Flu bugs and fevers and sickies oh my!






Poor old Senior Management's been under the weather these last few days. My youngest daughter caught some kind of flu-like bug, which knocked her for six at the weekend, but not before she was kind enough to share the germs with the rest of the family.
Sick face smiley

Thanks to the resilience of youth, my daughter recovered enough to go back to school today. I got a mild dose of the sickies, but I'm fine now. Poor old Senior Management had a far worse time of it. She seems a little better this morning, but if she doesn't get back on her feet soon, I may have to resort to drastic measures, like doing the washing up*.


*I'm kidding, of course. If it got that bad, I'd fetch my son home from college to do them.

There's nothing quite like a caring child who shares absolutely everything with you.

Hope you all feel better soon.

Thanks, Ed. Just one more reason why I plan to go and live with them when I'm 90, and exact my revenge :)

I just have to ask this. . .
Why aren't you helping her all the time?

Or were you being funny?

Why aren't you helping her all the time?

'Tis the other way around, Glynis. I'm the 'housewife' in the family :)

Too sick to do the dishes? Next thing she'll refuse to write your books for you! Disgraceful!

Now that's just silly, Peadar. Everyone knows it's really my old gran who writes the books :P

Oh, I was only joking. Of course I know it's your gran who writes 'em!

I'd fetch my son home from college to do them. I bet he'd love to come home and bring all his laundry! ;)


I've heard the flu is already rampaging this year. My daughter says it's already going through her school, too. I managed to avoid it last year. Here's hoping for this winter... (and feel better soon!)

What, no automated washing derring-doos?

I'm kind of, sort of, getting over the sick myself, which is why I've been up for about 24, because I was close to sleeping, or sleeping quite a lot, over the previous week with the sick. :P

Our dishwasher broke down and it took over a month for the spare part needed to turn up. I'm happy to say it's now fixed :)

Hallelujah for small favors, right?
