All around me, people are ill. Coughing, sneezing, hollow-eyed, hoarse-voiced, etc. It's terrible; why are they out & about? Don't they know about "the" flu? Ds' teacher was off sick today - good on her! Too late, though, as ds & dd are sneezing & snuffling... what's a mum to do? My throat feels suspiciously scratchy. I cannot succumb! I'm indispensable
to the welfare of the family! Help!sad

thx for asking - I gave both dc a children's NeoCitran (Lemsip in UK) last night which helped and we've all been dosing ourselves with a miracle homeopathic (is this a word?) medicine called oscillococcinum. I can't pronounce it so call it osso-buco.
