Waving the white flag...

By my last count...

So far this year...

Between the four of us...

We have a total of:

1 bout of tonsillitis
8 viruses (obviously this is per person, it's super fun when everyone is sick at the same time)
1 bout of flu
1 case of conjunctivitis
1 sprained ankle (hubby)
1 migraine that lasted 4 days

I'm waving the white flag to you germs, you won, great job and all that...

but...

could you just give us a minute???

As you can imagine I've been kind of down. In fact with the added delight of constant rain I was pretty much flat on the floor.

But as always happens little by little you start to feel better and you see little things around you...

that make you feel happier...

Little things like...

Any break in the rain, we've been missing blue skies...

Rain drops that always look like diamonds on this tree...
 A lone flower in my bare winter garden...
The moon shining in the afternoon sky...

There isn't many yet but i'm searching hard.

Plus to give the universe a little nudge I decided that we would just go away at half term. Like we did this time last year when things were tough. It was like a reset button.

And I for one can't wait.
