Since tea time friday night I have felt like I have gone ten rounds with Mike Tyson. My body aches and feels really bruised, 5 ulcers have appeared in my mouth and all day Saturday I kept swanning in and out of consciousness, dozing on the sofa. I perked up for two hours after tea and felt fantastic but now I have flushed cheeks, a raging sore throat and my ears are on fire. Fortch I have no temperature so to speak, I just feel pathetic and unfocused.
Im getting stuff ready for a table top sale in Wilmslow tomorrow (12-4 if you are free to pop in and have a gander. Stamping up demos, Clarins gifts sets, hand made bags and crafts, craft supplies for sale etc. The address is here: Morley Green Club, Mobberley Road, Morley Green, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5NT) Im so excited about it, I can de-clutter this room and give somebody else the benefit of some nice craft goodies; so no time for Swine Flu!
My belle is at my mums and I am missing her really bad. She actually went and stayed there from Monday last week. Everyone knows the last week of school is all about games and DVD's and I wasn't going bring Ellie back from Mums to go back again this weekend - so she stayed. School gave their permission (thank god) and she has been in the care of my mum all this time and its really tough on me. That sweet girl is my absolute air and I choke without her. She is back next Friday though and I have some great things planned whilst she is off 6 weeks school hollies. I collected her school report yesterday and Mark and I are absolutely blown away by all the quotes from teachers saying that she is a pleasure to teach and that she has impeccable manners and behaviour. What more could a mother want? I also took her 3 favourite teaching assistant a gift each from her yesterday but if I am totally honest, this buying a "teacher a gift" lark is costing the earth, especially with secondary school where she has 13 teachers. We never did it in my day. I mean, we are truly grateful for everything they do but the sheer pressure on Ellie to conform is unbelievable. It costs a bomb when you do and if you don't, the other kids show disdain that you didn't provide. Seriously, its almost a mob culture.
Im going to finish up gathering supplies to sell tomorrow and get a good nights sleep and hope this fatigue vanishes overnight. In the mean time, here is a little card I made for my girl tonight which I will post to my Mums and surprise her. She is having a wonderful time by the seaside. Her appetite is immense whilst she is there and she gets spoiled rotten with affection. Thats totally what Grannies are for, you know?And finally a little soupcon of a mini shoot I did of my preggo friend, Sharon. She is about to burst that tummy into life in two weeks so I offered her a gift of before and after pictures of her bump and impending girly fluff ball.I love little Harry's excitement for the arrival of his baby sis, which he sweetly named "Love Baby". Sniff sniff.
Hugs and snots x
