There’s a scene from The Big Bang Theory where Sheldon is ill. We hear “Leonard! I’m sick!” and see Leonard frantically running out of the apartment, still trying to get dressed. We quickly discover that Sheldon is particularly dreadful to be around when he is ill, to the point that his friends have a code where they hide as much as possible to avoid having to look after him.
I really dislike the term ‘man-flu.’ When The Bloke is ill, he gets up and carries on as normal. When I’m ill, I turn into a snivelling, snotty mess and spend most of my time complaining.
Last week I was ill. Really ill. I had not done any supply teaching from October to January and was in perfect health. All of a sudden, I have a few days being around children in the classroom and I come down with the flu during the half-term week. It also happened to be the week where he had taken time off too, mainly so we could spend time together. Typical. Instead of going out together, I spent a large percentage of the week in my jammies and wrapped up in a blanket. Thankfully, The Bloke didn’t do a Leonard and run away, he looked after me, which I now feel a bit guilty about. I’m very lucky – it’s one of the many reasons why I’m marrying him…
It also meant that I couldn’t get half of the blogging and social media activities done that I wanted to do, and now I’m feeling back to normal I’ve discovered that I’m about a week behind. It’s amazing how quickly everything builds up over time, and I had to make an extra list over the weekend in an attempt to catch up, along with the bajillion posts I need to read.
So, at some point I’ll be popping over to say hello hopefully at some point this week! Hope you’re all doing well!
