Lots of these this week as laid low by the dreaded man flu, one of the most virulent viruses known to man (but, strangely enough, not woman, haha!). Mr. P brought it home last weekend, he sneezed three times and sniffed insufferably for a day and that was that, but me and number 1 son were hit pretty bad.
Then to add to my misery, our internet buggered off on Wednesday night and we didn't get it back until Sunday morning. Now I am worried how much my computer + internet mean to me. I was totally bereft without any contact with the outside world, not catching up with blogland, no emails and no Russel Grant giving me my 'stars' for the day in his camp, good humoured way. OK, I could do without the telly and I could do without the phone, but my computer, I could not do without.
It wasn't a totally unproductive week though. I made these for my Folksy shop,
some cute new baby gift sets. Also, I sold two items on my very first day of opening, how exciting was that?
Some Mother's day cards for our mums
and I won another blog giveaway from the lovely Sarah at Paper-and-String Thank you very much, not only pretty, but practical too (drawing pins covered in lovely bright flowers). Do go and have a look at her very colourful and inspirational blog.
Which I am thrilled with and they look great on my pin board, which is something else awaiting a makeover.
Now to catch up on all your lovely blogs and see what the email postie has brought me.
Born, raised and still living in Kent, The Garden of England.
I'm a 50's something mum of two kids, 3 German Shepherd dogs and live with Mr Philistine (aka "but whats it for?"). I love, love, love to create: sewing, crochet, knitting (err, not very well though), paper mache, mosaics, paper crafting, painting, renovating old, unloved interesting objects, organic gardening, veggie growing and since 18th September, a very excited hen keeper.
Just in case you think we have palm trees in Kent, my photo was taken in Taba, Egypt - that's the Sinai Mountains in the background.
