Not Fair!!!!

The weekend started out wonderful!!! Poor DD2 has been fighting the dreaded Glandular Fever virus for the past couple of weeks so, seeing as she had missed out on the last week of her school hols (and worked for the first week!) we decided she needed a break. So we took her camping to Brunswick Heads on the Northern NSW coast. We went with another family (her bestie, bestie's brother & girlfriend and bestie's Dad Gary) and even though it was a bit chilly we had a most wonderful relaxing 3 days :o). Here she is fishing the Brunswick River with her friend Lisa ....... BUT ............. unfortunately when she was getting ready for school yesterday morning ... feeling all refreshed and raring to go I might add ...... she slipped while making her bed and dislocated her kneecap!!!!
Now THAT'S NOT FAIR!!!! She's spent the past 2 weeks on the couch hardly able to even speak because of her sore throat and ears, then when she's finally better this happens!!!!
Looking quite forlorn after finding out she'd have to wear this brace (and use crutches) for the next 2 weeks............... And finally with all the lovely pressies she got for being such a brave soldier ;o).........
Gosh, is there anything worse than seeing one of your precious children in such agony ... :o(. God Bless you my darling Bear ... mwah!!!
Here's another little reminder that you can get a freebie Christmas pattern from here!!! THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH for your lovely comments about my design, I'm blown away by all your kind words :o). I'd love to answer you all individually but I fear I'd be here all day to do that LOL ... please know though that I'm chuffed to bits that you like it and I can't wait to share the other two stitcheries with you :o)!!! I'll be giving you the other 2 stitchery patterns that go with this one FREE over the next couple of weeks, but only for a limited time :o)!!!!! Here's a sneaky peek of a sleepy little elf for you ;o) ............. Keep a watch on our Among The Gumtrees Blog as there are still lots of freebie Christmas patterns coming your way over the coming weeks!!! We're having such FUN sharing these with you :o)!!!!

Oh the poor thing. Hope she gets better soon. Another two weeks rest might not hurt and will make sure that glandular fever doesn't come back. Its dreadful.

Hope your daughter is feeling better soon!!
Am in love with the little mouse and am hoping I won't miss out on your other patterns as we are leaving the last week of this month thru the first few days of Nov. Will not have access to the internet while camping up in the mountains with the snow! (I hope no snow, but never know) It's done it to us before!!
Take Care

OH NO! Things happen in threes! Tell me there was something else before this?
Hope she's not ringing the "bell" too much for you to jump and do things for her. LOL!

Marielle said...

Wendy B said...

Having been there myself, I know the pain your poor daughter is in...tell her to do EXACTLY as she's told, restwise, cause if she doesn't, it'll turn around and bite her in years to come (I'm living proof after several knee surgeries!!) By the way, i adore your greedy mousey...that's just how I feel after Chrissie lunch!!!! (but one day in the year's ok.... isn't it???lol)
sweet hugs to you and your daughter

Hi Joy,
send DD2 my best wishes for a speed rcovery. Some people cry´s out loud HERE to every complication when they come around (like my little Sister, She was in hospital for nearly 6 month and had many surgerys to stand throu and recovers now on the sofa of my MOM )so say DD2 to be quiet, when the complications come around - so they could´nt find her ;) !!

Very beautiful your christmas design. Thanks a lot for sharing it with us.

Greetings out of Germany
