Famous last words!

At the end of my last post I mentioned that Malc and the boys were camping, it was going to rain and I didn't envy them. I think I was quite smug actually.
Well they had a great weekend, it hardly rained and they came back absolutely filthy and exhausted which is always a good sign.
I, unfortunately spent all weekend on the sofa, alternatively coughing and sneezing with some sort of virus!
I don't know where it came from, nobody else in the house has had it, I don't know anyone else who has been  ill but obviously I'm very special because that virus picked me!
Today is the first day I've been out in nearly a week.
The reason I'm telling you this, why for sympathy of course, Eden's at school and I'm left in a house of men!  They have taken advantage of the fact that I can't shout  admonish them, beds have not been made, rubbish has been eaten for lunches and bins have not been emptied!
So starting tomorrow, to their utter joy, the house will be given a good go through.
Many hands make light work as they say.
I have finished all the baby clothes for my friend so I'm hoping to send them to her over the weekend.
I have only been knitting again over the last couple of days, you can tell my degree of illness from sniffles to near death on my knitting. My head felt so bad that I couldn't even pick the needles up. Come on, you must be feeling some sympathy by now?
Anyway we've got a new charity to knit for here
So Callum and I have been knitting more baby cardigans and hats.
I'd better go now, don't want to tire myself out with all this blogging!

  7. Glad to hear you are on the mend/ Son and daughter in law have gone off camping today for a couple of days so we are dog sitting. I haven't had much time to spend on blogging recently, caravanning and life just gets in the way sometimes :-)
