This and That

The last two weeks I have been really ill with Swine Flu but am practically over it now. Just have a lingering cough. It really drained me and I'm still feeling the effects from it.

Saturday was the first day I had been out in a long time so Colin and I went into town and we had dinner at my daughters restaurant The Rainbow. I had scampi and chips with salad, yum! Afterward we did some shopping and brought lots of bits and pieces so I could get back into cake making.

Sunday was spent looking after Ulla while her mummy worked. She has really good hand co ordination for a six month old. She has no intention of moving much though, not even trying to roll over. Could be where she has a bit botty and tummy lol.

Today I spent the afternoon baking butterfly cakes and stitching. So a nice way to round the afternoon was with a pot of tea and a freshly baked cake :-)

Time for Tea

Feeling Yuck

The last few days I have been quite poorly, with a fever, blocked nose, shivers and a temperature.
Thankfully my temperature broke during the night so I don't feel as bad as I did but still feel bad enough. No stitching has been done due to the fact I didn't want a drippy nose over it lol.

Colin decided he was going to put a shelf up by his computer and that made my nose worse because of the brick dust! He is such a plonker at times but I can't help loving him lol,

Yesterday Colin had to reformat my laptop, joy joy not! A windows update came in and it screwed the bloody thing up. So after the format, Colin didn't bother putting on the Windows 7 upgrade and am staying with Vista instead. Bleeding Microsoft grrrrrrr!

On the Razzle

Last night Colin and I went out with our friends Jayne and Olly. It was Ollys Birthday so we went for a meal at Cosmo's which is an eat as much as you like Asian eatery. We always get our monies worth as Colin eats enough for four of us lol .
Afterward we went to The Marina Fountain pub to watch a live band called Sonic Oblivion who were very good. They play stuff like Pink Floyd, Radio head, Metallica, Black Sabbath etc.
I only drank two and a half pints of lager so I was a good girl ;-p  Since I've had my gallbladder out my stomach and guts wont tolerate lots of alcohol. 
I had a really bad night's sleep, probably due to the beer maybe, anxiety attacks ugh. Although we both enjoyed the night out, neither of us are big drinkers although we are both partial to a nice bottle of red wine now and again.

Busy Busy Busy!

Been a while since I blogged. I am going to try and blog more regularly .
Last weekend we attended Colin's Nan's funeral. It was a lovely ceremony conducted by a female vicar and she was very nice.

As you can see, she had some lovely flowers. Colin and I chipped in with Colin's mum and dad for the big one in the middle which was on the coffin.

My son and his fiance are getting married on Valentines Day so during the week I picked up my outfit....I'm Maid of Honour lol. I was very lucky and got a dress worth £150 reduced to £45 in the sale in Debenhams. Can't grumble at that can I? 

Ben and Sarah are also moving house in the next couple of weeks too. Rather them than me, that's two highly stressful things going on for them at once!

I'm still trying to come to terms with Rene's passing. It still hasn't really sunk in properly yet. I can't go anywhere without seeing some kind of frog and thinking of her, but that's a good thing.
