Hello lovelies. I have a tummy bug and it's horrible. I'm feeling better than I was yesterday when I couldn't even walk up the stairs to my room without having to lie down on the floor for a few minutes to let the nausea and dizziness subside. I can actually sit up today. I spent most of yesterday lying down on the lounge with a blanket. I've barely eaten because food makes me feel queasy. I had a 1 piece of dry toast and 2 crackers yesterday. I will try and eat more today if I can. Jason came over last night to use my laptop for work and he bought me some ice blocks because I felt like them. Only thing I could probably stomach. He's so wonderful.
It's horrible because this tummy bug is going around and I know a fair few people who have gotten it these past few weeks. It hits you really hard too. I think I had it in my system for a few days before it really hit me because I had been getting cold chills even when it was quite warm. Sunday night I was feeling chilly and Jason was feeling hot.
Anyway, I was meant to work today but of course I couldn't. And in a few days time I was meant to go down to Bathurst with Jason and his family to attend his cousin's wedding. But I don't think I could last a 13 hour drive on Thursday even if I am feeling better. Long car trips can make me feel a little sick anyway. So it looks like I won't be going which is a shame. Especially because Jason is going to be the MC for the reception.
Well just to keep this post a bit prettier, I have some photos from Laura's birthday from Saturday night.
This was part of my present to her. I usually give bits and pieces and package it up.
Prettifying the gift bags. I made the bauble using feathers and those plastic baubles you can buy from an art shop.
I gave that print to her as a thank you for doing our engagement photos.
Pretty fairy lights. And I adore her mirror.
Her candelabra and a sampling of the food she prepared.
A collection of pretty teacups.
On her coffee table. I gave her the book in the middle for Christmas last year. I love the book on top " This little Piggy went to Prada"
The cupcakes she made as her cake. The cupcake wrappers are gorgeous!
Lovely Laura is the perfect housewife. She just needs a pretty apron.
The rest of these photos are Laura's.
Written on one of the cards she received.
All the girls. Minus her sister. That's her lovely mum on the end on the right.
After dinner just chatting.
Wearing the cupcake wrappers on our head like a crown. It made me want to have an Alice in Wonderland party next year.
It was such a gorgeous night. She's the perfect hostess and dinner was lovely. It's given me some ideas of what to do for my 25th (eek) birthday next year. I'm actually having my birthday on the last day of our honeymoon but when we get back I would love to do something for it.
Have a great week. And I'm going to go back to resting on the couch.
