One-Liner Wednesday – #1LinerWeds – Hot Water Bottle!

 

On days like these, God bless my hot water bottle!

I don’t function well in the cold. My whole body goes on go-slow! This photo, taken last night, shows me with my wonderful companion at night! I was ready to just go to bed because the cold was deep within me, but as soon as I got my feet warm, I felt ready to do all sorts of little jobs that I had been putting off!

Love me a good hot water bottle!

It’s Been a Cold Week!

We’ve had some really frosty weather here this week, you know, temperatures hitting below freezing.

Pretty icy ferns inside my car!!

I have had to scrape ice off the windscreen at least twice!

Now I am firmly a ‘spray with de-icer and scrape’ kinda girl, but my sis in law usually splashes lukewarm water over hers and is good to go. Her father is a car salesman with his won garage, and he swears by it.

So, on the second day, I thought ‘why not try it, and filled a bottle with warn water, and got ready to pour and leave with speed.

And this happened. The frost lay on the ground ‘deep and crisp and even’, it was -3.5 degrees celsius, and my windscreen was a sheet of ice!

Why?

Because no one told me I needed to actually stick the wipers on while pouring!

Spent another 10 minutes dislodging ice instead of frost off the windscreen instead!

Women drivers eh!!!

Sod’s Law (And A Last Minute Vote Appeal!)

It’s the last day of term.

Every teacher out there is tired.

7 weeks is a long stretch for anyone, kids and adults alike.

And I have to go and wake up with a cold.

Today.

The last day.

Typical!

I struggled into school, after dropping Lil Man off to his grandparents, and spent the whole day with a tissue box next to me.

It’s no fun trying to keep up with a whole bunch of 3-4 year olds, when all you want to do is give your nose a good blow! I felt like stuffing tissue up my nostrils…it’s not like I could breathe anyway!

Bu the absolute worst part? I am so considerate that I have left it until the last day to feel rotten, so I get to spend a week, which should be my break, feeling sorry for myself, and watching my nose get redder than Rudolph’s!

Hopefully, a couple of days in bed, doing not much, will help. I need to be better for Tuesday when the kids and I are planning to visit my Pops and Mum for a few days. I NEED that break too!

Why does this illness not strike mid-term? Actually, scratch that. Even if it did, I would feel too guilty to take days off! Many a time has passed where I have a migraine coming, or feel under the weather, but knowing I will leave my class understaffed, and not wanting to let anyone down, I drag myself in… inevitably using my own weekends to recuperate.

I’m not the only one. Many teachers feel the same. But what can you do?

Excuse me while I slather myself in Vicks, and replenish my dwindling tissue supply…

(feeling ever so sorry for myself right now!)

And while I am whining on… Can you see it in your hearts, to help a struggling, cold ridden teacher, who finally got her half term, but still needs to be on call as mummy, and wife too…? And click here to vote for the cover of my book, Poetic RITUals?

I need way over 100 votes… people really love those Zombie Dogs!!!! Let’s be honest, I won’t beat em, but no one can say I didn’t give it a heck of a try!

Love you long time, Peeps!

 

Man Flu!

I’m waiting… It’s gonna happen… If me n the kids are sniffling, it’ll transfer to the Man of the House soon. Now while I still have to get up, deal with the day to day chores of a mum, including whiney unwell children, when it hits him Oh My God!!! It’ll be awful! The worst cold ever!!!

But I’ll relish in the relative peace of him still being ok yet. Lil Man has not yet reached Man Flu status, and to be honest, he’s not a complainer. He sneezes, he attaches a tissue to his nose and gets on with it.

But no… What was I thinking??! So what if Man Flu hasn’t reached the man yet?? It appears that my daughter has it instead!!

I knew it was coming with her… The whining started a couple of days prior to the sneeze-athon starting. Everything was just tooooooo much for her!! The world, which already apparently revolves around her, wasn’t moving exactly just she how wanted it to… And now it’s hit, the tissue box is never close enough… Sympathy needed 24/7… And strains of “Mummy, I’m not weeeeellllll!” follow me EVERYWHERE!!!

Please, does anyone know? Do they do these for whiney Lil girls??!!

The Lurgy Returns!!!!

So we’ve managed a few weeks, cold and cough free, it’s been wonderful!
Celebrated my brother in laws birthday, Hubby Dearest’s and mother in laws birthday have passed, and we have a couple of days until it is Lil Princess’s 7th, and my Father in laws…
So why oh why do the sneezes decide to turn up NOW???!!
Lil man’s been sneezing for two days, Lil Princess in full snotsville today ( Ali guide a newly widened tooth gap, another tooth gone today!) and I’ve noticed my nose tap phase loosened too! Damn!!!
No!!
Cold, you have taken far too much of our time these last few months!!! Please, just do one!!!

My lovely peeps, please, some get well wishes for our birthday girl to be, I’d hate for her day to be spoiled with a cold!!
