I am not ill, I am not ill..

All this hype over swine flu, I'm trying to ignore it. It's hard when you're getting invitations for vaccination s for your kids, yourself, spouse through the post over the past few weeks. I don't often watch the news (no TV still hurrah!) but do glimpse at the online newspapers. My elderly neighbours asked me today if we were going to have the jabs, and the answer I gave brought a tissue to one of their mouths. I know the power of guilt is being used to make us get it to protect the vulnerable but after discussions with friends and family, we decided to abstain. Midwives and paediatricians have said they wouldn't have it nor give it to their children. So as the headache and dry throat I have persists I hope it's just down to tiredness..
Anyhow here're are a few recent photos:

The younger ones entertain themselves while M has his running club and Hz entertains himself in the sink. I hope the interest in the dishes continues into the teenage years and later..



Assallamu'alaikum Wr. Wb.

Assalamu aleikum Sis

Swine flu made its rounds here in spring. It's really nothing! I'm certain we had it too (we didn't go to doctors, but friends were positively diagnosed). Hubby was very very bad (fever, vomiting, weak, headache, runny nose, sore throat, coughing, etc) for a few of days or so. DS1 was bad, but not as DH, rest of the kids had various degrees of fever and symptoms similar to a normal cold.

I think the allegations of the danger in taking the jab are too serious to even consider it for a minute.

The normal flu is said to actually take more lives than H1N1.

Assalamu aleikum
