite low and so her husband fixes her tea, a hot water bottle and orders her on a kip routine.

A kip can mean some sleep, a lie down, or a place to take a lie down.  I had two day's worth of kip routine and was back to work by Friday.

What's your kip routine?


  1. I was looking up kip because of the same episode of call the midwife. LoL found your post. Glad someone else likes it as much as I do.

  2. Hi Robyn! Thanks for your comment. I have to admit that I've missed out on the latest seasons. I did read all of her memoirs on which the episodes are based. If you haven't tried the books, you should - they provide a lot of interesting details about the post-war period.
