The Inevitable...

Well it's happened. I'd hoped I would have a couple of months before it came to this but no. In my third week of college, I'm having to take the day off because I have an ill child. I knew, as a mum of three, that there would undoubtedly come a time where someone was ill and I'd have to stay home, I just didn't think it would happen so  quickly! And now I'm crapping myself about how much I'll be missing today - I have texted a classmate to let me know what homework we have and I know I'll be able to get notes from someone, but it's not the same as actually being there. 

Elise's 'not well' face. 

Anyway, she seems to be on the mend today so fingers crossed we're back to normal tomorrow and I'm only missing one day - I know it could be worse - she's been not well since Monday but Stewart was off work on Monday so that was fine, and I'm off on a Tuesday anyway. If it had started today I'd have had to take the rest of the week off. Send us some luck please!


  1. It is inevitable, but I found it doesn't happen that often. Children of adults that study seem to be healthier!! College staff that teach adult learners really understand though and know that adults will do their best to catch up. Even though the children can't help falling ill, it is frustrating.

  2. I am glad that your instructor was understanding about your being gone. I have known some that weren't. Good luck to you on the rest of the week!

  3. She has a beautiful not well face, let me tell ya! My little lad looks like death warmed up when he's ill.

    It's gonna happen, as you knew. I remember when I started back at work I was off within a couple of weeks because my little lad was ill and then I was off a few months after because he had to go into hospital. There's always something.

    Hope you manage to catch up. Hugs to all xx

  4. Don't worry, there'll be plenty more of those and you'll still feel bad about missing lectures but that's the great thing about making lots of friends at uni though - the notes and the updates. Don't sweat it! Hope all get well soon.
