Last Tuesday we travelled to Yorkshire to spend NYE with our eldest son and family. We were taking care of the boys on NY eve as both my son and D.I.L. had to work. All went well to begin with. Lovely meal on Tuesday evening but I had already begun to feel unwell. Went to bed feeling very poorly. Dreadful night. Then of course we were looking after boys Wednesday ( I'd not told DS and D.I.L. ) so they'd gone to work. DH did a lot - I kept taking paracetamol and managed to drag myslf to cinema as DS had pre booked and boys were excited. DS and D.I.L. came home to find me on sofa under a blanket. Poor D.I.L. didn't get home until 7.30 and prepared gorgeous food. I managed a tiny bit. We did manage to enjoy the evening - the boys especially as they were allowed up until midnight and then brought a piece of coal in each. D.I.L. was due back at work NYD. Son was ill during night and so DH had to look after the boys again.
I am feeling better than I did - it seemed like flu with a tummy bug.
Sadly during all of this I have managed to lose a necklace. It was expensive but it has great sentimental value DH bought it when our youngest son got married and I wore it on the day ( he did the same when our eldest married as well. ) So I am so upset about it's loss and am praying it will turn up.
I tried to visit everyone last week - there were some blogs I was unable to leave a comment on - I am sorry.
The colouring in tablecloth was via Amazon. We all enjoyed colouring it in. :-)
Well needless to say I've done no crafting! I've either been in bed asleep, on sofa asleep or in bathroom ( don't ask :-) )
So I took these two photos
Dining table some of sweets/and craft makes left
My actual desk. Received Christmas cards - waiting to be sorted - I dumped everything down yesterday. I tried to get decorations down and ended up asleep on sofa!!
I had intended to dust !! Knew it was bad for you! The ball decoration was hanging in hall. DH was telling a tale raised his arms and knocked it on floor - it now needs my glue gun to repair it.
I really need to get started crafting. Have a class planned for 31st January BUT got my mum stopping before then. That involves collecting her and taking her home - never do things by halves do I?
That's all for now. Will visit as many desks as I can. Back soon.x
