On the mend but still not right

Last week the whole family came down one by one with a flue type bug, it included 2 to 3 days of high fever and then progressed into head or chest colds.  DH and myself have taken longer to recover from this wonderful bug than the kids and in fact there were a couple of days that they sort of had to fend for themselves.   I can't say that I am 100% over it judging by a trip to the city yesterday for a dentist appointment for squid that left me exhausted and needing to go to bed at 8.30.  I also managed to sleep in and be late for work today.  Just really over feeling BLAH.  I headed to the chemist to get some probiotics to try and help my gut which I think is causing the majority of the BLAH feelings.

There has been some sewing done and the appliqué section of block 2 is now complete, I just need to decide how many filler blocks to include which will depend on how much sewing I do this weekend.  Next weekend is the Jen Kingwell Workshop so no sewing will be done on my BOM and most of next week will be taken up with School Holiday activities that the kids have missed out on this week due to us all feeling poorly.  

If you have any progress photo's of the Block 1 send them to me or share a link I'd love to see them.  And if anyone has any questions please let me know.  So far the youtube video has been a bit of a miss but we will get there eventually.  I did tried some video's last weekend but I couldn't talk and all the sound was of me heavy breathing which just sounded too creepy.

Hope you are feeling much better now. The blahs are just yucky. Love the BOM block. Hopefully you got in some significant stitching time this weekend.

Wow – you got really sick Amanda. I went back to work from my own little bout of illness last Monday but must admit I’ve been pretty tired all week. Hope the lurgy is banished completely soon, and you’re back up to running at full speed.
