Thank you Secret Pal

My SP has done it again. A beautifully wrapped parcel sent to tempt me but I was strong & waited until a pictures had been taken:

My pal is a whizz at card making & I now know that also applies to wrapping paper too - look here for a close up.

I adore the colours in this yarn & can't wait to use it. In fact it's now caused a bit of a dilema. I need to do the second Lacy Scallop sock (see the first one here) & had then planned to make a pair for DH with the Lana Grossa Mega Boot Stretch that I bought when he whinged that I hadn't made any for him yet. Mmmm will have to be unselfish & do his first.

My SP also included some Lush goodies as she's also a massive fan:

The 'Big Blue' bathbomb is a favourite of hers & I can't wait to try the bubble bath bar on the right.

With all these plus the present s from my Not So Secret Pal I'm feeling rather spoilt which is nice as I feel awful. I started feeling ill yesterday with a very sore chest, a sore throat & no energy. A trip to the doctor today & I've got a viral infection in my intercostal muscles called Tietze's Syndrome which explains why it hurts so much to breathe. I spent the morning sleeping & have pottered around the house this afternoon. Apparently it can take 6-8 weeks to clear up but I need to be back on my feet a lot sooner than that.

So sorry to hear that your are ill, hope you get better soon.

Take care.

I'm just recovering from something very similar - you have my sympathy. It really is better to relax and go with it and not push yourself with this one

Sorry to hear you're not well. Hope you get better soon, and like Yvonne said, you're just going to have to rest - other things will have to wait. Lovely parcel from your SP. Take care

Poor you, hope you feel better soon.

Ugh, it's bad enough that you feel horrible, but no one wants to hear that what they've got is a "syndrome." :-S I hope you can get some rest and heal up soon.

that sounds so uncomfortable: bet the heat is making it even worse. Thinking of you...

Hope you feel better soon (and that it doesn't take nearly as long as 6-8 weeks!)
Lovely goodies from your SP. And I love the sheep stamped paper!
