A woeful week

It started off well enough on Monday, with lovely blue skies and nice drives out in the country to see some far flung clients. Β On Monday I spotted the snail~mail and dumb~phone combo on one of my journey’s

and on Tuesday I spotted this field, in which the lake pond thing, I think, is a consequence of the heavy rainfall we’ve had over the past couple of years.

Lots of farm land has been flooded over the past couple of years and some of the resultant ponds have never quite retreated. You can see a fence trotting out into the water going nowhere, and those trees started out on dry land!

Then on Wednesday I started feeling a little off during the day, and by the time I got home, I was absolutely poorly 😦

So for the past 5 days I’ve been miserable, full of not nice stuff up my nose and on my chest. I had 4 days off, the weather was glorious and I couldn’t do anything but mope and read my books. I don’t get poorly much, yes I get aches and pains, and niggles, but colds/flu etc usually pass me by. Not this time though!! I mean, my eyes were so stingy and runny I couldn’t wear make-up for 3 days!!!! So I couldn’t go out of the house, couldn’t do shopping or photographing, and was a total recluse. I tried to cook dinner for Phil and made a total cock up of it and resorted to toast and take-outs instead. (Take out WAS yummy though – curry πŸ™‚ )

I had to miss visiting Phil’s family gathering as his younger sister and hubby had come up from the Isle of Wight to visit and were staying with his older sister, so there was a big get-together, with buffet, and I would have loved to have gone and taken photo’s of everyone, but Phil had to go alone and I had a snooze instead.

Sophie wanted to go on a shoot on Sunday too and I just could not do that either, so all in all a rubbish week.

So not many photo’s for the blog, I did manage to try and catch the sunlight in my spider webs on the bird feeder (those spidey’s sure are prolific!)

and also hung out my bedroom window to catch the lovely cloud formations. It would be so much nicer if I could bulldoze the rest of the houses out of my view, but you have to work with what you got sometimes.

Anyway, in spite of still being a bit crock, I went back to work today (more fool me) and struggled through. I had to really as Phil is on nights and needs to sleep through the day, which would have been nigh on impossible for him with me coughing like Calligula’s nephew, and I may have ended up with the same fate if I had!

I suppose the good news is that this is a shorter post than usual for my dear reader to trawl through πŸ™‚

  1. Oh no! I’m so sorry you’ve been ill. That is never fun and it sure puts a damper on everything.

    Despite that, you’ve managed to take beautiful photographs. Those sky shots in particular are magnificent! Your sense of humor, as ever, shines through.

    I’m glad the spiders have given you such great webs to photograph. Get well! Sounds like you are on the mend, but these things have a way of weaving back through. Rest young lady! That’s an order! πŸ™‚

  2. Now how could I possibly like this post?? So sorry you were sick. Being sick is the worst, but it helps you appreciate how good it feels to just feel normal. I hope you’re feeling better by now!
