Thank you ...

Hello my beautiful friends. I have finally got some energy to quickly pop online and thank each and everyone of you for your beautiful well wishes and love. Just to hear that you took the time to leave such lovely comments brightened my days more than you could possibly know.

It was so nice to get home from hospital yesterday. I was begining to feel like a pin cushion lol... But the worst thing about it all was that I had to miss attending my sisters wedding in Western Australia. I was to be one of her bridesmaid's and it just broke my heart that I couldn't be there for her.

Thankfully before this all happened, I had all my posts scheduled to go. Thank you also to my lovely DT friends for taking up the slack for me, you're all amazing.

See you in a few day and thank you again my dear friends.

Love xo

Jackie is out of Hospital today

Good news, Jackie is coming home today. I am sure once she is home and well rested she will be on-line in a flash.

The rest of the clan are also well.

Well out with the vacuum cleaner, clothes in the washing machine, bust some dust and light some scented candles for her impending return.

Update on Jackie

Hello to all, and thankyou to those who have been wishing Jackie well. Jackie's condition was caused by a virus, headaches included. After adjustments to her medication she is now starting to feel better, however she will have to stay in hospital one more day. Kids will have to put up with my poor culinary skills, oh well you cannot be good at everything.

Jackie's sister Helen is getting married today in Perth, so poor Jackie has also missed out on this important event. All in all it has been one week we would all rather forget.

Hi from Jackie's husband

Well, my dear wife is still in hospital, she is starting to feel better but still has a bad headache. Hopefully we will get some response from the doctors soon, after a number of tests have been done.

Erin who posted the last update now has tonsilitis and is sick in bed herself. Well, its my birthday today, at least I am upright and mobile.

When jackie returns, she will no doubt be straight onto the computer to check emails and update all those out there that she is back in action.


Bizzy Becs August Challenge...

Well it's the 5th of the month and that means a new challenge over at BIZZY BECS. The theme this month is BLUE BUTTERFLY...

Hi friends,

This is just a quick message from Jackie's daughter, Erin to let everybody know that Jackie will be taking a short break from blogging while she recovers in hospital after a bout of dehydration. Knowing mum, she will already have some beautiful cards lined up and scheduled to be published. The whole family is missing her so, so much and hoping she makes a quick recovery so she can be back home soon.

Love you mum xoxoxo
