So this is Christmas


It’s fair to say this has been a Christmas of extremes. At one extreme has been the absolute wonder that only kids can bring. This year, more than any we’ve had so far, Heather gets the whole thing. And that’s rubbed off on Megan too, meaning we’ve had two very excited girls for weeks and weeks.

And Christmas Day itself certainly didn’t disappoint. The girls had a great time opening their presents (Megan more interested in removing the wrapping than the contents) and we had a wonderful dinner with my lot, minus my brother-in-law who sadly had to work. It was after midnight before my Mum and Dad left us, rounding off a wonderful day that was definitely one of the best ever.

So that was the good. But there’s been bad too. We’ve all had the dreaded Norovirus to varying degrees, with poor Megan being the worst. She’s had not one but two relapses, twice throwing up just when we thought she was back to normal. And the icing on the cake? Heather is now on a course of antibiotics to help her fight the tonsilitis she’s come down with in the last 24 hours.

Merry Christmas to us!

Here’s hoping the new year starts more healthily than this one has finished. I doubt it could get much worse.

This autumn I'm running/cycling in a 30km duathlon and a half marathon, to raise money for Breast Cancer Campaign. You can read more about my challenge here or support me here. All donations, however big or small, gratefully received!

  1. Feel your pain with the sickness thing, the week before Christmas Matilda had a temperature for the whole week and I’ve had mouth ulcers for the last 10 days so eating Christmas dinner was hard work.
    Seems like an awful lot of people were in the same boat to. Hope you managed to find some fun times in amongst the puking :)

    • Even though it feels like an eternity since all four of us were healthy, it has been a good festive period. I’m probably tempting fate here, but I’ve been fine for over 2 weeks now – long may it continue!

      I saw you guys were still suffering. Hope it didn’t spoil things too much
