From my bed

I’m so sorry that I haven’t been around lately. After doing the 3 day fair down at  the Cowslip Workshops I came home to a poorly boy, followed a few days later by a poorly girl and now I am a poorly me!    It has been, and continues to be, a very testing time.  I am not good at being poorly as I can’t stand taking it easy, resting and going to bed.  My family know when things are bad if I can’t get out of bed! 

So here I lay, bored silly, feeling too ill to do anything fun like crochet, listen to music or watch television.  Today was the first day when I could actually pick up a book and read for a bit until I got too tired.  So, the only thing I could do was to take a series of photos called ‘From my sick bed’. This is the view I have as I lie here and I will leave you with them and hope to be back on form soon, ready to  start enjoying the festive period (which is making me panic).

Take it easy!

Big hugs!

If I had a room that lovely, I'd probably fake being ill on a regular basis.

Hope you're being looked after!

Hey hun,
you must be going bonkers! How bloomin' awful, so osrry.
I hope you feel better soon but take care not to do too much too soon, you don't want to be ill through Xmas.
Your room is very beautiful.
We have a 'It's a Wonderful Life' film poster on our hall wall!

Poor poorly girl...... :o{
...get well soon darling but don;t rush to get back to 'normal' too quickly.
Your normal is most people's incredibly busy.

I know you feel so poorly that pretty surroundings probably mean nothing to you, but you have such a lovely cozy bedroom and so peaceful looking, you couldn't ask for a nicer sickroom.

I'd spend a lot of time in there if it were mine, even if I felt fine.

I do hope you start to get better very soon.

Hope you feel better soon Donna, I was laid up this time last week (v unlike me!) The great thing is when you're better, you really appreciate your health!
Best to get it out of the way before Christmas comes too!
Love Kirsty x
PS I am using that bakers twine for absolutely EVERYTHING at the moment - such a good buy!

Hi Donna

Sorry you're feeling so groggy. Hope you'll see an improvement tomorrow. Make the most of the rest though - it'll be over before you know it.
