Last week my Eldest was off school all week and I had full-time nurse duties including, but not limited to vomit herding, medicine dispensing, and late night soothing.
He’s pretty much better now, but of course now I’m starting to sneeze, cough and ache in a way that even a dose of decongestants, paracetamol and ibuprofen is only reducing to a dull dis-ease.
I managed to sleep 11 hours last night (which is way better than the 3-5 hours a night I was getting), but I feel like I could sleep that again, already.
In short, I feel rubbish, and have a game to run tomorrow, so today will be spent doing as little as humanly possible in the hopes that rest will accelerate my immune response (it usually does). I am not writing another word until next week…
That is all.
