Today I realised who am I kidding, I am not a business woman, I am just a Mum. Some days I want to give all this up, the toll it takes on the family and all the copies of my best selling designs but then I get "that" order and I know I can never give this up.

NUMBER 1.Tell all family and friends they can only visit you on day 3.REASONBecause tubes everywhere, a mother Slurring and going in and out of consciousness frightens small children. My kids were that scared they clung to the wall on the other side of the room like they were on the 'rotor' at Luna park! Because you are in pain and look ugly, I know this because hubby thought it would be funny to take a picture, not as bad as my Dr's surgery one, but still bad. What is it with taking photos when I'm unconscious? Can't get one...
