This week has been a bit of a write off. Something always goes wrong in half term doesn’t it?
I was working at a show at the weekend and didn’t get home until 8 on Sunday evening. When I came home I found the wee man lying on the sofa, not feeling too good. From that evening my family have been dropping like flies.
On Monday my husband phoned me at work asking if I could leave half an hour early as he too was starting to feel ill. There has been a bit of a flu like bug going around and our family had finally succumbed to it, and the rate at which it was spreading through the house, I knew it wouldn’t be long until I caught it too.
That’s why my word of the week this week is…
Caitlin fell ill on Tuesday, and my body eventually gave in on Thursday. As I write this, my whole boy is covered in goosebumps and my skin feels sore to touch, I’m shivering and my head is absolutely bouncing! I’m just about ready to take some lemsips and drag myself to bed.
It is bloody typical that we would fall ill during half term, meaning we couldn’t get out and enjoy a few days off together. The kids were back to school today, which gave me a bit of peace to lie on the sofa and feel sorry for myself. It’s so hard trying to look after children while you are not feeling good, so I was grateful for those few hours. I imagine tomorrow will be much of the same, putting my feet up and doing very little.
I hope you have all had a good week and enjoy your weekend, I’m away to hibernate until Monday!
