Euuuergh!


I think I've picked up some kind of bug from Sweet Cheeks as I'm feeling pretty grotty as I write this. You know how they bring all sorts of things back from Nursery etc with them. If it's a cold, you can be sure Very Understanding Hubby will get it and if it's tummy related, you can guarantee it'll knock me for six. Sweet Cheeks was a little out of sorts at the beginning of last week, then Very Understanding Hubby got a cold, so I guess it's only fair I feel pants now!

Thanks to everyone that hes e-mailed and left supportive comments about Toddler Taming. It's just a phase. Sweets Cheeks seems to have a period of about three weeks where he is a complete MINX and then he'll settle right down again for a while. This is just a particularly trying Minx Run!

Monday morning of course means a new challenge over at Cupcake and this week, The Cupcakes have let me loose on you. With Fathers Day fast approaching, (Gulp!) I thought it would be nice to do something for them. So, get your boy and man stash out because it's: Boy, Oh Boy, Oh Boy.

We are joined again this week by Funky Farm Scrapbook Barn and our monthly sponsor is Little Claire Designs. Both have fabby shops, well worth checking out. Anyhow pop over to Cupcake for all the details and check out the wonderful creations from The Cupcakes.

As for me, I'm gonna wrap up in my duvet and hope I feel better soon. Have a great week...

Hi ~Fluffers
Sorry to hear you are a bit "off", me 2. I have had a touch of "Tummy" trouble for three days, not awful just feeling a bit sick etc. There are a lot of bugs flying around. Working with children is just asking for trouble, so cannot get away from it really. Get well soon, sorry I sometimes have not commented on your cards, I am not always able to do it!!. Debbiexx

Hope you feel better soon Faye.

We used to find that Josh got grizzley/stopped sleeping/naughty just before he had a development leap - so could be that!

Also, apparently, they get hormone "flushes" throughout their development - not sure how true that is - but it could be one of these - all that brutal manly type behaviour coming out!

Hope you feel better soon hun - fabby card even though you were rough!
