I have.......

~...... SWINE FLU!!!! It all started on Friday night when I started coughing, then yesterday I had a horrible headache all day and spent most of the day in bed. Then I decided to do the survey on NHS website to do with swine flu and it said I should phone my doctor...... which I ignored because I still thought I had a cold. Anyway I was sick through the night and felt even worse this morning so I called NHS 24, who had a doctor call me and she confirmed it..... I have swine flu......

~My sister, Sharon and her partner Chris, went to the hospital to pick up my tamiflu and brought me a lovely care package with a card, chocolates, a teddy, bubble bath and a tin of minestrone soup which was really sweet of her. I've been curled up in bed with the laptop for most of the day, playing on Facebook and getting so many texts I can't count. I have to stay in the house for 5 - 7 days so that'll be fun...... all my plans for the week are cancelled and I'm staying in bed till I'm feeling at least a bit better.
~In other news, I got this photo from my sister Lisa over MSN today...........
~Yes that is my mum, playing on a swing at the park!!! She was having so much fun, I wish I had been there to watch!!!!
~Also Jean's Art Doll's is starting their own challenge blog, Dare to Be Different - our DT call has gone up so come join in!!! I am the DT co-ordinator and I will be helping to set the monthly layout and art journal/altered book challenges.
~That's me for now, I'm off to see how my Facebook Zoo is going,
