Happy Birthday to Ya!

I just want to apologise to all  those who I regularly visit....my M.E has been an absolute toe rag this last few weeks, with me crafting in between sleeping. I've been sleeping on average 18-20 hours a day, so crafting has been done in between eating & sleeping lol! Hopefully this will go away really soon, as I am fed up of not being able to play much with Nico or see Nige & the girlies for very long! Nige did drag me out of the house on Saturday as we has promised to help with a bird of prey show. Don't really remember much of it lol I walked around in a daze. Sunday we managed a trip in to Wales to Lake Vwerny I slept all the way there, had a walk, fell asleep as soon as we got in the car again & after we had had burgers cooked by Nige I got back in the car & fell asleep while they went off wondering lol!! Then I slept all the way home as well, don't remember getting in to bed! Lol good job Nige is patient with me lol!
