Has it been THAT long???

Oh my goodness - three-ish weeks between posts; what is with that??? There is no real reason to explain my absence other than trying to fight off the winter cold and flu season. I was only back at work for a week before it hit me like a Mack truck and I am still battling it. The aches and pains, sweats and fevers have finally subsided so now all that I have left to battle is sheer exhaustion and a rattly cough.
Most days as soon as I get home from work I climb into bed for an hour or so just to try and refresh for the night ahead - cooking dinner, getting homework and chores done - all the usual stuff. Then as soon as the boys are in bed, I am looking for the covers as well. I have never slept so much in my entire life I don't think and yet I am still soooooooooooo tired.
Today was the first day that I have gone through the entire day without having a little nanny nap and I am amazed that I am still awake this late at night. Well it isn't that late by my usual standards but in recent weeks it has been.
My other surprise for the weekend was that I actually managed to scrapbook - the first time in almost 6 weeks. Yep, I am still picking my chin up off the floor. Very simple layouts and one is a lift of Anthea . I used this as my inspiration to get back into the scrapping game. So Anthea, I hope you don't mind and thanks a BUNCH for inspiring me.

All of the photos are from our holiday at the coast at the end of June/start of July. Oh how I wish I was back at the beach, digging my toes in the sand and watching my boys doing their thing. This week is hump week of the term which means 5 down and 5 to go. Bring on the holidays so I can try and refocus on my scrapping again.
Thanks for stopping by. I promise I won't take so long to post next time.
