An Explanation

Well, hi to you all! This is a very quick post to thank those of you who have asked after us, and to explain my absence.

Charlie has been ill for over four weeks. He has had various high temperatures, including one of over 104 (40C). He has had conjunctivitis and a bad cold, with a very nasty cough. And two days ago he went down with some kind of sickness bug. He has had a few days in between these illnesses, but not many. We have also been a bit ill, with a really rubbish virus, which had me in bed with a high temperature last week. I'm half recovered from that, but as I type, Nick is throwing up, upstairs. He got the sickness bug this evening. Great! So, now I'm waiting to catch The Bug as well. There's something eerie about just waiting for it!

Usually we have had quite healthful winters. I just don't know what has happened. It's not as though we live on fastfood etc. Must go now, to check on Charlie and see how Nick is.

I will check in again soon. Hope you are all keeping well.

  9. Oooo - poor you lot! Hope these few sunny days we have had have helped to lift your spirits. If its any consolation, the Nursery has been hit by stomach bugs, rampant conjunctivitis, chest infections and Chicken pox. Its these wet and warm weather conditions I think! Thinking of you Princess Alice. Summer is on its way!

  13. Blimey! What bad luck... I really hope you all get better and stay better asap.

    I suppose it's a bit much to ask if you've done any knitting?

  14. Oh Alice!!! I hope that you, Nick, Charlie feel much better soon. That virus and bug sounds completely awful, and I know you and Nick must feel helpless with poor Charlie being so sick. Sending healing thoughts your way...

  15. So sorry to hear you've been having such a tough time. Poor Charlie. But hopefully all these bugs are building up his immune system for the future - though that's not much comfort now.
    I've missed you too. Lots of good wishes.

  18. Oh, you poor things. All of you. It's bad enough having a sick husband; a sick child must be truly dreadful. I hope whatever it was disappears quickly and never, ever returns.

  20. You need to dose yourself up with some hot lemon and honey (mixed with hot water) I always feel much better after that so not just an old wives tale! Hope you're all better soon and wrapped up in your beard to keep warm! Take care!
