So this winter I was all smug thinking: I'm on maternity leave. That means NOT mixing with 300+ snotty/snuffly/coughing teenagers every week. I am going to be so flipping healthy! I am going to be able to forgo the ludicrous and probably futile consumption of truckloads of echinacea! I will skip blithely through the winter months like a...oh. You're funny.
Have the worst headcold, with a cough and sore sinuses and earache and the works. And I think that maybe dealing with teenagers while feeling rotten is perhaps not as demanding as dealing with actual human poo and someone who is constantly hungry and whose only food-source is me. And I cannot believe I beat week 5, only to be beaten by this!
So - any tips to kick me out of my little pity party and cheer me the merry hell up very welcome indeed!
