Coughs & Sneezes...

... woe and alas... I have a lurgy... the dreaded one at that! Which is why I haven't blogged... infact, I haven't even picked up so much as an ink pad since a week ago, which is positively unheard of - I can't remember the last time I didn't make something everyday... and as for blogging, there I was, all smug that I had blogged nearly every day for a year... and then I was hit by this nasty bug. It started on Thursday morning and gradually got worse til I was sitting shivering and shaking on Thursday night. I slept Christmas Eve away - nearly the whole day in bed!! I managed to get thru Christmas Day - having a little Nanna Nap on the sofa helped - and I got through Boxing Day but today, I have resigned myself to this goodness-knows-what-dreaded-lurgy-type-ailment. Worse than the bubbling and crackling noise that my chest is making, and the sore throat that is making me sound like Darth Vader, and even more worse than the blocked nostrils is the fact that... I have lost my appetite!!! I fair forced my turkey down on Christmas Day and yesterday we had a "buffet" stylee tea and I couldn't even manage more than a chicken leg and a piece of cheese! That is when I know I am ill! So, I am succumbing to this thing I have got and I am off back to bed... well, I made it into the Room of Stash, looked at the mess and decided that bed is better... *quick, someone take my temperature... I am hallucinating now... bed better than stash... whatever next!!!*


Here is a piccie of my favest thing I made this year...


Hope you all had a lovely Christmas and got lots of lovely pressies and spent lots of lovely time with your nearest and dearest... Hopefully normal service will be resumed tomorrow and I will be inky and messy again... here's hoping! TTFN

Oh poor you! I have a sick 16 year old with the same thing. Fortunately I had it a week ago now so although some pressies still need making I was able to enjoy Christmas day. Take it easy, rest up and sleep, xxx

Feel better soon, Hels! Until then, take each day as it comes and get plenty of rest. There will always be time for more art when you're back on your feet.

This is just awful news Hels. I'm sending you a warm toddy, a warm, cuddly blanket, soft gentle lulaby music and the biggest wish ever that the lurgy goes NOW.
Luv Joanne xx

Hope your lurgy soon goes away! I'm hoping the lurgy stays away for Xmas/New Year as I've had it three years running at this time and I'd really like to pass on it this year!! LOL Cyber hugs....

Poor Hels - I had it 2 weeks before Xmas and was banned from going into work (not that I wanted to!!) as no-one wanted to risk getting it for Christmas. Still coughing and sniffing for the third week.
Really not nice at all so hope you start feeling better soon.
