Where Did March Go.

Good Morning, At last I am feeling a bit more like my old self. I managed out for a run in the car yesterday for the first time. What a difference three weeks makes at this time of the year the Daffodils, Forsythia the Blackthorn have all got the Spring dresses on and the grass is green again and the trees are budding, it all looked so wonderful yesterday and even the sun was shining. It was so good to get out for a couple of hours. I would like to thank you all again for the good wishes and prayers. It has been just one thing after another a lot of was side effects from the very strong Antibiotics I was given. I have a bad allergy to penicillin so in makes prescribing antibiotics difficult for the doctors, the ones I ended up on were supposedly like Domestos (strong bleach) so no wonder I am suffering, still I am so much better. I think what was so alarming was the speed it knocked me down. I was fine on the Wednesday just a bit of a cough Thursday lunchtime I phoned for an doctors appointment and managed to get one at 5pm and by that time I was really unwell and went straight to bed when I got back and that was the beginning of my dreadful three weeks. Hopefully it is all behind me now, poor Stuart is absolutely exhausted trying to keep up with everything including the ironing but I think he has learned a lot and his cooking is coming on great too.Richard too has been trying to help cooking up a storm one evening and filling the freezer with homemade soups and pasta sauces, full of goodness he said.
Today we are waiting for the plumber yet again as the wash hand basin in our nice new bathroom is still leaking, it has never been right but with everything else that has been going on we had not noticed it again, and Tesco's shopping will be here this afternoon its just like Christmas love shopping online. Only made one mistake last week ordered a Quiche and it turned out it was an individual one we had ordered so there was not enough for us both so Stu bought another one locally.
Have been doing a lot of reading and thought it was very funny that the book I was reading in hospital was very aptly named 'The Book Of the Dead' by Patricia Cornwell on of the nurses thought it was very funny. Got through a few more books mostly rubbishy things but that all I could concentrate on. Well I think that's about it for now not a lot happens when you are not out and about but things will get better I hope. Till next time,
Love Joan.

It's good to hear you are at long last doing better. Spring is lovely and having such a nice day to be out in must have lifted your spirits for sure. We are still working at that one. No blooming here yet. Take good care ! 'On Ya'-ma

Welcome back Joan; pleased you're in finer fettle than the last time you posted. Getting out will have done you the world of good but you will wrap up warm won't you?

What did you think of 'Book of the Dead'? I am a great Cornwell fan and the book kept me gripped from start to finish, as hers usually do. I just wish I could see why she wants to make Marino the lout he is now as opposed to the soft-centred over-protective gentle giant he used to be. Well, I can see WHY but I wish she hadn't.

Now might be a better time to wish you a happy new year, seeing as the original didn't go to plan healthwise!

love, Angie, xx

Gosh, Joan, I'm wondering where the last two months went. I've been batting strep and sinus infections and never seem to have the energy to open up a blog. Finally, I'm hoping all is well. Glad you are feeling better. Our forsythia in the northern US still hasn't budded yet. It was a harsh winter. There are a few buds starting on things but slowly. Glad Stuart was so good about taking care of things for you. xx

Blogs I read.
