Christmas Advent - Day 13 & 14

Bah Humbug
What a miserable couple of days I have had. Apologies for not posting yesterday, I thought I was being big and clever going to the Wee Green Market, but by the time I got home I was floored with the flu.

To top it all our boy has been a poor wee soul with his chicken pox, his throws of 'Help me mummy I'm dying and turning in to a big spotty monster' were an Oscar winning performance for any four year old last night, nothing that a dose of Calpol couldn't sort out, but still very distressing for me, especially as I was feeling so sorry for myself!.

My poor husband finished work on Tuesday (he's an ambulance man) and has been on a bus mans holiday ever since nursing us both back to health - Bah Humbug indeed.

We have just finished watching 'Elf' on the telly so that has lifted my spirits and I'm starting to feel almost human again.

The film premier on Friday night was fab, fair makes you proud that a group of local(young) talented people have the drive to produce such excellent work. As usual the story was pretty morbid, but you could have heard a pin drop in the theatre all the way through the film. Thankfully the 'bloopers' at the end lightened every ones mood again.

The Wee Green Market was a success yesterday, and a nice way to finish off the fair year. Now I really need to get my thinking cap on for next year, and I am excited by the prospect of being able to indulge myself in my business. Who knows what next year will bring but I cant wait to start trying out new ideas.

Above is a picture of one of my knitted Christmas Trees. I still have some for sale, £7 each (+p&p). Email me at if you would like to buy one.

I'm off to have another Lemsip and another early night.

Sorry to hear that illness has struck, I think I agree with Caireen, your body is shouting REST! Hope the little ones chicken pox isn't too itchy.
Get well soon.

I think your body recognised that the Fairs are over, that there is a nice caring ambulance man at home looking for something to do and that there is just time to fit in an obligatory few snotty days before the Christmas parties begin...
