Mummy malaise

I'm awake but haven't yet opened my eyes. I know it's going to hurt to do so. My throat is scratchy. I can feel that awful sicky feeling in my stomach. My head is thumping.
I think I'll just roll over and call up work and tell them I can't make it into day. I reach over when... "Mum! Muuuuuuuuuummmmmm!'
Damn, that's right. Kids. No possible way I can bury myself in bed and watch trashy TV while sipping Ribena in between naps.
"Muuuuuuummmmmmmmmmmmm!"
I lift my concrete-laden legs out of bed, my head heavy with the knowledge that it will be at least 14 hours before I can lay my body down again.
Sigh.
