Christmas MUST be in the air!

I must remember to include this photo in my JYC2010!

Every Christmas without fail for the last 16 years we have had medicine bottles in the background on our family Christmas photographs!

Oh what a scary 24 hours! My 3 yr old has been poorly with a bad cough all week & started with a temperature on Friday after Nursery.. by yesterday afternoon he was not eating or drinking..
& I couldn't get his temp to come down.. why do toddlers not understand that being sponged down
will help?? In the end he got too sick to complain.. cutting a long story short we ended up in hospital last night
getting him checked out as his temp wouldn't budge from 40.7 which is 104!

He was allowed home after it was discovered he has a bad case of tonsillitis & is on 24 hour watch for dehydration.. thinking after a few doses on antibiotics he would be on the mend today but no..
when I gave him the Ab's he sicked it all back up in no time..

So, after no sleep last night.. we faced going back to the hospital today..

but I'm happy to say Tom is taking his medicine in half spoonfuls this afternoon.

Scary how little ones can go downhill so quickly.

Think all I want for Christmas is some sleep!


  1. Oh Gez loads of healing hugs sent to little Tom and some zzzzz for you sweetie. x x

  3. Oh poor Tom - and poor you - what a time you're having - sending you loads of hugs (wish I could be there to give them to you). I've just had a bit of a catch up with your crafting - fab as ever - and those pastels look lovely x

  4. Oh dear, poor Tom and poor you - hope he is on the mend now. Yes, children can get ill quickly. However, it is also true that they can recover just as quickly and be driving you to distraction in no time with their healthy exuberance! Hugs to both of you, Elizabeth.
