A Sick Mother’s Day
I am one lucky mumma!
If you’ve been following along with Clairey Hewitt’s Blog Everyday in May you might (or might not) have noticed I fell off the wagon in the middle of last week. I woke during the night last Tuesday with the worst, WORST sore throat I’ve ever suffered.
After two and a half nights of no sleep, barely being able to eat or swallow and with nothing taking the edge off my pain I hightailed it to the doctors while James dealt with prospective buyers inspecting the house and entertained Jasper.
The doc took one look and said “Yes, that looks … horrible.” gave me scripts for penicillin and Panadine Forte and sent me to have a blood test to confirm if it was tonsillitis or glandular fever (still waiting).
I was pretty unhappy that I was headed into my Mother’s Day weekend feeling so bad and went to bed before 7 on Friday night.
Luckily a little penicillin and codeine goes a long way and we were able to spend Mother’s Day in Canberra with my mum and youngest brother and, I think it’s up there with the best. I was able to sleep in, James made bacon and eggs and we just hung out. Looking through photos, watching House Rules, chatting and just being. I was spoilt with gorgeous gifts and Mum made us a gorgeous roast lamb for lunch before we headed home. It was kind of perfect for a sickie.
I’ve come home pretty shattered and my throat is still not playing nice but I’m so glad we made the trip.
What did you do for Mother’s Day?
Have you kept on the Blog everyday in May bandwagon?
