Is there a doctor in the house?

I have been surrounded by sick and ailing people recently - and I include myself in that list. First my Teenager-in-Waiting had some minor surgery, then last week my dear old Dad was taken into hospital with various ailments and he'll be there for a few more days at least. He's stable and really enjoying all of the nurses fussing over him.

Since Monday I've been feeling unwell and today the doctor (sadly not the one pictured, but any excuse to post a photo of my future husband) has confirmed I have a chest infection. Splutter, splutter....I'm going to be off work for a few days and I clearly don't have the strength to do the pile of ironing waiting expectantly in the spare room, or the paperwork piled up on my desk. No, I will have to fill my time with reading blogs, making a cuppa, perhaps a piece of toast....reading more blogs, leaving longer than usual comments, maybe more tea. Later if I get bored with that I have a copy of PS. I Love You to watch on DVD. I like the look of Gerard Butler who's in it. Just what the doctor ordered.

Now if I could just get Dr Doug Ross to rub some vapour rub on my chest......

Mmmmm, I don't want to burst your bubble, especially as you are sick but I think George clooney might be mine??? Sorry you aren't well. I suggest chocolate and cake and much lolling as time and tested cure. Let me know what you think of PS I love you - my dvd got stuck half way through and I never saw all of it!

PS - thanks for the fab award!!!

Oh, Dr Ross is MY future husband. There has to be a lot gained from having time off work ill yet not being too ill to enjoy some free time. And it is very important that you relax with books, vidoes, blogs, perhaps you should even do some on line shopping from the comfort of your living room. It always makes me feel a lot better!! Get well soon.

Hi there, I'm so sorry that you are not feeling well and about all the problems in your family. I'm not even starting listing all my ailments, but I can assure you that I'm more in need of Dr Ross aka the gorgeous George than you!!!
PS I love you is a bit sad (cried in buckets) - just do not watch the deleted scenes!!! What about Mamma Mia or something more cheerful??? Wish you all the best. Ciao. Antonella

Take care - I cam home from work early today with the shivers, sore throat and banging headache but I am feeling a lot better now.
I hope your dad gets well soon - my dad was v ill earlier this year but is now back to his old self.

Welsh Girl, you are labouring under the wrong conclusion. He is definitely mine, so gerroff.

Rosiescribble - hello there, and you too are confused about my fiance. Nevermind, you can be a bridesmaid.

Antonella, again - step away from the Clooney! What is it with you women, you're all so jealous!

Jane - glad you're feeling better. My Dad has been ill for several years now, and like yours has a serious illness, but he's as tough as old boots and he's hanging in there. Thanks.

Sorry you are not feeling well. Especially when you have so much on your plate. I wish we were neighbors so I could come over and make you some tea. I promise I would leave the little man with a sitter so her wouldn't destroy your house!!! Sending you well wishes and lots of dreams of your future hubby Mr. Clooney.

There is plenty of George to go round. Although I know which bit I want...

Get well soon honey! xx

see you there! said...

Naps cure a lot of things. Steaming tea, a good book, and a nod off. Hope you do ignore the chores, relax and get better.

Sorry to hear you are not feeling well. Believe me, even when there IS a doctor (who deals with life/death situations) in the house it really isn't any better!! He, on the other hand, well, you know what they say about doctor's as patients! Take care and hope you are back to your usual self soon.
Mervat xxoo

Claire said...

I agree with Lunarossa, PS I love you is really sad. I cried the ENTIRE way through the film from start to finish. Get well soon.

notSupermum said...

YM - I wish you were my neighbour too! That would be fab and I'd get my tea made for me.

MTJAM - Which bit would that be then? ;-)

Darla, I'm doing very well at ignoring the chores. Mind you, so are my girls too!

Mervat, I can imagine what it must be like! I'm sure doctors make the worst patients.

Claire, hello and thanks for stopping by. I still haven't watched the film yet, but I have hankies at the ready for when I do!
