My poor boy during his epic three hour nap this afternoon
Well, my original plan to do lots of Valentine's activities with the Podlings has gone for a Burton. Tom suddenly came down with a stomach bug last night and has been off school today. He told me as he lay in bed last night that he "needed a lot of look aftering". He was tired and lethargic all day and didn't eat a thing. He even took a three hour nap in the afternoon which is most unheard of these days (though it did mean he was actually still long enough for me to get a photo of him). He was ill again this evening, so it looks like my poorly boy will be home again tomorrow. It also looks like it might be spreading round the family as Mark appears to be going down with it this evening. Let's hope the bug stops there and that Lily, Emma and I manage to escape it.
