WOYWW....

As you can see I'm not very organised this week.  I am still coughing and spluttering and have to say it has certainly been one hell of a bug we have had here.  

I have been too poorly to visit my dear friend in her care home and still have her Christmas cards and gifts waiting for her on the table.  [Please forgive me B but I'm doing all I can to get better] I'm pretty certain she would rather wait than have the germs that would have come with them for Christmas.  I have called the home several times over the last week and she had been enjoying all the festive entertainment the home had organised.  She will certainly have had more enjoyment this year than any other year I have known her.  She always insisted on spending the time alone and, in the 21 years we have lived next door, has only once taken me up on my offer of joining us for Christmas dinner.  She was always a very independent lady.  I'm pleased to say she seems to have settled in fairly well and is warm, clean, fed and well cared for where she is

Santa really spoiled me this year and although I have felt too poorly to play with any of it as yet I have been bought lots of wonderful crafty bits to create with in the new year.and that's all I am showing you today.



As you can see I've had wools and a knitting book, fabrics, cards, a blank canvas paints buttons, glitters and embellishments.  So it looks like there will be all sorts of crafting going on soon  :-)  All I need now is good health and the energy and inspiration to feel like playing.  I'm keeping all crossed that I shift this bug very soon.

Now my crafty buddies I would like to say thanks for all your get well wishes.  I'm doing all I can to get better quickly......I guess it just takes time  :-(   Please pop over to Julia's blog and show us what Santa brought you and what you have been up to over the last week.

I would also like to wish each and every one of you an exciting and healthy New Year and hope we all have lots more wonderful WOYWW to enjoy together.....Thanks Julia for all you do xxxx

I'm really sorry you are not well. I hope by now, Wipso is taking care of you. I hope you had a great Christmas, too. I had no idea I would not have internet access for the time I was away. I didn't even get to wish you a Merry Christmas. Maybe that's a good thing, though, as I woke a few hours ago not feeling real well.

I hope you have a lovely, healthy, art filled New Year and all your dreams come true in 2011.

oneoff said...

Poor Wipso, that sounds a truly nasty bug. Glad Twiglet is dispensing TLC, and I'm sending the virtual version from here.

I am sure that your friend understands completely that you have not been well enough to deliver her prezzies, and how lovely of you to call so regularly to check she is well and happy.

Sending you all the best for a speedy recovery, and then some leisure time to enjoy your crafty goodies. Wishing you a happy and healthy 2011,

Good luck on feeling better. And I know your friend will appreciate you not taking your illness to her as much as she'll appreciate your visit when it happens.

Have a wonderful New Year,
