What a sorry lot...

We're not well today...

I have a headcold and aches, Luey woke during the night with a fever and aching legs that Dave had to rub for him to feel better, though Bryn seems fine atm, he was definitely restless last night with what I assumed at the time was fluid running down the back of his nose and throat - his nose isn't running today though, so maybe I was wrong... Dave has been unwell all week but is getting better now and Erik seems ok...

Dave wanted to take today of work (he's the nursemaid in this house and quite frankly he is better at it than I am, especially when I'm also not feeling 100%), but today is only his second day at the new job, so I told him he had to go to work and I'd muddle through...

I'll get the boys to take a nap, and get Bryn down at the same time hopefully...

I had all these plans of cleaning up the house today (I want to get it back to its pre-Dave-not-working state, I'm sure he thinks he doesn't really contribute to the mess around here, but seriously, it's like having 4 little boys in the house, not three. Yeah, he does the dishes and the occassional load of washing, and I really appreciate that because I LOATHE dishes really, but he is hopeless at putting stuff away when he's used it and he has this compulsive need to STACK stuff in piles around the house...)... I started on putting the washing away, but seriously I just don't know how much I'll get done today - maybe once the boys are asleep?

*Update 11.50am

Bliss! All three boys are asleep! Erik isn't sick so he'll probably only sleep an hour. Bryn had a restless night, so he might sleep two hours. Luey will easily sleep three, maybe even four...

Poor little Luey, he's not well. He was due for a top up of Neurofen at about 10.30am and I plum forgot, by about 11am he was getting stroppy and easily upset, and Erik wasn't helping matters by surrepticiously teasing him, grrrr... Luey didn't eat his lunch, so I baggied it for him, in hopes he'll eat it later - he doesn't eat much as it is, so when he's sick his appetite just disappears altogether, but we'll see this afternoon, he has to be REALLY sick to turn down yogurt.
