Oh yes, all Easter weekend and even today I am not feeling all that bright. We went to Yorkshire the weekend before Easter (more about that in another post) and although we had a lovely time seeing family the boys and I were rather suffering from coughs still hanging on from the last colds we have had (which has relayed on since September, part of the joy of both boys starting at school/pre-school I guess is bringing every bug they can find back home with them!). Along with my cough I also had a persistent sore throat, which went on to become a throat infection over Easter Weekend and then turned into flu. I was a bit fed-up as I’m used to ‘getting on with it’ even when I do feel under the weather but I was pretty useless and just moped around in my dressing gown.
Still, enough, don’t want to bore you with all the details, I’m a lot better today and feel the need to start cleaning the house to get rid of all the germs and bring in some fresh air, I started with the bedroom and even managed to put some Spring flowers by the bed after removing all the tissues and medicine bottles.
I had hoped to treat myself to something yummy from the box of goodies we received for Easter from M’s relatives in Germany, sadly the boys and M have eaten the lot, well except for a couple of tiny animal biscuits left in the bottom amongst the wrappings – thanks boys 😉
I did have some new goodies to show you, Caroline McGrath were having a 50% off all Anorak products so I took the opportunity to grab a Picnic Rug from their ‘Kissing Animals Collection’ in eggshell blue with red rabbits.
I also bought a children’s cotton sleeping bag with a ‘Kissing Deer’ print but F is snuggled up in it on the sofa right now as he’s getting sick so no photo I’m afraid.
Whilst placing the order, I took the opportunity to buy a couple of new boxed ‘cups’ from the Isak range, we already have some in other designs, they are quite small but make perfect pots to hold snacks or for presenting dips and sauces (I put C’s ketchup in one when it’s homemade and sometimes a bit runny) and the bonus is I get a nice box for thread storage – perfect!
Right, that’s the lot, sorry for a slightly disjointed post but I wanted to say a quick ‘hello’ and explain my absence, hopefully everything will be back to normal this week and I will get into the studio at some point.
I hope you all enjoyed Easter and the Bunny stopped by your door 🙂
