In Which We Really Turn PottyMouthed

So the last few days have been pretty darn boring. So boring in fact that the Doctor asked me if he went for a big bike ride would he feel better because he's sick of watching DVDs and lying on the couch in his general malaise.
Three weeks of being sick sucks, croup has turned into bronchial coughs. Meh!
In a bid to pick things up we visited the Doctor yesterday and now the kids are both on antibiotics. And the Doctor got the hot pink antibiotics, and Tiny wants to swap him for hers. Hers are white.

The Doctor has also morphed into the PottyMouthDoctor. He cussed on the mike on Monday. Not once. But FIVE TIMES! Shocking to the max.

So this morning in a bid to alleviate boredom we went for a walk up the street to see if we could find the neighbour's cat. The Doctor took his scooter, Tiny wore her yellow boots today. We walked right up the top, and walked right back down, and the Doctor found some energy to do four or five laps of a section of footpath. He thought it was awesome. Oh and we got to pat the cat too!
We got home just in time for the rain to start sprinkling down on top of us.
Usually I love Winter. But this Winter I am longing for warmer days. I'm sick of being sick. I'm tired of being cold.

Total bummer. Being sick and having sick little ones is not a great combination at all. Damn cold weather. I read that we get sick more in Winter because we are inside more, so those outside excursions might be just the ticket.
Get well soon.

Aaw guys, I really feel for you.

Being sick sucks. I can't even imagine what it's like with 2 sick children. I have only ever had to deal with one sick husband. Did I ever tell you about the time he got chickenpox in Spain? I was tempted to leave him there...

Ok, back to you guys.

Sending you lots of healthy vibes and onion syrup. (That's what my mum used to make me drink when I was sick, I kid you not.)


PS. Sorry for the long rambling comment.

Hope you guys are feeling better soon. Don't forget we've turned the corner daylight wise- things can only get better now (helps me in the middle of a dreary cold winter anyway!)

P.S. the old spice add was on Gruen last night gosh I laughed so hard still!

Oh dear. What's he been saying?
I'm well and truly over this winter too, and like you, I usually embrace winter.

I think that usually winter hasn't been so wet the last couple of years that this one seems such a drag. We have been rugging up and running around outside anyway - why does that always do so much for the soul?
