A Horrible, Horrible Week

Oh my goodness, what a week the Hall's have had! I have been the sickest I have even been in my life, with a record 6 days straight in bed unable to function racking my guts out. Husband was also sick AND the Mother in Law which meant Miss 10 and Miss 3 almost had to fend for themselves had it not been for my 78 year old Grandparents coming to help out and a very good friend, Miss Kelli Brown, dropping in baskets full of homemade cooking.   Thanks soooo much Kelli!
Miss 3 then came down with an ear infection, went on anticiotics and promptly had an all over head to toe rash reaction from the antibiotics....we found out she is allergic to penicillin!! The Mother in Law had to be taken to hospital for suspected deep vein thrombosis and she is still too sick to move from there. In the last few days we have been in the Hospital ER 3 times and the staff know us all by name......
I really do urge everyone to have a flushot as this year's flu strain is an absolute KILLER and you definitely do not want this if you can help it. I have never been bedridden sick before and I honestly couldn't move for 6 days.

I do feel well enough today to get up, boot up the computer, read hundreds of emails, catch up with FB and read my blogs! What's the news?? What did I miss???!

It's Spring! And the weather is just starting to turn nice. Time for pretty frocks again! Yay!

This 50's pure silk circle dress is especially pretty, just puffed out slightly with a not so fluffy crinoline.

Lots of bakelite to complete, of course.

So, I'm now back on track and will resume regular posting from now on! Hope you all had a great weekend.

  12. I'm so sorry you've all been sick, I got some strain of the flu too (I'm over it now, but it took a while!) so I'm sending sympathy and happy thoughts your way for recovery.
