Don’t Mess With The Sick Girl

2013_01_160002 we are second tired of these people (Photo credit: Gwydion M. Williams) Nothing to do with being ill but funny so I had to share it

As you may have noticed – and if you didn’t, leave me a compliment to make up for it – and if you do that, I’ll know you really don’t pay attention – I haven’t blogged for two days (jokes don’t count).  I’ve been sick.

The last time I spent more than one day in bed, another person came out of me (Spud: Let’s hope THAT doesn’t happen).  His nasty germ transmitted itself to me because, when Spud got sick, he told his father he must stay away; but that I had to look after him (Spud).  Being a mother, I did; and he repaid the love by infecting me.

How he wishes he hadn’t.

According to the Hub, I am a terrible sick person.  I am grouchy and mean and pathetic.  ‘Imagine your mood if you were permanently hungry,’ is how he put it.

Don’t make me hungry; you wouldn’t like me when I’m hungry.  

The Hub has now started with the same symptoms, so Spud ignoring him for days obviously didn’t work.  The Hub’s M.E. always aggravates whatever he gets so that he gets it worse than the rest of us put together.  

Day One: The Hub reckons he feels so bad, he could be in a Findus pie.

    I was wondering where you were!

    Hope the lurgy leaves your household soon.

    Glad to have you back – I missed you! I hope you get well soon. 🙂

    Yes I noticed, and emailed you, but you didn’t tell me you were sick. Poor you, poor Hub. I hope the bugs disappear quickly. I am coughing marginally less since starting anti-biotics and proper antitussif, (so went for a lovely walk in the sun this morning. That’s what we all need: Spring.

      Definitely! The sun is out and I feel better already.

      I don’t recall that email, but I was pretty out of it. I hardly looked at the computer.

    So glad that you’re feeling better now – I wouldn’t worry too much about Findus pies …. read online yesterday that Findus manufactor all their products just outside Landskrona in Bjuv – except the lasange .. made in France and there they eat horses. *laughing. Like you I blame the Pope. *smile – great to have you back.

    Be assured, I won’t mess with you! 😉 I hope the whole family will be up and running soon again. Take care!

    So sorry you’v been sick, my friend.

    So have I. But with me, you cannot tell, because I often don’t post. Heh heh.

    However, if I get the strength, today, I’ll put one up called “A Code Id By Doze” 🙂

    I am so happy that you are on the mend and sad that the Hub is now ill with it, poor lamb. I thought something was wrong when you didn’t post anything after the headache and the shower. Rest and more rest is the best medicine so don’t overdo yourself just because you are feeling better. You still need to rest so that you can get back to the full 100% Tilly. 🙂

    You haven’t blogged for a couple of days? My, I hadn’t kno….oh, I mean…umm…well…I…I…I love the way you’re holding that Malterser by the way! Like a true pro.

    Hope all of you are well soon…seems like a number of people have been ill this winter…take good care.


  12. gigihawaii February 15, 2013 at 18:12 #

    Too bad your whole household came down with the flu. Take care, everyone!


  13. Perfecting Motherhood February 15, 2013 at 18:37 #

    Sounds like the big flu epidemic we had a few weeks ago here. Everybody dropped like flies… Hope you feel a lot better soon.

    Yikes. I won’t catch it by visiting your blog, will I? You know, it is all about me. Who cares if you are sick. (Well, me. Get well soon!)


  15. sarsm February 15, 2013 at 19:59 #

    Hope you feel better soon!!


  16. terry1954 February 15, 2013 at 20:12 #

    sorry to hear you have been sick. Hope you are feeling better now


  17. McGuffyAnn February 15, 2013 at 20:26 #

    I did miss you and wondered what had happened to you! I thought perhaps you were doing penance for your comment about the Pope’s untimely retirement. I hope you are feeling better now. (Behave.)

    So sick that she gave us the snub
    Tilly’s passed it now to the Hub
    I hope now she’ll immerse
    Herself in more verse
    “Cause I miss her, aye there’s the rub.


  19. kateshrewsday February 15, 2013 at 23:38 #

    This is a nasty one, isn’t it, Tilly? 😦 Do hope you’re feelng better soon….


  20. benzeknees February 16, 2013 at 01:21 #

    Oh poor Hubs! And poor you! BTW what is a Findus pie? Have another Malteser so you don’t act perpetually hungry!


  21. Grannymar February 16, 2013 at 14:00 #

    I did miss your posting (besides the jokes), I thought you were resting your back. May the fairy of good health wave her wand over the Bud household and bring good health to all of you.


  22. Three Well Beings February 17, 2013 at 05:35 #

    We have something in common once again! I’m not feeling too all myself! Those germs spread a long distance didn’t they? I hope we BOTH feel better very soon! 🙂

    Oh dear, a sick Tilly, must be hell to live with. I had to check what a “Findus Pie” is. 😆


I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
