Going viral

I have simply never known such a year for illness in this house. It seems that one child or another has been ill since Christmas, there have been very few school weeks that both of them have completed in tandem. The eleven year ol
d suffered a virus for several weeks and finally the robust eight year old came down with a temperature last week. One week later she is still running a temperature. The doctor tells me it's viral.

And she kindly shared her germs. With both The Technical Advisor and I. No prizes for guessing which of us is suffering most. I think I am turning the other side today, my viral rash has appeared, it makes me look rather odd but does generally mean that I am finally getting the better of the germs.

Roll on Easter holidays is all I can say. This family needs R & R and chocolate.

I have a lot of work to do and things are going very slowly. The craft fair date is marching towards me and I think there may be some late nights ahead, but I will not let those darned germs get the better of me. Let's just hope that the viral rash has subsided by next week, it may very well put shoppers off! I did manage to add those cheery shopper bags to the Handmade at Poshyarns shop today, it took way too much technical wrestling let me tell you.

Children... such germ-laden generous little creatures..... Get well quickly, all of you. My mother would have prescribed a large bottle of tonic - her favourite was Minadex, but anything nasty-tasting would do in a pinch.

Ugh, get better soon. My sinuses are telling me I have yet another cold, just a day after the last cough finally cleared. At least there's no temperature so far.

It has been a season of sickness here too.

It feels continuous at the moment.

Blooming lurgies. Let's just hope our immune systems will all be super tip top....eventually.

Hope the Spring brings you better health. My husband has just had man-flu so i can guess which of you 'suffered' the most!

Hope you are all feeling better soon. The last two weeks around here have been sickly too. We need some warm weather so we can open the windows and air this house out!
