The only word I can think of at the moment is crap.
Its been really crappy time for us.
I don't like to moan and groan, and feel sorry for myself, but today I'm going to!
We've had such a crappy Christmas. If it wasn't for the girl's excitement at opening presents, leaving a glass of milo and cookie out for Santa or the carrot for Rudolph, it would have been a very dull day.
I had a terrible bout of gastroenteritis the day before Christmas Eve, and Cherub was also sick with a vomiting bug, so our Christmas was a quiet day spent at home. Mum came up for a "light lunch". But there was no pavlova, or even a mince tart for dessert. :(
Then Popette got the horrid vomiting bug the day after we had our belated Christmas lunch with the in-laws.
Thankfully I felt better by my birthday (NYE) and we had a really nice BBQ lunch at home (again with Mum), which actually felt more like a Christmas lunch. After the shocker week of us 3 girls being sick, it was nice just to be home. I even felt well enough to have a few glasses of bubbly with Hubby to celebrating our birthday's and NYE.

Then it all turned to crap AGAIN.
The next afternoon I started getting a soar throat, so off to the doctors I went on the Friday. The doctor told me I had a throat infection, then over the next couple of days I started to lose my voice, by the time Popette's birthday party came round I could hardly talk. Went back to same doctor who told me there was nothing he could do for me. Then over next couple days I felt worse started coughing and had low grade temps. Was worried I wouldn't be better by the time we had to travel to Brisbane, so Hubby & I went to a different doctor as he was having dizzy spells!

I'm hoping we get better soon, and that the girls don't catch it from us. We are taking all the precautions: giving them Vitamin C tablets, cold & flu gummies, Vick's on their back and the vapouriser on for the slightest snuffle...keeping our fingers & toes crossed they don't get sick, cause I've had enough of this crap!
