Well he's been down and had lunch,then gone back upstairs to work. I'm going to stick a candle in a cake shortly and see if he notices that.

Well he hasn't remembered yet.

I've lined the cards up on the mantelpiece to see if he notices.

It's my birthday

Nice brekky, but I'm not really doing much food yet. Still trying to rehydrate. As a pre xmas diet, norovirus is pretty effective. 3pounds lost this week. Probably all fluid. With all the antics over the last week, I think OH has forgotten it's my birthday.

I usually have a pretty good immunity system, and it appears to have cleared in 24 hours, but mum started at 1am yesterday and is still ill.  She is still on liquids only. I have to say I couldn't get comfortable in any position yesterday. Imodium, Buccastem , and paracetamol seemed to have sorted most symptoms.

I might have been premature starting the boil washing. Looks like OH is starting with it.

Outbreak of Norovirus at Kings Mill Hospital, Mansfield.

Mum has it, I have it,and OH has just started going nauseous and complaining that his stomach feels like its been kicked by a donkey, so I guess he's about to start with it. Pretty inevitable I suppose. We should probably put a big red cross on the front door to keep away marauding cold callers.

Our aussie lodger decided to stay elsewhere last night, for that reason.

Well I spent yesterday between the bed and the toilet. I phoned mum to say I couldnt do the hospital run, and she had been the same. We assumed we had food poisoning from the buffet at the party, but no one else was affected. By lunch time I figured Norovirus as I ached all over as well. My sister did the hospital trip. Lots of signs up at the hospital warning of norovirus. One ward in lockdown because of it. It looks like we picked it up in EAU on Friday.

My dad thought he should go home to look after mum!

My sister opened mums back door, threw a large pack of dettol wipes through, and legged it.

I'm feeling a lot better, about to start boil washing all towels and sheets and  bleaching all surfaces.


It's the weekend people lighten up!!!!
