Oh my gosh… what is it with this flu… just when I thought I was on the road to recovery I find I’m bouncing down the hallway like a ball in a pin ball game! The way it hit so suddenly was incredible. I was having afternoon tea when this wave of exhaustion rushed over me but that was okay, I put my pj’s on and went to bed for awhile. Nothing like a “Nana Nap” at 3.30 in the afternoon! I staggered up an hour later to cook dinner and honestly, felt quite good again after dinner.
So after cleaning up the kitchen I left Master Nine in charge of the television and lights upstairs whilst I went downstairs to blog. Well… so much for THAT heh? The moment I sat down I was spinning. I knew I had to finish an email I started the previous day but wow, it was hard work that email. In the end I just turned everything off and commenced the pin ball game up the stairs and to bed.
It was just so bizarre – once I was in bed I felt I should be keeping one foot on the floor as everything was spinning and moving. Even the sound of the television was too much for me. Needless to say it was a very early night for us all last night. Miss Seven who I finally had back in her own bed was so worried about me suggested she stay with me “just for support mummy“… love it! Wish I could say I woke up fine this morning but no, I’m still very hazy.
Not too hazy though to bid a Fond Farewell to Colour #17 – Ballet Blue. This is one of those colours you really wonder why it’s retiring. I do like the new Pacific Point which is currently an In-Colour but shall become a colour family member come September 1, but Ballet Blue just has something special.
I did so want this box to be like a Chinese take-away box, well similar to one of those we see on TV at least, but putting the sides on an angle just wasn’t working for the straight cut tags inside. In the end I chose a box shape but to add a little difference to it I made the sides like the Chinese take-away box. Then for something different on the outside I did the ribbon scrunching which I think worked well. Inside are 12 tags – two each of six designs. Here they are:
I apologise for the box appearing in with the tags but if I remove the box from the overall selection box it then doesn’t appear on it’s own so after an hour of fiddling I’m admitting defeat and going off to throw myself into a bowl of coco pops, did I say that…. no I mean, a salad sandwich!
Joke for the day:
What do you call a penguin in the desert?
