How to survive chicken pox

Keep cake supplies topped up
Administer cuddles liberally

Don't skimp on the calamine cream

The good old fashioned remedies are the best - oats in the bath (or Aveeno colloidal bath powder) and a spoonful of bicarb for good measure (in the bath, not in the patient)

Order in some extra patience (and gin)

Remember that this too shall pass...

Give up on sleep for at least a couple of nights and treat yourself to some seriously nice coffee beans for freshly ground coffee instead

Remember baths can be a great distraction technique as well as cooling them down and relieving the itch (more oats please) - we're on our 2nd bath of the day and it's only 10am.

Repeat: this too shall pass...

Administer more cake. Repeat as required.

  1. Ooooo, sorry! How awful for you all.
    More cake!
    More gin!
    This too shall pass (and then at least you can tick one childhood illness off the list!).


Come on in, the water's lovely.
