I can understand why, kids were home most of last week as they were ill. I got up and got them ready for school today even though I feel rough (thanks for the lurgies, kids) only to discover school is closed today - I missed the letter when they were off
January is depressing anyway, too far from summer to remember being warm and too far from spring to get hopeful
Well my dh was sacked from his job last week and on the same day my ds broke his arm for the 2nd time in 10 months, so I can't say we are feeling on top of the world right now. Would have been quite chipper for the time of year otherwise.
Yes that is the difficulty. It is also why I am on Mumsnet now! I find it hard to get on with all the housework when he is bumming around doing nothing. He was out of work for four and a half months last year so I know I get used to having him around eventually (actually I like it) but I am still at the "hy should I do anything if you aren't?" stage today.
