I just love the idea of this house - how cool would it be as a kids cubby.
I'm sick.....I have some sort of demented monkey flu thing that makes me look like an extra from twilight (like I wasn't pale enough) and sound like a drag queen after to many Marlboro. Attractive eh?
Anyway as Murphy's law would have - I am sick and my body feels like staying in the foetal position for days on end but......my brain has a million ideas........so my blog lovelies anyone have any miraculous illness cures?
So far I'm on ginger tea and as much garlic and chili as I can handle - which surprisingly is quite a lot seeing I am unable to taste or smell. I have honey and some natural cold & flu tablets but am always open to suggestions......actually
the stranger the better...........
What is the strangest, weirdest cure for the common cold/flu thing that strikes us down at the most inconvenient of times?

Thank you to the lovely Kelly who you can find here for awarding my little ol' blog this award! Thank you Kelly - it is very much appreciated and I am very happy because, just like when people comment, it proves that there are people reading my blog and not just my friends making up alter egos.
I know some bloggers are in two minds about awards but I like this one - if something on my blog spreads a bit of sunshine then that's okay with me! I have to pass this on to twelve blogs who I think deserve it which is probably as close to a major trauma I have come - decisions, decisions! All of you will know how bad I am - which is why I am constantly bringing all my major decisions to bring the blog!
Taurus rising (my oracle & guide to all things green and beyond!)
Ngaachi... (beautiful photo's, tales & all with a bubba on the way!)
The Bird Bath (Guide to all things sewing, crafty & has lovely ideas of what to do with kids!)
Punky & Me Great blog & Vic is so cool & gets the best oppy buys
Flux CapacitorBecause Maggie just writes so beautifully and inspires!
Boho Photography Denise is a stunning photographer, great mum and exceptional soul
*e* Because Emily is lovely & it makes me want to have many more babies! (& Yes the Mr flips!)
Spain Daily It makes me want to pack up and move
Happy Foody Great family & recipes.....oh how I wish they were my neighbours
Blue Milk Because I laugh, cry & learn all from one blog
The Byron Life I love all of Megan's ideas, photos & she is a constant source of inspiration
Artdecandence oh...where do I start.....one day I want to be arty & cool enough to be in this blog!
I tried to pick 12 blogs that I loved that I thought spread a little sunshine and people would enjoy - realistically my list would be a million miles long. I also tried to pick blogs that were okay with having awards so that is why some others aren't on the list - check out my blog roll for some inspiring lovely blogs.
Once again thank you to the lovely Kelly - this meant a lot x
* Please by no means anyone feel obliged to pass this on.....I know it is a little 'chain email' but I just thought I would give a small 'shout out!*

This is from here
what a beautiful art project.......
Yesterday Vic wrote a post that really got me thinking....is it easier to exist in an online world than it is in ' real life'? Parts of what she wrote rang true for me, I am more than happy if I'm on my own - I was like that as a kid and I'm like that now - although I am lucky in the sense I have a great group of friends that put up with my idiosyncrasies. I do like people but I can often get way too bogged down in 'doing the right thing' and sometimes just find it easier to be the madam and I.
I also didn't seem to find the solace or camaraderie in mothers group that people seem too. I did make a really good friend through it but we have stayed friends even though I left - she is lovely and is another one that understands that I don't constantly need to be around people. I love my daughter and yes she rules my world but I don't want to sit and talk about her all day! We are also not in the financial situation that seemed to be required for mothers group! If you know what I mean.
But then I was thinking that I don't really find or hear about any sort of 'social pressure' with blogging. Is it because we get to exist on our own terms? What I mean is - you guys aren't going to freak out if I don't turn up one day or if everything I own comes from the oppy. If I read a different book, try my hand at a million creative things until I find the one that fits, make a list after list and only accomplish a little I wont be thrown into the lions den of social judgement.
Is it easier to open our hearts and our lives on line because if we get a response we don't like we can hit delete?
I am not saying this is a good or a bad thing. I love being a blogger. It has forced me to come out and try new things, think about new adventures, consciously parent more than before,etc, etc and most importantly I have met a myriad of brilliant people. I am sure some of us will get to sit down over a coffee or a wine one day and some of us wont but I will always still appreciate and love how the blog world is such a collection of creative, funny, wonderful souls.
