Flu Flu Go Away...

... come again another day! Blech! I have what feels like the beginnings of the flu. With DH working extreme hours lately, this is the worst time for me to be sick but probably also the time I'm most likely to be sick given I'm starting to feel pretty run down. Today is DH's 13th 10-15 hr day in a row... and there are still many more to come. He has tomorrow off, but that'll be it again, probably for another 13 days. I feel so sorry for him having to work such long hours, but I also feel sorry for me being stuck at home most days with the kids and all the chores etc. I am just so tired!

But enough complaining! I'm mostly pretty lucky and the flu is unlikely to kill me!

I have been up to a little bit of crafting. I have finished making my Dad's birthday present, which is a Kaiser memo block for his desk at work. He has just recently got a new job so I wanted to get him a little something to do with that as part of his present and I thought this was perfect.

Kaiser Memo Block
Memo block - Kaiser, Patterned paper - Fancy Pants Designs, Paint - Kaiser, Sealant - Mod Podge.

And last night, I made this card for DH's Sous Chef whom has just welcomed into the world his first child, a little girl named Tayla. I based this card on CPS sketch #159.

And just cos, I'd like to share this oh so cute photo of Ollie that I took this afternoon as he play on the swing. He is such a happy little boy!

Thanks for popping by!

I hope to have the layout I'm working on all finished and ready to show you next time I post. Til then, happy scrapping!!!
