Needing to get out Wednesday

What's on my desk this morning for WOYWW? A tip!
I've not been able to access it since Friday , as it's in our room and Daniel's been in bed ill with the flu. And the downstairs one is overflowing with items in need of mending and ironing. And 1/2 of the rest on both desks is dumped there by the kids. Fortunately this is a laptop, so I can use it elsewhere, when I get opportunity.

Got all 3 kids at home, Roo's recovering from the flu and TJ now has Chicken Pox. Will have to clear some space later for her to do some Christmas Cards etc. When I spoke to the teachers, Christmas Play rehearsals and Christmas Crafts are currently what they are doing in class. Little Tisha is miserable and clingy, I suspect she's not well either.

The brown cardboard box in the middle of the desk has our Family Christmas Cards in it. Some are for overseas and need posting this week. I also feel cooped up - not been out for nearly 6 weeks apart form school runs etc. No toddler groups or anything due to one child or another being quarantined or home schooled. Daniel is feeling like he might be able to watch the kids for an hour or so later today while I walk to town - I do hope so.


  1. Well at least you will have everyone well for Christmas if they have all the bugs now. Poor you not able to get out...it has not been the weather for it though.
    All get better soon...
    Take care!

  11. Oh Angela, it seems that mommies have to keep going no matter what. Like they say over here, when it rains, it pours. You'll be coming out of the valley soon, and hoping that your whole family will be well in due time. Three little munchkins all have my prayers and hugs, same for you and Daniel.

  18. Argh..it's so hard when it's a constant juggle...and I bet poor Daniel has been watching from bed feeling pretty guilty. Hope by now you've had some fresh air and down time, even just for a walk into town to get your head clear!
