Carrying on caring on Mon 21st Oct 2013

By | October 21, 2013

The scenario that I don’t like has arrived..the carer falls ill.

This cold (or has it moved on from a cold? It took a week to get here properly) is now taking control with a vengeance; my voice is now a squeak, which is frustrating when dealing with everyday conversations and interaction with the children. D, in particular, likes to have the reassurance that I am listening when she’s chatting away, this is normally in the form of verbal acknowledgment from me and so she’s been questioning if I am listening and all I can do is squeak (painfully) back.

Coughing and squeezing with gusto too and hoping no-one else picks it up.

Despite their Mumma looking like a cross between Pierrot the clown and Rudoph the red-nosed reindeer, they were at school on time and we’ve stuck to routines tonight.

Both had good days, D greeted me with a run-up and a massive body-slam and T had after-school football and then training so he was a bouncy chap.

Tomorrow brings flu jabs (I doubt they’ll do me) and a parents evening for T.

Life goes on.

I hope everyone’s day has gone well, comments/RTs/shares as ever welcomed, thanks for reading Jx 😘

To be honest I think you’re a bit too unwell for the flu jab, are you sure it’s not mutated into a chest infection?

Hope you can get some rest of a sort today. Goes without saying you need to be well to keep the family together – wishing you rid of these germs xxx
