The Sun is Shining and Things Are Looking Up...

Last night when Child Number Three started with the puking, I thought, Oh No! Here we go again!?!?! And nearly went CRAZY. Really I have been sooo house bound. I look terrible. I meant did you see that photo on my last post? Awful. And that was the best of the lot.


This morning is a new day. This morning Scrag ate breakfast and kept it down and laughed and smiled and played and ran around... and I said: Off to Kindy!!! Did I ever get around to mentioning that he started pre-school/kindy this week? Yeah. A great week to start. (I rang them to check it was OK to bring him and they said, yes as long as he has stopped vomiting. And I said, right, we'll be there!)

So now I have... one at school. One at kindy. And one boy who spent last night vomiting but this morning wants to play PS2. And eat. And go to school (is he kidding me??)

And he has not vomited since about 12.30am this morning.
So I am hopeful that the vomits are behind us. (Please please please let the vomits be behind us).

And then the sun came out.
And it felt like spring so I threw open the windows and doors and said... hello world!

And then I checked my emails.
There was one from my friend and fellow-blogger Lyns who I was meant to hook up with this weekend. She has Swine Flu.

Oh no!!!! She has Widgey staying with her from Christchurch (where the earthquake was) for a conference. It's been planned for months. It's Widge's first time in Auckland. Ever. Poor Lyns. Poor Widgey.

Where can Widge stay? Who can she go to conference with?
Surely not the Plague House? Surely not the housebound mama?

I lay out the predicament before my loving husband and he said, Sure, she can stay here (the vomiting seems to have stopped remember; and it's still better than Swine Flu). And he said, sure you can go to conference tomorrow with Widgey in Lyns place. (Oh I love you my hubby, I really do, no matter what I may have said last night when I was cross and PO'd about the puking and all...)


So. The sun has come out and Widgey is coming to stay with me!!!
I'm going to put her in Miss Fab's Pretty Bedroom (Miss Fab can crash in our room on the couch)
It will be like hosting a celebrity!
I can't wait to meet her!
She gets to stay at my house (my ex-plague house... please let the puking have stopped for good...)

I am so pumped. My week has just turned from totally crappy to unbelievably great.

Poor Lyns. I'm sorry to steal Widgey away... I am so sad you have Swine Flu...

But I can't help being really really stoked that I get to have Widge at my house :)

And to top it all off, look at THIS!!! Yet another Miracle...

What is it????

Why, the bottom of my laundry basket of course!! Never before seen empty since the day it was bought. I have conquered the laundry! YeeeHaaar!!!

Things are lookin' up!

It is cool to think that 2 of my favourite bloggers will get to meet and hang out this weekend. Maybe one day I will get to meet one or more of you lovely people in person if you're ever down this end of the country.

Hope you have a fab time at the conference...it'll be awe inspiring I am sure!

So much to love in this post Simoney! {Except for poor Lyns....my sympathies Lyns}. Firstly, congrats on the laundry basket. You deserve a medal of some description...or some chocolate or something. I hope you and Widge have a fab time hanging out at the conference. I assumed you two already knew each other in the flesh. What fun! Love to you both and I'll be praying for an awesome weekend for all of you. I hope you will feel completely released to sit and enjoy and conference and not worry about the homefront. Meredy xo.
