Mum Flu – 5 Reasons To Feel Sorry For Yourself


  1.  No one gives a s**t ! 😫
  2.  You are still expected to carry out all ‘wife & mother’ duties inc cleaning,washing,cooking ,all childcare and hold down a full time job.😤
  3. Your husband tells you to ‘rest’ then leaves you with 2 screaming kids to go play golf.🤕
  4. You finally fall asleep on the sofa only for a delivery man to bang on the front door with a parcel for your neighbour.😭
  5. Your husband’s offer of rubbing Vicks VapoRub into your back turns into a lion stalking its prey!😳

Let me know what happens in your house when you fall sick. Do you get waited on hand & foot or kicked out of bed and ‘just get on with it’ ?

    Well, you see, I simply don’t do mum flu because I’m a stay at home ad. I also don’t do man flu because I think men are – greneral – awful at admitting they are ill. Anything health issue below the neck is often ignored. And no, I do not get waited on when I am ill by my wife! #TheList

      Men are awful at admitting they re ill ? My husband spends most of the winter ill with a cold ot cough and telling me so every second of the day .

    Ha ha, the delivery thing happens to me every time! I have to admit though that hubby is pretty good at helping me out when I’m really ill, unfortunately he’s away 10 weeks at a time and I usually get ill when I’m the only one here to look after the kids and the zoo we call a home 😞 #TheList
