Down but not out

Hi lovely friends, I'm writing this from my hospital bed. I became quite sick with a nasty bug last week and after a couple of days at my mums I wasn't getting better & ended up in here. The good news is I am slowly on the mend which is a huge relief. I have missed my family so much and at times have been very down.

Bright moments have cheered me up though, visits and cards, texts and love sent from all over. Our cake stall too was a great success. As well as making just over $1500 it was a really amazing community event. So many gorgeous locals contributed by baking, buying, organizing and sharing their generous spirits. I'm sure the money raised will be of some help to those affected by the devastating floods in Queensland who have a hard road ahead of them.


Time for a bit of a lie down now, feeling a bit pooped. But I'll be back! See you soon sweeties xo

Oh dear Beck I hope you get better very soon. How horrible for you to end up in hospital, you must be so worn out from everything it will probably do you the world of good to have a good rest in there until your better. I am sure your family miss you heaps but you have to look after yourself first otherwise us mums cant look after anyone else! Lots of hugs to you and congrats on such a successful cake stall too.

was thinking about you today Beck. i hope you feel better soon.
i know from another friend that hospital can be one of those experiences that leave you more exhausted & down than before you went in there, so i wish that you get out of there soon.
many hugs to you ♥
