I am......



.....starting off the summer hols with a great big fat cold. It's a bit pants when, weather wise, we have gone from one extreme to the other.



It's hot, I cannot breathe, my eyes are streaming, and I have a mass amount of crochet begging me to get finished.

 Grrrrrrrr.


No matter. I will try and keep positive. Lots of iced drinks and tissues to hand........I will get through the mountain of washing. I will not shout when I step on a really sharp piece of lego for the 100th time. I will enjoy the clear blue skies........and I will get to the finish line with my crafty little projects.

Nearly there my friends......nearly there..........

  1. Are you sure that it is a cold and not some kind of pollen allergy? Whatever it is I hope it goes very quickly.

  10. Hope you feel btter soon chickpea. It is even worse being bunged up when it is boiling hot. I hope you get a moment to yourself at some point and a quiet moment in the sun.
    I also struggle not to shout when stepping on the sharp cornered toys.
    I love your bowls, such lovely colours.

  12. Oooh, it is just too bad about the cold. Hope you´ll be right as rain soon enough (without it actually raining... hihii). Isn´t it just lovely with the blue skies (we have certainly had our share of the rain this summer). Hope you get to enjoy the sun!

  15. Hope you feel more chipper soon....maybe worth taking an antihistamine, it such an unusual year that I bet even people who don't suffer with allergies may find a new spore or pollen affects them....just a thought, in the meantime, get your boys to do all the jobs for you!

  19. Oh I hope your cold improves. We've waited too long for the sun to arrive, you don't want to miss it. Double doses of vitamin c and sunshine - thats my prescription for you!!

  20. How tedious there is nothing worse than a summer cold. Lots of orange juice and sunbathing at short intervals works wonders.

    Hope you get better very soon :-)

  23. Having a cold and treading on lego that's just pants! Hope you feel better soon and that the sun stays shining so you can enjoy it!

  24. Oh no, that's pants indeed. My first week hasn't been great as I've had plans cancelled; but I think that summer colds are horrid so you've won on the 'most rubbish start to the hols'.
    Watch out for the lego!
    Better soon.x

  26. Don't forget, Doll, the craft is a hobby. It doesn't matter if you don't finish those projects for a while. Even if they are gifts. Just buy something thoughtful instead and finish the projects in time for next year. I've had to have a word with myself about this lately. I was getting stressed that I wasn't achieving much. That I hadn't done a blog post, that my ironing pile is huge.... Does any of it really truly matter? Not really.

    Anyway, Hope the cold does one pronto!

  35. So sorry to hear you are poorly Vanessa... It's so unfair after all the hard work us Mum's do during term time... then come the holidays our bodies have had enough and out come the colds ...such poop!! I really hope you're feeling tip top very soon and can enjoy some well earned hooky time and enjoy the rest of the holidays.

    Much love
    Louise xx
