Even on my LJ interestingly.

The live action movie version was just on tv. I’ve never been a Thunderbirds fan, I think I may have watched exactly one episode in my life. And Bill Paxton? Not an actor! But it wasn’t a bad kiddie flick, and it was nice to switch my brain off for a while, given that I had planned to go to bed at 7.30 to try to catch up on missed sleep from last night. Pleasant enough way to waste some time.
And if I’d gone to bed, I would only have been woken up an hour later by sick girl with 38.3 temp and hideous cough. Poor little chicken. She’s back in bed now, will see if I can grab a couple of hours myself.
And just to add to the fun? My throat is getting sore…
shows up with burning torches, pitchforks and dip
tries to pick up Phantom Hitchhikers
devours the entire neighbourhood’s cutlery
puts fake eyeballs in your brains
This is about what I feel like some days
Oh, did I mention? BOTH kids are ill tonight. Dunno what with. Miss 2 has been a bit off all week, but I thought it might have been some big teeth coming through. Master Nearly 5 has been quite tired, but otherwise fine. Today I get a phone call at work at 2.30 to come collect the boy. He’s hot, tired and headachy. Less than half an hour later (I was on the way to get her anyway) I get a call from HER kindy, saying her temp is high and she’s lethargic and sooky.
Both of them had temps of over 39 degrees this afternoon. And that’s ON the drugs! Cool bath/shower, very quiet evening. Missy has been in bed since about 5.30, young man just gone (after a video lying on the lounge). Will see what the night brings…
They’ve both eaten well today, and are happy to keep fluids up, so I’m hoping it’s nothing major. Always worry about high temps though. And there has been chicken pox going around…
