My NEC Stash!

Morning blogging buddies.

Well my bad chest that I was moaning about the other day has now turned into a chest infection, according to the GP this morning.

I wasn't getting any better, felt rotten last night, so thought I'd best go and see him, 
I'm so exhausted with it as well, I even wake up tired.

Of course it wasn't helped by going to the 'NEC crafts'  yesterday, I didn't feel on top of the world but thought I'd be OK, just thought I'd got a cough, so off we went, hubby said he'd do all the driving so that was fine by me I just sat and watched the world wizz by.

The place was heaving as usual but I managed to buy some stash, after a couple of hours it was obvious that I was getting worse and that maybe It was more than just a cough, I didn't feel good at all, it was very warm in there so that didn't help.

I gave hubby the bags to hang onto whilst I went and had another quick whip round and he went for a cuppa, I knew there was something I was going to get that I'd seen earlier but the stall was too far down the hall and I was fast running out of steam by this time, I just hadn't got the energy to walk that far, so when I re-grouped with hubby we set off for home, it was only shortly after 1 pm, unheard of for me to come away that early!

In the car back home I could barely keep my eyes open, I felt so rough I was almost in tears, was I glad to get back through the front door! it wasn't long before I was in bed, I didn't even unpack my stash, how bad is that!!!

So now I'm on a course of antibiotics so I hope they should get rid of this once and for all, I seem to have been bad for weeks.

I've unpacked my stash now and taken a picture for you to see, I don't think I did too badly considering I was having to drag myself around the place!

I'm hoping to be back tomorrow with a card, I'll see how I feel.

Enjoy the weekend everyone.

So here it is, my NEC stash.....

What a lot of goodies Jacee. Sorry to hear you're under the weather again. How frustrating not to be able to enjoy your time at the NEC like you would normally. Hope you have some antibiotics now to clear it all up. Hope you feel better soon and have fun with the CD's (think I have all of these).

Hi Jacee,
I do hope you haven't overdone it, with your visit to the NEC.
You take care now as I had my slipped disc just after I went last year.
I really miss not going this year as I visit my sister at the same time.
Your stash looks wonderful.
Happy crafting with it all.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Neat stash there! I always feel like it's my birthday or something when I come home with goodies like that. I especially like the magazines you picked. We used to be able to buy them here in our local craft stores, but they stopped selling them. Lots of neat ideas in those magazines.
