Make It Monday #38

Hello everyone!

Hope this Monday finds you well, atleast better than me and mine hopefully.

This last week has been a pretty bad one in my household. I have probably had a total of 20 hours sleep in the whole week as my boys have all been sick with a nasty cold that has seen them coughing their poor little lungs up each night and my youngest has been throwing up each time he coughs. Now after all that I have come down with it. So I am sorry that I was not able to get around to commenting on all your fabulous entries last week. The continued problems I am experiencing with blogger have not helped either.

Enough of my sob story now, lol. On to the more exciting stuff like
this week's featured blogger,

which is....................

And this little beauty is just a taste. I suggest you make yourself a cuppa and get comfy before you head on over to Grace's blog because you are going to want to stay a while.

Aww! I am so sorry to hear that you have had so much sickness in your home.

My hubby and son, has also been battling a nasty cold and it's taken them a long time for the cough to end. Thankfully, I've done my very best to not catch it, and have been using a lot of Lysol and taking extra Vitamin C.

Thanks for a fun week and I do hope your family will be better very soon!!
