the super combo post so i can take some time out

Greetings all,
Phew, what a week of feeling lousy.  So this is a combination post to cover my regular blog link ups to wrap up the week . . . plenty of eye candy, enjoy . . .
Our Creative Space this Thursday . . . delicious handmade vintage bias binding by Cinti's mummy over at My Poppet - i can not wait to create with these . . .
Things I'm Loving with Paisley Jade on Friday . . . more from Cinit at My Poppet - her latest offerings from Japan, i'm a sucker for Bento boxes & anything in the cute & quirky category . . .
 Cinti has a cute blog too, with 'postcards' of her latest trip to Japan.
 After all the Tupperware my 4 have lost at school over the years, these will not be going in school bags but for kept special for cute picnics, heavily supervised by me!!
I love this squirrel series, just adorable & a matching spoon cover, glee!!  Check out Poppet in the Post now, lots of goodies on special & more Japanese joy-things-which-make-you-smile being added shortly.  I love that my children can speak Japanese, although, i can not, they plot against me, but they love all these knick knacks.
 For when Saturday rolls around, it's Maxabella Loves' I'm Grateful For . . . my children taking care of me.  So i had the world's most awful migraine ever, which left me home & unable to take the children to school yesterday, i could not stop throwing up, horrible, just the most awful feeling.  I came out of the shower to find my 3rd daughter had made me up a bed on the lounge. 
 The only thing i've been able to keep down for 48 hours, some avocado dip & whatever the hell those green crackers are - they are slime green & i can't even tell you what they taste like!!
 My middle girl here dressed as a waitress (how beautiful is the Em & Ei vintage apron??) & served me (topped up my glass of water) all day.  Such an doll, with a cute French accent.  Then i got her bill, including a $2 tip for every top up.
 It was rainy, gloomy & they should have been in school, but they entertained themselves around me . . . playing dress ups from their wardrobes - my son is pretending to be a ganster, 1940's style.  I think the Peter Alexander jammies make it, non??
 Here he is shooting me with his magic stick thingy my sister bought him.  Nice one.  I'd consider it a bit dark that my son was trying to shoot me, but he said his gun only shoots kisses, crisis of violence averted.
Thanks everyone, wishing you health & happiness this weekend, right back at me too!!  Love Posie

Sorry to hear you have been unwell. Those crackers look like the ALDI salt and cracked pepper crackers - they weren't very popular round our house:)

Cate said...

Oh you poor thing!! I've never had a migrane (yes, counting my blessings) - but have heard how debilitating they can be. Thank goodness your little ones are now big enough to be such a wonderful help to you when you need it.
And thank you so much for taking the time to be so supportive over on my last post. I really appreciate it Posie :-)
