It’s official. I actually have children with the weakest immune systems – they pick up every bug and virus available to them. In the week before Christmas, Eva came down with a stomach bug, which you may remember, had her screaming I think I’m having a baby! This scuppered my chances of getting my planned Christmas shopping finished and had us stuck in the house filling and re-filling hot water bottles and watching every single Christmas film ever made, ever, in the history of the world.
Now, this week, I had hopes of hitting the sales and purchasing a couple of bargains. Maybe a pair of jeans, as my current ones have split at the crotch. Or a new top. Maybe even a new bra. No such luck, as for the last 2 days, Olivia has had a sickness bug where she can’t even keep a drop of water down, poor dab. So, again, we are under house arrest. We have decorated jewelry boxes, made paper flowers, built a Lego castle, created a play-doh three course meal and Eva is putting the finishing touches to her Aquabeads wall clock. No to fresh air, but yes to creative development.
Olivia is curled up on sofa with a ‘sick bowl’ beside her.
I am off to Dettol and bleach every single surface in the house, lest there be something else for these children to catch.
