Happy Mother's Day!!!

Allie was all excited about mother's day. Her teacher made all the Mums little hampers with flowers, biscuits, cards and four gift vouchers. She put in a lot of effort into it. The vouchers were for the following: "Coffee in bed", "Breakfast in bed", "I'll do anything you ask" and "A free back-rub".
I was feeling a bit ill the previous day, so I went to bed early. When I woke up there were coffee and biscuits ready for me. It was a lovely start to a not so lovely day.
I was still in bed when my head started itching. I thought it was another case of the head-lice (another long story), but as I started scratching, I felt little bumps on my head. Just then Jake came in and started joking about how I must go take a bath, for my face is breaking out. Not something I like to hear.
taking a hint, I went off to take a shower. As I got undressed, I noticed something in the mirror. My whole body was cover in small, red dots. Upon closer inspection, I realized that it wasn't head-lice, or pimples, or red-dots or mosquito-bites. It was full-blown very itchy Chicken Pox. It IS full-blown very itchy Chicken Pox!
What a mother's day present was that?
Now, Allie is staying with my sister while I am sick. I'm all alone. Jake will come stay with me from tomorrow.
That back-rub voucher seems like an excellent idea right now.
Hope you enjoyed your mother's day!
