DAY 12

Day 12 of being sick.
I am so sick of being sick. Just a couple of days after getting home from visiting my Dad I got sick. Temperature of 39.8 (103.6), body aches, the shakes, coughing, vomitting, blah, blah, blah. After a week I thought I'd better go to the Doctor. He says it's the flu and gave me antibiotics. Whatever flu it is, it has surely knocked me around. I am finding it really hard to concentrate on much and even find it difficult to go around blog hopping.

Got to sit on the couch holding hands with this little treasure on Wednesday.

Riley loves to have you hold his hand when he is tired and
sometimes you have to hold a foot too!

He had some fun building a house on the deck outside.

He even has a couple of toolboxes and knows the names of all the tools


I have got together a few bits and pieces to play with in the next few days. Hopefully I will be up to doing a bit of embroidery and finally do something creative.

Some vintage sequins amongst the treasures too

A few different types of threads

Gorgeous vintage glass and pearl buttons

Love these threads and buttons

A bit of linen, some vintage trims, buttons and various threads. At least it will be something I can just pick up and do 5minutes here and there on it.

Alison, hope you are soon on the mend.

Nice photo in your blog banner, it was sad news, we often swin in that area. It reminded me to thank the son in law for being so protecitve of our little brood when we are there.

Our little one is now 1 1/2 and into everything, bet she would like to help you with the lace and button collection.

Lori said...

poor you Alison, it sounds like you have been miserable with the flu...i hope you are feeling better soon...i can't wait to see what you make with all of your supplies!!!

I hope you feel better soon.
Aren't little boys cute, cuddly one minute and then mini men the next! Mine are just the same, I love the quite times - holding hands or feet!
I can't wait to see what you do with your own playthings.

Seeking respite from our cold Winter I came seeking warmth from the land down under and followed Lori...
Your blog header brings warmth to a weary soul.
I hope with each passing day you will improve and feel your chipper self soon.
I'm sure that darling little guy took your mind off things for awhile.
Enjoy your weekend.
