Wow, well first of all THANKS for the FORTY comments I got on my layout post on Sunday! Geez...how lovely for me that they have kept rolling in all week, it's been very cheering for me as I've had a BAD time :(
One of my sons is seriously sick. He got sick on Monday & has missed 4 of his exams so far!! Finally we got a diagnosis today & he has been written off sick for the rest of the week & is going to miss out on writing all the rest of his exams! He is a hard worker so while this may sound like fun he has had a hard time accepting it!!
And that's not all! I am now sick too...I just hope that I am not following suit...I am trying to keep at everything but it is proving impossible & I think I'm going to have to bow out of some of my plans for the rest of this week. I haven't been well all week but now I'm getting worse! Add to that the fact that I am having computer problems & my IT guy can only come on Friday, means this week has been a bit of a write-off...
And that's not all!! The cat is sick too - yes she is! In fact she had to have an operation at the vet today & while it will make her better for now she is sicker as a result of the anaesthetic & has to be locked in the bathroom crying the house down...the poor baby...I hope by tomorrow she will be much improved :)
There is some good news too though! My daughter arrived home safe & sound from uni today & is currently in the lounge watching reality TV & eating crisps - so all is well in my world :)
We have had our first silly argument already (aaaah I've missed those!) over washing her converse sneakers. They are FILTHY but she was horrified at the thought of washing them & snatched them back - telling me "that's the whole idea!! Do you know what I have gone through to get them to look like that?!" Aaaah....kids! The generation gap will never close will it?
And my youngest has made it through the local singing finals & is in the top 10 for a show/contest that is taking place in 2 weeks from now, so we have 4 hour rehearsals EVERY DAY & no car pool so I am traipsing back & forth like a true taxi-driver - yikes...the joys of motherhood! She is so cute up on stage belting out "The Climb" by Miley Cyrus, how can I say no?!
Anyway, I just wanted you to know that I am still alive, although not well!
I have done a bit of blog hopping but not much as I don't have a laptop & my studio is freezing - it being mid-winter here (not very cold by international standards but for an African I'm suffering @ 10 degrees at night!!)
If I owe you a visit bear with me - I'm doing the rounds slowly but surely :)
