YAY I am pretty much over the Chicken Pox! Ignorant ole me didn't really give it much thought and just assumed Chicken Pox was itchy spots. Well let me tell you there is a lot more to it than that! I was a write-off for about 4 days, so tired and vague, had insomnia, fever, no appetite, sore throat, not to mention the sore blisters. And the weird thing? They were barely itchy at all! They were more sore than itchy and I knew if I scratched it would hurt more than anything. I left the house on the weekend, for the first time in 10 days (other than a doctor's appointment). My spots have been clearing up from the head down - my face is pretty good now. It just looks like i have acne, and compared to how I DID look it's actually good to look like I only have acne! My tummy and back are still very spotty but luckily they're covered up, and my legs are only JUST healing now. I took two weeks off work but since I'd only been there for 4 months I didn't have enough sick so I had to take some sick leave and some Rec Leave. Now I have a cold so I'm just really looking forward to feeling well again! Shouldn't be long now. :)
The July kit at Designing Memories has just been released. It's very bright and funky and there are these gorgeous sheets of felt lace. I've cut it into 1 and 2 inch strips on my layouts. It's adhesive too - very cool! You can see the Design Team Gallery here. This first one is about when my sisters Charlotte and Felicity (and baby Cooper) came to visit a few weekends ago. I knew Charlotte was coming but it was a huge surprise that Fliss and Cooper came too! You can probably guess that this one's about Tassy's room. :) I took the photo two years ago and she looks so little. She is growing up way too fast! She's getting so tall, and soooo skinny. We're always trying to get her to eat more. She was SUCH a chubby baby and used to love food. Not sure why she's not great at mealtimes now. Although I have to give her credit for eating her breakfast well this morning. She ate her porridge faster than me!Recently Tassy went thru a phase of giving us this look and saying "ahhhh... perhaps a little help here" in this little singing voice with all the attitude you can imagine. Soooo funny. I have no idea where she picked it up from. I just wanted to remember that cos it was so funny.
