crook

Yep that's me ,  crook !
Absolutely nothing going on here .
I've had that 24 hour bug for,
mmm let me see ,
72 HOURS!!
Just like me to get a bit carried away .
The housework and cooking and running
around for kids hasn't stopped but
the crafting has .
Really , really bad time of the year to slack off .

I took my first day off work in 9 months and
you'd have thought I murdered someone
the way they carried on .

I have stuff to show you ,
giveaways to organise and crafting
to be done .

For now I'll just enjoy the cricket .

Oh Clare, I hope you feel better soon, there is nothing worse when you have so much on your mind for your body to decide it needs a holiday...enjoy the cricket and a cup of tea or two in bed.

OH, Clare!! How horrible! Especially when there's so much crafting and blogging to do. Hope you feel better real soon....does this mean you're not coming to my Tupperware party? *grin*

Oh Clare, I hope you feel better soon. This is your body's way of Saying "woah" so dont try to fight it.

And as for work- stuff 'em. If you're sick - you're sick.

Tania said...

Poor Poppet. I think you should put yourself in charge of the official Seagull on the Cricket Ground count and THAT'S IT. Get better quicksticks...

marina said...

Amazing how all the tiresome stuff seems to have to carry on but the comforting stuff gets put aside when we are sick!
A speedy recovery. Maybe you could do some medicinal crafting?

Hey Clare! Oh no!! The lurgy his you too! I'm almost over mine ... THANK GOODNESS!! So hope you feel better soon. I actually took two days off sick too this week ... and while my boss was very understanding, my jobs were all still waiting for me when I got back cos there's no one else to do them! PHOOEY! Still ... I guess that means they're guaranteed to miss me if I'm gone, right?! :0) Enjoy your cricket and hope you can chase your bug away soon ... maybe the ol ... "Lurgy bug, lurgy bug, fly away home ..." would work?!?!? Big 'Get Well' Bear Hugs to you! KRIS

Try not to think of anyone else except yourself and getting well. Breathe, sip some tea with honey and just rest. It is amazing what others can do when need be. :o)
Hope you feel well very soon.

Kerryanne English said...

Sometimes Clare, you have to forget about all those things on your 'To Do' list and just concentrate on YOU. You need to kick the butt of this bug so you can get on with the important stuff... like Christmas celebrations (LOL).
Hope you are resting this weekend.
Hugs ~ Kerryanne

Impact said...

How do you come across such a picture to post in this blog. I don't think there was any point in making your face like that. Happiness and sadness come parallel to one another. So tomorrow will definitely be better than today.
