I've survived the Craflu, and now it's time to survive the real thing!

At the market on Saturday, CurlyPops, FlickettySplits and I shared some delicious germs. Since then, the three of us (and many more, I'm sure!) have been sniffling away in our crafty wonderlands, and today, of all days, my sniffles became an all-out flu!

Why is today important? Because it's my Birthday! Yay!

So, I'm looking on the bright side. I've got to spend the day snuggled up in my yummy pyjamas under a fluffy blanket in my warm bed, with cats and dogs and the lovely Sharon to keep me company. I received the most stunning present from the delightful Nikki over at My Black Cardigan in the post, and I get to spend the evening sharing my flu with 15 of my closest friends at my favourite Melbourne restaurant.

It should be a delicious day, but I'm pretty sure I won't be posting new items on Etsy. I'm very sorry to those waiting for Passport Covers, Mini Totes and Notebook Covers-I promise to get them up as soon as I can breathe through my nose and hear out my right ear!

Aw poor you. At least you look on the bright side of having the flu, and get to spend it all snuggled up with those you love!! Happy Birthday!
PS make sure when you get better that you are not breathing out your right ear and hearing out your nose!! ; )

Happy Birthday and I'm sorry you're sick! It should be against the laws of nature for one to fall sick on one's birthday! Hope you are better soon but until then, lots of soup and snuggling on the couch is the go.

Happy Birthday Sandra. I'm so sorry that you're sick for your birthday...what a bummer!
It's amazing how many crafty taureans are out there in blogland.
I'll be thinking of you as I'm sniffling along!

Happy Birthday, Sandra!

Bummer you have the flu, though. That's no way to celebrate!

Get better soon, and enjoy your birthday in spite of the snuffles.

Oh yes, the damn flu - poor you! And on your birthday! That is no good at all. Fatpuss hopes you get better soon. (He's the model for Catticus, being big, black and fat as all get out. Grimth, while adorably fat, hasn't a patch on the true Fatpuss....)
