Ann I asked a friend that works in her school a few weeks ago if anything going round as she looked pale to me and she said about the sickness and one girl had over a week off with it seems to be hitting them hard this year.

Zo just cant understand how it can come out of both ends at the same time lol

And Hubby still not home so cant go to sorting office now til tomorrow .

It seems to be rife in many schools and hospitals and, according to the papers is earlier than usual this winter.

Zo cant keep anything down not even water bless her. She is the one of the three of mine that seems to get sickness a lot dont know why.

Hopefully she will bounce back, she has realised from the last time she was ill that she likes sitting in a warm bath having the water trickled over her back so have done that today which then sent her to sleep for an hour which is whats best for her.

At least little Amelia is eating solids sure no milk wont hurt her for a bit bless her.

Isn't it awful when kids get ill at this time of year! Hope she's soon better.


AnninGlos Report 11 Dec 2012 15:05

As long as amelia is able to drink water I am sure missing the milk won't matter too much. Milk may be a bit rich for her little tummy.

Got little un off with sickness and diareheo (spel) been up throughtout night with her . Now I was meant to go and pick up some parcels from sorting office but cant now and as Hubby is over at my mum and dads painting their dining room ready for family gathering on Boxing Day he cant either so who wants to volunteer to brave the cold and go for me please. Oh and if you want to bank 2 tiny cheques that I found hiding on the table that would be good as well.

Right just off to starch another apron ready for next bout of nursing better drink my cuppa before she wakes again.
