Fed up



These past three weeks haven't really been the best ones. Each and every member of this family is completely fed up of being sick. Our kitchen is starting to look like an apothecary with three bottles of antibiotics, four medications for eye-infections, fever medications, pouches filled with smashed onions and garlic, herbal remedies etc. Every one of us has an eye-infection, both the girls have a middle-ears infection, I was finally today diagnosed with an sinus infection after ten days of fever and Iisa has caught a stomach bug to top this whole thing. My poor husband has spend his winter holiday driving us to the doctor and apothecary, doing the house-hold and having his share of sneezing and coughing. Well, I hope the worst of this is already behind us.

However, there are some positive sides in this. I really haven't been in the condition to clean the house, but my husband has taken great effort in that field. I have been spending time on the couch or in bed knitting, making jewelery and crocheting. I find it somehow interesting, that it is easier to do crafts than read while being sick, because reading normally is very highly ranked in my priorities. Naturally when the fever gets high enough, there is no other option than sleeping, but ten days of sleeping is a bit too much even for me.

I hope you are in good health and I wish you a lovely Easter time celebrating our Saviour.

Voi kuinka kurjaa moinen sairastelu! Kauniita töitä olet kyllä saanut aikaiseksi, mutta toivottavasti tauti jättää teidät pikimmiten rauhaan!

I can imagine how you feel, some illness has been crawling on me today as well. But I have not been able to make anything nice like you have, I just laid in bed and stared.

All those annoying winter illnesses will just vanish when spring arrives... Soon, soon...
Until then, you all take good care of yourselves!
