I have to apologize to all for being absent for so long!! I had a bad dose of the flu that I nearly recovered from, then one by one, my four beautiful children all got assorted varieties of coughs, colds and flus, ( so they needed lots of attention and cuddles from Mummy!) I also got my flu back, so to say I was feeling a bit tired and worn out is a rather huge understatement!!
The good news is that the three eldest are almost totally better, only the youngest is still sick, he is only sick at night though with a choking croup-like cough, that gets really scary as he has trouble swallowing and breathing while he has the coughing fits, so I am not getting much sleep at the moment. With the amazing resilience of children, he is a bundle of energy during the day!! Why am I not??
