Since Fri night I have been sick with a fluey/gastro thing, hence missing a great party and spending the weekend lying down, well as much as you can with 4 kids. I feel a bit better today and with Simon away for the week on search and rescue training, it was good timing.
The positive thing about being sick (I know I am grasping at straws), is that it gives the kids an opportunity to do a bit more work around the house and do extra chores they wouldn't normally do.
The girls were asked to get the washing off the line and they went the extra mile and put all the pegs together in a row on the one wire. I am not looking forward to the next time I put the washing on the line, it will take twice as long having to grab all those pegs but the girls were so proud of themselves that I am not going to spoil it for them.
Thanks Simon for looking after me even though you were on night shift. x
Thanks Hallie for rubbing my arm with concern, even if it did give me carpet burn. x
Thanks Sarra for feeding Jonty breakfast and giving him a bath and reading the other 2 a story at night, until it was your turn to be sick the next night. x
Thanks Oliver for taking advantage of me being sick and eating all the goodies in the cupboard because you knew I wouldn't see or care. x
Thanks Jonty for having an extra long sleep in the day. x
What a lovely family I have.
PS Sorry I missed you dropping in to see me Chels. I didn't even know you had dropped by until after I got up and Sarra showed me the note. :(
