Fever, chills, aches and a wracking cough.
Dearest reader I went to the clinic last Sunday evening
only to discover that what I actually had was bacterial pneumonia.
I have been taking life easy and following doctor's orders.
As one might expect I am on antibiotics as this is something the medical profession don't mess around with.
I can report that I am improving each day.
Work has taken a back burner and I am going to be off until I get the all clear from my GP.
This is my 3rd bout with this illness although it has been over 10 years since my last episode.
We all seem to have an area of weakness and it would appear that mine are my lungs.
this fragrant bouquet was delivered by my lovely DIL and our bonny red headed grand daughter
Little Miss Isla
who while bouncing up and down with excitement said
"Flowers ~ Happy ~ Flowers ~ Happy!"
A more welcome delivery I cannot imagine.
I have discovered something that many of you may or may not not know
You Tube has movies
all one needs to do is click on them to open them and they are there in their entirety!
Some films that I would have liked to view were only available in the US.
Object of Beauty is one such film and I remember enjoying it so much when it first came out that I saw it twice.
I have watched some of my favourites;
Sense and Sensibility
A Room with a View
I do adore a period drama.
I suppose that is why Downton Abbey has such appeal.
Mr. HB has been making the rounds to the market to keep us stocked in food.
Homemade soups have been such a comfort and so very easy to heat up and serve.
My appetite has been minimal
which has resulted in some immediate weight loss
which I must confess has given me a jump start ~ encouragement on my goal to shed a few pounds.
Reading in between movies I got into Tatler and devoured it cover to cover.
Thanks again to Natalie!
Mother popped over ever so briefly and dropped off this novel
It's Maeve's last book as it was finished just weeks prior to her death in July 2012.
I have done some shopping and online browsing.
Nordstroms have an amazing selection of SHOES....

New fresh cotton towels from Lands End
should be on their way.
White towels are The Humble Bungalow standard issue.
White towels never stay snow white for me as I refuse to use chlorine bleach.
The fish and environment may thank me and so might the towel makers!
I am getting a bit antsy and would dearly love to bundle up and go for a walk around the block.
Instead I have opened my bedroom windows to let some fresh air inside and closed to door to usher out the germs.
I hope that you are keeping well and in good spirits.
Do me a favour and go for a walk for me!
~ Thanks so much for popping by ~
Have a fabulous weekend!
