WOYWW....


Please help yourself to a face mask before you go any further.

I know there will be some who call by here to check up on me every week but today you venture on at your own risk.  Over the weekend we were called out to help care for the twins....their daddy and both the twins were being sick at the same time and bless her poor Shell just didn't have enough hands to cope....This b****** Norovirus is an awful thing. 





One of the poorly babes  :-(
Lots of cuddles needed.



 









 Late on Monday afternoon my darling other hubby and I also went down with the bug.  :-(

I have no crafting on my desk to show you today as frankly there has been none done so I'm just sharing my gorgeous birthday crafty goodies.....but of course they are all still at the stroking stage as yet!


Aren't they just wonderful?  I have been really spoilt....now all I need to do is to get better so I feel like using some of it.  Thanks for calling by today....I'm not promising to do much blog visiting til I feel better but before you leave will you please wash your hands cos I don't want anyone else feeling like this.

Hands duly washed and bugs well and truly zapped. Nothing worse that a tummy bug, sounds so minor but can lay you out for days. Glad the little fellow is feeling a bit better and hope you all get rid of it soon.

Oh hugs to everyone ...you poor things ...how debilitating it must be ...not sure whether its reached Scotland ...if it hasn't ...can you hang on to it....please. There is a Chickenpox epidemic here ....as there was last year but fingers crossed it had missed Robbie and Kris ...however Jake has it and Emma is waiting for the other two ....plus Hubby ... to come down with it ...she wants it over in one go so she is getting Jake to lick Ben and Ollies lollies ...she could be sorry ...I've suggested she makes several sets of scratch mittens .

Katie said...

Feel better soon! I'm pretty sure we had a norovirus that swept through our family. It was awful! My grandpa (who is 94 and in hospice care) lives with my grandparents...and people were constantly coming to visit. I think whatever it was (norovirus or not) struck about 20 members of my family. Hope your family recovers quickly!

MaggieC said...

Poor Annie, I hope you soon feel much better. I have got my mask on and I have washed my hands on the way in. Make sure your nursemaids bring you plenty of hot, home-made chicken soup. That will settle those nasty bugs in double quick time. I can't wait to see the beautiful things you create from all your birthday gifts. Take care of your self. xx Maggie #42

RosC said...

Hi Annie,

Jeez you're a stalwart, putting up a post regardless of the virus! Hate to think of you feeling so ill - clearly, grand-children are dangerous at certain times. LOL.

Lovely fabrics, and I hope you can do more than stroke them sooner than soon.

Yours in mask, cap and gown,
Ros. #102

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Oh no! Everyone has the creeping crud! Never fear I held my breath and didn't touch anything and I will now bathe in anti-germ stuff. Whew! Dodged a bullet there. It is the time of the year for the germs to come out in force. We've got lots of sickies at work and a case of pink eye we're passing around to boot!

Love the birthday goodies! Stroke them some for me! Get better soon!!!

okienurse said...

Poor Annie I hope you get to feeling better soon so you can play with your new birthday toys!!! Sad being sick and those poor babies. Tonight as all the Halloween Trick or Treaters passed by I heard a lot of sniffling and snorting so I hope I don't come down with something. This virus is really bad on young and old alike! Thanks for sharing and dropping by my blog! Have a great week! Vickie #37

SueH said...

Aww Annie, I’m so sorry to hear that you’re feeling under the weather. It’s that time of year isn’t it and as soon as one person in the household gets something they feel the need to share and give it to everyone else.
Stay snuggled up in the warm and hopefully you’ll be back to full strength very soon.

(((((((hug)))))))

Kezzy said...

Oh Annie I'm late visiting this week, teenage problems again, but anyway that's not important, how are you feeling now? I remember my son who was 3 getting the rotavirus, he ended up in hospital as he was being so sick and out the other end. Luckily with a rotavirus most people have got an immune by the adult age so we didn't get it, neither did my daughter. It must have been awful for you, I have a real fear of sicky bugs, so I have worn one of your masks and used the handwash that you have provided!!! lol. Love the little uns Halloween preparations how cute. Hope your weekend has been better than the week. Lots of Hugs. Happy Woyww. Kerry xxx
