Sickness lurks around the corner – just when you least expect it.

Why is it that I have to get sick, just when there is so much to do and not enough time to rest and relax? I have had a temperature for the last two days at around 38.5 to 39.2 degrees Celsius. My body aches and my throat is raw from continual coughing. I have hot and cold shivers and I am sick of sucking on butter methols or vicks vapour drops and can’t wait for this all to be over.

Thankfully the children have managed to avoid it all, so far. They have also been great about going about their own learning and looking after each other while mum just manages to get on with what needs to be done. The washing is mounting up, the dishes have again become a pile on the kitchen bench. I guess it is now time to stop moping around and get stuck into cleaning while I have a few minutes where I feel a little better..

Better be going now…. Lets hope that tomorrow is a new and brighter day!
