"The most important thing when ill is to never lose heart."


I feel like the walking dead today, I'm showing all the signs of flu mixed with severe hay fever and to top it off because of it I only got 3 hours sleep last night which is pretty grim. I like to think that the boys come first and I go above and beyond to make them as happy as I can but despite this, on these rare occasions that I am ill I feel so guilty.

I want to be play fighting and running about but I just don't have it in me today, I just want to sit on my bum and comfort eat. For once I am actually counting down the minutes until bedtime, (that's hoping that I don't end up on the sofa again tonight).

I honestly didn't even feel like I had it in me to write this post. But as I sat in the supermarket car park (because I feel to rough to go in) I thought 'I haven't written one of my waiting in the car posts for a while' and this lazy half hour with my feet up on the dash seemed like the perfect time to take advantage of that.


I will do my best to perk up for the boys and if I do manage to muster up some energy from somewhere I hope they are fully prepared for our wrestle to actually be me lay flat on the floor (like one of those bear rugs in a cabin) while the boys use me as a climbing frame.

I wrote the above post yesterday when i was feeling particularly sorry for myself, today i am still feeling awful but ive not really had 5 minutes to think about how i am feeling as Opeie has high temperatures and Seth has been to the Dr's today and he has Tonsillitis again and has been very ill (poor little things). 

Its amazing how things change, your children take president and anything you have going on yourself is pushed to the side, it makes you realise what is important. Its also a kick up that bum, (sitting down comfort eating) to get on with things and stop moping around.

Being a dad is AMAZING!!!
