Happy New Year!

2011.....already!!! How did that happen????
I really can't believe that I last posted in October. Surely I have had stuff to write about or take pics of.
Well yes things have been happening. Some good and some bad and to be honest I am quite glad to see the back of 2010.

Christmas was nice but unfortunately both boys had flu and I was still recovering from a slight incident earlier in the month so we were all shattered to be honest.
George has been back to the docs in the last few days and is now on anti bs for an ear, chest and sinus infection!!!!!

I am counting my blessings however. Early in December I collapsed with a very severe allergic reaction. Luckily I had the sense to drive to the docs before I collapsed and in truth they saved my life (yes it really was that bad!!!!) I now have an epipen to take everywhere with me and can no longer take my medication for my arthritus or ibruphen which is a pain but i am here and that is a blessing.

As for the New Year I have a number of resolutions for my family and myself personally. My main ones are to put the four of us first and then to look after myself healthwise. I feel that recently I have been let down by some people (friends and family) and when I have needed them most I have been on my own (or so it feels)
The one constant has been hubs. He has been there for me when I needed him. A shoulder to cry on and an ear to listen to me. I really love him so much and know that whatever life throws at us we will face it head on and together.

Sorry for turning my first post in two months into a pity post. I really didn't mean to and hopefully tomorrow I can post a photo or two to show you.

Happy New Year to you all!!!!!!!!!

Times flis hu and you've had a lot to deal with lately.

Hope your boys are feeling much better and that the meds help George.

That allergic reaon was very scary, but at least now you have the epipen. I hop they can sort some meds out for your arthritis.

I don't think yor post was a pity post at all. You've turned the negative things to positive. I am sure with your family you will indeed take on anything that is thrown at you.

Take care hun.

Clare, you've been through an awful time, I just thank God you are still with us. Hoping 2011 will be a better one for you all. You just put yourself and your boys first, and you'll be ok.
Many thanks for still remembering me at Christmas too xx
