Ill in bed with a dull bug. Nothing dramatic enough to warrant sympathy, just a boring, wintery, ache all over and feel very cross sort of low viral load. My glands are like large walnuts.

So there is only time for a quick shot of the hill in the gloaming, because there must always be a shot of the hill; it is my dedicated promise. (Why? Why? Feeling is: I must take it every day because I said so, and if I do not do what I said then buildings will fall and mountains will crumble.)

  1. You might not feel it warrants sympathy, but I am sending some *anyway* so there! :) ~ hope you feel much better soon and that you are flanked in bed by the Duchess and the Pigeon.

  2. Dull bugs are a total pain . Get better soon.

  3. I do know that very crossed feeling so well!! I get dull boring bugs a bit too often for my liking, and get very irritated and temporarily inclined to disown my own body.
    Though last year I discovered a wonderful German product called 'Kaloba' drops, Pelargonium sidoides (South African Geranium) root extract, which, if I take when symptoms first appear and keep taking until they have gone, seems to nip the bug in the bud, or at least dim down the symptoms to such a level, that I quickly manage to forget about them - always a sure sign of recovery. May be worth a try! Keep warm and cosy under the watchful eyes of the Lovely Ones.

  4. Hope someone is bringing you soup and tea with honey. Feel better! xx
    ps. Christina's on the right track -- the pelargonium drops are called Umcka here. I swear by them.

  5. I do hope you will soon get better.

  6. Hope you feel better soon. It's a dull sort of January day anyway - best spent in bed.

    I took a picture out of my window every day for years in our old country place - now we're here in the city I love browsing the varying landscapes from snow to rain to cows grazing to passing fox hunts. A view definitely worth recording. (No mountain, alas) xx

  7. Such very kind get well wishes; thank you.
