Coming up for air

Despite telling the world earlier today that I was horizontal and poorly I must tell you about recent events in the Cowboys and Custard household.....
I woke up this morning with my throat feeling like grade 3 sandpaper.. Rough! and pretty achey and .. in a word GROTTY!
Now some time ago I arranged with one of my dear fellow bloggers Nicky @ Vintage Magpie, for her to come visit me in Bath as she was bringing some of her adorable family of teddies and bunnies to present to some of the fabulous individual shops that we are famous for here in this fine city. Nicky brought her good friend Asti @ Lilys House.. who makes Beeeuuuuutiful bags so I had the pleasure of meeting both lasses and with them they brought some of their wonderful crafted wares..

Now before I am lynched for being a fraud.. I was ill... I am ill... I couldn't get hold of Nicky and Asti on their convoluted journey from Devon to warn them that I was full of lurgy and if they wanted to bring a wreath of garlic to ward off the germs.. to do so!
So I got up.. put on clothes.. put on kettle... and waited for the heroic duo to arrive..via sat nav.. and they did..eventually but nearly detouring to Bournmouth..(sorry girls)
Well was such a pleasure to meet these two girls who have ooodles of talent between them and happen to be very friendly and lovely to chat to ..too!
As they departed Nicky gave me this..

I could hardly wait to unwrap it though such a shame to spoil the wrapping as it was so prettily packaged..
Inside was the most appropriate and pretty present of tissues in a lovely rose pocket..

Thank you so so much girls.. it was such a pleasure to meet you both and please don't tell the other bloggers that I live in a hovel and have two heads... our little secret!

Now I am tucked up in bed again whilst they run riot in town...
Good luck Nicky & Asti.... I hope the bunnies and bags found new homes.. though you should have left Beatrice bunny with me..a bunny with a huge character.

Now Let me also tell you that Pickles has been tagged by Captain Rupert at Higglety Pigglety..
He is taking this very seriously and giving it much thought ... in between naps and eating plates of tuna.. I ask you!
He will report back later today with his answers..

Much gratitude and appreciation for your sympathetic comments... on earlier post. They really do help lift the old spirits! Thank you xxxx
Now it's off to la la land for a while...ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Bless your little heart...I HATE sore throats, runny noses, fever, feeling like a truck just ran over you! Please feel much better today!
I'll be back by to check on you, friend girl....
hugs (but not too close..I don't want "it" ) :)

When I saw the name of your blog at another blog, I was so intrigued I had to find my way here. I knew a name like that had to have a person with a sense of humour and full of creativity. I was right.

I hope you enjoy The Kite Runner. I loved it!! What a powerful story.

Michele, I am so pleased you have re-emerged from under that duvet, what a lovely place to be, but not so lovely to be 'full of lurgy', although better to be indoors catching some 'zeds'. I got in about an hour ago, feeling pretty cold and wet, it is horrible out there, I have now warmed up after sitting here in my coat waiting for the central heating and downing a huge cup of tea. Anyway you keep warm and get your thinking head on for your next post. x
