Illness and Christmas Crafts!

***** This is so cool! I've just found out that 'O, Little Town of Bethlehem' and 'The House of the Rising Sun' by The Animals, are completely interchangeable! You can sing each to the tune of the other!******** Maybe I'm just easily pleased?

We’ve been away for a few days as we’ve all had flu’ - no fun at ALL!

Being ill as a parent with small children always reminds me of Garrison Keillor’s description of the Swedish Flu’.
‘Swedish flu is like Asian flu but in addition to the usual nausea, fever and chills; you feel it's your fault.
Besides the personal guilt this flu is also accompanied by an overpowering urge to put things in order. Before you collapse in bed, you iron the sheets. Before you throw up, you plan your family's meals for the upcoming week."


Although, in my feverish state I put a navy, cotton-jersey pillowcase in Ken’s t-shirt drawer by mistake.
Let me tell you, there is nothing funnier than a large man in post-flu’ recovery stumbling around the bedroom trying to put a pillowcase on!

Luckily, before we all succumbed, we managed to do some Christmas crafts.
Here are the pictures:
