Weekend Catchup

This weekend did not go as planned. Mr B came home poorly from work on Friday and did not get better. He spent the whole weekend in bed with a sky-high fever (among other, very nasty, symptoms). Mr B never gets ill and he's never taken a day off sick in his life, but today, unfortunately, broke that tradition. I've never seen him as sick... I really really hope he gets better soon.

I spent my time doing nursely-housewifey duties and though I did get a lot done I would have much rather have had a healthy Mr B and a fun-filled weekend and not a tidy home.

Mr B said to me last night "we never realise how good it is to feel healthy until we're ill".

Please please please Mr Doctor give Mr B something that will help him get better (he's at the doctor's as I type).

This weekend brought some new and very sweet advent calendar entries...

On Saturday it was a tiny dog. One day, when Mr B and I live in a big house in the countryside with chickens and a vegetable patch, we would like a dog like this...

Isn't he just the cutest?! Those blue eyes.... awwww!

Yesterday's entry was a book and it got me thinking... what are your favourite books and why? My favourite childhood books are all 3 Faraway Tree books by Enid Blyton... so magical. Now my favourties are 1984 by George Orwell, The Pianist by Władysław Szpilman and If This is a Man/The Truce by Primo Levi.

This time next week and Christmas will almost be here!! I can't wait. Have a good day everyone!


  1. I'm so sorry your hubby is sick!! I'm sick too...woke up yesterday with whatever my husband had. Stay well!!
