What a difference a day makes

What a difference a day makes....24 little hours....in the words of the song and I slept for most of them yesterday.... I now feel almost back to normal but shock horror when I looked in the mirror this morning..my hair looks like a bird's nest....well actually that is mega insulting to any bird's nest making skills...it looks like it's been through a wind tunnel and then pulled through a hedge backwards and my nose could give Rudolph a run for his money but what about the cold...well after spending a mint on so called remedies....decongestant this and cough that ...none of which were shifting this stinker....I used my little bit of medical knowledge and smattering of anatomy and worked out that the problem was in my sinuses..so boiled up the kettle, out came the bowl and I submerged myself in a world of steamy heaven...OK it took a good few goes before I could feel it working but woke up this morning feeling almost human again  so I will keep it up today and here's hoping by tomorrow I will be firing on full power again.
And DA..RA.. the news you have all been waiting for-  in true Victor Meldrew style.I DO NOT BEELIEVE   IT.....the CHRISTMAS CARD ORDERS ARE FINALLY FINISHED  and will be winging their way out of my life on Thursday......yippety doo dah....yippety ay....my oh my what a wonderful day... and the way I feel right now....I will be (cover your ears now if you are of a nervous disposition)  buying my personal cards this year.....don't think I can face making another Christmas card.
Just ..... a few commission cards to make for December and I am HOME AND DRY.....FOOTLOOSE AND FANCY FREE....TOTALLY ECSTATIC.....TAKING THE PHONE OFF THE HOOK AND CHANGING MY E-MAIL ADDRESS.
I have my DT stuff to do for this week and then maybe.....just maybe....I will get a challenge or two done...so there may now be some pics to show you instead of listening to the saga of Moaning Minnie and the Stinky Cold.    Off to have a nice long hot shower....wallow in the steaminess....sort out the hair and catch up with yesterday's work......catch you all later.....   Hugs Kath xxxxxx

Ohhh glad you are on the mend Kath {{{hugs}}} It is truly rotten when your head feels like it's stuffed with burning cotton wool. I LOVED your Paul O'Grady anecdote - he makes me laugh so much and he comes from the Wirral which is where I work. I haven't read his book but I will have to get it. Cant wait to hear what your 'high' bit is ....... intrigue intrigue ..... xxxx

Hi Kath...
You couldn't possibly buy Christmas cards!!! Mind you, I'm sooo sick of the sight of them at the moment, I want to run away screaming! I did suggest to my husband that I was just going to go and buy some he said " but you save a lot of money by making your own" I nearly choked on my tea...hmn, that must be beacause embellishments are all 5p, and rubber stamps are £2 each!!! (at least that's what I tell him)
So glad your feeling better
Luv'n'Hugs

I'm so glad your feeling much better today, now do you fancy dropping by and helping me finish my orders no... ok I'll start running now will i lol. I had to buy mine last year and I'm not out of the woods yet either this year. Got a demo on monday at the guild so working on samples for that. Enjoy your day and stay warm.

Hi Kath, so glad to hear that you are feeling much better, nothing worse than blocked sinuses, buy some eucalyptus oil and add a couple of drops to the hot water and breath deeply.

I bet you are looking forward to playing with some of your new stash now.

Love and hugs Carol xx

Well it's good to hear you're a bit better and simple boiling water does the trick after all!!!
I bought some extra strength Vit C today just in case any germs try to latch on!!! Have escaped so far - she says touching wood as she types!!!

Hugs
