Sorry, this is going to be a moany thread... But whilst stomach-flu wise both the kids and myself are much better today, I am feeling really down and depressed about everything. All I want to do is lie in bed with a blanket over my head - but with the children off school that is out of the question. All I have done since Monday is entertain them from the minute I get up to the minute they go to bed (which is much too late), and I am tired and cranky and just want some time to myself every now and then. And this is only day 3 of the holidays, God help me! Husband doesn't help at all, just tells me what a bad mother I am for not enjoying every second I spend with my wonderful children, which obviously just makes me feel even worse and more depressed. Sorry for the long rant and self-pity, no need to reply, just wanted to get this out of my system. Now back to more game playing, hurray!
