Getting a grip


This photo of a Cambridge shop front was taken as much in fun as it was to add to my collection of stained glass designs (Mr Dunnit is developing a skill and a bit of a hobby that may yet rival mine in terms of expense...)
Tourism aside, this was me. Like loads of you, I've been poorly and lost a bunch of days. Unlike most of you, I did not bear it with fortitude and gentle grace. I whined, cried, snotted and demanded. Because if I didn't, how would they know when I was better? As both of my lovelies have expressed relief at the sight of me 'looking better' today, I guess they've had enough too. Finally, they've learned that whingeing and self-obsession is more attractive than the sickly alternative. Lucky it's Halowe'en too, all this sickliness! And talking of Hallowe'en, I'm a bit behind on preparations for tomorrow - our 2 Scrap Ladies event - but it's OK, I'm going to cover up all my shortcomings by pretending to be exhausted and sweaty. People are so nice, they'll forgive me. The wild look in my eyes will convince 'em.
So last thing I remember is looking at the number of WOYWWs to visit and I still haven't, but I'll catch up; can't keep me off this interweb thingy for long. Just as soon as I've found the grip that the other Scrap Lady needs me to get.

I take random photos like that too!

Sorry to hear you've been poorly, but glad you are on the mend. I'll be thinking of you tomorrow - hope it goes well. I'm sure it will do - it'll be a huge success! I only wish I lived a teeny bit closer.

Glad you are feeling better :D My lot have had to put up with my ranting & raving tonight. Not ill, just trying to convert my blog to 3 columns. Finally managed it after about 3 hours and about 40 background changes only to decide I didn't like it and I missed my raven so am back to normal and hoping ol' beaky isn't to peeved. Because he has feelings you know ;)He does.

Looking forward to tomorrow :D Can't remember the last time I had a day without at least one child. It's going to be very weird :P

Glad you are all mended now ...you must have been really poorly to take to your bed... mind you its the only way 'cos while you are still standing, no-one believes you are ill and expect you to carry on as normal. when the kids were young I used to stretch it by one day because I knew that the minute I could venture down stairs ... everyone forgot I was still ill.

Glad you are feeling better Julia, there is nothing worse than feeling ill, I hate it, I did too much yesterday and am suffering today, so I am going to use the time to catch up with my friends. Thanks for popping by my blog, Julia I really value your comment, and once I settle into my DT posts, things won't be so manic, I thought a DT post was just making cards or projects, how wrong could I be....LOL. I hope you let us see your hubbies efforts at Stained Glass, this is one thing that I would love to try....but as you say the expense...mmm, Hope you keep well, Hugs Avril xxx

Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your
post seem to be running off the screen in Chrome. I'm not sure if
this is a formatting issue or something to do with
web browser compatibility but I figured I'd post to let you know.
The layout look great though! Hope you get the problem
solved soon. Cheers
