This weekend has been planned for ages. I am staying in home of ds and dil with their two children aged 5 and 2. Their parents have gone for a long awaited and well deserved weekend away. I come here a lot and we all get in really well, but I have never stayed over like this. The problem is I feel thick with a cold and ache all over - it came on soon after the parents left on Friday. It has been such a struggle even though the children are really good. Now - do I admit all this when the parents come home or just hold it together and make my escape before they notice. I don’t want them to feel guilty and spoil the memories of their weekend, but despite disinfecting every surface I am so afraid the children will be ill this week too - and it might be considered I have been thoughtless in not just admitting how rough I have been and let them decide or not decide to come home early. I guess it’s all a bit late in the day now to come clean but what do other Gransnetters think? They will be home in a couple of hours! Help!
I'm sick to death of it - anyone else?
What on earth do I do? - too close to Christmas
I don't understand this trend - AIBU?
