Not So Happy Weekend

Hope you've all had a nice, warm and cosy weekend.
Ours has not gone so well-my girls and I have been poorly
these last few days. Lots of coughing, sneezing, high temperatures,
tiredness and broken sleep. We certainly haven't been happy bunnies.
But at least my eldest daughter is much much better and
 I'm also feeling a tad better today.
The littlest one though is still not back to her usual happy 
and smiley self. Hopefully very soon she'll be on the mend.
 It hasn't been fun at all seeing both my babies sad and unwell.
With all these unhappy goings on I haven't done much crafting.
I've started a crochet project but have only managed
 the first three rounds in the pattern.
Hopefully I'll be able to do a bit more this evening.
Or I might wrap some presents and make Christmas gift tags or do both
now that the girls are in bed.
I've had a look at these magazines and have found a couple of things
in H&A's December issue that I really really want to have a go at making
(and a few other things that I'd love to buy if I had the money.)
For now though they've been added to my ever growing list of
things to make and do.
What I'm very sure of is taking it easy tonight, have a cup of tea and
enjoy a slice of pear and almond tart that my husband made this afternoon.
Then an early(ish) bedtime and hopefully tomorrow will be a
start to a better, healthier week.

Thanks for reading. See you soon!



  1. Hi Marion,

    I hope you and your girls will feel much better soon. I myself am feeling a bit under the weather - maybe it's that time of the year.

    I love the little mushrooms - they're so cute!

    Take care and have a great day,

    1. Hi Virna! Sorry to hear you haven't been well too. Hope you're feeling much better. My youngest has been unwell for nearly a week but thankfully she's better today. Hopefully she's now turned a corner and will continue to improve.

      The smaller mushroom is a candle. Too cute to use!

      Have a lovely week!

  2. I hope you all will be good at this time. Because of climate change many people are affected by this common symptom.
