Cause she is all poorly and should be at a wedding somewhere sunny but instead is here policing us rabid lot.

Can we all try to be polite to each other for the rest of the evening so that she can have an early night?

Who knows a good hot toddy recipe? wine

PickledInAPearTree Tue 12-Feb-13 23:21:42

Agree! Brandy & lemonade works for me.

Poor Olivia.

MmeLindor Tue 12-Feb-13 23:23:02

Surely a hot toddy has to involve whisky?

Although, I will tell you what is FAB - warm amaretto with whipped cream.

OliviaMumsnet (MNHQ) Tue 12-Feb-13 23:23:08

Thanks MmeLindor. blush I will be alright.
I was fine earlier - about 6pm
I had a sore chest yest and it has developed somewhat and I am feeling rather rough.
Hot toddy prob not good idea as tis "punctuality fortnight" at school and DS1 desperate to get his certificate so can't risk oversleeping.

Valpollicella Tue 12-Feb-13 23:23:15

Aw, poor Olls. wine ?

Best not post on any threads where you might get lynched, eh? [wunk]

PickledInAPearTree Tue 12-Feb-13 23:23:48

What's a wunk? It sounds rood!

I could send her photos of my safari in South Africa last yeartop cheer her up.

I enjoy a cup of hot milk with whisky and honey when I am full of a lurgy.

Valpollicella Tue 12-Feb-13 23:24:55

Have you not been to the docs Olivia <stern>?

You were rough last night....don't make me go iti on you to go and get sorted

Maryz Tue 12-Feb-13 23:25:08

Aw, poor Olivia. I promise to be all sweetness and light until you are better for ever and ever. Can you go back to bed tomorrow after leaving him into school (on time).

And by the way, how did your ds get old enough to go to school? I thought you were on maternity leave about six months ago shock - where has my life gone?

MmeLindor Tue 12-Feb-13 23:25:17

Punctuality fortnight - teachers dream these things up to punish us, don't they?

Poor you. <unmymsnetly hugs>

You need. Red wine. Lots of it. And ignore the bumsex threads. And the poo trolls.

We luvs ya.

yeartop confused

I go to bed.

Hope you feel better tomorrow Liv.....

Greensleeves Tue 12-Feb-13 23:26:03

"punctionality week" shock hanging's too good for 'em!

Poor Olivia. <<rummages in pockets>> Here's some peace and love. And a (slightly furry) cherry menthol Tune

LineRunner Tue 12-Feb-13 23:28:18

I will sell my house and all its contents to raise the money for some branded Elm Sips for Olivia.

TheDoctrineOfSciAndNatureClub Tue 12-Feb-13 23:28:29

Punctuality fortnight? What fresh hell is this?

<passes Vicks rub>

OliviaMumsnet (MNHQ) Tue 12-Feb-13 23:28:45

YY I know. I know. blush
But didn't feel bad enough for doc's today.
Will make appt tomoz

Please don't send pics of SA safari - kind gesture though it is.
it may tip me over The Edge
I am on constant refresh on FBook to see photos of B&groom and that's bad enough. sadenvy

Anyway, off to take a nonalcoholic toddy
Thanks all

Punctionality Fortnight. pah!

Master Quint Jr2 came hom saying:
"Mum, did you know Adam has not been on time for school even ONCE the last two months".

I wonder how he came to know that.... hmm

wink Olivia, take care tomorrow!

he he, I invented a new word! Punctionality is an improvement.

Maryz Tue 12-Feb-13 23:31:16

Did you get money back on insurance Olivia? If so, can you plan alternative trip somewhere nice?

MyHeadWasInTheSandNowNot Tue 12-Feb-13 23:32:24

Hope your yest feels better soon x wink

One hot toddy wont make you a write off - just set the alarm smile


MyHeadWasInTheSandNowNot Tue 12-Feb-13 23:33:50

Oh and how come you couldn't go to the wedding?

