Joint art

chickenpox
How do you entertain a stir crazy child who can’t be sent to nursery? Well there’s ‘I’ll draw the face and you draw the chickenpox’ but that only takes up five minutes. I tried a long muddy walk as you can’t spread the lurgy that way and I thought it might wear him out. Well I’m worn out but he’s still full of beans at the moment busy being the ‘cushion monster’ (you unzip the settee cushions, place them over your head and arms and growl menacingly).

I always used to think that my boys should have given me fair warning before they became 'ill'. It takes such energy!

I hope you don't get it Julie! My three children had it when they were little (baby only months old!) shortly followed by their mum. And I definitely suffered more than they did!
