Wordless Wednesday (with captions)


Is that a DUCK on my roof?


It is. A duck. On my roof.


I wonder what he is doing up there?


Oh. A romantic getaway for two.


Back to reality.

My poor sick baby sleeping {while I steal a few minutes of me-time and ask the Universe some very deep questions...}


How many nappies can you change in one day?

13,201 when diarrhoea is involved...

{at least that's what it feels like. Change a nappy, smell a stink, wipe a backside, change a nappy, smell a stink...}


How many days can a schoolgirl stay off school?

Until she is eating again. Can't send her to school until she can eat.
And walk without assistance.

*Sigh*


How long can a nappy bag stay on top of a roof? {yes it's still there}

Until the wind blows it within reach and mummy can get rid of it herself, I guess.


And what do you do when you are so tired from changing 13,202 diarrhoea nappies, washing drying and folding 14,327 loads of sick-up bedding clothes and towels, emptying and sterilising 1400 sick bowls, dishing out pamol, wiping fevered brows, watching endless mindless kids cartoons and cooking dinner for the ones still eating?

Why, you iron your tea towels of course! So satisfying.

{help! I really am going crazy! get me out of here I've lost it lostit lost it lost it it it ititititititititit...}

How are you managing to keep blogging and laughing?! You are such a trooper and I hope this horrible week is over quickly and replaced by a much brighter one next week. Good on you for smiling through it all! And as for those ducks! Absolutely quackers!

Erm as for the duck love ontop of your house, is your roof nappy attracting them?? LOL

Oh my gosh I think I would go nuts right with you! Maybe the ducks are on the roof for the nappie? Rofl. That would be weird. Now I'm off to find out why on earth it's on the roof!

Thanks for linking up!!!!

I feel for you. I really do. But this post brought some much needed comic relief. Not sure that was your intention, but thanks. Happy WW! Mine isn't so wordless either.

Mon said...

Love the ducks...how romantic. Hehe. At least its sunny and warm today. There's a bonus...and the washing will dry.

Rosemarie said...

Feel better, little ones!

Allyson & Jere said...

You poor thing. You really MUST have lost it, since you IRONED anything, much less your tea towells.

So sorry your kids are icky sick. Hope they get over it STAT! And you can get back to a diaper free of poo existence.

Simoney said...

Thanks everybody!!! See this is why blogging is so great! You may be stuck in the house with sick kids but you can still feel CONNECTED to your friends all over the world, and get such nice messages that your sucky day/week is made brighter! A few points...
Erm the nappy bag was on the garage roof. the ducks on the house roff. I think there's a reason for that because...
... the nappy bag has been there *cough* since the beginning of AUGUST {blush}
Right. I am ashamed. And I'm off right now to fetch it down by hook or by crook.

Nikki said...

Oh dear, gastro sucks big time! Hope they feel better soon!
Ironing tea towels? You're starting to lose it!

Tammy said...

Yep, when you pull out the iron to do your tea towels, you have lost it! Sorry to hear that another one has fallen...and that your daughter is still under the weather! Not good! Hope everyone is feeling better soon.

Danielle said...

Love the ducks!! Hope your daughter gets better!!

meeks said...

I hope life returns to "normal" soon!

Caitlin said...

Wow, I only have one littlie and feel the same way! I love that you remain humorous even in the hardest of times!

Tylaine said...

Well you still have your humour! :) Sorry your kids are sick. That's so hard when there's not much you can do. Hope they feel better soon! :)

Melinda said...

Hi Simoney! Love the photos, but am so sorry about your sick kiddos. They're so sad and vulnerable when they're sick! Sorry I didn't get over here yesterday, but I'm tweeting your post today. Thanks so much for linking up this week! ;0)
