I have spent most of the day asleep due to a weird '24' hour bug.
Last night , the second that Heroes finished(no jokes, it was a good episode!), I stood up and nearly fell over due to dizziness and then spent the next 3 hours camped out on the bathroom floor within close proximity to the puke receptacle.And now, apart from a very thick headache, I'm okay.
A question, how can I possibly have a headache when I take copious amounts of painkillers for arthritis,lump pains etc! Beats me.

Look what I found today,
I am going to spend tomorrow photographing and recycling what I can. Spring Clean time(a little late I know).

Beauty's school had an In The Pink day today and everyone went to school dressed in something pink. Beauty wore a very pink dress and her hair in lots of pink ribbons and Fiona made chocolate cup cakes with chocolate icing on top and then pink smarties in the icing to sell at the coffee morning that they were having. They invited parents to attend a Harvest Festival service and then the coffee morning, Beauty took in some Baked Beans, Pease Pudding, Tuna and Sweetcorn to donate. When I picked Beauty up this afternoon they had all the donations in the hall and they really seemed to have a lot of donations. The school was festooned with lots of pink balloons and streamers, a definite PINK PARTY.
The male helper in Beauty's class wore a black shirt with an In The Pink bow pinned on but one of the other male helpers in another class was braver and wore a very pink shirt.

On Monday I took into school £500 (half of the money, the rest to be collected) that Runningman collected from sponsors for running the half marathon, I also gave the school sponsor sheets to send home with the children and from that they managed to collect £180. I think it is great that we have been able to collect so much, they will be spending the money on outdoor play equipment.

Totally agree with your comment on my blog, thank you!
And hope you feel better soon.
And well done for collecting so much!


Who can be sick for long with Beauty in the house! When I pretend to still be asleep in the morning she pulls my eyelids open!

Sorry to hear you've been ill - funnily enough I came down with a nasty head cold during Heroes too but it sounds like my symptoms just don't compare with yours!

Glad you are starting to feel better. Those recycling sites are pretty cool.

An Irish Blessing

(A Blessing from St. Patrick)
May the road rise to meet you,

May the wind be always at your back,

May the sun shine warm upon your face,

May the rains fall soft upon your fields,

And, until we meet again,

May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.
