We've had the Flu... #WotW

Last weeks Word of the Week was Sick.....This weeks word isn't much better....

This week my Word of the Week is:
This is going to mostly be a woe is me post but this is how the week has gone....

Over the weekend Stu started with a really nasty cough.....Then he had a temperature, then achy bones, then the shivers and now he's on the mend....On Tuesday morning I woke up far too early coughing.....Oh joy! Since then I have coughed so much my throat is sore and so are my ribs and back...There have been times when I have made myself sick from coughing....I am shivery one minute and hot the next....Yesterday the snot started....Ugh! Coughing and sneezing at the same time is no fun at all....I have been losing my voice and the kids think this is just brilliant....lol I have been drinking plenty of water which is making me go to the toilet a lot...Usually just when I have got warm and comfy....Ugh! I really haven't been this ill for years....

Becky went to get her braces fixed on Monday and they decided to tighten them too....She was in pain so there was a lot of moaning from her....Especially when I said she had to go straight to school after her appointment. They did say she will probably have them off by the end of the year so that's a good thing....Becky came in from school last night with a sore throat and aching. By the time she went to bed she was coughing and had a temperature....She's staying off school today....I know how rough I have felt so sending her would just be cruel....

I think the only person not to moan or be ill this week has been Ellie....She is as fit as a fiddle.

It hasn't all been bad though....

Last Friday I won a World Book Day costume over on Twitter and I chose the Where's Wenda costume for Ellie! She LOVED it! I did too....She looked so cute! I think she had the best costume in her class....hehehe

Easter is coming! I had a PTA meeting at school about organising a Easter egg hunt....It's going to be fab.....We also have been sent a fab box of Easter crafts from Baker Ross that needs doing soon so that will be something for us to do over the weekend!

British Gas text me to say they needed to speak to me about my account.....I rang them and it turns out they didn't have a clue why I received the message.....They did put us on a priority list in case our electricity ever goes off, they fix ours before those not on the list because of my girls heart defects. I personally think I just confused them by paying the bill a week early....hehehe

It's Mothers day on Sunday....Stu can't get the day off work but has said the girls and him have a few surprises for me....I hope all you mothers have a wonderful day.....Sending big hugs to those who have lost children and those who's mothers are no longer with us.

  7. It sounds like your house has been was bad as ours for illness, this year hasn't really started well for us at all. As I'm writing this Darren is currently in bed and from your post I think we can safely say he has the flu. He is never sick and it feels like he is getting something every week at the moment. Lets hope we all get better sooner rather than later x
