Looking forward......

I am looking forward to getting rid of this cold that has plagued me for the past week.

Fin had an ear infection last week and now i have it. You know that horrible nagging pain in the ear. The only thing worse must be toothache!! We have been feeling totally bllleeeuuuuuggggghhhhhh.

We are looking forward to spring soooooo much now too. Getting out in the garden and planting seeds and bulbs. Seeing them bloom into beautiful flowers and tasty vegetables. It seems so long since the summer. This year we surely deserve a long hot summer after the last few disappointing rainy ones.

We had a lovely weekend spent at Mamma and Col-Cols house. There was plenty of singing, dancing, guitar playing, lovely food, drinks and laughter. We all had a great time, and i have acquired more treasure which i will post about soon.

I am the lucky recipient of two awards. The first is from the lovely Mary Poppins

The authors say that blogs who receive this award are exceedingly charming. This blog invests in proximity in space, time and relationships. These kind bloggers aim to find and be new friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandisement. Our hope is that when ribbons of these awards are cut, even more friendships will be propagated. Please give your kind attention to these writers.This has to be passed on to 8 bloggers who will choose 8 more and include the above cleverley written text to the body of the award.

I now have to pass this on to 8 people.

I hope that none of you have had this before so here goes..........

I hope you get to feeling better soon!!

I'm feeling under the weather tonight as well. I'm also lonely since hubby is having to close tonight at his job. I just woke up (6:00pm TX time) from a nap and ate some soup to revive myself. If I sneeze one more time, I swear my head is going to pop off! LOL

Loved your sweet post.
Deanna :) *achoo!*
