the road to recovery

So, if I was bucket list-minded, I could now add and tick off "catch pneumonia" to the list.  Not much fun, especially when Laughing Boy caught it too (well, I caught it from him) and, to be fair, his was much worse #obvs.  We don't do things by halves, chez kettleboiler! Still, the drugs have worked and we are both on the road to recovery.  Neither of us are back to work yet, but it's heading that way. Poor wee man, it's definitely not much fun having two sick parents and he keeps telling me that he is just too poorly to do as he is told. Thankfully, he is fit and well.

A long winded way of apologising for not announcing my giveaway winner sooner.  Drum roll please.....

Congratulations Sue (mumasu), I'll be in touch via email to work out the details with you.  And I love your suggestion too! Thank you to everyone who provided a mocktail or booze free suggestion.  Lots of you opting for a nice cuppa tea #classy.  I have to admit I did have one hot toddy (whisky based) when I was super poorly but that was purely medicinal.

I am hoping to dust down old Bertha this afternoon and do some sewing.  I have been occupying my convalescing time (when not kipping!) with my first ever cross stitch....

See, further proof that I don't do things by halves!  It's for my sister's 40th which was last year (long story!) so she may get it in time for her 50th!  hopefully early next year.

Right, off to the sofa for a nanna nap (oh for those days when it was a disco nap!)....
