Busy but not like a bee

A busy bee on my mint

Today has been one of those days actually the last two days have been those days. The kind when you are busy chasing your own tail. I have been to the hospital, to the doctor  and we will be back at the doctor tomorrow too . Tim was bitten by a red back spider on Sunday afternoon and although he didn't think too much of it at first, he is reeling a little now. All of the typical symptoms but it his blood pressure which is of greatest concern to the medical fraternity. He has only slept for about an hour since Sunday night and it is terrible seeing him so out of sorts. It is both amazing and alarming what harm such a small being can do. He will be all right and keeps assuring me he will be btter tomorrow but I think it might take a bit longer than that.

On to happier things. I just found Amber's great blog and she is having a giveaway . And although I would really like to win the book myself, I think it is nice to share the chance with my blogging friends. That's what friends do. Even if I'm not the lucky winner, I am glad I have found a new blog to read.

Take care,
Tracy

Yes, I hope he starts feeling better soon. We have some redbacks in our shed - time to let off a spider bomb this weekend, I think! Bet wishes to Tim for a speedy recovery.

Best wishes for a speedy recovery. I have known a couple of people bitten by them. One an adult was ill for a few days and off colour for several more. My cousin, then seven was ill for quite a long time, some weeks but he was small. A classic tale of the redback in the dunny.

Nasty things and I hope he is over it very soon.

That's scary - I'm hoping for a very quick turnaround.
