We're free!

After nearly a week of quarantine for Oink Oink Flu, we're finally free.
Yes, after days of soup-making and eating, DVD-watching, reading, and messing about on computers, we finally have the all-clear to be out and about.
And just in time!
We were desperately in need of food and drink, not to mention fresh air.
It was bitterly cold when H. and I ventured out in search of provisions, but after her exile, she didn't wind a bit.
"Woo hoo!" she shrieked, as an icy gust of wind almost knocked her over. "I love it!"
I have to admit to feeling similarly elated this morning, when Husband was dispatched to work, and the kids to vacation care. Finally ... peace and quiet.
And to all who have asked, we still don't know if it actually was piggy flu or not. Would you believe it takes up to 10 days to get the results?
But the doctor said it didn't matter, as treatment and instructions to stay home would be the same anyway. I suppose so, but at least we'd know the trauma in the doctor's surgery had been worthwhile!
We worked our way through the contents of our fridge, freezer and pantry. Here, C. enjoys a healthy banana smoothie.

H. made pigs in blankets people
You wrap them up like this...

We knew she was feeling better the morning she woke up and asked for pancakes!

H. made an apple, lollipop-holder. As you do...

Ha! Ha! That apple lollipop-holder is hilarious! Very creative...

Glad to hear that you're all well again and clear of quarantine! You'll have some catching up to do now but glad the kids at least got to enjoy a bit of holiday camp before starting back in school.

So glad to hear you're out of quarantine! Yes I agree somehow knowing if it's the swine flu or regular flu makes a difference psychologically. I mean you can leave the house with regular flu whereas you can't with swine flu. Looks like you passed the time well though! :)
