A strange weeks holiday

HomepicThis week was meant to provide me with a well earned rest,  we planned to go to Arnside (South Lakes) for 4 nights, what actually happened:

  • Thursday : Tessa gets virus infection, fever, sickness and diarrhea
  • Friday : Stephie gets the same infection
  • Saturday : Stephie and Tessa still ill
  • Sunday : Stephie and Tessa still ill
  • Monday : Tessa and Stephie both on the mend
  • Tuesday : The day we go to Arnside : Anna very ill,  I stay at home with her, Debbie takes Jenny, Stephie and Tessa to Arnside.  I get crippling stomach spasms for 5 minutes but it goes away
  • Wednesday : Anna still ill,  I need to go into Hospital for some checks, Jenny Starts to feel ill but is still enjoying the holiday
  • Thursday : Anna feeling better, we both go to join Debbie and the kids, it’s wonderful to be together
  • Friday : I collapse twice, with sickness, very high fevers and joint and muscle pain, we have to come home a day early, Debbie has to go back on the train to get the second car
  • Saturday : Jenny is ill and staying in all day, everyone else is feeling better,  I still have a fever but I do most days anyway so it’s no big deal.
  • Sunday : the forecast is sunny

So in summary – 1/2 a days holiday, still Arnside is wonderful,  I am so glad we discovered it.
