Under the weather........

Yes, I know we needed some rain, but a little bit of sunshine would be welcome again!

It's been a mixed weekend. Ian has been away cycling around Wales for two days. As he left on Friday I started feeling a bit off colour, by Saturday morning I was well and truly stricken. So, stuck in the house with two bored children, pouring rain outside and aching all over. There was only one thing for it - a visit to the dvd shop! Three dvds later and we were all feeling better! I watched one called "Friends with Money" starring Jennifer Aniston and really enjoyed it.

We also managed a trip to the local coffee shop where the children flung themselves and biscuit crumbs around for a while, whilst I enjoyed a lovely cup of coffee. The owner is very understanding!

On Sunday I decided to pull myself together and actually play with my children, so out came the paints, glitter etc., and this is what they produced.........



J's clown (looks a bit like Daddy actually- notice the monobrow)

K's er.. ummm "thing" - notice the choccie biscuit, great artists need sustenance you know!

We then went swimming and came home and I fell gratefully into an armchair. Today Ian took a day off work and I have stayed in bed until now, something I don't normally do. What is it about us women, we seem to carry on until we drop, when actually sometimes we should just stop and say "you know what, the world will not grind to a halt if I'm out of it for a while", so I'm back off to bed with a good book, a cup of tea and some nice white toast loaded with butter.......

Before I go I should really tag 4 others, but everone I read has already been done, so I've only got 2 - pathetic eh! Here goes...........

White toast with butter and a morning in bed sounds like the perfect medicine. Hope you're feeling better.
