Last weekend I decided that as Emily was much better we would have a lovely weekend doing lots of things. Then Louis woke up on Saturday night and crept into bed with a fever. He woke on Sunday morning with a sore throat and headache and was very, very poorly.
Later that morning, Julian got stung by a bee and had an allergic reaction - so it was off to doctors, chemists and home again where he rested. In the late afternoon he complained of feeling cold and tired. Yep, he had a fever too.
So, my week has consisted of doing the absolute basics in the house and lots of nursing. Julian, much to his disgust, was fit for school on Thursday, but Louis only really started to get better yesterday.
Guess who woke up this morning with a sore throat and a headache????
And the question that begs to be asked - "Who is going to nurse me?????"
On to better things though. I did managed to do a bit more quilting.
I've actually managed to sew my binding on to the quilt and now I am hand stitching - which may take a couple of nights but I actually find I like doing it. I never realised how soothing hand sewing is.
Before they got sick, we managed to get out to the shops as both the boys had a bit of money to spend. Julian bought himself some Indiana Jones Lego which he's had much fun with. He's also become Indiana Jones himself, and is forever jumping off things and swinging on things and dodging imaginary obstacles. I'm not sure if the furniture is going to survive.
Louis got himself a beautiful red scooter which should do him until he can get his much longed for, very fast, red mazda. The good news is that Julian is now allowed to use his scooter again. The bad news is that Louis insists on scooting all the time - both inside and outside the house. I'm forever getting my feet run over by the thing and tripping over it too.
Well, I'm off to convalesce - perhaps with a nice cup of coffee and a freshly baked muffin?
Hope you all have a good week.
