It reminds me of The Plague and The Scarlet Fever, but Maisie has The Croup. Apparently its croup season and of course as its a VIRAL infection she can’t get anything for it. So she has been living on a diet of Calpol and ice lollies. Medical advice is split into two groups – to steam or not to steam. But general advice is to make sure they keep calm as if they get worked up they can find it very difficult to breather (Croup is a viral infection of the larynx, and can swell up the vocal cords and effect breathing)

She has this horrible barking cough, and feels out of sorts all night, but hoping it will clear for her birthday party at the weekend. Just finished doing the party bags, not have to get on with the bunting, which will be a lo-tech affair, as I have no thread, so might double sided sticky it or staple it… Eeeek! And if I see another bloody bear…
