Anyone who knows me can attest to the fact that I absolutely, unequivocally, ADORE winter but I have to say, this winter with the infections the children are bringing home from school, and we seem to average one a week, I’m almost over it… note I said almost!
My darling Master Nine after a week of coughing still sounds as if he’s a three-pack-a-day boy but at least he looks okay, something I couldn’t say of him last week. At the same time my darling husband is battling much the same combined with wattle allergies, and I have what seems like a stomach flu that is gently waving in the wind – one day it’s here, the next it’s gone, then it’s back, then it’s not… oh to wake up and not feel as if a bus has hit me. It’s always the little things in life isn’t it that you truly appreciate?!
I headed straight down to the Studio as soon as I arrived home after dropping the children at school but wouldn’t you know it, the cats were suffering cabin fever (DON’T ASK…) and boy, were they letting me know! It doesn’t help that the local scrub turkey’s have taken to scratching in our front yard so the cats are beside themselves getting to the front window in the studio to be part of it all.
Which is normally comical but this morning Miss Poppy managed to knock over my cup of coffee. Hmmmmm… so if you thought it was an earthquake you felt them morning just after 9 o’clock it was in fact me. It was only half a cup but it seemed to go EVERYWHERE. I could NOT believe it. And that my friends, pretty much set the pace of the day!
However, I did get a couple of cards made today which is something and this one highlights a Fond Farewell to Colour #15 – Creamy Caramel. This is another card that actually started it life as an A6 but it just wasn’t right so today I extended it to an A5, added a few bits and bobs, and I have to say… I couldn’t be happier!
