I Got... Mail!!! **And THE Lurgy**

...Yes indeedily, Mr Postman arrived yesterday with a packet all the way from America... poor bloke, nearly had his arm torn off when I made a grab for it... and in the packet was... Wendy Vecchi's new book... signed... check it out!!! *tis a FAB new book too!!!!* Ellen got it for me... how lovely is she?? I tell you how lovely... 100% diamond lovely... and she also added in some Liquid Scrap Dots... which is a bit like silicone glue but better... I am so gonna play with that later...



And... I also see this divine tag in the envelope... check out those colours and the inkyness... perfection... loving this tag so much... and the back of it... how cool is that sentiment... as if I would chuck this away!!!!




So... a lovely post day which just cheered me up no end seeing as... nay and thrice... I am suffering with ... *pauses for dramatic effect* MANFLU! Tis true! Thing is, I am totally to blame... there was me saying to my friend the other day that I don't get colds etc cos I eat loads of garlic... mmm, famous last words! So, I spent yesterday feeling ever so sorry for myself... snuggled on the sofa with twenty layers of clothes, a hot water bottle and a fleecy blanket.. and my AlfieCat who is just so intuitive and knows when Mummy feels poorlysick... When I finally left my sick-sofa he snuggled on down a bit more... and I had to go and get Grim to take a couple of pics of him... so cute!!! Bless him, he is a little darling and he is always by our side whenever one of us is poorly... it is like he knows that we need some cuddles.




Anyways... I am asking Mr Blogger to schedule this for me... am heading off to my bed and keeping it all X'd that I feel better in the morning... you know what? I feel so rough... I can't even eat a donut... or have a ciggie... now that is when I know I am ill ROFL Hope you have a goodly day... and just to make sure I don't pass on my germs, I have typed this wearing rubbergloves and a mask LOL ..... TTFN!

Am so sorry you are unwell Hels. I do hope you get better soon. Was hoping to see you at Artisan on Friday, but I guess you won't be there........hopefully we will meet another time. Take care, xx

Val said...

Ohhh Hels - so sorry you have the lurgy - I have been down with something as well - not sure that it is flu though - but feel grim!! Take care and look after yourself.

Love the WV book - so much stuff in there.

Lovely post to receive! Hope by the time you get up you feel better. Got the book on Saturday, though not signed, sadly! Enjoy. Ellen's tag is great.

I can almost hear the purr from here. Hope that the man-flu pays only a brief visit. Take care of yourself.

OMG, MANFLU, that is positively the worsist kinda flu!!

It will probably take at least 4 weeks of playing to the gallery ~well that's how long it takes in this house when they have it! The lesser girlieflue just needs a shopping trip to feel better.

Big hugs and sending cyber tissues and hot whiskey and lemon to sip (actually no I think I will keep that, and just send the tissues ... bottoms up!)

Hope you are feeling better today - I adore that little "This better not go in the trash" bit on the back of the tag :) How funny is that! Must seek out that book. Like Tim, wendy is very inspirational and does fab work. At least you have something fun to curl up with LOL!

Hope you are feeling better Hels - not nice to get the lurgy so early in the season - but then again not nice to get the lurgy full stop. You better be better for the workshop in a couple of weeks - soooo looking forward to it. Bring the book with you I'd love to have a look. Take care. Luv B xxx

Feel better soon and enjoy the new book!

Awww hope you feel better soon babe :)
*hugs* Heather x

Rosie said...

I suspect the problem is that you've been off to furrin parts (eg London) where you've picked up some dreadful lurgy. Feel better soon - you should with Alfie for company!

Pat said...

Wow, a signed book! How neat is that. It is a great book, and you will enjoy.

The tag is special, too.

Get well.
Hugs, Pat
