Hi All
Just a quick update while I'm still able to sit upright.
Paul and I are still both extremely unwell and the hope that we hadn't passed it on
to Damien my son seems to have just died a death...

Paul has just gone to the Doctors with his mum a few minutes ago as I am incapable of
driving at this point due to how sick I am.
Paul's tummy is playing up really badly he hasn't left the toilet in days and is in extreme pain so as he's put it cause he's not in very good mood, he's been frog marched to the doctor..

His greatest fear as always is he will end up in hospital. But truthfully as ill as he is there is no reason for him to be in hospital. He's able to eat and drink and keep it down.. He can keep his sugars controlled if not low so It's just a matter of getting help with his tummy.

I haven't slept in days and I still can't swallow or eat any thing much due to the severeity of the
sore throat and now because of the horrible coffing I am being sick all the time with it as well.
However as it's viral and although I am seeming to be swallowing more than the recommened pain killers doctors wont do anything to help me so I have to continue putting up with the excrutiating pain and vomiting that seem to be going with this viral infection.

Damien has been at Paul's parents for a few days btu now I find he is sick too.. we had hoped that by sending him to mum and dad's for a few days would prevent him from getting this infection no such luck.

Now it's just a matter of whether he is better of staying at mum and dad's or coming home... fortuntately or unfortunately mum and dad and their household have had this virus which is actually how Paul and I got it... so it's not likely that they'll get it again.

What a mess.. and then I get more stress from doing the visa to stay in the UK which I have to have done by end of March and Comcare Australia are causing me more distress...
and I am now seriously looking at suing individuals not just the government in general..
We need a break.. we need this rollercoaster to stop...
Two years since we got married and the only wonderful day that everything seemed to come together is actually our wedding day...
It's too much and it's no wonder that none of us are staying well..
all we want is to have some happiness, to have some calmness and to have some peace.. instead we get sickness, stress, frustration, a flat that no person should have to live in...
The amount of stress we are under is beyond what any normal person should have to cope with..
I've had over 15 years of stresses and truthfully I've had enough...

thanks for reading my rant...
hopefully will have freebie soon
hugs all

MIA and New Award

Hey all

sorry I haven't been around much
my husband is very sick at the moment
and as he's type 1 diabetic, blind and also had kidney failure it's much worse
I'll explain my husband has been sick all his life he was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes when he was 7
due to a number of complications he started losing his sight in 97 totally blind by 98 and unfortunately what they didn't know was he was losing his kidneys too
which they did find out on the day went blind also lost his kidneys as well.
In 94 Paul got a Kidney from his mum which he's nearly perfect match for
which is fantastic but unfortunately due to immuno suppressors and other meds he on
when he gets sick he really gets sick
Because Paul's had a kidney transplant we always have to be watching
and he's had a virus for over 12 days now and it doesn't seem to be getting any better
and we've so got to watch that nothing happens to that kidney
that's why I'm hit and miss at the moment with getting things done

Also I'm not well physically or right now mentally or emotionally due to Paul's being ill and my own depression I suffer with

but thanks for taking the time to visit and hopefully soon I'll be up and creating again fully
Hugs Michelle

Elements Freebies

New Freebie Elements

Well Hi all

I hope your all having a great week

it's been a bit hectic here and until

today I hadn't felt much like creating

Recently I've just started doing my cross stitching again

so am now looking at turning a lot of my photo's into

cross stitch patterns as I have the software to do that.

I look forward to seeing what the results will be.

In the meantime I have done some creating for you and this

now is my kitchen Range...

Apart from the canisters which I learnt some of the settings and how to do them

from a tutorial all others are of my own creating

I'm still trying to get all the settings right

but you get the basic idea and I hope some of the things I've created

can be used by you.

ok so here is a preview of some of the kitchen range

Not all are shown in the preview there is more in the download

hope you have fun

hugs Michelle

yes as my son has said the spoon looks like a frying pan..lol

Well that's it for tonight if you would like to download the Elements you can get

it from here

Happy creating
Hugs Michelle
