Long time no see!!

It’s so good to be back.
I’ve been poorly with the dreaded flu all over Christmas and new year. I now have a secondary chest infection at the bottom of my left lung. : (
I don’t mean to moan, but it’s the first time I’ve ever had flu. I always thought it was like a really super nasty cold, boy was I wrong!
Thankfully we spent Christmas in Cornwall with P’s family. No way would I have been capable of cooking Christmas dinner! I only had enough energy to eat 2 roast potatoes, before I had to go and lay down again!
I haven’t ever been knocked sideways by an illness like that before. 3 weeks so far. (poo!!)
Since I’m feeling a bit better time to move onto nicer things.
I have some pretty flowers to cheer myself up!
They certainly work. Lovely cheerfulness in the kitchen window.
My new spotty mug from J
And matching biscuit tin from P
More cheerfulness in the kitchen!
I’m afraid there has been very little crochet going on. The Granny ripple is no further forward.
I have played around with some little egg cozies.
The little face is thanks to P’s silly mate!!
 I’m not totally happy with them, but I might be overly fussy!
Fingers crossed the antibiotics will start working soon, and I’ll feel loads better and a bit more enthusiastic!
Till next time
Oh I nearly forgot.
I think there has been some problems with posting comments. I’ve fiddled around with some of the settings, and think I have sorted it out. If you find any problems I’d be very grateful if you could let me know. Email or ravelry. Lastly a big thank you to the people who alerted me to the problem in the first place!

    Hi Hayley, am glad you are feeling better. This year the flu (at least in this side of London) was really bad around Christmas… They said it was swine flu… My girls and I got it and it was nasty: they had high temperatures, vomiting and severe coughing…. It took a while to get rid of but finally recovered. I hope you can go back to normal very soon. I love your cookie tin! x Pati
