I had planned to visit Chelsea today to check out her new house and to give her some hand-me-down clothes of Charli's but I never made it. Why? you ask, well....
I was approaching the first set of traffic lights into Hobart from Mt Nelson when I heard the familiar sound of my mobile phone ringing. It was the office lady at Taroona High saying, "Oh hello love, I have Isaac here, he looks a terrible shade of green, he's saying he feels like he's going to throw up, can you come and get him?"
I turned my car around and headed for Channel Highway. I picked up my 'green' son and headed for home. Once he was settled in bed with a bucket and a book I decided he'd be ok by himself. I had an appointment in town so I headed in that direction. Following the appointment I called Isaac - all ok so I thought I'd zip out to Chelsea's for just a bit. I was only in second gear when my phone rang again. "Oh Hello Blanche, Reuben is feeling a bit unwell, he thinks he might throw up, can you come and get him? A quick U-turn and I'm once again heading for Mt Nelson. Almost there and the phone rings AGAIN. " Hello, is that Blanche? yes. "I have Isabella here, she's unwell. Are you able to come and get her?".
It's like dominos!
I collect my children and on the way out I overhear Reuben's friend Conner, talking with the teacher. Conner is also sick but his mum can't get him "because she's at work today". So I bring him home with me too (one for goodluck!!)
They all slept
my house smells like...mmm... sickness
I have a huge headache.
On a slightly different note...hasn't it been the most glorious day today in Hobart? More please.
