The first week of school holidays; a big to-do list to get done at both home and work before Helsinki; in particular a big code push early on Tuesday morning.  I had a whole carefully worked-out schedule of when Tony and I would be at work and on leave and working from home and doing childcare runs.

Early on Monday morning, I woke up very suddenly and proceeded to have a very thorough stomach upset for much of the day.  My boss is the best boss, for taking over and sorting out my Tuesday work for me.  I had to reorganise the cleaner, and my routine bone marrow appointment due today (because taking a potential stomach bug into a ward of cancer patients is distinctly antisocial) and completely redo the who-is-home-when plan for the week.

But I was at least able to work today, and (fingers-crossed) I'll be back in the office tomorrow.

The most exciting thing this week has at least gone to plan so far.  My dad made a flying visit today to collect Nicholas for a long weekend at WOMAD. His first time away from home without a parent in tow; not his first time away from both parents though, and it should be a lot of fun for them both.  I look forward to hearing all about it on Monday.

Thank you for your consideration! ^_^ <3

For clarity: I don't have cancer, but I do have a substandard immune system (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome + psoriasis). Apparently my immune system would rather attack my skin than germs!

The last time I had a gastro virus, I had to be carted onto my plane flight in a manual wheelchair because I was so debilitated by it. And that was *before* I got Chronic Fatigue Syndrome!

I once had a cold leave me exhausted and feverish and blocked sinuses from April to July nonstop. Four months!

Another cold made me too ill to stand up for the length of time it takes an electric kettle to boil for *a month and a half*. It wasn't bronchitis or pneumonia (I saw a Dr to check!), just a standard garden variety cold than most people would barely notice and would shrug off in seven days.

My GP has now prescribed me prescription anti-viral medication for the next time I get a cold...
