As I got into the car, the husband arrives back, looking like death warmed up. He has flu. Terrific. I arrived at the school to see my daughter crying. She had a high temperature and looked rotten. So I also collected my son as I couldn't come back later. He wasn't overly impressed as he'd just sat down to play a chess match. My daughter eventually throws up later on in the evening whilst I'm checking on the hubster.
Later that night at 10pm buddy starts throwing up and screaming. He did this about 8 x in total and finally stopped at 2am. I changed 2 sheets, 4 sets of pyjamas, also got thrown up on because he decided pre-chucking up, it was essential that we hug. My daughter came out to say "I know why he's being sick I gave him a kiss goodnight." I was glad she improved as she's rarely ill and prior to her throwing up I was checking for signs of meningitis on the NHS website. She's so dramatic in normal circumstances that its very difficult to tell what level of pain she's in. I did think if she's got this much energy to scream and shout it can't be life threatening. That is my parent theory, by the way, for falls and such like. If they are screaming, in my opinion, they're okay. Its when they make no sound and are lifeless then its A&E time.
A friend took my son to school along with her 3 children. Although when he was leaving he mentioned the small fact that he hadn't slept due to all the noise. Later when I pick him up he looks awful, tells me he fell asleep in class and is still unwell today. Last night he was whimpering on the bathroom floor saying he couldn't walk! Our house is as sick as a small hospital.
Oh and whilst everyone appears to be a bit better, buddy threw up this morning over the husband who is moaning that if he were a horse he would be shot and various knacker's yard comments. A nice big dose of self-pity to throw into the mix. So to cut a very long story short I haven't exercised today, the food diary hasn't been written and a cheap nasty chocolate bar was consumed on Thursday evening in addition to some jaffa cakes.
