Not sure now I've written the post title whether it's entirely appropriate? Oh, what the heck, am sticking with it anyhoo!
Today I have been feeling mightily under the weather after puking for many hours during the night, so much so that my throat began to bleed! Very alarming!

The little green 'tash looks much better in the flesh! The girls thought he looked very funny and I thought it was highly fitting for the mood he has been in all afternoon!
