Off colour



We have yet another virus in the house. It's been here since Monday. We've cancelled playdates and eldest hasn't gone back to school yet. I have to admit, I'm tired of viruses.

My colourful beading project is on hold so to perk myself up whilst the little ones were asleep just now I trawled through my photo archive to find some cheerful images. Bottom left is youngest on her second birthday last summer.

If in doubt, make a mosaic.

Thankyou so much for the injection of colour this week - it's been much needed and appreciated. The SOC colour project will be continuing until Monday 10th so pop your blog on the linky list in the last post if you're posting along with us.

There are now 53 members of the SOC Flickr pool. It's really lovely over there - do go and take a look.

Poor you. I too am fed up with viruses. We started with chickenpox and then over the Christmas hols our boiler got hypothermia, the washing machine has a very chesty cough, the dishwasher has severe water retention and worst of all the computer has a virus. We have lost documents, photos and all (or at least some) of my favourite links and sites. BigBean is still working on retrieving stuff but I have had enough of broken things. And not being able to post a little something on my blog.
Get well soon Pebbles. Maybe we'll wait a while before catching up with you... Ax

julie said...

Hope you're feeling better and that the virus has departed. Thanks for the splash of colour - it's been so grey and dismal of late, although today the sun is actually shining - hope it lasts!

Jackie said...

Get well soon. Its a shame that the splash of colour in your house could be red noses.
Well done with the cheery mosaic..its full of lovely memories.
(I just saw the cup you bought me at Peacocks on a TV programme from 2009! They zoomed in on it . How exciting.)
