Let me tell you it is no laughing matter when a family of 8 get sick. The first cold of the season hit us and the little girls and I were hit hardest. In an effort to contain the germs they all came to sleep in my room at one end of the house while the rest of the family stayed at the other end. It was like the quarantine ward in a hospital with everyone lined up for medicine.
(Not quite like this but it sure felt like it.)
I have learnt that my twins talk to each other in their sleep. If there is just one of them in the room, they don’t talk in their sleep, but when both are in there they chat away. I guess its just one of those fascinating ‘twin things’. Needless to say there was not a lot of sleeping going on. The actual sniffle part was not so bad it was the teasy cough that lingered on. With four of us barking away at night we made quite a racket.
Ashley had a neurosurgery review this week which saw us sitting in the hospital waiting room for three hours. If you ever want to build up your children’s immune system then this is the place to do it – a veritable hot bed of germs! The next day – gastro!
Slight technical problem here. You see, because we are at the end of our packing before we move out, I had packed all the extra sheets and towels. Obviously the universe was having a huge joke at my expense. I ended up with more laundry than any one woman should ever have to cope with alone.
Anyway enough complaining for one post! The good news is that we are all well again and I can get back to writing my blog – which I have really missed.
It is a lovely Sunday morning here. We have just had a light shower of rain and now the sun is shining through the clouds. The world smells fresh and there’s bound to be a rainbow out there somewhere. Hope your day finds you safe and well.
