When Sickness Strikes

I have to say that there is NOTHING, absolutely nothing worse than being poorly and still having to look after children. Yet another thing you cant appreciate until you have kids. I have spent a large chunk of the weekend in bed feeling dizzy, tired and a bit odd and now I have a coldy thing. The only remedy which appears to work is a large glass of cola. Of course, it’s something that I have most probably caught off the children who seem to be able to wake up at 5:30 and run around till 7:30pm without so much as a moments rest.

So, having children requires superhuman strength and power. Why did no-one tell me this? I guess if this gem was passed on, no-one would have kids. The thing with illness is that all potential help also vanishes as people don’t want to expose themselves to potential germs. Its all a bit of a nightmare. Suggestions gratefully received, on a postcard, you might not want to come near…

    I remember a holiday in Ireland when both Jane and I had vile food poisoning – we could barely move and yet we had the kids to look after. We took it in turns to sit with them between wretching and running to the loo. Urgh …… Horrible.

    Aww, TOTALLY know how you feel! Us ladies must really have super powers! We manage to look after our little ones when we are ill. Though I cant help wonder why the men get to lay in bed and be looked after when they are ill? Are we too nice for our own good? Ahwel, we get on with it through sickness and the rest! I do really swear by multi-vitamins though, one a day keeps illness at bay! And if I
