Hot Stuff

Thomas woke up this morning with 2 flushed cheeks and a temperature. A dose of calpol and within 30 minutes he was much better, which was good as his friend was coming to play for the morning. However, by 1pm his rosy cheeks were back again and he took himself to bed complaining of a sore throat and headache. The calpol seems to be keeping it all at bay, but I have a feeling he won't be in school tomorrow.
Mark's mum & dad came for lunch. It all seems more trouble than it's worth at times, his mum can hardly bend her legs and struggles to get into the house. But it's a change of scenery for her and it means his dad gets a meal made for him for a change. After lunch his dad spent the afternoon watching motorbike racing while his mum, bless her, stood leaning on her zimmer frame repeatedly asking me where the children were. 

Thomas came down early evening and we cuddled up on the settee watching The Witches. He's eaten nothing all day and I couldn't even tempt him with his favourite cookies - a good yardstick for how ill he really is.

We watched this film last night. It's based on the story of Paul Potts, the opera singer who won Britain's Got Talent in 2007. I absolutely love British Films and this one didn't disappoint.

I'm a sucker for a rags to riches story.
