Happy New Year.

Happy New Year to you all.

I hope it's a good one. There was nothing much wrong with 2008, but it was a bit mediocre to be honest and marred with a non-stop series of grotty little niggles. I want 2009 to be a year where we can get on with a few things, you know? A positive year, rather than just blah....

It got off to a bit of a blah start though. Lad has had that rather icky gastro bug for the last few days and has not strayed far from a loo. Then last night Princess started throwing up...she's stopped now but is still feeling rather grey. Then at about two hours into the new year I was struck down with my version of presumably the same tummy bug, but with the best...or worst...of both varients, argh. It was not a pleasant way to kick off a new year!

So today we are all having a quiet day Chez Fishwife. I was planning to pay the ritual New Year's Day visit to the allotment, but as the plumbing up there is merely a bucket I thought it best not to. Instead I have been wandering around with bleach, disinfectant and doing laundry on boil in an effort to stop this bug in its tracks. Joy...

Hope your celebrations were a bit more fun!

Happy New Year! I hope 2009 is every bit as exciting as you want it to be and that the gastrics don't last long :)

Happy New Year, and may it only get better from here on out. Hopefully you will soon be well enough to entertain thoughts of knitting, while being too indisposed for anything more strenuous!

Sounds like our home - 3 cases of upper resp illness, fever, etc. one case of strep, a sister-in law with gastritis, and one sister in law with appendicitis! - fun way to ring out the old and in with the new - Should improve from here on out, huh?
