my house is a launderette


The past few days have been pretty rough. Poorly kids (vomit = bedding being washed MANY times!), accidents, me making endless stupid mistakes. Sleep deprivation is a killer and I am shaking my head at things I've done wrong WAY more than I would like!

The cherry on the cake just happened as I was looking at photos I'd taken of the completed May quilt top - I've sewn part of it wrong. I am so mad at myself. I can't even show you what a doofus I am because the quilt is a secret. argh.

I don't have much to show but there is a new little project in the works:


I'm going to try and do my bee blocks this week so sorry to the ladies who are waiting - I have the pieces all cut and ready to go, just need a chance to sew them!

On the plus side we celebrated my son's 5th birthday with a party at the weekend, had lots of fun and my MIL and my sister came to visit. Sadly his actual birthday was on Monday so he had school... where he did this:


not fun.


I have also been feeling sad about crappy things happening to a few of my bloggy friends. I love emailing people but the downside of these friendships is not being able to give people actual hugs. I hope you know I'm thinking of you though.


So before I jump into a total pit of crappiness and self pity, here's what keeps me going. Precious moments and my gorgeous kids:

there's nothing as great as sisters :)

So I will keep going. Running on caffeine and cherishing the quiet moments.

Leave it to the baby to remind me to 'Rock On'!!

  5. Oh you poor thing! These bugs are horrible, and exhausting. Hope you and your lovely children are all on the mend soon. Sometimes mistakes can give you an idea you may never have thought of.
    Take care

  11. Hang in there....the rough days eventually turn back into fun, beautiful ones that you'll want to remember forever. The babies are so darling. Try to get some rest so everyone is back to par at the same time. Moms tend to run themselves ragged taking care of sick ones, then the kids get better and mom is too tired to keep up.

  18. Long distance hugs, Lu! And that last picture made me giggle - my wee one sucks her fingers exactly like that (at 2.5!) and has done since she was a few weeks old :o)
    Hope the vomit settles down quickly - it is the absolute worst. Thinking of you, lovely xxx

  24. Feel for you sister in vomit! Clarissa is getting migraines and throwing up as a result but being older not so much cleaning up to do!

    It gets better - keep soldiering on ! Dish out virtual hugs - they do help and have some too! And get sleep when you can!

  25. Your cross stitches are so perfect! I could never show stitches of mine that close up. Your emails to your friend would be pretty close to real life hugs I bet. Happy Birthday to your son, 5 years old is so grown up!

  27. Having a house full of 'bugs' is horrible. I know as I'm typing this from my bed (I know that I'm lucky that I can go to bed). Just survive each day as it comes as it will pass. Di x
