Today, I had thought my grateful photo would be quite different. You see, I was meant to go to a blogger event. My.First.One.Ever! I was looking forward to it. It was a riverside barbeque organised by Jacqui of b-Brand (who also blogs over at CRAP Mamma) and Lenards Chicken. Not only was I looking forward to taste testing the Lenards Chicken delights but I was looking forward to meeting some other bloggers. The weather today was beautiful too! Unfortunately though, I have been sick. I haven’t felt well for a few days – have had some headaches and just generally feeling tired and off. It wasn’t until yesterday afternoon that the high temperature came and downhill I went from there. Regardless, I got up this morning determined to go. I dosed up with Panadol, got dressed, did my make-up and eventually fell on the bed in defeat. I was just too sick. Hubby had the final decisive word when he said “look at you – don’t be ridiculous – you’re too sick”. He was right.
So instead, I stayed home in bed and stalked the #lenardsBBQ on Twitter and Instagram. I had my puppies for company…and Jamie *sigh*. Jamie is a character in the book you see pictured. This is the third book in the Diana Gabaldon Outlander Series and I am loving it. He is from the 1700’s and is Scottish. Dinne try to claim Jamie as yours to swoon over. He is mine! Aye that be so! (that is me doing a poor job of trying to talk like Jamie does)
I’m happy to report that after a day in bed (with the puppies and *blush* Jamie haha) and with the help of Panadol, I am feeling much improved tonight. I am hopeful that tomorrow I will be much better as we have tickets to go and see my daughter perform in the production she is in!
The photograph today is one I tweeted earlier to show whoever was interested my sick-bed companion. It was taken with my phone and has a filter applied.
I’m grateful to my friend (you know who you are) who recommended the Diana Gabaldon ‘Outlander Series’ to me! I’m also grateful that I seem to be feeling much better tonight *touch wood*.
