Colds, colds and colds again

For some reason the last 3 months have been punctuated by some kind of bug or another. I've had a host of colds and bugs, either typical "common cold" or stomach bugs. I seem to get one, it'll hang around for a week or so, then I'll have a clear week (2 if I'm lucky) then I get something else.

Had thought I was passed it, had been free from germs for a fortnight, until waking up on Saturday to the familiar tingle at the back of the nose/throat that signals something is on the way. Felt ok though so still went and did parkrun :)

Didn't feel so great yesterday and today this one has gone to my throat.

It's getting quite depressing!

The joys of having toddlers. Snot, puke, and have you encountered the delights of head lice yet? You will! Hope you feel better soon x


Thanks x

I actually think one of the twins caught it from me. I started with it Saturday morning, Saturday night he was a grotty as grotty can be and again last night, although he was mostly ok during the day yesterday.

I don't think the disturbed sleep of recent weeks (has gotten worse for some reason) is helping my cause.

Think I've had 3 hours in total since Saturday :(


Oh no you poor thing. I feel your pain. Kids, eh? We all thought it would be a great idea - I had such high expectations of how lovely it was all going to be and what a fantastic mother I would make .... that lasted until he was about 6 days old. I love him to bits now he's 15, and he makes me so proud sometimes, but we still have our moments ...


Sorry to hear that - it may be the same virus coming back for a second bite - I've heard of loads of people this winter who have struggled to shake things off. Take heart - It can't go on for ever!
