Cabin Fever

Is there anything less enjoyable than spending your weekend trapped in the house with sick kids? I often get a bit over being so busy all the time and not having a free day here and there, but after five days with small unwell sad children, I've discovered I actually like the crazy business, who would have thought! We spent Thursday Friday and the weekend like this. 
TV, blankies, juice, I was so bored of being in the house I started doing weird housework stuff like cleaning fans, washing doonas and folding all the clean washing in the house I could find. My floor is still not clean and my kitchen was a mess, but man are my fans are clean! 

These two both have tonsillitis, and even after 5 days of antibiotics Charlie is still not eating and has the whinge factor turned to maximum. 

So while the rest of the tribe are zonked, I hung out with the kid, tea, toast and little boys in onsies, that's the best part of winter right there. 

Seriously I love feetie PJ's, it's the novelty of wearing them very little and having them off by 8am or you end up sweaty. 

Apricot jam, yum. 

breakfast with cheeky face while everyone else had their zombie faces on in front of the TV. He appreciated my apricot jam. 

While the boys watched horrible histories and cars 2 for the squillioneth time I rearranged nick knacks, dusted them (amazing!) and chopped up some cheap fake flowers that have been floating around our stuff for years. I love the yellow and pink together, it's a little bit of joy. 

Sundays used to mean baking day for me but I fell out of the habit, so even though I suspected I'd only have one kid at school I made The Organised Housewife's 100 biscuits recipe. I made about 1/3 and froze the rest of the mix to be pulled out and baked later in the week I know if there is biscuits ready made they wont last! I added some caramel drinking chocolate to this batch and they are delish. 

Ah sick face, this is how we've spent the last few nights, curled up on the couch or in bed waiting for the last dose of Nurofen to kick in so we can both get back to sleep. I had forgotten what it was like to be up with kids during the night, hopefully I'll be back into it by October!


  1. Glad to see you again! Hope the tribe is well again soon! I'm a huge fan of footie pj's too :)

    1. Aww thanks hun! They are all getting better thank heavens! x

  2. Naaaaw, poor house of sickness! Sending love lady. And vitamin c or something. Poor dudes, tonsillitis SUCKS.

    1. Sucks so hard, I now know how my poor mother felt every winter, I used to get it every year and if I complained like my tribe do I feel bad for her!

  3. Sucks about the sickness. We've had a sick little boy in our house the last few days, and it is no fun! Hope all your boys are better by now!
