Sick

Landcroft House is poorly. As soon as the holidays approach, illness strikes. In the last fortnight we have had flu, chicken pox, a torn cruciate ligament and last night, the vomit bug arrived. Almost every party invite has been binned as we lie on the sofa, Rob with frozen peas on his knee, Scrap coated in calamine and me with a box of tissues and now a bucket. Still, at least by next week we'll be right as rain and ready for action. I hope.

I hope you can't catch it over the interwebnet.

Get well soon all of you.

You are not alone. It's making its way round our family like a ghastly relay.

You poor things - what bad luck.

Hope you are all better in time for Christmas and that the frozen peas and bucket can be safely put away ...

Sending soothing vibes from Nunhead and hope that you're all three fit for Christmas!

By the way, how is Rob managing to balance frozen peas on his knee?

How did you do your knee in Rob? Was it all your James Brown impersonations?

Most of these viruses and bacteria wotsits are alcohol intolerant. Get some hard booze down yer neck, and if it doesn't work you'll be too smashed to care/remember. That's my advice anyway...
