Eeuw - vomit everywhere

Two sick kids.

Last night we were all in front of the tv. It was late for the kids 10:30ish, but it's school holidays, so no problem. Callan announces that he has a sore tummy. Suddenly he throws up. We decide to put him in the warm guest bedroom, and Fi will stay with him. Briony draws a picture of Callan vomiting. Then Fi asks me to come help as he's been sick again in the bed and we have to strip the sheets and turn the mattress. This time we put towels under him in case it happens again.

Then Fi comes down again, can I come help because now Briony has been sick in her bed and it's a hell of a mess. We put her in our bed. (with towels) and I stay with her. Callan had Fi up a few more times in the night, and Briony threw up again at 2:30am.

We all got up late. B had a bath to get the sick out of the ends of her long hair. They are both now lying on the couches watching Willy Wonka (Johnny Depp version)

On the plus side there has been a thaw and it is 8 degrees outside. I chopped some wood and worked up a sweat. the pigeons water is still frozen, tho the white bird is on the nest again.

What a night !! Hope the kids are feeling better, and that the weather keeps improving...loved your Mandarin Man and photo of Fi with her trolly full of wood.

Seems to have been a 1 day bug. As the doctors say, "there's a lot of it going about"

Briony has the mind of a true artist: capturing what you see is above all... I often do the same, which drives The JohnnyB crazy, especially if he is balancing himself on one foot on the roof at a rainey night, trying to block a leak (true story!).

Hope they get well soon!
