2010 Is already a washout!

Five days in and already twenty ten is proving to be as difficult a year as the last one. So much for my positive attitude and being thankful for life's simple pleasures, F$£K simple pleasures, i mean how can a cup of tea and a hot water bottle help me after a night from hell with three sick kids and a husband suffering from toothache?

I'm sat in my Onsie pj's trying to comfort two very sick little twins, with black rings under my eyes big enough to compete with Beetle juice, piles of vomit covered bedding and clothes, a kitchen full of dirty dishes and i just want some.........SLEEP!!!

I'm exhausted, my parents are on a bloody Caribbean cruise, my sister is snowed in and my sister-in-law is working so i have little chance of a helping hand and to add insult to serious injury Mia's school is closed due to snow so I now have to provide entrainment and crafts!!!

Well I'm off to wallow in self pity, tackle at least a few dishes and hopefully try to get the twins to have a nap so i can catch up on my sleep. Oh and Mr Bold is busy "Practising his Snowboarding skill", he's at the chill factor in Manchester with his friends preparing for his forthcoming French Ski trip....Sans Famille of course!! But that's OK apparently because he did "make a five foot snowman this morning complete with buttons and everything". Men arghhh!

  1. I saw the 50 simple pleasures list and wallowing in self pity was on it (really, at no.28!) so wallow away! Hope the kids get better soon x

  2. ha ha. Sounds like my year so far too! Yesterday spent most of my day cleaning up sick and snot from 2 very poorly and very grumpy children. Other half away with work for 3 days amd had no sleep for last 2 nights!!
    Hope your week gets better soon but hopefully the knowledge that there is someone else who is equally exhausted with equally big bags under her eyes out there will make you feel slightly better!!

  3. Massive sympathy, all sounds terribly unfair. My husband informed me yesterday that he is off to Colorado for a skiing trip in February. Likewise sans famille. Imagine my delight. Not. Hope sick children are feeling better.

  5. They are genetically programmed to think that doing a 'fun' thing with the kids, entitles them to a free 'do what the hell I want' pass. Mine has a bloody Aston Villa season ticket. A season ticket?! We have two teeny tiny children for christ's sake.

    Hope things improve today! x

  9. oh , oh , oh ...indeed that is not a fun party you are having over there........
    okay, but it does not mean the whole year is a wash...
    this is what you need to do...get that hot blue coat of yours on ...some sassy number with boots...makeup and hair done....and go grocery shopping...maybe get a warm bevy on the way..and OF COURSE this is a solo sport...Mr. bold will have to tend to the children!!!
    You will feel better...trust me!!

  11. So sorry to read this. You are a very generous woman to let your husband go away sans famille. Mine wouldn't even dare to dream about something like that ;-)
    Hope the kids are better soon and that you get some well deserved SLEEP! xx MM

  12. Poor you; not a good start to the year.

    I hope you are going to leave all the washing up for your husband on his return. btw How did he manage to get to the chill factor-e? The M60 has been a nightmare!

  15. You have my total sympathy. I suppose it can only get better hey? In the meantime, have you tried that old wives tale remedy for January blues? It's called red wine, or something like that?!

  20. Oh no, i hope everyone is feeling better now.

    I hope you have made sure that your husband knows that he will owe you big sytle for going away without you.

    Maybe a Radley bag or sparkly jewels will start to make up for it?

  21. Oh I am sorry! I've been unwell but at least I was able to get on with it and not have to look after anyone else at the same time. I hope your hubby realises how lucky he is - able to be ill and looked after and then off on holiday..alone?! You better get a lovely pressie from France x

  26. We could learn a lot from crayons. Some are sharp, some are pretty and some are dull, Some have weird names , and all are different colors, but they all have to live in the same box.............................................
