WOYWW #400 - History Repeating Itself

This exact time last year I got flu after having had a cough for a number of weeks, and so it is again!

Not sure if it is flu this year or just a nasty sore throat, aches and sore skin type of virus but I'm off work feeling yuk!

So on my desk is just an empty tissue box, indicative of my condition.
Photo taken from my sick bed!

I did do a couple of basic scrapbook pages over the weekend.

A university visit with my son and our road being resurfaced plus our postman!

Also an impromptu birthday card for one of my husband's friends who had a party which is where I probably got this virus as his wife was ill with something!!! Ho Hum

Happy WOYWW Everyone.

Happy 400th WOYWW. Snap! I had flu from just after Christmas to about 10 days ago, and then I caught a cold from my eldest granddaughter (symptoms starting on Sunday). The sore throat has been the worse symptom - today I have started sneezing. I am really looking forward to finally feeling well for more than a few days. I started some ATCs yesterday, but now they are sitting on my desk whilst I hide out in the living room. I plan to get back to my craft room after lunch and walking the dog (the problem with having animals is that they still need care when we are ill). Ali x #4

Sorry to read you are ill. We've had a flu outbreak in the States, too. It has hit hard in many states.

Your 42 is wonderful. I see you are also a fan of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Universe.

Oh its miserable isn't it - I've had something for about 4 weeks, just shaking it off now..not very often I get forced back to bed by feeling crappy, hope yours passes very soon. Your scrapbook page is fun and reminds me that I should do a page about my wonderful postman too - he may not know it, but he is an essential cog in my life machine!

Hope you're feeling better soon. Funnily enough my brother's 42nd birthday card used the same theme! Douglas Adams eat your heart out. Happy 400th WOYWW. Sarah #17/18?

Just popped over to say thanks for the comment and noticing I've been awol, I sent you a reply email but I don't know if you'll get it or not so I'm doubling up with this! Just having a stressful time at the moment - I don't know if I'll have anything to show this coming Wednesday. I hope you are soon feeling better, there are a lot of nasty coughs about, my nephews have both been off school with it and I'm keeping my distance from them!!
Take care,
Diana x
