It hasn’t been the best week in our house, with yet another virus lasting the full week.
Here’s our week in pictures…
Day 78 – Sunday 19th March – I really dislike Sundays and find them miserable. I wanted to not find today miserable, but my daughter came home for a sleepover very tired and with an injured nose and my younger son appears to have gone down with another virus. Miserable Sunday it is then! I’m cheating a bit with this photo of red phone boxes in Cheltenham as I took it yesterday, but I only posted it on Instagram today!
Day 79 – Monday 20th March – my younger son was off school with a bad headache, sore throat, cough and generally feeling exhausted. It’s deja vu from two months ago. My eldest had an interview, or ‘informal discussion’ as they call it for the grammar school he wants to go to. And I wore this yellow coat in the rain. I’ve had it for years and I still don’t know if I actually like it. I’m sure I look a weirdo in it, but I never buy new clothes until my old ones have got holes in them.
Day 80 – Tuesday 21st March – my son was still off school ill and was worse today, with a high temperature. I was quite worried about him for a while. My dermatologist has come up with a solution for my acne/ rosacea flare-up – 20mg of Roaccutane for a week, then wean by 5mg a week until I’m back down to 5mg again. So far, so good!
Day 81 – Wednesday 22nd March – a really difficult day, due to a car breakdown. You can read all about it here. My eldest did his final GCSE music performance exam at school. GCSE music has been a rather challenging experience for him (I would strongly recommend people not to take it!), but he seems to coming through it a bit now.
Day 82 – Thursday 23rd March – my son is still off school, but he seemed slightly better to me today. I’m pleased to say my car was back from the garage before dance lessons and it didn’t cost too much to repair either!
Day 83 – Friday 24th March – so we made it to a full week off school for my son. It’s not good, but these things happen. He really hasn’t been well enough at all. My daughter had to mix and match a whacky outfit for Comic Relief, so she went with a summer and winter theme.
Day 84 – Saturday 25th March – my daughter ran her first Parkrun in months and I beat my PB again! Sadly I forgot my phone, so no photos. I had to take an emergency daffodil photo instead. My son was almost back to normal.
