Ellie had the lurgy. #WotW

This week my Word of the Week is:



I didn't want to write about Ellie being poorly....It's boring but I have no other word. It has dominated our week.

Poor Ellie has been so ill....She started with a temperature last Wednesday night....It went on to be a cold and a sicky bug....The doctors said a viral infection. It has meant Stu and I have had very little sleep....For 4 nights Ellie was up at least every hour needing to be sick, a drink, the toilet or just a cuddle.

On Monday night she was sobbing because she didn't want to be poorly for Stu's birthday....She had improved a bit and we went out to buy him a birthday cake but it wiped her out for the afternoon and she slept on and off on the sofa for hours...

Stu did have a fab birthday....We were going to get a takeaway but with Ellie being poorly we decided just to make some party food at home. Sausage rolls, mini pizzas, chicken bits and lots of cake!

If Ellie is poorly she usually shakes it off within a day, this was the poorliest she has been in her whole life! Even when she had her heart surgery she wasn't this ill. 

This week was the anniversary of my girls having their heart surgery....On the 19th of August 7 years ago Becky had, had her surgery and was on the ward and Ellie was in intensive care after having hers....I can still remember so much like it was yesterday.....Thankfully by the end of today 7 years ago we were over the worst and I had both my girls back on the ward arguing over having my attention. hehehe

Today we have lots to do....I have all my normal Friday jobs like blitzing the house and ordering the shopping....Stu is going to finish painting the wall in the back yard. I want it done for Ellie's birthday beach party and the girls and I have a couple of product reviews to do which we haven't been able to do during the week with Ellie being so poorly....Then if we have time we're going to do some crafts!

  1. Poor Ellie, it does sound like she's been really poorly, I hope she's feeling better now x Glad Stu had a good birthday. I know what it's like having anniversaries of surgery, it must have been a real scary time, especially with both of them at the same time x

  4. Oh, poor Ellie, sounds like it was a nasty bug. Glad she's on the up and Stu had a good birthday. How far the girls have come in seven years then, I bet it is all so vivid still. Best of luck with getting your jobs done today and enjoy that crafting! Thanks for sharing with #WotW x
