Well, what a week this last week has been! Things had been going well for a while and I guess we'd got used to it. However, that changed last week ...
By about 2pm, after she'd had a fairly long sleep, she woke up and seemed much brighter. She hopped down from my lap and was chatting, playing and asking for some juice. What a relief, it was so good to see her feeling a bit better.
Just before 10pm I got a call from Claire to say she had started being sick too. There was no way she was going to manage on her own so I packed a bag and headed round to help look after the children. I did the night feeds and got up with the girls in the morning.
And another one of Megan, just because she's cute :o)Claire was happy to go home again that evening and I told her to phone if she needed anything.
So, Monday night after dinner Emily says she's feeling queasy. I had felt the same myself but thought it might just be because I'd had a bit more milk than normal (I have an intolerance). Emily was sick before bedtime and decided to have an earlier night. I thought that was a good idea myself and headed off to bed myself. Jon said he's sleep in the spare room and let me get a decent night's sleep. Ha ha!! By morning Hugh, Emily and I had all been sick and by Monday afternoon Jon had joined us. So, Emily's been off school since Tuesday and I can honestly say that today was the closest to normal I've felt since then. Let's hope that's the last of it.
Here's to us all continuing with good health now. On the plus side, my Project Life album is right up to date! I really must take some photos sometime to share. I also realised I never got round to posting my December Daily - feels a bit late for that now though ;o)
