Sniff, Sniff, Atishoo ...

... Bleurgh!!!

Half term week has been one long yucky stinky pooey cold.

It started with blondie son then hopped across to blondie daughter, she kindly shared it with me and now handsome hubby has a sore throat.

Note - the glass contains red wine and not echinacea which should, of course, be taken in moderation!!

We couldn't not do pancakes on Tuesday though ...

Neither could we avoid the snow ...

Flowers always cheer me up ...

... so does spending an afternoon playing with paints, with blondie daughter ...

My Mum bought us some hyacinths last weekend for our anniversary and they were just about to burst into flower ...

Blondie daughter preferred doing a still life ...

We had a little birthday lunch for Mum in the week ...

I've been dying to show you the card we bought her ...

Just brilliant!  Does it strike a chord with any of you?!  One day I'll tell you about the coat I bought off eBay which turned up in a black bag and had clearly been involved in some sort of fire ..!

Off to blow my nose again and fetch blondie son from ANOTHER party.

Keep smiling.



  1. Oh those paintings are beauiful, you are a great artist :)

    All things nice...

  2. Heather, I think you need to make room for me on your couch if you've got the wine!

    Being poorly is PANTS!!!

    Love your paintings - you've kept that talent hidden so far!
    Hope you feel better soon.

  3. Oh my word your paintings are beautiful.
    I hope you are feeling better soon.

  4. Gorgeous watercolours Heather - and what a lovely painting by your daughter!
    Get better soon

  5. Get well soon, this cold that is going around is just awful, I've had it all weekend. xxx

  6. hope you're all on the mend soon :) my fave remedy is fresh root ginger, fresh lemon and honey, steeped in a cup of boiled water - tastes delish.

    omg, your paintings are so beautiful! lucky children to have such a talented mum :)

  7. Just found your blog and it's lovely, I'm going to have a good nosey when I have a minute!! I'd love to be able to paint some flowers as beautiful as yours, and that card just reminds me of ME. Lucey xx
