Miserable, full of cold, kids

My study is not going well this week as Hannah, Noah and Isaac are all sick. I have finally got Noah back to school today after three days off - we could tell he was recovering when we found him trying to open the bonnet of the car with some wires in the other hand! Isaac however is at the stage where he doesn't want me out of his sight but everything I do is wrong. He just asked for an ice-cream then immediately threw it on the floor, an improvement on yesterday I suppose, when I had to fight hard to get a grand total of just 250ml fluid in.
Paul is missing the fun by having three days away so this meant Isaac slept with me last night. "Slept" not altogether accurate, but I did get 4 hours of sleep in a row from 9.30 to 1.30.
Hannah is a bit sorry to be missing time from her social work placement in child protection but she only emerges from bed for a little while then goes back to sleep again. She has to get a doctor's certificate this afternoon, so hopefully they can decide whether or not she has a bacterial sinusitis following her viral infection.
Counting down the hours for Paul to be back (tonight) so I can sleep in Lily's empty bed downstairs, maybe take a walk by myself and have a little bit of quiet time to do some study. Then I'm assuming that over the w/e Paul and I'll get sick with the bug!
