So this week was a challenging one. Our little family got very sick. Come Monday Michael came home from work complaining about aches and pains in his body. This is nothing unusual as he rides his mountain bike a lot and quite often has muscle aches if he hasn’t stretched properly after each ride. By late Monday evening, I knew something wasn’t quite right as he was laid up on the sofa with no appetite and abnormally inactive and quiet. He went to bed early and I was left thinking maybe he’d overdone it at the weekend riding and too many late nights.
