By now I should be at the Crisis Ops Centre half way into my second day of volunteering. Instead I am half way into my 4th day of flu like thing. Haven't seen anyone since got back from work on thursday afternoon. Have barely made a dent on my Quality Street.

Although I did have a bit of a play and make them into a spiral.

Bit sad really but gave me something to do on one of my brief stints out of bed. 

It's nearing the end of 2010 and so I've been thinking about my blog book. 
Blog Books
It'll be my 6th and probably the one with the widest ranging contents. I've used Blurb for each of them. They have a tool that slurps the blog posts and some years the pictures too into a basic format and then you just take it from there. I always used to look forward to reviewing all my posts and going back through photos but this time it's going to be a tad upsetting. I spoke to Pooch yesterday which was nice but also very sad. There he was with his lovely family and here I was in bed feeling like death and on my own. Bit glum making.

Ah well. 

Before I completely run out of puff (I know this blog post is boring but I am literally too knackered to think of anything remotely interesting to say) let me show you two FOs. The first is a baby hoody for a little one due in January.

Exceptionally simple pattern and free too. On Ravelry here. The second is my dad's christmas jumper.

I used a standard raglan pattern but added this lovely saxon cable up the arms. Sadly, it's still here with me since I was supposed to be meeting up with that side of my family on thursday but had to cancel because of my cold. 

OK, enough misery. Back to bed.

I'm so sorry that you have been poorly - that's the pits at Christmas - not what you need at all. I hope your review of your blog isn't too painful and that you have a better year coming up around the corner. Take good care of yourself xxxx

Hope you feel better soon - the flu I had 10 days ago lasted about 5 days of feeling absolutely dreadful so hopefully you're nearly there now!

awwwww, poor you, it's rotten to be ill at Xmas whatever your plans.
drink lots of fluids ( limit the alcohol!!) and get well soon.
2011 will be better! ;-)

Hope you feel better really soon - what a miserable way to spend Christmas.
