    Sorry to hear that you and Star have been unwell. It would annoy me too with the school being more bothered about attendance records than whether a child was fit to be at school. I dislike the focus on attendance anyway – children can’t help being ill. Glad to hear you’ve got your car back and sounds like you have a nice weekend planned. Thanks for hosting -#WotW

    Sorry to hear you and Star have been poorly this week, there are so many illnesses doing the rounds at the moment it’s hard to avoid picking something up. The whole attendance thing with schools is annoying, rewarding children for coming to school unwell doesn’t bode well for the future at all. I hope you have a nice weekend and manage to get outdoors x #wotw

    Hi Anne, it’s that time of year and having school-aged children doesn’t help. I’ve been eating plenty of oranges and making berry smoothies in the hope that it will help keep my husbands sniffles at bay. I hope you start to feel stronger again soon… I don’t understand what it is with schools and illness. The schools here will hold pupils back if they miss a certain amount of lessons, but I’m like you and wouldn’t send mine when they were ill, apart from not wanting to spread germs the best thing for a quicker recovery is rest… It must be wonderful having your car back again, I can’t believe you had your accident so long ago. Just don’t let Graham drive it!

    Hope everyone is feeling better now, schools and their attendance records annoy me sometimes.. I work at a school and it’s such a shame when the kids don’t feel well yet they are there anyway.. Hope you have a lovely weekend

    Some weeks just seem to be plagued by illness. Hope you are both feeling better. How lovely to have your car back. I love the independence of being able to jump in the car when I need to. The more time I spend talking to school, the more I think their hands are tied on so many accounts. Attendance seems to be one of those. They have great charts and graphs to prove their point, but I don’t see why sitting in the library makes a difference to achievement. Hope your week is better. #wotw
