Kids have been ill since sat, temps, generally grumpiness and aching bodies

ds is teething two down, two nearly out

dd has been has been complaining of headaches, and now has only pccassionally temps, gp saw her this morning and gave her all clear to go preschool today but i dint send her as she is still whingy and tireed

Dh is abroad

I have just started to feel ill, my chest hurt, my body aches, my headaches, am drinking lemsip atm

obviously i reckon i must have swine flu, after reading other thread due to sudden onset, but in reality its probably exhaustion, no sleep for days as kids in my bed
my mum cant come here due to tube strike, i really want to go so kids can be entertained (they keep switching between ok and dying duck in a thunderstorm phases)

but both my mum and dad work ft and i feel guilty despite dr saying its not contagious

oh, poor poor you and poor dc sad

I think it's a perfectly reasonable thing to do as long as you are OK to drive, and as long as your mum will be kind to you and make you feel better not worse!

I guess it depends on how your mum and dad would feel about it.

Personally I wouldn't go, but I'm not you.

What does your Mum think? Is she is happy and you are OK to drive then go for it. If it is a bug then there is a chance your parents could get it but then you can pick stuff up anywhere so if they are chilled about it give yourself a break and go. Hope you all feel better soon.

Personally, I would get the kids off to bed early and order a pizza, and go visiting another day. What you all need is rest and an early night, and although I'm sure you Mum would look after you v well, just the fact that you have to drive there and then back will probably mean the kids are late to bed and will take it out of you if you are feeling ill. Why not just cosy in at home for tonight and arrange to see your parents when you are all better?

Or better still, if your mum is willing, get her to come to you and help you out if you are feeling rotten?

Sorry sorry, just spotted the bit about your mum not being able to come round. Well, the strike ends soon, so maybe keep that one in the bag for later in the week when you feel even worse! smile
