Still ill....

both me and Lyle have had that horrible viral flu for 3 weeks now! Lyle is a LOT better, thankfully. It was very worrying seeing him soo ill, extremly high temp 38/39degrees! glazed look in his eyes... horrible horrible horrible.
Its the worst part of being a parent.
worse part of being a single parent?
running out of medicine/essential foods and having to take a sick child out to get more. I left the food, well grabbed a carton of milk as it was next to the pharmacy in tesco, but medicine was the main priority.

we went back to drs on friday, to get told we're on the mend, but to expect a cough that might last for upto 10 weeks! TEN weeks? my body cant cope with this cough. its horrendous! I sound like I've been smoking 40 a day for 20 years, whereas reality is, ive never smoked a day in my life. when i cough i also start boaking too.. it feels like i have a cobweb in my wind pipe that wont budge, and when im lying down, i can hear the bubbles its making when i breathe.
Hoping to get an appointment tomorrow as im not coping at all.

Lyle is perfectly fine, just has an odd cough now an again. But its not violent like a few days ago.

I had picked out some nice wallpaper for around a year now, but couldnt find any stockists anywhere! and just before i got this dam flu, i found it! John Lewis shop window! so away i goes in get some samples to take home... its £39 a roll, and it looks like i need 4 rolls for the 1 wall.

Sandersons dandelion clocks

whilst thier i found another one, ordered some samples - they still havnt arrived yet :(
its Harlequin Gardenia, and im in love!

This one is my fav! ivory. 

Wanted the dandilion clocks for my living room, £39 a bolt, need 4... Like the idea of the Gardenia one for my room, would only need 1 bolt @£49 (im sure that was only £36 in the shop?)... but as i keep seeing the dandilion one everywhere! on Emmerdale and Hollyoaks to name a few places... ive sort of went off it :( so might just stick with my original bedroom idea of plain white everywhere and bring color in via my bed... and get the harlequin one for the livingroom, but i do not want to pay near £200 for wall paper for 1 wall!

looking at new couch too... one of those interst free for 4 year type deals...
This one is the best couch i have ever sat on in my life! My parents have it. I want it. I NEED it!

well im going to finish this own brand lemsip, then bed, hope i get a better sleep than previous sleeps have been.

night all

I have....


well not full blown 'Flu, as i can still get around, just. but dopping myself up on lemsip type drinks (diluting juice with cool boiled water and a disolvable paracetamol) is making me very drowsy :(

not done much in the way of crafting.
tonight is the first ive went on the computer in over a week, only went to uni monday and tuesday, have stayed off the rest of the week sleeping!

read a few books and downloaded some music for on the trains... (uploaded some old albums i have lying around the house... kelis, pink, b.e.p, nirvana, verve, eminem, dr dre, nate dogg, zutons, christina aguleria, rhianna, JT   and loads more. im going to be a happy traveller this week :))

started a wee crafty group on facebook, we are aiming to make at least one item a month. ive done 2 egg cosys, one with wool the other with garden/packaging string, its like a plastic material...

Monkeys been in the papers a bit lately. they got him a plaque and it was unvailed the day before his birthday (i cried a lot that week), and this week his mates who where serving with him and missed his funeral due to still being in that hell hole, came to our town on wednesday and played in the town (he was part of the pipe & drums for 1st Battalion Scots Guards) they played a lament to him at his grave too....
man i miss him like crazy.

i started a new job. work in chaplins bar, every saturday and sunday night :( its ok, not too busy, i remember when u couldnt move in the place now the most ive had in at one time was 20odd people, and thats cause the bingo was on!!!

well i think im tired enough now that when i go to bed i'll actually get some sleep, unlike last night, i was shattered, went to bed with the wean, and i was asleep before 7pm! woke up at frikkin 11pm and was up till 3am! tossing and turning, went down stairs for some cold water, went to toilet, was tempted to put computer on, but then id ahve been on all night.
might even get a wee lie in tomorrow. doubt it tho.

oh wait, thiers the crazy wind starting again! its to be 13mph today :( as if the trees being uprooted and squashing cars and roofs flying off wasnt bad enough ;(

oh oh oh!
2 types of news to give.

my aunt Betty fell on ice at Hogmany, she was kept in hospital for quite a long time considering she hurt her ankle... well they where doing lots of test on her, she's had heart/lung type problems for years (smoking doesnt help they and we keep telling her), been in  and out a fair bit over the past few years.
2 weeks ago they told her she has lung cancer.
they cant operate.
wont take the chance with her heart.
suppose now its just the waiting game.

Last week i was out at her house with my mum and my cousin was thier, asking me how i lost weight, she was saying no matter what she does, she cant shift it... was complaining about this movement in her stomach... joked about looking 10 months pregnant, and that it felt the same way it did when her daughter (whos 16) was kicking her.....
no one thought anything of it.
this week she found out she was 6 months pregnant.
some sort of happy news for the family at last! (I'll go into the familys run of crappy luck another time)

now you would think, at being 39 and already having been pregnant once before, that she would 'know' or at least notice the signs...
well the thing is.. she has been STERALIZED for over 3 years!
yep thats right, steralized! and now 6 months pregnant.
Due on 23 May (or upto 4 weeks before, needs another scan to check) with a girl.

Just goes to show, even drastic measures to stop procreating doesnt work.

A wee recentish pic of the part of family in question. (I have over 80 people in my close/immediate family, this was just my mums side event, a 1st holy commumion in May 2010 for my cousin Paul's son, Betty's grandson)

Me,Cousin Angela (now pregnant), Jennifer (Angela's Daughter), Craig (Pamela's Son), Cousin Pamela, Aunty Bernie, Uncle Jim, Aunty Betty.
 So far the year twentyeleven has been horrible. infact from twentyten onwards.
when will it get better?

night all.
