On sickly, freezer and cut

Last week I did not feel good as down with a mild tonsillitis.  Usually I would just take those lozenges and that is it.  Unless I were very ill then I would have no choice but drag myself to the clinic doorstep.

In the clinic

Not only me that hit the virus, but Jay was also sick last Friday.  He was feverish on Thursday night so I have to bring him to see doctor the next day.  He was feverish, have tonsillitis and vomiting. However he got better on Saturday after a day of good rest and medication.  And it started again yesterday.

Knocked out after school

Jay was vomiting and feverish in school. Accordingly to him, he vomited during his BM class which was before the recess.  By right, the school should contact me to pick him up if he is not feeling well.  They did called me on the 1st occasion early of the year when he was sick, but not this time.  By the time the school finished, he was very sick and in tears. Anyway, he still have his medication from last Friday, so I gave him the same stuff.  After spent almost the whole afternoon nap at home, he is better this morning. No more fever and he could eat well, so he is off to school today.

Face mask to stop spreading viruses around

As for me, I am still recovering from my flu and cough.  Still coughing like madwoman, and I could only take the cough syrup in the evening as it would cause dizziness and sleepiness. But at least my fever has subdued.  Jay and I both have a good afternoon sleep yesterday.

Bye fridge. When will I see you again?

If it isn't bad enough, we have our fridge sent to workshop last Friday.  It has been a week now and still no call from the delivery guy to send our fridge back.  The freezer function was not working and everything defrosted.  Luckily I have my mum and a friend to thank for as they borrow their freezer and fridge to store my stuff.  Life is not so easy without a fridge.


Since no fridge (and freezer), I could only do the buy-and-cook at home.  Meaning, buy the meats in the afternoon and cook them up immediately for dinner. I do miss my fridge! 

After the cut, enjoying his reward

And check out on Jamie who had his hair cut yesterday!  Do you have any problem bringing your younger children to barber/salon? I have a problem with Jamie as he refuses to cut his hair.  But yesterday we have to coax him with a lollipop and after few minutes of crying, he finally settled down and let the barber did his job.  I dread bringing him to a barber.  Every time I must think of a way or snack to coax him to cooperate. And whenever he cuts his hair, I have to sit with him on the chair and been covered all over with his hair!  Not a fun experience! Lol!

Get a new fridge, not expensive these days - get an energy saving one...but of course, these days, I do not think they are made to last - not like the ones in the good old days.

Looks like there is a virus going round, viral fever is harder to treat than just an ordinary fever, flu or cough. Try cordyceps for your cough - they have those in capsules...but they do not come cheap. Good quality ones over RM100 a bottle...and I do like HURIX traditional herbal flu and cough syrup or capsules too.

A remedy my sister gave was - get a Sunkist orange, cut off the top part, rub with salt and steam for 10 minutes...and then eat it all up, not the skin, of course. She claimed that just one orange and her cough was gone!

My Ayden is feverish too for the third day now.

Being sick yourself not enough but have to take care of Jay who was also sick. Plus your fridge also got sick. Wishing all speeding recovery and your fridge will be home soon.
