Under the Weather {Flashback Friday}

November 23, 2012

It’s been quiet on the blog this week; our little man has come down with the lurgy. He was really under the weather but now he seems on the road the recovery, normal life can resume. He isn’t a very cuddly little boy; he will come to snuggle occasionally but it usually too busy playing to bother sitting with us. This week however I haven’t been able to leave the room, or the sofa; he was a permanent fixture hanging round my neck! I was also on the phone to my Mum and fair bit, describing his symptoms for the official ‘mummy diagnosis.’

I started thinking about when I was younger and became poorly and how nice it was to be looked after by your Mum. I went through a spell in Primary School when I got tonsillitis a fair bit but other than that I wasn’t often ill. When I was though it meant a day in my Mum and Dads bed and Mum would supply me with my favourite comfort food; Heinz Cream of Chicken soup and buttered bread, egg custard tarts, banana and custard and ice cream. I would sometimes get a colouring book or a puzzle book too. Even now if I’m feeling under the weather I crave my comfort food, it really does make me feel better. This week I bought Lucas a sticker book and some egg custards (which Mummy may have tested too) as he really was feeling quite sorry for himself.

I know things are getting back to normal now because the snuggles on the sofa have stopped; I’m so glad he is getting back to his usual safe but I have secretly been enjoying all the cuddles!

    Hope he is feeling better soon. I love comfort food when I don’t feel well and you can’t beat snuggles with your kids.

    Hope he is better really soon. We’ve got 2 poorly boys at the moment too so I know how you feel (and am also secretly enjoying the cuddles)
    Comfort food is a must when poorly.

    Thank you for linking up xx

      Oh no, I find it difficult with one, must be a struggle with two! Hope they are better soon too, it’s awful not seeing them their usual selves xx

    So sorry your little man has been under the weather I hate it whenever any of mine are ill.
    I remember when I was I’ll and being looked after by my mum hot milk and honey when I had a cold. And when I was feeling better my meal of choice? Beef burger (no nap) mash potato, baked beans and gravy!!
    Glad your little man is on te road to being better and thank you for linking up x x

      Ooh, Jenny, your comfort food sounds lovely! I still occasionally get some of my favourites delivered by my Mum when I’m not feeling well! xx
