Ugh. Feeling slightly icky today. Am hoping it’s just a 24-hour type of thing as I have plans to enjoy my weekend and do a bit of crafting as well as enjoying the Australia Day fireworks tomorrow. I haven’t been ill in ages (and have jinxed myself by saying exactly that, out loud, today) so I really don’t want to spoil my run of good health. Just very tired and slightly feverish, headachey and blah. My Mum is staying for the weekend and she always makes me feel better, plus I’ve dosed myself up on vitamin C, garlic and horseradish, so hopefully I will perk up tomorrow. Being sick on a public holiday just will not do!
Spent some time with my brother and his brood today. Master M was turning six and so we had a little family gathering to celebrate. Much fun was had. The children are so well behaved and such a delight to be with. My heart swells-to-bursting with ridiculous love for them. They’re just such NICE little people. Master M got so “awesome” presents (lots of lego, art supplies and an amazing Minecraft-themed bean bag) and had a lovely time building his new lego creations and playing with his siblings. He had requested a “fox” birthday cake so his Mum made a delightfully orange one (which was enjoyed by all) and she also had decorated the room in various fox-themed party favours and decorations.
In the afternoon, I attempted to start making some cards (as a lady at work has requested some from me and I have absolutely nothing in my stash). I completed one, but as I was not feeling the best, gave up for the rest of the evening. I’m happy to have made one – it’s a starting point and I didn’t have too much trouble making it, despite feeling under the weather and rather uninspired in general. I went with my stand-by theme of egg-and-wings. I just love the combination.
Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend. For those of you here in Oz, happy Australia Day for tomorrow – hope you enjoy your day! I’ll be watching the fireworks from the foreshore, just at the end of my street. I am ethically opposed to fireworks – the environment suffers as do any poor animals and birds in the area – but as they will happen regardless, I might as well enjoy them too. Especially as my beloved nieces and nephews, brother, sister-in-law, and Mum will come and watch them with me this year 🙂
