*Groan*...

Earlswood sunrise today
...Mummy, Daddy and Thomas are poorly (Mummy has full on flu-like symptoms, Daddy has a sore throat, blocked up nose and aching muscles), in fact, if it wasn't for my only other team member being off today I would have been tempted to just turn the alarm off and roll over - not that it would have made the slightest bit of difference to my state of wakefulness, when Thomas is poorly then the whole house has to know about it (no matter the time of day or night)...at the moment, the poor little mite, he is teething (hands constantly up to his ears), has the worst nappy rash I have ever seen (seriously, seriously bad - he's off to the doctors later) and has a terrible cough (absolutely hacking) meaning he is feeling very sorry for himself indeed and is very nearly inconsolable when he manages to wake himself up in the night...in the end (last night) we just gave up and brought him in with us, but he just crawled round and round unable to get comfortable - our only option to keep him from wailing was to distract him by doing words - "What's this Thomas" (pointing at the clock) - "Dock", "What's this Thomas" (pointing at the drink) - "Dink" (etc.) which obviously doesn't lend itself very well to getting him back to sleep...So here we are at 08:30 on a Monday morning and I'm already wishing the weekend would hurry up and get here...Zzzzz...
