Dh has been off sick Monday & Tuesday. He was planning to go back to work today but I've come down with the bug last night, so I asked him to take today to mind DCs. He think IABU but I'm trying to explain that he gets time off work to recover, and I mind the DCs but when I'm sick I still have to 'work'. And IMO he's not well enough to go back in anyway.
Just to add there is no one nearby who could help instead of dh.
