Sorry I haven't been around

Hi everyone,

just wanted to apologise to you all, my children are poorly, my youngest has been burning up then ok then burning up, and then yesterday my eldest starting burning up, we phoned the doctor and he was given an appointment, he had more than 3 symptoms so has been given the medication for Swine flu. I'm out of my mind with worry and keep checking they are still breathing at night and taking their temperature. I've been cleaning eveything in the house so we don't get it. I'm so tired but just trying to keep things going. He seems to be ok.
so I haven't been making cards or blogging, I promise when I get back to normal I will come and visit you all much love and hugs Jill xx
