I was wondering the same when I got a parent to sign for the Calpol I had to administer earlier - this child has had chest infection, ear infection and now a nasty cough all since January - costing me a fortune for replacement pages for medicine book!

Cant you keep one medication page as a reference page and just keep photocopying it? There is definitely something in the air, everyone seems to be ill. We even had our network meeting cancelled as everybody was too ill!

Had a letter home from pre-school today saying they have a confirmed case of measles, never had that before its usually about nits! I know there is a huge problem in Wales, I hope not but wouldn't be surprised if it effects other areas as well before long.

In 20 years of childminding have never had anyone come down with measles.
