In Dublin's fair city ... not

Oh, woe is me! I should have been in Dublin, having girlie lunches and massages and manicures and ... oh, lots of fun with two of my dearest friends, Mags and Adrienne.

Instead, I'm at home, still in my dressing gown and feeling just a tad sorry for myself.

I went to Chester on Sunday for a course but by Monday morning I was feeling very under the weather - stricken down by the 'dreaded lurgie'. Unable to face food and just wanting to put my head down on the table, I decided I'd better come home.

Thank goodness for daughters, especially mine, who made me drink some nasty 'dehydration' stuff and kept my spirits up.

Felt a little better by Wednesday and packed for my trip and had something to eat - dry toast. Big mistake.

Unpacked yesterday about the same time my plane was taking off.

They do say every cloud has a silver lining and mine is ... I've lost five pounds. That's 'lbs', not '£s'!

The piece I've pictured above is mine ... but only because I bought it. It's a piece by Jackie of some Celtic crosses and I love it and look at it every day. It's complex, spiritual and exquisitely stitched. Like my daughter, it lifts my spirits.

This is getting embarassing!
I hope you are soon feeling better. You must be if you can blog about it now.
