Happy Halloween...I think not!

Over the last couple of weeks I have been getting ready for Halloween . This was to be our first real Halloween experience. Kids were getting excited I was getting excited we had a early picnic to got too and then there was to be trick or treating but alas I was not meant to experience it. I ended up being sick earlier this week and that put all excitement related activities to bed(and me to for that matter). At the point at which I got sick I still hadn't completed the kids trick or treat bags so Wednesday morning I dragged myself out of bed to finish them off. They could have been better but they did the job. They held the stash and that was the most important thing. Being sick at this particular time leads me onto another point for discussion and that is I always seem to get sick when I have alots of things to do. As well as Halloween to get ready for I also had to get my place ship shape for my mum and mother-in-law to come for a visit. I don't have a overly big place here but it still gets very messy and dusty and things need to be done. I'm sure they wouldn't have given two hoots whether the place was not clean when they arrived but I like to have a tidy place for guests.Am I crazy or do others think like me?
Anyway they are here now, I am better and the place was clean but it has gone back to being it's normal self. Untidy!!!!!
A good weekend to all.

OH, i hear you, i stay fit & eat right, don't get enough sleep, but you know . . . & yes, i get sick at the worse possible times. Doesn't help when you run a business, have a brood of children & a husband always away. I've never dealt with stress well, migraines since i was 4, always at exam time, especially at Uni. I am very calm, but obviously my body is saying somethig else. This weekend i was sick & skipped the markets, kept hydrated then a dip in the pool with the family, then i slept for 3 hours in the afternoon. Poof. I need to look after myself more, thus hiring Melissa & getting to bed earlier. I don't want to look old before my time!! Love Posie
