Baking. . .


I have spent most of the week in bed with flu. I had no ordinary flu I had "Man-Flu" (the nasty, all consuming, moaning, shaking uncontrollably, sweaty, smelly, splitting headache, crawling (yes there was crawling and dribbling) dying very loudly Man-Flu.  I'm sure at one point I did die but no-one was around to see it, so I undied.  Mr Hollywood thought it would be nice to share his man-flu with me. I love, that, man but sometimes I just want to whack him, if I had had the energy to open my eyes and move my arm I would have.  He of course soldiered on to work infecting everyone in his path who hadn't already been infected.  Got to love the generosity of the man....NOT!
I, me, myself, took my man-flu to bed and stayed there. I emerged yesterday like a crumpled butterfly, mangy moth more like and ventured to the sofa and stayed there.
Baker girl is the only thing I've manged to paint this week...hopefully she can magic some food into our empty fridge or it's bread and water till I go shopping on Monday...if I'm well enough of course...

Will be joining Sunday Sketches from the the comfort of my sofa....xx

Oh, I love Baking Girl, hope she does "magic" some food into your house, there is nothing worse that feeling rotten and needing to go to the grocery because you are literally out of anything that could be considered food.

Hope you feel better soon!

When a woman gets man flu it is ten times worse. You are one brave and courageous girl to even pick up a pencil. Hope you feel better soon. xx

Sorry that you didn't feel well, but I love your baker girl. Hopefully you can do some art and some baking next week!

Zafaran said...

Thank God you 'undied' out of 'Man Flu' and whipped up baker girl out of your magic colors...now you just have to wait till the bread is baked and food is on the table! She looks like she knows exactly what a girl who is recovering from flu needs! :-) Hugs to you!
Love to visit you!
Even with the flu! ;-)

Hi, Catherine! Hope you are well by now! Me, I have spent several days traveling in the south of Spain (AndalucĂ­a, the region where I was born) and we have had all the rain in the world! And, of course, I have caught a beautiful flu too, so, we have returned home, in Madrid, after ten days with lots of rain everywhere :(

Your little girl is adorable, as usual, Catherine! Love her!

Kristin Aquariann said...
