FNSI sign ups for July

You know what I'm thinking don't you?   WHERE DID THAT TIME GO?????

Yes I have been caught up with my son, who is still doing well, so well in fact he has increased his work hours, has a promotion to kitchen manager and is up for a pay rise.  He's moving back to Townsville next week, has organised a unit of his own and now  has a fridge, washing machine, microwave and lounge which will be delivered when he moves in.

He is still seeing his psychologist weekly,  psychiatrist monthly and mental health nurse whenever he feels he needs to talk,  but they, along with us, are all so happy with his improvements.   He still has his moments, but it is all looking upwards so all I can say is, for the grace of God and the many prayers I've said and you may have said on our behalf.....


This past week I've been down with the flu or a virus or something.  I went to work last Saturday and by that night, the tickly throat and itchy ears began to emerge.  By the next morning I was so lethargic and feeling lousy that I didn't leave the lounge much for 4 days.  Although I'm much better I still have some tiredness and muck in my chest.....and then these weird things appeared on my hand the other day and a few smaller ones on my tongue today.  I don't know what they are.... almost like shingles?!
These have progressively gotten worse over the past few days and are not itchy but super sore to touch.  My boss seems to think it's a 'hot spot' for the virus coming out of my system....I really don't know.  We'll see in time I guess, but it is a pain, literally!

So with all that happening, I've been a little late in posting our FNSI sign ups...thank goodness for Rike reminding me on Insta today!

Here it is, with the promise there will be two draws this week....one for June and one for July.   Hopefully life will settle a little now and I'll get back in the rhythm of it all *fingers crossed*.

As I've left it a little later than normal, it would be great if you could share the FNSI button and link on your social pages to help me get some involvement as we all know how much fun and inspiration it is, looking at everyone's Friday Night favourites!  That would be amazing!

Off to make another warm cup of lemon and honey tea before bed.....
xox sugary hugs  and sweet dreams :o)

This could be shingles, and if it is, the sooner you get on medication for it, the better the outcome will be. Shingles can become chronic if left untreated. I had a mild case of shingles years ago and WOW were they ever painful! Good luck, and don’t wait to have this checked out!

Go to the doctor...just in case.
See you Friday night with needle in hand.

Great news on your son. Could you have hand, foot and mouth disease? It can make adults feel pretty lousy. Looking forward to Friday and hoping you will be feeling fighting fit by then.

Hi Wendy,
Great news about your Son. All the best to him. Healing white light and big hugs sent to you. I hope your hand is feeling better soon. If it is Shingles there is a needle you can have which lessens the symptoms, but is needed within a few days.
Looking forward to Friday. I have been busy with some sewing all week. I will reveal what I have been doing soon.

I hope you are getting well soon! Are you working with little children? Your illness sounds like "hand mouth foot" illness. (That's a direct translation from German to English. I don't know the English name. Sorry!) I had it some weeks ago and our little son, too. Not very nice, but after one week all was over and good again.
It's fantastic that your son is doing so well! I wish you all the luck you can get!!!

Greetings from Germany,
Rike
