Wheezles and sneezles

Christopher Robin
Had wheezles
And sneezles,
They bundled him
Into
His bed.
They gave him what goes
With a cold in the nose,
And some more for a cold
In the head.
They wondered
If wheezles
Could turn
Into measles,
If sneezles
Would turn
Into mumps;
They examined his chest
For a rash,
And the rest
Of his body for swellings and lumps.
They sent for some doctors
In sneezles
And wheezles
To tell them what ought
To be done.
All sorts and conditions
Of famous physicians
Came hurrying round
At a run.
They all made a note
Of the state of his throat,
They asked if he suffered from thirst;
They asked if the sneezles
Came after the wheezles,
Or if the first sneezle
Came first.
They said, "If you teazle
A sneezle
Or wheezle,
A measle
May easily grow.
But humour or pleazle
The wheezle
Or sneezle,
The measle
Will certainly go."
They expounded the reazles
For sneezles
And wheezles,
The manner of measles
When new.
They said "If he freezles
In draughts and in breezles,
Then PHTHEEZLES
May even ensue."

Christopher Robin
Got up in the morning,
The sneezles had vanished away.
And the look in his eye
Seemed to say to the sky,
"Now, how to amuse them to-day?"

By A A Milne

Oh been poorly with the wheezles and sneezles this week.  The only way to get better is to snuggle up with a good book and a soft cushion.  I'm reading "The Battersea Park Road to Paradise" by Isobel Losada a great way to lift the soul and just the ticket for turning this wheezeyly, sneezely Christopher Robin like girl into a bouncy Tigger like one.  Read the book and you will know what I am on about! 

Here are just a few soft snuggly upcycled cushions that I have created this week, all stuffed with Cornish organic sheeps wool. Be assured, they have not been in contact with any of my germs.  I have my own special snuggly cushion and I call it Dave!
