Still afloat here

Quick health update - Little Guy is over the chickenpox almost, no new spots and the old ones have scabbed over nicely - gross! sorry! But he's in a right grump this afternoon. His face is flushed so it looks like he's coming down with what Biggie has! That's right, now Biggie is home sick with a terrible chest infection. I'm up to my ears in sachets of medicine, dishing out cold drinks and washing the mountains of towels you seem to use when the kids are ill.

I suppose the boys have crash landed after the high of our holiday! It's naptime so I might be able to throw on a pot of soup then haul out the sewing machine.


  1. I just read chicken pox....glad though to hear he is on the mend. Awful scratching and irritable stuff.

    I hope to also get a chance to get the sewing machine luck with my terrible two!

  2. I hear you Naomi, some days it's a struggle but we get there in the end.

    Icecream with Hershey Ice Cap on top made Little guy perk up and Biggie felt great after French Toast :0 dinner!!
