It got me....

Hi everyone, Sorry that I dropped off the planet there for a while.... as expected I came down with Danny's bug and it was a whopper...!

Not this weekend gone but the weekend before I woke in the early hours of Saturday with horrendous chest pains.... with bleary eyes I went down stairs and pondered what to do, I wandered, I sat, I lay down and I got up again... I did not know what to do with myself... 2 hours later I was hugging the toilet like my life depended on it and at 7am I wandered back upstairs kicked Mr P out of bed and crawled in leaving Mr P to look after the children all weekend as I curled up in bed and waited for the grim reaper to drag me away because I really felt that bad...

by Monday I was up but not good, in the end Danny went to mums for the day and I curled up on the settee, Mr P got home and I went to bed again.... and this is how it went on all week

This weekend just gone was a little more normal, I am still not fully back on my food and I am feeling like my head is stuffed full of toy wadding and its tricky to concentrate but every day I feel a little more normal

but if I am still feeling fuzzy by the weekend I think I will take a trip to the doctors and get a check up, just to be on the safe side

Upside of being wiped out:
Mr P and Danny have really gotten to know each other, I have been very silly and far to accommodating and I have always done bedtime, bath time, meals and everything and now Danny looks forward to and asks that daddy puts him to bed... I know its only a little thing but to not have to do the bedtime thing every night is something I am not giving up its such a relief to have someone else to help...

Downside:
I was tooo ill to even crochet!
arghhhhh!
I have however started with new vim and vigour and a polar bear is almost complete, alas I need a cunning plan to finish his ears as I have run out of silver wool... so I will sit and ponder the solution this evening... once complete I will share

I am also behind with my letter swap so I have emailed my lovely partner Molly to apologise and I also have a parcel to post to Nicola and another parcel for Sarah so I promise everyone I will be playing catch up all week and let you know as soon as I have posted your items.

Well I had better feed the kidliewinks and I will post something far more interesting next time...

take care
Alex

Oh ~ that sounds like a very horrid bug! Glad that you are on the mend now ~ it must have been very bad to stop you from crocheting. At least you can catch up with that now :O)

Oh you poor love. I'm glad that you had Mr P home so he could take over the reigns and yes it is extremely tiring being the only one that does all the 'routines' good for you for deciding to let Dad do a bit more ;)
Hope you're feeling all better soon x
