friday random

this week.

amount of cake eaten at gluten free food fair/cake hunt - too much....
amount of hours that both children have been well this week - too few....
amount of pain it is possible to be in when you have conjunctivitis - too much....
amount of times someone can say to you "oh my, your eyes are red" - too many...
number of photos I've taken this week that I could put on this post to make it pretty/interesting/less dull - none....
number of times I've tried to think of something to post about and failed - several...
number of children's birthday parties I am trying to organize - two...
number of ideas for birthday parties - one...

I am going in search of inspiration, motivation and energy.

I may be some time.

if you think I am taking too long please send a search party.

and maybe one of those dogs with a barrel of whisky around it's neck.

  1. I sympathise, I have conjunctivitis at the moment as well, red eyes are not a good look. I like the sound of the gluten free food fair :)

    1. eyes are much better today thanks, never had that before, never want it again! hope your's recover soon, I read online to use tea to treat them... not sure if I helped but it was an excuse to sit down and drink a cup first x the gluten free food fair was advertised on coeliac uk website, if you keep an eye out there may be something near you. or even not that near, we drove really quite a long way.......

  3. Oh dear, poor you. I seem to be permanently without photos at the moment, I'm blaming the low winter light. I do hope you have a better weekend. Can I suggest something easy for the birthday party. I quite often do the simplest thing possible when it all seems to be a bit of a struggle. Do let me know if you find some energy somewhere, I could do with a bit too. Take care, CJ xx

  5. I'm sorry to hear about the ill health in your house. Conjunctivitis is terrible, I know that all too well. I hope everyone is back to normal soon. I'm pretty sure that if I went on a cake hunt, I'd eat myself sick, so I can understand what happened there. :)

    party planning - choose a movie, serve finger food, have a sleep over

  10. Goodness, sore eyes, sick children, birthday parties to organise, you must be feeling rather burdened by it all. I hope your eyes get better soon, children get better soon and organisation and inspiration for birthday parties comes to you unbidden. East some cake. :)

  11. When you find motivation, inspiration and energy (or even just one of them), could you please send some my way? Good luck with the birthday parties, it is such a bad time of the year for birthdays, so many other social events to attend to etc. We have two birthdays to go, one teenage one and the littlest one, too. Hope the conjunctivitis is under control by now. x

  12. Oh no--I hope your eyes are much better very soon! xx

  13. At least you have one birthday party idea! Better than none. I hope your eyes are soon better - that can't be helping with being able to do anything at all.

  14. Oh gosh, have I to call someone for you as well.....? Ouch to the conjunctivitis, sounds horrible and birthday parties......praise heaven I never have to do another one, always terrified me, would rather have all the bosses in the entire company to dinner than have a child's party. Hmm, not exactly an encouraging statement, sorry.....
