More viral marketing

Grrr! Had all sorts of things I was going to post up this weekend in order to make my blog look pretty and welcoming for tomorrow, but have been laid low by a mystery virus or maybe food poisoning which has involved a ferocious stomach ache, copious vomiting (and not just at the Big Brother snogfest) and a high temperature. Not sure what’s been going on recently, but my body is obviously telling me I need to take a bit more care of myself.

The hardest thing has been avoiding touching the Minx too much for fear of passing on the virus. At nineteen months she can’t understand at all why I am refusing to cuddle her or take her on my knee to read books together. The looks of confusion in her eyes when I ignore her cries of ‘mum-mee, mum-mee, mum-mee’ make me feel like the world’s worst mother, and the moment when she came up to me, signed ‘more’ and threw her arms up for a hug – which I had to decline – fair broke my heart.

    I saw your post on typepad today and just wanted to say the same thing happened to me several years ago. I hope you are feeling better. It might take 2-3 weeks before you can eat anything other than soft foods. Things that helped me were soft boiled eggs, mashed potatoes and very very soft oatmeal (made with lots of water). If you can sip on water all day long, that helps alot too. A perscription for compazine should help with vomiting and nausea. It was the only thing that helped me feel better for the first week. I hope this helps!

    I have really enjoyed finding your blog. I too lived in N. Hill and loved it. I enjoy the honesty and openess in your blog, the stories you tell and the pictures you post.
    I look forward to having a family myself soon on top of running my business & hope I can keep my sense of humour the way you have kept yours. Thank you angel.
