Desperate measures

This week your host is Helen over at Just a Normal Mummy. Now, a small word of warning: don’t go there if you can’t handle square-words, because she uses them a lot! But then that WallyBubba she’s raising over there sounds like she would drive poor Maria VonTrapp to the gin 😉

Wot So Funee?Last week I told you how the Bug was poorly. Thankfully he’s a lot better, but the inconsiderate little creature has only gone and passed his cough and sore throat on to me! I’m less grumpy than fiery when I’m ill, so EVERYONE has been in a lot of trouble this week!

Mummy refuses to be goaded, saying that what I really need is sleep. But you know, it’s  difficult to sleep when every swallow feels like a feather boa going down your throat; and when you finally do nod off you wake up coughing a week’s worth of half-melted Haribo’s out of your lungs!

Sleep – love it or hate it: So no, sleep is not for me. Not for me normally, and not for me when I’m ill. It has been well-documented that I’m a fan of late-night reading, and I indulge to the extent that Mummy has seen fit to remove every single piece of reading material from my room at bedtime. Not even a magazine.

Posters and nail-polish: So when she discovered me still awake last night with a torch she was flummoxed. She had no idea what I could have been doing. You see Mummy, I still have a few tricks up my sleeve. You know those posters of Jessie J and One Direction you let me blu-tack to my wall. There are articles about nail polish on the back of those. You’d be surprised how interesting nail polish can be when you’re trying to stay awake…

Wot So Funee?Now, if you have your own post to link this week, head over to Just a Normal Mummy and give her a link. You can add the badge code from my sidebar if you’d like, but the one you need to suck up to this week is Helen, if you’re keen for some sharing 😉 If you’re new to Wot So Funee? you can click the link for more info on how to get involved.

    We’re all going through that same sore throat bug, not nice :(
    Hope we’re all better soon and Mummy provides you with some decent reading material in your sick bed 😉 xx

    hope you feel better soon. I recently discovered Tyrozets are great for poorly throats and taste so yummy too! My J is just like that with late night reading – we can often find him up til 11pm with a book hidden under his duvet – but no nail polish articles as yet! xxx

  1. […] As many of you are aware, I’m a reader of the late-night variety. I have had my book-case surgically removed from my bedroom by my sleep-worshiping parents, and I step foot out of my bedroom during official sleeping hours at my peril. However, being less devout and more youthful in outlook than my past-it tired elders, I can go to all sorts of lengths to achieve a night-time read. […]
