Almost human again


A nasty cold crept up behind me last week, wrestled me to the floor and left me there, coughing my lungs out and sneezing my pounding head off. I was poorly! That cold really hit me hard and put me out of action for a few days. I tried to look at the lovely blogs I follow but my brain wasn't functioning and I'm afraid I wasn't even able to comment on them, somehow my brain just couldn't translate the wonderful thoughts I had into any sort of action. Sorry gals! But I am getting better and feeling almost human again, so I should think that as from tomorrow things will be back to normal.

I want to say a very big thank you to all you really great people for your birthday wishes, and a huge thank you ( and a big cyber slap for being horrid to little me ) to JJ for writing me such a, errrmmm, long poem. Boy, that gal can talk some, going on and on and on and on............. I wasn't in any fit state for birthday celebrations and even worse, the next day was our 29th wedding anniversary and we had planned to go to our favourite Thai restaurant, but that had to be cancelled as well. But there is nothing to stop us from going out to dinner sometime this week, hurrah!

I had two lovely packages arrive in the last couple of days - from Beki the lushious goodies from Michela's pamper swap and from the very generous Deb of the linenslaceandlattes blog I received two pretty vintage aprons, which I had won in her giveaway. I haven't taken any photos yet, but I'll promise pics for tomorrow!

Wow, short post this, and no photos either! Hmm, thats not good, lets have a quick looksie whether I can find a couple of pics which I haven't shown before.
Oooh yes yes yes, photos of my most favourite dessert, Whisky Trifle made by my darling husband. His is the bestest trifle ever!


Droooooooooooooool! I have to ask my sweetheart to make me one tomorrow, I think. Its bound to be good for me, recovering from that nasty cold.

I'll try and visit all your blogs properly tomorrow. Until then, toodlepip! xx

Oh you poor old thing! Oh dear I mean youthful!! Oh golly I'll be in trouble now too. So glad to hear you are on the mend. I was going to email you today to see what on earth was going on with you. Thought you might be too busy sorting your boy out.

Well see if you can find a little bit of sun to knock that cold in the head. Feel better real soon, love Sarah xxx

I was thinking about you today and reflecting on your absence from the blogging scene... so glad to see you back! I do hope you're feeling really better now? If not, eat more whisky trifle. If so, eat whisky trifle to celebrate!

I'm sure Mrs Beeton reccommended Whisky trifle as an after flu pick-me-up.
Take care of yourself, get really well.

Helsie said...

Sorry I missed your birthday but it sounds like you did too!! Happy Belated Birthday and Happy anniversary too. Just have a double celebration at the Thai restaurant. We love Thai too and try to visit our favourite restaurant at least once a fortnight.

Croap Queen said...

I don't really have much to say other than "uh oh, watch out ladies, she's feeling better". (I can confirm this by the amount of nagging she did last night on MSN).

Suppose I ought to be polite and say I'm so glad to hear you're feeling much better missus, heehee :-)
