Very Quiet

Today has been very quiet.  The bug that bear had has spread to DH and I and it's been, well, a mix.

There is always a bright side.  Sometimes you have to scramble for it, but it's always there.  We may both be feeling rough, but it's not all bad.  Today bear has hung out on the computer while actively not doing his homework and DH and I have watched back to back episodes of Arrow.  We must have watched four this afternoon and I expect to watch another two this evening.  So while I have had the pleasure of DH's company I have also made massive strides on my knitting.  Poor DH has been very badly hit and has spent most of the time enjoying the fight scenes while stretched out under a blanket and occasionally dozing.

I am really enjoying the knitting.  It's going to be a wrap when I've finished.  I should have finished off the sweater I've already started or the slip over for uncle, but this is easy and, at this moment, easy is good.


  1. Hope you and your husband both feel better, soon.

  2. Fortunately (at this point I have probably jinxed it) we have avoided any major winter illness for the last few years, but when, about 4 chrimblies ago, my youngest son and I were hit by the flu - oof that was hard - on everyone!I don't recall much of that December but I do know I read a lot and sat on the settee with a feverish child while my poor husband rushed around looking after everything!

  3. Can't wait to see your shawl - I hope you share a picture when finished.

    I hope you all feel better soon! When I Skyped Mum on Sunday she said she'd not been well since Wednesday - sore throat, runny nose etc. No fun. Luckily it hasn't hit here yet.
