The month got off to a great start with 3 days away with a load of my crafting buddies from The Twilight Addicts social group on UKS. 10 ladies and 2 guys had a great time, eating, drinking and crafting.
Everyone hard at work -
Lee - my lovely table buddy -
How on earth did I manage to get 30 cards made on such a messy desk LOL!!
We all made our goodbyes on the Monday morning and we headed off home after dropping Lee off at the station. Mr P hadn't felt very well during the night and had a bit of a cough that morning - on the way home he said he was feeling dreadful and went straight to bed as soon as we got in. I got stuck into the unpacking and repacking as we were going away again in 3 day's time. By Wednesday it was obvious that Mr P had a good dose of 'flu so I rearranged our shuttle tickets to the Friday to buy him 1 more day in bed - we could still make the Marillion convention by driving straight to the convention site in the Netherlands on the Friday morning instead of a leisurely drive over on the Thursday. Oh dear!!!!! That night I went to bed feeling a little bit unwell and by Thursday morning it was obvious that I had got 'flu too - after a few tears we knew that there was no way we could make the drive of 355 miles, about a 7 hour journey and so we sadly cancelled our places at the convention.
I spent the next 10 days in bed, we drank 9 bottles of Lucozade and got through 3 boxes of Kleenex as we slowly made our recovery. There is no number for the amount of tears that I shed over missing the convention, I was so looking forward to spending 3 days in a Marillion bubble.
BUT the good news is that there is only 8 more sleeps until we get to go to Wolverhampton for the Marillion UK convention - please keep everything crossed that we stay well enough, we will be gutted if we have to miss this covention too.
