Desperate Measures


MasterM has 'flu.

YES...
I DO KNOW that he is going to South America
NEXT WEEK.


I have prescribed a dose of Family Magic

1.
the Lemsip Mug
2.
the Happy Teddy for Poorly People
3.
the Movie.

(It would appear that
the best movie for Poorly MEN is
Lord of the Rings.

Move over, Dumbo.)

Poor Master M. Having just defused a potentially nasty travel situation/issue I have total empathy for Master M.

Lynn said...

Aw, gee, just when he's got some jaunty new footwear and everything! Here's hoping that the Family Magic does the trick...

Becca said...

I am sorry your son is ill but how fortunate to nurse him through the flu before he leaves rather than hear of him sick overseas! Plus your remedies are hilarious so getting the flu in your house can't be all bad.

Love that you were able to find that photo of him.

Get well soon MasterM.... you have some incredible adventures to be on..

This is a pre-disaster. It means that nothing bad can happen during the trip. Be glad of it, it will be gone soon, then a healthy trip awaits.

Urgh, that's bad luck- but then as the others have said, also very good luck to be safe from the dreaded bug during the trip.

Hopefully Lord of the Rings willl scare the beastly bug away.

Better he gets it now than once he's left - here's to a speedy recovery - long live the magic of poorly teddy

kristina said...

What wonderful flu remedies. I do think the NHS should prescribe poorly teddies and special Lemsip mugs--I think we would all recover much more quickly. I'm positive Master M will be feeling better very soon! K x

Eek - poor Master M. Lets hope it's a fast passing flu. Dance poorly teddy, dance.

Gina said...

Hope you get better very quickly Master M!

driftwood said...

Lord of the Rings you say?

Oh No Get better soon Master M!

Atleast the movies will keep him busy they are very long indeed!

MrM said...

I think Poppy is an important part of the get well cure, even if she does not have quite her youthful looks in the photo.

JuliaB said...

oh dear! Hope he gets better soon! x

Jackie said...

You know your a grown up when you have to make your own lemsip..and tuck yourself up in bed.

(Now I know you are worried about the Peru trip but did getting your poorly friends to breathe all over him isn't going to stop him.)

carolyn said...

Yep the whole trilogy!
Hope he soon feels better.

farm mom said...
