It has been one hell of week. There has been bangs and bruises, visits to the doctor, ruptured cysts, coughs, colds and even an emergency department visit which lasted close to 5 hours in the middle of the night. But despite all this I have been blogging like a maniac. Dont be fooled into thinking I am actually getting a lot of stuff done, it is just that it is easier to sit at the computer with a small child attached to you than it is to say clean the house or cook dinner.
So while the kids are still sniffling along and I am contemplating getting out of my pyjamas for the first time in days, we are still housebound and stir crazy. To make things a bit brighter this wondrous little package arrived on my doorstep this morning as part of the EB girls Valentines Day swap. Packed full of valentine goodies made by Andrea, it truly did make me feel the best I have in days.
Andrea has gone to so much effort. She made me a wonderful lavender wheat pack in its own little case, a lovely pincushion and a little boxy bag which she jammed full of ribbons, ric-rac and chocolates and even a little set of magnets! Boy oh boy, what wonderful goodies! Thank you so much Andrea. Everything is made so beautifully, I love it all. I only hope you like your little parcel half as much when it finally arrives.
Oh and here is a photo of the little people town I have been watching over the last few days. Lottie insisted I take a photo of it and show you all as she and mister monster have spent hours engrossed in this game while they have been sick. I am not always an onlooker, sometimes I am the train driver or the farmer. But best of all like to be one of the sheep as for some reason they are banished to the loft in the barn so all I have to do is baaa now and then from my comfy spot on the couch.
