Woe is Me

I am sad to say that I am feeling very feeble :(

I actually only have a cold, but for some reason I become utterly pathetic when I have minor illnesses (such as colds)

As a result, I am unfortunately incapable of coming up with anything fantastically creative or even particularly interesting to post about *laughs*

So I shall leave you with a picture of a sock monkey that I have created for a swap on Ravelry. For anyone interested in joining swaps (which are lots of fun, as I posted about here and here), the best plan is to join a swap group, even if you've missed the deadlines for the latest one. That way, you'll have notice of any new ones that pop up.

I'm a member of a couple of groups, A Swap in Time which does seasonally related swaps along with a few others throughout the year, and The Odd Ducks, a group for swaps that don't really fit anywhere else (which is where the sock monkey swap came from).

So here's the monkey I made, which will have a whole load of other goodies packaged with it and sent off to America...

Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm off to whimper and sneeze a lot ;)


  1. Swaps are great fun, I love shopping for bargains and fun little things as much as getting the parcel. Your sock monkey is very cool. Hope you are feeling better soon

  2. I'm sorry you're not feeling well, I hate having colds...possibly more than other illnesses, nothing worse than having a runny nose or being bunged up to make you miserable.

    Your sock monkey is a cutie :)

    This is NorthernMonkey by the way...google is being silly and wouldn't let me comment from my account!

  3. Awwwww colds are totally awful, hope you are all snuggled and wrapped up!!

    I think your sock monkey is adorable and will definitely fit in with his new destination.

    Take loads of care and get better soon!

  4. Love the monkey, hate the cold, love you! Take care and get well soon. x x x x

  5. Being ill is rubbish. There must be something doing the rounds at the moment, as I am fighting off a cold as well, and most of my friends have had one in the last couple of weeks.

    Hope you feel better soon!

  6. I too hate being sick. Try to stay warm and relax. I hope you feel better soon.
    The sock monkey is adorable! I bet your swap partner will be thrilled.

  7. Poor you - I hate being ill. The one and only time in my life I had real proper catastrophe 'flu, I phoned up the NHS Direct hotline to warn them that I was dying... y'know just as a headsup for those call centre staff. They must have thought I was totally bonkers. I think I probably was totally bonkers. Feel better soon.

  8. I hope you feel better soon! I hate having a cold :(

  9. The monkey is too cute!

    Hope you feel better soon.

  10. Just what I need! More swap groups. ;) I've been enjoying the Color Swap group. Those packages have been fun.
