Hello Sweeties, I do hope you have had a lovely weekend. Finley has caught a throat virus that yesterday had more than 55 pupils off school and I am doing battle with a 39.6 degree temperature and a child who won’t take medicine at any cost. This has meant delirium and night terrors of the kind that last night had him accusing me of all manner of bad Mummy deeds, while declaring his name was Humphrey and insisting that there was a hole in his brain. Oh joy!

Today we are off to the Doctors so our terribly nice G.P can deliver a stern lecture on the perils of refusing a spoonful of Calpol and I can run into the supermarket to grab a stack of magazines to see me through another hysterical night. Kids eh! Who’d have em??

I’ll be back soon Housekeepers.x
