Who put that wall there?

Last night in the Working Mum house ...................


I woke up at 2am to the sound of daughter crying. I staggered across the bedroom to see to her and, in my exhausted and confused state, I walked into a wall I'd forgotten was there and split my lip.


I settled her down and stumbled back to bed only to cough and cough. And cough and cough and cough.


Husband: If I had a sword I would cut your head off.


He says the sweetest things.


Me: I assure you it is much more annoying for me actually having the cough, than for you listening to it.


Husband: You shouldn't have gone back to work. If you're not careful you'll end up in hospital on a drip.


Is it really wrong of me that I think that sounds like a lovely prospect?

That sounds like heaven - non-life-threatening but enforced bed rest with no guilt about all the jobs that need doing.

Well, believe me the prospect is more attractive than the reality. Think MRSA; C-Difficile; Necrostising Fasciitis! There - I bet you feel better already!

Frantic Mummy said...

That sounds painful. Hope you feel better soon

Hi, thanks right back at ya for visiting my blog! Very impressed that you were a Queen's Guide, I was nothing of the sort, but I know how much work it takes. I'm doing my bit now though!

Potty Mummy said...

The Dotterel is right. Now, if you could arrange to be on bed-rest at home... whole different prospect.

Your post made me laugh out loud!! You poor thing, you have been poorly for a long time now. Still, it's nearly the holidays, so lets hope the rest will do you the world of good (as long as your head is still intacked!)

Oh, bless your heart. I was hopeing you were feeling better. Who put that dang wall there anyway???

My last but one post was entitled 'Move that Wall' 'cept it was more metaphorical than solid...ouch! Poor you. No hospital is no place you want to be this Christmas...as recall, Doctors as Nurses let their hair down at that time and not a little lqid refreshment is imbibed. Hubby should pay for that remark...go to bed and stay there till dinner is on the table.

A split lip...... forgetting the wall was there....... not nice.
Keep out of hospitals, I say, unless it is absolutely essential.
Hope you feel better soon. You have been through it recently. Not long till Friday! (Well that's when WE break up!)

Funny the things we long for, just to get some peace and rest.

Mummy Cow said...

You need a snow day - or three... Hope you feel better soon.

rosiero said...

Get better soon, or maybe not if you fancy that bed-rest!! Right now, I agree that an intravenous drip of Merlot or Chablis would keep me sane at the moment!

Jacki said...

Hahahha! Oh there are times I wish I could go to hospital and get some much needed rest! I could read, watch TV....

Angel said...

Your post made me laugh aloud too! Sorry to hear you are still unwell.
You need some serious tlc and enforced settee rest
