Sore throats and lurgies
'Oh me oh my' I ache all over, feel so tired I could sleep for a week and it feels like someone has hit me on the back of the head with a shovel.
'Oh' for tempting fate!
Just one week was all I asked for. Just one week where no one was ill - a bit of normality was all I asked and last week my prayers were answered.
I had my week and it was a mighty fine one. Full of sunshine, blue skies and not so much as one sniffle between all of us. A week of boring old routine and it felt good.
Now the littlest Boo has 'the most' horrendous cough that has seen her go though a whole packet of ice pops in twenty four hours and I ache like the first Winter flu has decided to settle on my bones - I feel old and weary.
For every push there is a pull, give has take and karma is just plain old karma at the end of the day - good or bad.
And now I'm feeling like my payment is up for being granted one week of reprieve from the dreaded lurgy.
And with all that is swimming around in my head all I can think about at this very moment in time is............be very careful what you wish for.
