Whine and a moan

It is time for a little whine and a moan.  I lost my voice last Tuesday- mid  class it went from singing and talking to whispering in 10 minutes.  The strangest experience, I have lost my voice before but not without warning.  It was the last class of the morning and I thought I would rest up and it would return. Hmm, Sunday, running a temperature, a mountain of tissues and wondering about how next week will be.  Two very welcome parcels this week though.  I did a fabric swap with Charise- what lovelies she sent, vintage in there as well as modern.  I can only fantasise  about her great her fabric stash is.
I have got to know Charise via Flickr and admiring her creations...take a minute to look at this.  See what I mean!   Thankyou Charise!
I was also lucky enough to win a giveaway at Wynn's ZakkaArt blog.  She has recently posted a tutorial for a lovely patchwork bag- see the links here.  A beautiful stack of 4 fat quarters in pretty colours, gorgeous and soft.  Thankyou Wynn!


So I am sniffing, snuffling and croaking away.  Other crappy things this week: my phone broke- life without my Blackberry is sadly a bit hard, there is a magic man nearby who is fixing it for a small fee, hoepfully back by Thursday.  The mouse on my computer bust, and my laser printer packed up too.    My head has not been up to speed either- I tried to dial my own phone number today, and numerous pans have been burnt, water left on etc.  A costly week.
Normal service will be resumed soon.  I was meant to be seeing Ben Howard play tonight, too poorly to go, I've sold my tickets and made someone else and her daughter very happy, so I'll leave you with this and stop the whinge.  I'll be better soon and  I will try and feel 'gracious' too.

  1. Dear, dear... Reading the blog I must conclude you have every right to moan and even whine. Nothing better for feeling poorly than a good moan. Hopefully someone is there with you to spoil you with tea and honey and fresh tissues! Feel better soon!

  2. I'm so sorry to hear that you are sick Kerry...I am too! I have a miserable sore throat and can't talk as a result and I am congested. I hope we both rebound quickly!

  4. You have every right to moan whine, cry, snif or anything else it takes to make you feel better. It's just a bit of a horrid time to get through.
    It could be worse though ...
    Get well soon!

  7. Oh no! When I was doing theatre we would often steep ginger in tea when we were losing our voices. maybe that would help? Can't help with the others except to say that curling up with a good book or a sweet sewing project lifts my spirits immeasurably. Hope you're feeling better soon! xoxox
