But my mum won't write me a note.
She says that it's just a cold and I'll be fine. :-(
and she says I'm 35 and should just be getting on with it lol!
The child has told me to "Man Up Mummy!"
The man has told me I should have the day off school and I should spend the whole day in bed. With him....
Nobody is taking my pooooooooooooorrrrrrrrrrrrrlllllllllllyyyyyyy cold seriously.
Least of all me!
However, I did make some fabulous soup last night, in about 15 minutes.
I slightly fried 1 tsp of minced garlic (from a jar - I know, how lazy!) and 2 tsp of lime pickle. (yes, the hot stuff from the Indian restaurant.) Then I tipped in a tin of chopped tomatoes and a box of chopped tomatoes and chilli. Then I added a few more shakes of chilli powder, some Worcestershire sauce, some sugar and heated it all through, blitzed it with the stick blender and slurped it down. The man had seconds, which as he doesn't like tomato soup is something of a miracle. The boy was already having fish fingers and beans for his tea, which turned out to be fish finger surprise tea. The surprise was that they were chicken dippers (makes mental note to label bags more clearly! Or even just label them at all....) but like the good child he is he did try it. His eyes ran, and he drank a half pint of water, but he was ok! He did say he'd wait a few months before trying it again.
Anyway, considering I thought we had not a lot of food in, tea was lovely!
However, I *am* still poorly and I do not want to go to school. (I'm going though, because I am not a lazy person by nature!)
Just so we are clear about this.
