Listening to: not (am listening out for sounds of throwing up, aka mopping of face needed)
Reading: Kate Walker, Kept for Her Baby (another of Kate’s trademark emotional reads – full of passion and depth)
It really is Lurgy Central around here. I’ve had DH off for two days with a gastric bug (stupid man has gone back to work today, even though he's not really well enough - which means he'll be sick all weekend, sigh); and then school rang this morning asking me to to collect son as he’s thrown up everywhere. Take washing up bowl with me just in case (luckily not needed), pick him up, send him upstairs to change into PJs while I cover sofa with sheet and then bring down pile of pillows and the fleecy blanket, install him in front of a film he likes with said bowl and a glass of cool water for sipping, and keep sound on so can hear if he needs me.
And yes, I still have my evil cough (throat semi-sore but from coughing, not lurgy).
This lot has 11 days to be gone (and daughter absolutely can NOT pick up any of the lurgies in the meantime - we both need to be fit for London).
And I have 7 days until deadline.
Am so glad am female, so can multi-task...
