A Bit Under The Weather!



This is how I'm feeling at the moment! After a very busy month or two, I obviously got tired and run down enough that an icky head cold was able to ambush me! How RUDE!! The last few days have seen me single-handedly keeping Sorbent tissues in business, I think, while my poor nose alternates between being blocked up and dripping like a tap. I threatened to stick a tissue up my nose and leave it there to save blowing - but my Beloved Geek Boy said it wasn't a good look and that I should reconsider!

And although my nose is red enough to rival Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, there have been a couple of nice side-effects to having a cold. The first has been my Beloved GB cooking dinner the last few nights and making me soothing cups of lemon scented tea while I stay cosied up under my flannel blankie! Aaaawwwww!!! Isn't he a SWEETIE?!!! I think I'll keep him! And the other positive side-effect of feeling so icky has been the last few afternoons after work being spend snuggled on the lounge under my blankie with "Midsomer Murders" DVD's, stitching away on my new quilt-design-in-progress. I'm not quite ready to show sneaky peeks, but I have made some good headway, so hope to share a peek in the next few days.

Now in amongst my foggy head and dripping nose ... there has been another lovely thing happen.



Anne-Lise passed on a Friendship Award to me. Thank you Anne-Lise - what a lovely gesture!! And what a CUTE award! Aren't these little bears so SWEET!!! Of course, since they're bears, I MAY be just a TEENY bit biased! Tee! Hee! Hee! Now, I'm supposed to pass this on to eight blogging buddies, but as I keep saying ... I just can't choose! So to all of you who pop in regularly, especially those I also exchange chatty emails with - thank you for being my blogging buddies and please feel free to add these super cute little bears to your blog! And pop on over and say G'day to Anne-Lise, too - bet you enjoy your visit!!

And now ... I think I'm going to go take some cold tablets, have a hot shower and put myself to bed to see if I can sleep off some of this icky head cold! Hope you're keeping well whatever you're up to - don't forget to update your sidebar list of finished projects and email your end-of-month report, all you OPAM Challenge gals ... the end if nigh ... of the MONTH that is! Tee! Hee! Hee! Til next time ... Bear Hugs!

CHEERS!

Enjoy being taken care of, but I do hope you are feeling better soon.

Get well soon, Kris. Head colds are sooo exhausting! Enjoy the pampering and the Midsomer Murders (love 'em!).

Get well soon, Kris. Icky is the right word for a head cold! Enjoy Midsomer Murders (I love them too - I have one on my TV as I write *vbg*)! I've done the tissue-up-the-nostril trick *lol* did you ever read about the man who put a tampon up each nostril? it actually killed him!! but imagine what the coroner thought when he saw him!!! :oD
