I woke last night at three o clock feeling sicker than I can ever remember. The bathroom became my best friend for the next few hours and at 6 I realised there was no way I could go to work. I hate having to phone in sick as usually that means an entire clinic has to be cancelled so the guilt is always there that my illness impacts on so many people!
Once I had made contact with work I crawled back to bed and my husband organised the kids for school and waited for our nanny to arrive to mind the youngest.
He however had a different idea, there was no hope of him staying downstairs with the nanny when he knew Mummy was up in bed, so after hearing him wailing I relented and let him into bed with me and although I felt miserable it was such a treat to have time to cuddle and snuggle with him and once we got warm and settled we went for a long sleep together.
I can’t remember the last time I did this and to wake up with his little hand holding mine made me feel immensely better…….so thank you darling boy, you showed me yet again that every cloud has a silver lining xxx
