When will it stop......

Quite frankly I've had enough. Prince Philip is not the only one to get taken down during the Jubilee celebrations by the howling gales. I went to Dorset for the long weekend, to take the sea air, celebrate my Goddaughter's 7th birthday and eat red, white and blue cake. Having enjoyed rude health for the whole winter, before, after and during Christmas..... for which I am traditionally cold-stuffed-and-coughing........ I now have a monumental cold that has resulted in bed rest.....in June. And so I am going to get away from it all for a short foreign break....... where at least the rain has an accent.
I leave you with a picture of what summer can look like.........

Top tip: Ginger Beer is much better than Barley Water or Lucozade as a sick-bed tipple.

  6. Hello:
    Oh, get well soon. A summer cold is so very miserable and all we hear about is the ghastly weather in England.

    Yes, take flight. We are basking in temperatures of 30C, so 'sur le continent' is where you need to be.We always swear by red wine when ill.......it does not particularly help with the symptoms but it makes one lose the will to care.

    Take care!!

    I developed the strongest desire for Ribena of all things when I was down for three weeks in February. I've never been so glad to have a fridge with and ice machine.

  15. The lovely thing about Europe is that you can go a few miles and drop into a different world. We go a few miles, and well, we've just gone a few miles.

  20. My only comment must be that if you wish to stay healthy, keep away from small children. They carry and swap germs, like postage stamps or Dinky toys. Best wishes.
