I returned from my trip up North and bought back something that I really could have done without. The Midlands is rife with the outbreak of the lurgy and unfortunately I was unlucky enough to contract it and bring it back home with me :(
From late evening on Monday 6th July I started to go down hill fast - Hubs called the GP who diagnosed Swine Flu and for the next couple of days or so, the days kinda warped into one.
Hubs acted as my "Flu Friend" and collected the Tamiflu tablets for me and really I thought I was starting to feel a little more human by the Thursday night.
I was hoping that I would be well and fit enough to travel up to W.G.C as I was teaching a day long workshop for Crafty Stash on the following Sunday.
Unfortunately by the Friday I took a turn for the worst and ended up with a really nasty chest infection which had the GP convinced that I really needed to be hospitalised as I was suffering from Pneumonia.
Sadly my classes at W.G.C had to be postponed until a later date - I was so upset that I couldn't make it as originally planned, and I'm ever thankful to Sue and the ladies who attended the crop in July for being so understanding......I'm looking forward to seeing you all on the 16th of August - just a couple of weeks time when I will be guaranteed lurgy free and fit and raring to go :D
Three weeks on and I've turned the corner and normal service has almost resumed.
I couldn't have gotten through the past three weeks without the love and support of my man - thank you Hubs for being there - for tending to my every need and for holding my hand when I was scared half to death and convinced that my time was up! I love you more than you will ever know.x.x.x.x.x.x.
So thanks to the piggy lurgy, there has been very little scrapping going on - in fact there has been very little of anything happening here as Ive not had the energy to do much at all apart from concentrating on getting myself better.
Real life can be a PITA at times - but it happens!!
I'll leave you with a few projects that have gone live in my absence from cyber world -
Prima's new releases are simply divine - I love all the new fabric blooms and patterned papers.
The Prima Homespun Bittle flowers are by far my favourite.
Wanna win some Prima goodies for yourself to play with? Then take a look here.
Pencil Lines sketch 144 saw the talented Kimmy making a return to Pencil Lines as a Guest designer, with sponsorship from Upsy Daisy - who currently happen to be running a DT call.
Whilst sorting through a box of old papers I came across my dear Uncles driving licence from when he lived in Ghana. I didn't want to throw it back in the box for it to lie there unforgotten - so I scrapped it!
The lime green of the licence cover just happened to match perfectly with the green of the papers :)
I also whizzed together these little key chain's - using shrink plastic and Banana Frog stamps - you can read more over on the Frog Blog.
and last but no least - a couple of sneaks of pages created for Sassafras using their new funkilicious felties and papers....check here to see more lushness from Sassafras.....and maybe win some for yourself too!
The school holidays have begun and my boys plan on doing lots of this over the next few weeks -
no wonder I am going grey!!!!
Thanks for popping by.
