For the time being... I am staying at home today.
I have a nasty cold.

First head cold in about a year... not bad.

ABOVE:  not a bad idea... but loo paper might really hurt me nostrils after a while....

ABOVE:  well I wish there was a remedy for sneezing cos when I sneeze I almost piddle  me knickers!  Or blast me head off!  Massive things they are.

I don't know how Steve is yet, he's still in bed... I hope he doesn't get my cold as well .... add that to sore ears and he would be right miserable.

ONWARD... (Oh and Coco is 1 year old today, she has become a  really adorable addition to our family)

By 11am I was starting to feel a bit better... but just to be sure, I decided to do some 'self medicating'... and the only way I know how to do that is:

I couldn't resist these two patterns
I can't wait to make the giraffe!

ABOVE:  Steve got himself a Fedora hat too... he looks quite dashing .... We make good looking kids! ha ha ha

Kids are due home in an hour so I'm going to make the most of it and watch some mindless tv...

CHRISTY:  lol at you!  I will do my best to make you a giraffe Chick!

End of Day:  got a bloody annoying cough now.  It kicks in after dinner and goes on all night.   Grrrrr... not happy Jan.
DIET: so - so.
nite nite
