Today I am thankful for three things - antibiotics, coffee and calpol. Antibiotics and calpol for Angus's ear infection and coffee for me.
I am writing about illness far more than I intended too. Hopefully, once Spring comes, the viruses and colds that have plagued this household will vanish, and I will be able to share photographs of the sunny outdoors and other happy things.
But for now, we are hunkering down and enduring. Angus woke many, many times last night. Hourly. I cuddled him, he went back to sleep, then woke again, sobbing. I am so very thankful for my doctor, the NHS, and living in a country where I can just go and get my poorly boy better quickly and easily. I am extremely tired, but motherhood brings days like this and I know that tomorrow will be different. And Angus? He seems untroubled by last night's drama, snuggled under a blanket watching a Peppa Pig DVD.
