Word Of The Week – Flu

This week our word of the week is


as I have been out for the count this week with Flu.

I don’t think I can remember a time when I have felt this bad. I started to feel unwell last week on my birthday and I just continued to get worse as the week went on.

I was really looking forward to Darren’s four days off and being able to get out and about with the children this week but the reality of this week has been very different. Darren spent his time off looking after me and the children and the furthest the children ventured out was to Tesco’s. They also had to take that in turns as we can only take both children out at the same time when we all go out together. Poor Little E normally got the short straw and had to stay at home as Ethan has been climbing the walls most days, and that isn’t a figure of speech!

It does actually feel like a very long week this week and I lost all track of time, well more than normal. I’m still not 100% but I feel more like I have a cold at the moment, which is so much better than feeling like I had been in a very bad fight the day before.

We actually got out of the house yesterday but it was more because we had to rather than because I felt up to it. Ethan had a respite day yesterday, which was much-needed and we went shopping as we had to return something. We even stopped and had some lunch with Little E which was a lovely treat and I think she really enjoyed it. It was nice having some time with her on her own.

I’m really hoping I feel 100% soon so that I can enjoy the rest of the Easter break and get out of the house a bit more.
