I miss being able to call in sick.
If there is one thing I really really miss about my old child free life it is not being able to call in sick when you are feeling rough. The swine flu last week wiped me out and then I developed a nasty chest infection on top of that so I am totally floored. However I cannot take to my bed and watch DVDs from under the warmth of my duvet with only occasional forrays downstairs to raid the kitchen for goodies.
Instead I have to dose up, get up and get on with everything. The children still need feeding, ferrying to and from Preschool (well Phoebe anyway), entertaining, nappy changing, bum wiping, rescuing from danger, letting out of the kitchen when they have locked themselves in, the laundry still needs doing, the tidying up needs doing, fights need breaking up etc etc and so on and so forth.
I am 24hrs into Antibiotics so am feeling a bit better, well my chest is I now have a churning stomach from them but hey ho... can't have everything I suppose. At least I am not coughing up a lung every 5 minutes now! 3 more days and I should be back on top again... thankfully just in time to go to Greece for 2 weeks of Sun, Sea and Childcare (one of the biggest upsides of going to stay with family!). Of course that means I have to pack first lol!
