Poorly Prof


The Prof never made it to Denmark.
He came down with a temperature on the train to the airport and I ordered him home.
I put him to bed just after I picked up the Berlingo ( which passed it's MOT with some financial help)
and in bed he's stayed.
I've been up and down those stairs 100 times so far
Who needs friggin weightwatchers?

    Anytime I could I used to walk the stairs. The best cheap gym ever.

  14. Our best wishes to your sweetie. Hope he's better soon for both your sakes.

  15. Good thing he started feeling unwell before he got on the plane, and you are able to minister to him at home. As for taking the Prof's temp, your comment reminded me of a scene in an old film, Carry on Doctor, where I believe a daffodil was substituted for the thermometer. Hey ho!!
    Hopefully he will soon be on the mend.

  16. My mother (a model) was stopped from going to Denmark because of the war starting. I was going to Denmark, then I was stopped by the advent of my daughter. Why was the Prof going?

  17. So sorry your husband (doesn't that sound wonderful?) is sick. Sweet that you are being waited one. You're off to a good start.

    Through all my years of marriage I think I've never admitted to sickness strenuously enough to be waited on.

  18. Heal quickly, Chris.

  19. Hope your husband has a quick recovery. Lucky he didn't get sick in Denmark instead ...

  20. Sorry to hear he is ill and couldn't make the trip. Get better soon Chris!
    Um, Weight Watchers isn't necessary today - as long as you aren't rewarding yourself for each trip up and down those stairs.

  23. Does he have a bell to tinkle when he wants you or does he just shout?

  24. The poorly prof lays in his bed
    feverish and thumping head
    Good man John at his beck and call
    Man flu loves the fuss an' all
    The stair mountain takes a toll on knees
    but John scales those heights with ease
    Later he will clean out the coop
    And make a bowl of chicken soup. x

  25. Oh, Jeez, he looks TERRIBLE! - and why's he wearing a dressing gown in bed?

    Get well quickly, Chris. You can't expect your hubby to be doing ALL the work!

  26. I do like the use of that word 'ordered' - keep up the good work John.
    Methinks that Prof of yours works too hard, he does often seem to catch anything that is going round.

  27. Awww. Hopefully he will be better soon.

  28. Just good nursing and lots of rest! That'll get him thru.

  29. Heh, in Oz most of our houses are what you call bungalows, and what we call... houses. :) The only time I lived in a two story house, a bit of a party share house as a teen, the poor guy who had the only downstairs room constantly had everyone pinching his jumpers and stuff because we were too lazy to go upstairs to get our own. :)
