Recovering ... Slowly!!

I know ... another week has gone by without so much as a peep or a growl from the Meares' Madhouse. Sorry to neglect all of my blogging buddies, but the nasty head cold really did a number on me. I couldn't take any time off work last week cos my boss was on holidays and someone had to hold the fort (the way I was feeling last week, the Indians would have overrun the fort for sure if they'd attacked!!) so when my work week ended, I hauled in the drawbridge (well ... closed the slightly draughty door!), set forth the moat monsters (one of whom would lick you to death before you made it to the door!) and hibernated.

There were some kindy-kips, some DVD viewing (helped solved quite a few Midsomer Murders!) and once my head settled back onto my shoulders, there was a little bit of stitching ... though nothing to show at the moment. I DID lower the drawbridge long enough for my dancing buddy Lynda to pop in and check that I was still in the land of the living and have a cuppa with me. Isn't it nice to have friends who'll check up on you when you're sick? :0) But apart from that I spent three days in front of the heater, snuggled under my flannel blankie ... and it did me the world of good! I'm over the worst of my bug and just have a bit of a snuffle and tickly cough left ... I think that means I'll survive! :0)

And ... to help my body get over the few leftover symptoms ... we're off to join my folks for a few days at the beach ... AAAAAAAHHHHH!!! Coastal sun, fresh sea air ... even if it rains and is as windy as it is here today, we figure it will STILL be WAY warmer than on top of our hill!! :0) All that's left to do is pack a port and leave a list of instructions for the dog/house sitter ... and decide which stitching projects to take with me, of course! Tee! Hee! Hee! I promise I'll be back next week with a more interesting update ... I should have a couple of things I can show you by then, though I seem to be doing a lot of Secret Squirrel stitching at the moment. Hope you're all keeping well and warm ... or cool if you're one of my blogging buddies in the northern hemisphere. Hope you all manage to steal some time-out for YOU this weekend and you can think of me at the beach ...


Tee! Hee! Hee! Til next time ...


BEAR HUGS!

CHEERS!

A few days by the beach should be the perfect pick-me-up for what ails you Kris.
Glad to hear you are on the mend.
