Well the rash got worse. He's covered in it. So it was off to the doctors this morning. Doesn't look like measles cause there is no cough or cold symptoms. Phew!
The doc said it could be a number of different viruses that cause a rash. Without a definite answer I asked Mr Google again.
I think that its Roseola, also known as baby measles. It fits perfectly. Tenperature for 3 days, otherwise fine, and then a rash that lasts for about 3 days and a super grotty baby. Perhaps because he's so itchy, poor thing.
But! There is a small possibility that it could be Rubella. Therefore I won't be attending the baby shower tomorrow where there will be at least 2 pregnant women.

At least I won't have to stay up all night finishing the quilt.

Somehow today, amongst the bored kids and sick baby I managed to declutter half the kitchen. It feels sooo good. I hate doing the same house work over and over again and getting nowhere. I have a box and a basket full of things to go to the op-shop and a few things that need to be returned to their owners.
I think maybe my inspiration has come from my friend's new blog. Check it out here.
