Samantha in Wunderland!

Well! Long time no post!! What a start to the year we have had....firstly Nige (up to now) has been at home the last 5 weeks with a virus. Not a well boy! Then about three weeks ago I managed to come down with a bout of gastric flu. Ewwwww I have never felt so ill, much rather go through child birth than that again, or even my hysterectomy. The stomach cramps were horrific, just glad Nige was at home, cus I think I would have been in hospital if he wasn't. I slept for 5 days & didn't really get out of bed for 10...madness!! Anyhoos all good now thankfully. Hope you are all ok & well? Hugs for those that need them xx
