*cough cough* sigh

I have been ill, in case you were wondering about the bloggy silence. I got my just desserts for doubting whether SB was really ill last week: I came down with the EXACT same bug he had and it is horrible. Sort of sicky and don't-want-to-go-too-far-from-the-loo-ish and just-want-to-lie-in-bed-and-sigh-and-groan-in-an-exaggerated-fashion. Serves me right.

So my weekend was a wipeout (Friday was nice in a way, because although I was ill and stayed in bed most of the day, SB looked after me, bringing me water and going over the road to the shop to buy more milk when I decided I wanted Cheerios). I hauled myself back into work on Monday and today, and thanked heaven again that I now work part time. I could manage a half day but definitely would not have held out till 5pm.

What else? Oh, I took FB for his introductory drumming lesson last week and he LOVED it so now he owns his own drumsticks and a practice pad and I've just realised that by the end of this coming weekend I will have one son learning drums and another with a brand spanking new three quarter size electric guitar for his birthday. Add that to the Husband's fourteen or so guitars and assorted keyboards etc and I think I may have to move out. Anyone got a nice quiet cupboard under their stairs going free?

Nothing else to report so I am off to have some toast (to see if that will stay down) and attend to my offspring who have been very patiently waiting for me to finish this and take them to the bookshop like I promised.


  1. Earplugs. No kidding. My girls ran a jam session in our basement for a couple of years and I either went for a walk or blocked my ears. They had fun, though, awful as it was.

  2. Oh, sorry, forgot to wish you a speedy return to good health. Sounds like a horrid bug.

  3. Hope you're feeling better soon. Tea and toast sound like just the ticket for an iffy stomach.

  4. MILK?? When you're sick? Worst possible thing, not to mention - eewwww. And I'm sure Alison and I, between us, could organize a new life for you abroad when the rock stars get too much for you. Just let us know and we'll clear out our respective cupboards

  5. Tuc biscuits always make me better when I am poorly. So sorry you were unwell, that's a horrible feeling.

    I recommend earplugs, or headphones for the noise.

    What did you guys get at the bookshop? I am thinking of expanding the boys' library of books.

  6. XUP is right, you could move this side of the pond. I've a walk-in closet you could move into.

    But you'll have to make your own toast.

  7. Glad you're feeling better.

    Earplugs are cheap! ;)

  8. Drumming lesson? OMG woman are you MAD? Will the noise not drive you demented? At least on a guitar you can play MUSIC, but drumming?!

    Hope the lurgy is on its way out now though, and you're back on your feet soon :-)