Olivia was pregnant with twins in my dream last night. It was odd, I woke up thinking that maybe I'm spending too much time on here!

ScrambledSmegs Tue 12-Feb-13 23:33:54

I solemnly promise to be good tonight.

Tbh it won't be hard, as I'll be asleep for the next 7 hours wishful thinking but the intent is there. Hope you get some rest and feel better soon Olivia.

Well, I am going to be really good. I am off to bed.

Get well soon.

Thumbwitch Wed 13-Feb-13 02:22:50

I hope you're tucked up in bed now, Olivia brew

And no more GFTMcT types turn up.

CheerfulYank Wed 13-Feb-13 03:55:56

Poor Olivia. Had to drag herself to Flouncer's Corner earlier and throw some shade to get everyone to behave.

Hot drinks and lots of rest, darling.

BIWI Wed 13-Feb-13 08:27:37


Hope you're feeling better this morning, Olivia.

Poobumwilly to not being in SA. sad

Pagwatch Wed 13-Feb-13 08:34:17

Poor Olivia. Hope you feel better.

landofsoapandglory Wed 13-Feb-13 08:40:51

Poor Olivia. Get Well soonthanks

I've got the lurgy too, so don't have the energy to misbehave!

Trills Wed 13-Feb-13 08:42:34

Hot toddys made with rum and nicer than those made with whiskey.

I can send you pictures of my thermometer, Olivia? You may feel better in England once you see "42d C." <hopeful emoticon>

Hot toddys should be made with scotch. Fact.

I hope you're feeling a bit better today.

KateSMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 13-Feb-13 15:24:05

Some HQ on HQ love for O thanks

That sounds faintly rude KateSM

Iteotwawki Wed 13-Feb-13 15:45:21

Hot toddy recipe!

Cut an orange and a lemon into large pieces.
Cover with whiskey (or brandy or rum or all 3 ) & leave to steep while kettle boils.
Top up with hot water & a couple of tablespoons of honey.

Drink. Lots.

Another good one is minty hot chocolate with a large slug or 3 of Bailey's.

Vinegar tits you double bastard!

I've only just cleaned my eyes out from last time!

Blatherskite Wed 13-Feb-13 16:33:28

Poor Olivia. Poorly, missing a wedding and having to deal with us lot!

Maryz Wed 13-Feb-13 17:14:18

I have learned to hover over links before clicking.

Finally! After years and years of TWC and the fucking bat.

I hope you are feeling better and having a lovely day in bed Olivia.

I popped over here to wish Olivia well, but I've got a bit distracted by the MNHQ love in...

The road to hell is paved with good intentions.

Maryz Wed 13-Feb-13 17:57:46

Oh do fuck off Beardy!

(does that make you feel better?)

Luffs you too MaryZzZzZz

Valpollicella Wed 13-Feb-13 22:15:05

So Olivia, what did the doc say? <stern>

gallicgirl Wed 13-Feb-13 22:41:33

Did anyone see that news report about a new SARS virus?

[ cough ]

OliviaMumsnet (MNHQ) Thu 14-Feb-13 11:53:01


So Olivia, what did the doc say? <stern>

Wasn't well enough to get there yest. sad

But went today.
It is an infection. But not a chest infection but larynx/trachea infection.
Treat with rest <laughs hysterically> and take the penicillin if i start REALLY suffering from fever

Hope its not SARS!

Big love to the MNHQ team especially RowanMumsnet who looked after you lot last night while I was guzzling night nurse.

LadyMaryQuiteContrary Thu 14-Feb-13 11:55:12

thanks Sounds horrible sad

Rest and plenty of fluids. I hope you're all better soon.

Jux Thu 14-Feb-13 12:05:49

Horrid things going around atm. Half of dd's school is off; parents are bringing children in swaddled up straight from sickbed in order to sign off GCSE choices.

Hope you start to feel better soon, Olivia. flowers
