The dreaded fever returns

Just when you think it's safe to put away the Calpol ... out comes a toddler temperature again.  Last night at 3am we woke to a right clanger of 40 degrees, but with the help of Iggle Piggle and Calpol she has been quietly cheerful.  Just very, very hot.

This has meant no sewing, no blogging, no LMQG meeting, and even no Olympics as the telly has been commandeered to placate the grumpy toddler.  However, I have just managed to get her to bed so I am going to watch the Men's 100m final before she has chance to wake up again.  Usain Bolt was ridiculously fast in his heat so unless he falls over, I assume he is going to walk it again.

Keep your fingers crossed for both my sanity and the survival of this blog (I'm fairly sure nobody is tuning in regularly to hear about ill toddlers) and with any luck I might get something sewn in August.  To be fair, we did have a very good run of nobody being ill all the way from Easter to the beginning of the Summer Holidays, so I am not complaining.  These things are all very good for the growing immune system!  Just not good for blogs.

  1. aww, I wondered where you were this morning. I hope she gets better soon!

  2. Hope she is better today x

  3. Oh I do feel for you - I remember what it's like. My second daughter was at the doctor's every week for about two years - It's sooooo hard. Take care and stay strong!!!

  4. Oh no, I hope you little one feels better soon. There's nothing worse when you have a run of ill little people!

  5. I've had a few of calpol days/nights over the past couple of weeks. My wee man is a good little patient, which helps. He keeps infecting his dad though, who isn't such a good patient! Fingers crossed for better health x
