    Default the dreaded man flu

    anyone else's DP milk every drop out of being sick? i feel like i have two babies now, a 7 month old and a 33 yr old and i can see this continuing for another day or two.
    when im sick i have to usually get on with things as per normal no matter how crap i feel. why cant men be like that?? arghh, DH complained that i didnt make his coffee right (not the right ratio of milk to coffee and sugar, that i dont check on him every 15 minutes - while im trying to cook dinner, feed baby, bath baby and put baby to sleep)
    driving me nuts

    I'm actually pleasantly surprised by my DP! He doesn't get sick often but he soldiers on. In fact he had the runs last night (sorry TMI!!) and he's at work today, he's a plasterer. Personally I would've stayed home but he just got up and went :/

    He'll still be contagious. He should have stayed home so he didn't spread his germs around to everyone.

    DH is horrible when he is sick, but so am I. Only I don't annoy myself DH drives me nuts when he is sick.

    He is a plasterer and works alone, though he was working with a builder today. He reckons it was just something he ate that didn't agree with him and he's all better today.
