Just my luck!

I awoke yesterday to just over 2 inches of snow - unusual for Chez Tales From The Plain. A took 5 hours to get into work, school was closed (as it is today) - the first time this has happened in all of my teaching career. So did I go out and throw snowballs? Lie down and make snow angels? Grab a sledge and slide down the (admittedly not very steep) hill behind the houses?

Did I buffalo!

Since Sunday I have been experiencing some serious room spinning, with the totally weird sensation of thinking I will fall off the floor (not fall down, which is a totally different feeling). I have labyrinthitis, which I'd never heard of before the doctor told me I had it, so I'm off work this week and in no state to leave the house. I can walk across the room if I concentrate really hard, which wears me out no end. Yesterday I felt worse and the room span even when I sat down (today it's a bit easier). Since it's viral, there's nothing I can do apart from tough it out, keep the fluids up, take some drugs to try to counteract the nausea and look at the snow, which is now at least four and half inches deep and hope A is OK, since he didn't risk coming home and stayed over in a hotel near work.

All that snow.... and no inclination to play. Sigh....

Aw, poor baby. But just you stay put, you hear? Labarynthitis + playing in the snow = trip to nasty adult orthopaedic surgeon.
Keep warm and safe and get better.

Are they not as nice as the children's orthopaedic surgeon then?

I never had a snow day during my teaching career either :-(
What awful bad luck for you though! I am feeling extremely sorry for you. Get well soon.

Oh poor you, that is bad timing...may be it is your body telling you to rest after working all holiday?!

We finally got a snow day today, more an ice day since apart from the A roads (and not even all of them) the roads are closed by the Police.

Hope you feel better soon.
