Well that was the week that was! - or wasn't in our case : (((
Our house was visited by the dreaded and awful Covid 19 last week.
Goodness knows how or where my husband got got infected - but he did
We don't go out except to walk the dogs, have our shopping delivered and are extraordinarily careful - yet still my husband tested positive almost 2 weeks ago now. Thankfully he wasn't too ill- but it was bad enough. Thankfully neither myself nor my son got it - again goodness knows how, not so much after the test came back but don't know how we avoided it in the days before he knew
We all self isolated, my hubby in the bedroom with ensuite where I provided a meals service - I will be billing him the £1750 which seems to be the rate set by the government at a later date : )))
I made camp in the spare room and used the family bathroom and spent my days in the kitche n and conservatory with our two puppies. My son who is disabled and has support workers daily holed up in his room which has it's own bathroom and kitchen. We did exactly as we were told to do and we all came out intact. I don't ever want a week and a half like that again, I was exhausted at the end of every day. It was lovely to have the puppies for company but no joke having a 6 month old cocker spaniel who needs lots of daily exercise and a 10 week old Cavalier King Charles not yet house trained and all it did was rain! - they and I spent the week covered in mud and I spent more ours than I can count freezing in the back garden - that and cooking, cleaning and running around after everone else - with my mask on -in my own home !!
But I'm thankful we are all fit and well, the stress and worry of the situation was enough let alone the horrible illness. So I join with those who say
Stay safe, stay home
Believe me it's an awful experience
I didn't get time to post my card for Fab'n'Funky challenges last week and the challenge ends today
The theme is an easy one
chosen by our lovely N-Eva
I had made this card for my husband's birthday just the weekend before all of this happened.
I had treat myself to the lovely Young at Heart collection from Heartfelt Creations when it was on offer around Christmas. A collection I always wished I had bought first time round - even better as a bargain second time around!
This is what I did
8x8 inch card
Papers all from the young at heart paperpad
Die cut sentiment words - Crafters Companion
It was a quick, easy masculine card that looked great on our mantlepiece!
Hurry along to Fab'n'Funky to enter this week - it closes tonight
