I have been feeling a little unwell for a couple of weeks - the usual tiredness that we all battle through due to over doing it but I sent myself off to have some blood tests on Monday.
By Tuesday, I was experiencing extreme joint pain, inflamation and lots of fatigue. It continued up until today where I have started to feel mildly better. My results came through indicated that I have parvovirus - a virus that you catch from kids that have had the same thing - it shows as bright red cheeks in kids but in adults it shows as rheumatoid arthritic like symptoms.
Fortunately, it's something that will get better with rest but I am so disappointed that the Doctor has suggested I not be in contact with anyone
(particularly pregnant women) for a little bit longer.
So, what does that mean for me?
I was scheduled this long weekend to speak at 11am for Scrapbooking Memories Magazine in their STUDIO at the Scrapbook and Papercraft Show.
Nor can I see my layouts on display in the Scrapbooking Memories Masters Display area.
It's really disappointing.
My apologies to anyone who was planning to go along and hear me speak.
Kristy and Cassie, from Scrapbooking Memories, have my notes and have suggested that they present my talk on my behalf. Wish I could have been there in person.
I'd love to hear how all about the convention
and I'll be thinking of you all especially at 11am each day.
PS. Forgot to add .... thank you for all the lovely feedback about the Art cards.
shillito.rachel.m - I'm having these cards printed at Officeworks - a cheap black and white copy but done on a 200gsm white card so they look nicer. And by all means, this is not an original idea from me, feel free to have a play and do it for your school too
- just note that it is alot of work.
