viruses and snow

I've been thinking for a while about writing a post about how healthy everyone has been since we got to Bosnia, but didn't want to, convinced that I would jinx the good run. But all good things must come to an end and the boys have just come down with their first bug since we have been in Bosnia. It is a miracle we have been virus free for so long; a new environment, new nursery and exposure to whole load of new germs should have meant that they were stricken low on a regular basis. Indeed we were used to dealing with about 1 a month or so in the UK.

The good news that it isn't one of the vomiting ones (without doubt the worst sort, particularly when they infect you too). This is a fairly high temperature but nothing that we haven't seen and dealt with before. Calpol and Calprufen to the rescue and fingers crossed they will be bouncing back as good as new in a few days. They have a high temp, are sick enough not to go to nursery, but are not sick enough to lie quietly whilst I mop their fevered brows.

This bug has coincided with a bout of really quite nasty weather. It has rained/snowed all day today and is pretty slippery outside. It is certainly not the weather to lug sick children out in, so we have been house bound. We've made train tracks and read books, we've made cakes and watched DVDs, we've built blocks and painted pictures. They need to get better soon, I'm rapidly running out of indoor activities.
