The Sickness

Our house is full of sickness at the moment. All the kids bar Peta have the horrible cough/snotty nose/cold that has been going around and I have had it over the weekend and am still not over it. Usually I have a great stash of my natural remedies around the house but I have got to the bottom of the barrel on just about everything and I am broke to boot!! So, have had to make do with a couple of cell salts and Phoebe's natural croup tincture.

White tail spiders have invaded my house and I have had two big mothers in the last two days!! I am afraid of spiders at the best of times but white tails just make me want to shake and cry. Not good for the anxiety disorder as I find myself constantly checking the ceilings and walls and floor for the wankers!!

Thanks for the nice comments on the poem, I thought I had better mention that I didn't write it - it was the words on a card that a beautiful lass on the other side of the planet sent me when she found out I was in the pits of despair.

Darn about the colds/coughs... hope you all get better quick. White tail spiders... we get lots in our house too, nasty things they are eh? I don't freak out unless they are directly over my head on the ceiling, then I do!

I've never seen a white tailed spider, but living in the bush I'm sure they are around.

Hope your household is all well again soon, it's that time of year isn't it? Change of season!

I was just about to say the same as Kate, everyone seems to get sick as the weather changes.

It's really lovely that someone has taken the time to find you something so moving and post it to you, talk about warm fuzzies. What a beautiful person. I hope you have tucked it away and so can get it out for a read as you need it.
