Now I know why I threw away all my really old and tatty bedroom carpets and painted the floorboards white.....I spent all last night awake with Vomiting Veronica. I have the feeling that illness I have had for 2 days wasn't a migraine but some sort of bug as Beauty has spent the night being sick.....everywhere!My washing machine is humming along nicely with it's 2nd load of the day as I try to wash all the bedding and clothes used during the night. Beauty ended up wearing a sparkley green t-shirt of mine whilst I finished up in a summer dress that I haven't worn in many years. I can tell that she is unwell because even though we are downstairs she has taken to the sofa and looking very sorry for herself but still giggling and chatting about the Disney Channel!I am feeling a little better today and any headache or sickness I might still be feeling is probably down to lack of sleep.I know I said I enjoyed being a night nurse BUT that was when I got to sleep in the day and I can't see much of that happening today.
However, I think that tomorrow I shall call upon the skills of my little IKEA restaurant workers(SnoWhite & Ariel) and my little Baker(Fiona) to help me prepare lunch .

Sorry you've been hit with the sickness bug - friends of mine have had it too and Karen and I currently recovering from dodgy tummy's... at least we've got it out of the way before Christmas! Wishing you all a good one!

I hope you're all feeling well enough to enjoy your day tomorrow...

Happy Christmas and love to you all xx


At present my biggest problem is to hunt down SnoWhite before the shops shut so I can go and buy vegetables.
As Beauty is in Expelliarmus mode, taking her to a shop would not be a good idea.But I am sure we shall manage as the 24 hour shop is open EVEN tomorrow!

I loved the picture show. Your children are very pretty! And so are the bunnies. Adorable.

And I recognized that red lantern from Ikea. Very nice!


Hi Marla,
sick but still must be man-flu!


Hi Aspiemom,
definitely IKEA!
My brother bought the lantern so whenever he visits our parents grave he can light a candle for them.The graveyard is situated in the grounds of St Curig's church built in the 13th century on top of a cliff overlooking the Bristol Channel.It is so cold and windy up there that a lantern is a necessity.

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.
