The View From Here

Wow, what a day. I took my hot water bottle to bed last night feeling pretty crap. When I awoke, it was on. Dave took the morning off work to look after the kids. I looked after the bed. When Dave had to head in to the office for some meetings my Dad stepped in.

Bummer of a day to be sick too, Jo and I were going to take the kids to the Play School live show and tonight was supposed to be ladies night.

I have watched the sun move through our bedroom today, while I haven't felt great, it has been nice to stop and rest. This evening the Lady Baby and I are napping and listening to Beth Orton's 'Trailer Park' while the Young Man snores in his room.



What did you do today while you weren't feeling crap?

  1. I am sorry to say (because you missed a great show!) that I took my little boy to play school. Mind you, a whole day in bed sounds good to me too!! :-) But I do hope you are feeling better soon. x

  6. Sorry to hear you're feeling crap. If it's any consolation, the most exciting thing I did today was attend the K-Mart toy sale. I'm not sure what's worse.

    ...surely that precious face is just what the doctor ordered? Hope you're feeling better soon xx

  7. Naw, I hope tomorrow sees you waking healthy and in better spirits :)

    We had a pretty lax day today, the rain kept us indoors.

  8. Feel better soon. My hubby had a wisdom tooth removed so I was the one looking after everyone. Light a candle, have a cup of tea and snuggle with a comfy pillow.

  13. you poor love. i applaud your man and mourn ladies night for you. i meandered around an op shop and time evaporated for me. in the afternoon, the two year old snuck up behind me and stuck his finger in my bum crack while i sat in a parent-teacher interview for the big boy.

  15. It's tough when you're sick... but at least we get to realise that the world actually doesn't stop when we do. And that TV is a godsend at times! Just relax and go with it. x

  16. Being sick is the pits isn't it! I hope you feel better soon, and that the rest of your crew continue to feel well :)

    I spent today continuing to learn how to be a mum... this time last week I wasn't one! What a week it's been... the best.
