Good Afternoon, first of all Happy New Year I know it's the 5th already but thing have been a bit hectic here. New Years day was quiet and peaceful just the two of us, on the second we had a great bird watching trip with a friend, take a look its on my journal here then that night Stuart came down with some sort of tummy bug. Saturday was out postponed Christmas Dinner with the family and Richard's in -laws so Stuart put on a brave face and we went, he was miserable but we got through it but by the time we got home just about 5 he was shivering and had no heat in him at all. Got him upstairs and into bed with two hot water bottles and he was soon warmed through. He was not sick at all just felt sick and a bad stomach pains. He stayed in bed for most of yesterday and by evening was much better. Have had my nurses hat on and with all the running up and downstairs I am glad he is up and about today.
We awoke this morning to a covering of snow and had another heavy shower during the morning its now very nice all sunny and white, but it is very cold. I have been trying to read all your entries but am a bit behind, some I have read but not commented on but normal service will be resumed as soon as.
Will have to go duty calls. Till next time Love Joan.

The sun just peeped out here this morning but it is overcast so it won't last. Even when it is cold, the sun makes me feel better. Hope your Monday is a good one. I know it'll be better with Stuart feeling better too. 'On Ya'-ma

Poor Stuart, I hope he's doing better now. Seems like illness is striking a lot of your family this Christmas and new year. A very happy new year to you both. We had snow down here yesterday but most had gone by nightfall. Jeannette xx Alphabet entry

Hi Joan...Happy New Year to you, Stuart and family. I'm very behind here. Sorry to hear that Stuart was so ill for the family Christmas. Hope he is feeling better now. We are having freezing rain here mostly it seems. Have a good Wednesday....xx

Jeannette said...

Happy New Year to you Joan. Glad Stuart is over his bug. You got a lot more snow than we did, now we have freezing fog.

Bunny said...

Glad Stuart is better. I am the epitome of dedicated nursing for about 24 hours, then cracks appear. I can cope with light diets, but get a bit ratty with requests for assistance with the television schedules
