Master 2 has passed on his lurgy to his Ga Ga and she is MISERABLE!  Hacking cough like croup, runny dose, sore, itchy and weepy eyes - my germs are innumerable!!  It's dreadful being sick when you have to look after yourself.  And I need to stay away from Mum as she doen not need this cold.

SigOther keeps ringing up from the wilds of Vic and asking "are you dead yet ?"  well...lovely eh?  But at least he rings up and asks.  Men sometimes have funny ways of expressing care don't they LOL

So, plenty of paracetamol, lemon and honey and tissues  :(

I've been printing cards all day (thank you Isis) and at least that's kept me busy and now they are dry, I will label and pack them.......getting ready for next month

I did this one on lovely heavy recycled card stock
from Regal Crafts.  He looks beautiful on brown!


  1. they look fantastic rowens - gee you're a trooper !
    hope the cooties leave quick smart, you have too much to do ;)

  2. good to hear you're keeping busy and making use of your beautiful lino cut. Hoping you get better soon Rowena xx
