The week that went missing

Well, we all got sick. Come Monday morning, it became clear that I also had Hugo’s virus. Elena came home early from child care with a fever – and Alex wasn’t feeling so great either. We ended up incapacitated for most of the week. It’s been a total blur. Yuck.

I’m so glad it’s mostly over and done with. I suspect the kids will be well enough for school tomorrow, so we’ll be back to work – although I still feel rotten and would gladly sleep. I hate being sick. This virus has been a nasty experience!

While we were horizontal and wishing ourselves better, spring seems to have crept up on us.

Today was beautiful and warm (a balmy 18°C!) and the blossoms are out.

I managed some knitting over the week – not one piece blocked though, and plenty of ends to weave in. Lots of time camped on the couch will do that for you!


We’re looking forward to a healthier week ahead. I hope yours goes smoothly too.

    Here’s to no more sickness – what a rough year it’s been. I’m over the yuck and all ready for healthy (and I guess hay fever). Hope you all recover to full strength soon.

    The flowers look gorgeous. As does your knitting (as always). Lets hope to a much healthier family and more energy!!

    Hope you all feel better soon. I think my mum’s made that cardy pattern and in very similar colours. It’s a single piece, right? xx
