Taking a summer break

Hi Everybody!

June has sped by much too quickly And we are heading towards  July. In a few weeks the shops will be full of Halloween decorations and a few weeks after that the Christmas decorations will be everywhere.

But in the meantime I'm planning on having a break for the whole of July. At the moment I have 2 or 3 days where I feel more or less normal, then I get violent shivering fits and my temperature soars and I feel really ill for some days. This seems to be caused by my auto-immune illness. Anyway, to cut a long story short, I am taking time off till the beginning of August. I have one more tag for Sandie's holiday challenge at Tag Tuesday; this is what I want to do for the next 4 weeks:


Have a great month, take care, 
And I'll be back soon!

  31. I noticed you missing from the AJJ blog and began to get worried that you were ill and in hospital or something. So sorry you are not feeling well but sincerely hope that your break during August will do you a lot of good and you return to blogland feeling much better.
    In the meantime, I just love that tag you have made. Looks like a beautiful watercolour to me.
    Take care, I will miss you and your art.
    Hugs, Neet xx
