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 old 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.
